I believe I bought one back in January. It shows up on my bank statement as backspintee.com I cannot for the life of me find an email receipt and I don't know where I bought it from. Does anyone else have this problem?

EDIT: JUST GOT IT IN! 4/20/19 Will report back.

I just ordered one and should have it early next week. i will post info and reviews after we work with it a bit. It is spring break here in Sconnie and the last foot of snow we got last week just melted, so we should have some outside time avail.

Based on the normal inconsistency from my daughter I would have to actually video the throw and compare to the DK. But based on a few it seems to capture vertical ok based on a clock face. Or maybe horizontal, I don’t know the correct terminology. But when I say axis I think it may only find it compared to the ground. Meaning I am not sure it shows the yaw. If it shows a 6-12 direction pitch it may not be a straight up and down pitch as in a drop ball. My DD does not try specifically for a drop and any of her pitches would have a bit of yaw to it. When it shows a 7-1 pitch i was first assuming that was the fastball 6-12 with yaw. But realized it was more of a missed pitch. So even without the left right axis it is still showing decent to vertical. Would be nice to have both but maybe I am missing something.

Hope this makes sense.

Fanboi,

How is the velocity reading accuracy? My DD isn’t a pitcher but overhand velo has been an area of concentration lately.

I think velocity is low by at least 10 mph

I don’t have another device to compare vs. but Older DD’s boyfriend has the pocket radar smart coach and will try to get my hands on that to compare. Will report back when I have more info.
