The Zooka ZS740
has greater speed and range for
older players and can throw change-ups.
The ZS720 is slightly
smaller and comes standard with a shorter tripod.
We recommend short
tripods for younger players. The lower pitch release height is similar
to an under-handed pitch and results in a flatter ball trajectory which
is easier for young players to hit.
A full panning tall tripod may be
selected at the time of purchase if desired. It may also be ordered
later as the kids grow up.
The ZS720 can throw real baseballs, pitching machine balls, tennis balls and most safety balls at speeds up to 55 mph from distances as far as 65 feet.
