There’s no longer a question of whether or not using a weighted bat increases bat speed. One of our loyal customers forwarded a study to us discussing that very topic. Here’s what science says about the best way to use weighted bats. A study was conducted a while back to determine the effect of weighted bats on bat speed. To …
Don’t Cheat with Chemicals – Get Strong with Our Bat
You will continue to hear stories of professional athletes who use chemicals to add muscle and stamina to their bodies. Why would someone risk destroying a great career by using illegal chemicals? The chemicals players cheat with increase their muscle mass by 150 percent. In the heat of the summer, they don’t go into prolonged hitting slumps because their strength (stamina) …

Thanks for the response, works great…. Price of this product, in my opinion, is unmeasurable. Been using this for years now, and wouldn’t try anything else. Everytime
I hit with it and people ask me what it is, I always give them the flyers you sent me.
real user, customer and player!
i saw this device on youtube and i couldnt wait to buy it. ive always had trouble finding people to practice due to my crazy schedule but i no longer have that issue. from the first day i tried it i loved it. great for working on your hand-eye cord. and timing. after about 400 hits the machine started malfunctioning (wouldnt hold the air timing down) so i called the the 800 number on the device. i spoke to a woman named pat and all i can say is GREAT customer service. i told her the problem and she shipped me timer, base, spring, and striker free of charge within 3 days. while waiting for the new parts i tinkered with it a little and found the problem. opposite of the timing mechanism theres a little valve that opens when air is pushed out and closes as it sets the timer. a piece of trash had gotten in there and was messing up the timing. once i removed that i was good to go. ive put another 400 hits and hasnt missed a beat. one thing i do recommend is keeping it well lubricated. after every batting session i put a little grease on the o ring located on the striker and i rub a little motor oil down the main shaft were the striker travels. one last thing, the base is a little light so when the striker launches the ball it slightly hops so you need to adjust it frequently.i fixed the problem by zip tying it down to and old baseball tee base. i posted a video on youtube (early morning bp pop toss) if you want to see how it performs. if you watch the videos you can see how my timing, contact, and power have increased as time has gone by
very nice easy to use
Love that I have it for life
Great weather here today, overcast and mild. Great day to try out different techniques while using my Pop toss.
I found out what works and what doesn't in bp with my pop toss. It's not perfect but it's really great!
Did 4-5 rounds with about 25 balls. Absolutely love it!
Bought it around 6 weeks ago.
Love that I have it for life 🙂
I use my PopToss about 200 times per week so it gets good use. I just came back from the Senior Softball 50 Major World Championships in Las Vegas this past weekend. My team won the championships and I was fortunate enough to win team MVP… without my PopToss this would not have been possible as I don’t have a batting practice partner that I can rely on all the time. I can rely on my PopToss though… I believe I finished with a .892 batting average and again would not have been possible without my PopToss.
Skeptical at first
I was skeptical at first, but I thought I’d let the kids decide. Awesome, just awesome! The kids love practicing with it and I saw an immediate improvement in the teams ability to hit line drives all over the field. Thanks.
Hours of entertainment
Required little to no instruction to use, and provided loads of hours of entertainment with friends. If you like playing catch even a little, this product is a must have!
It works great!
I gave this to my husband as a Christmas gift and he is just now getting to use it. He LOVES it. It works great!
What an awesome product, my son loves using this.
My son loves his new tee, I’m thinking of getting one for my Slowpitch team.
Pop Up Tee is Awesome!
I bought this tee from the actual website: [...] This batting tee is phenomenal. Talk about the best solo batting practice partner. I've had friends come out and throw me batting practice and there is always a fear behind everyone's mind about hitting up the middle on accident. I wish I had this tee years ago. Cal and Pat are the owners and the customer service they provide is probably one of the best! Emails are answered in a timely manner and the ship replacement parts when they say they will.
Great product. Better customer service.
I don't normally review things on Amazon but felt compelled to leave one based on my positive experience with this company. Note I am talking about 21st Century Batting Tees the company which makes the Pop Toss, not the distributor.
I have owned a Pop Toss for about a month and a half and I love it, it has helped my hitting immensely and it's really easy and fun to use. Unfortunately my dumb friend managed to break it during practice and the plastic top funnel became cracked and useless.
Now I found out via the Pop Toss website that they have a lifetime warranty for every Pop Toss they sell. I spoke on the phone with them and they asked me to e-mail pictures of the damage. Less than 24 hours later I got an e-mail back saying they would ship me replacement parts. They sent me TWO complete replacement funnels and fixing it could not have been easier.
I am HUGELY satisfied with the Pop Toss but I was moved to write this review based on my experience with the company. Highly recommend.
Great tool for hitters
This thing is awesome, such a great tool for hitters of all ages. And the customer service is amazing had a few questions/suggestions, and was responded to by a live person and was very awesomely taken care of, by far the best customer service experience I have ever had.
People are Impressed
Just wanted to say thanks again for your generosity and for all your hard work for the game! I'm in a number of softball discussion pages as well as some b/s/t ones, on Facebook, with people from all over the country/world. I just saw this evening, a guy posting about posting a green tee after seeing me use it on the videos, and talking about how much he loved it. It was cool to see him rave about it and hear other guys inquire about it or talk about how they've been thinking about getting one. The guy also stated how great of customer service you all provide. I hope you find all that encouraging. You've made a great product and people are impressed when they work with you, as I can confirm!
I also heard back from my old college coach recently, saying he loves the weighted bat and has been using it at the academy. We agreed to try and connect in either February or March to do some form of an interview for a video on his experience. I need to follow up with the UWM coach, especially as their season is about to enter games here - at least for an initial check in.
As for the 2-in-1 I've been swinging, the thing is a tank. Still going strong after thousands of hits. The long rod is still holding on since I put that layer of plumbers tape on it. And the swing is getting stronger!! Come on warm weather HAHA!
Pop toss batting machine is awesome! I use it for slow pitch softball to keep my swing in tune, and they even sell a weighted bat with 3 different weights what is a must-have. I recommend both!
Poptoss customer service is excellent. They respond quickly if you have questions or ...
I am a competitive senior softball player. My poptoss is 4 years old and has had thousands of reps. It has done everything I expected it to. Poptoss customer service is excellent. They respond quickly if you have questions or need new parts. Your poptoss tee will give you great and reliable service for a long time if you take care of it. The most important thing to remember is to always have some protection in front of the tee. Also the tee performs better and stays cleaner if you set it up in grass.
Thanks a lot! Love using the pop toss so much. It recently helped me win an MVP award at a high arc tournament. The hours of practice really paid off.
Very impressed. If it broke today I would buy another.
Sorry for never getting back to you. I absoloutley love the weighted bat. It has really helped with my power. As far as the tee goes it has been doing a great job of giving me swing practice. I have become a lot more consistent with my power. However I did let mud into my new pop toss and as a result the spring is shooting up immediatley. I realize now I should wash the softballs as best I can before using them. Would you be able to send the replacement parts again?
No worries, we are going to send you a replacement part to fix your PopToss. The lower chamber that contains both valves recently has upgraded valves. It will take you 2 minutes to swap everything out. As for the bat, we are going to send you a new bat... all free of charge. The grey connectors have been upgraded recently. You have a lifetime warranty on all PopToss parts. One note: please don't use the longest rod for live batting practice; only use it for work on the batting tee and warming up and strengthening. Again, no worries. Everything will ship before tomorrow morning. Enjoy.. we hope you enjoyed the bat before your mishap??
This is a great training aid for hitting a slow pitch softball. It really helps with practicing those ball placement swings.
Impressive Customer Service
Just wanted to say how impressed I was with your customer service! Got my replacement parts within a couple of days and have been back out to the fields to work on my swing, thank you all so much!
Greatest thing since sliced bread
Best thing I've EVER done for my game!
This is a fabulous, fabulous product and this company has the best, REPEAT, the BEST customer service on the planet. Buy thus product NOW and you'll be as excited as I am to own one! Thank you Pop Toss! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Fantastic product and customer service
Fantastic product and customer service. I've been using their poptoss for about 10 years. I have mine mounted on a 25 lb weight attached with a bungee cord in a tall recycling bin (to protect the machine). Very consistent and the newer one shoots the ball further. Do a few swings of live pitching before a game though.
Playing Softball at 70
Dear Pop Toss, I purchased your Pop Toss Green Tee probably 4 years ago and have used it extensively with only a minor issue or two, which you rectified, however when I went out to use it at the beginning of this season I could not control the timing. No matter what I set the adjustment for, it would either "fire" before I could even put the ball on the Pop Toss or wait 20 seconds to operate. I love this thing and have contemplated buying another but hope there is someway to get this one operational. It has not been hit by a ball or mistreated since I have had it. I had to resort to my batting tee for practice, and it helps, but there is nothing like the ball moving toward you to improve hand-eye coordination. I am 70 years old and have been blessed with good health which allows me to continue playing coed softball and the Pop Toss has been instrumental in my success as a hitter. Thank you for such a great product. Warmest regards,
We really, really, really appreciate your kind words. You are a great example of others who are members of our PopToss family. We honor your great faith in our product. However, your PopToss has been updated tremendously to the point you won't recognize it. PopToss now propels the 12 inch softball 20 to 25 feet pitching distance. There is an additional rubber Screw-in contact on the top-most point of the PopToss which allows you to cut down the tossing distance to 12 to 15 feet. You no longer have to swap out the springs. You simply swap out (unscrew) the black rubber Angular. We want to make a special arrangement for you. For a discount of $35 dollars as a loyal customer, we will invoice you for $104. for the latest and best PopToss NEW DESIGN Slow pitch softball pitching machine.....
We will invoice you through PayPal or we can call you and take your order over the phone.
