I haven't used an Amicus or Newgy. There is an Amicus robot in my club but its frequently broken. I think they got a new unit to replace the older one. Anyway, while at the club I want to practice against other players, not robots so I never used it.Have you any comparsion to other Robots like Butterfly Amicus or Newgy Robopong? How easy is it to create drills? I m srsly considering buying one and would love some more feedback.
E: Is there a way to install a Net so you dont have to collect the Balls from the floor?
Before the TenniRobo, I owned a Prakttismate robot. That robot was a 2 wheel design. Like most robots it clamped on the end of the table. You could set spin, speed and oscillation to send balls left or right. Unfortunately due to that robot's design, it couldn't handle the 40+ ball size. Compared to the TenniRobo, it had much more limited functionality and was almost twice the price.
It took me a little time to figure out how to create and save a 3 shot sequence drill for my TenniRobo using the app. Sergey (the owner of TenniRobo) sent me a short video on how to do this. Unfortunately, I can't find that video. However, Sergey has responded to this thread. Maybe he can post a link to that video on this thread or you can PM him to send you that video directly so that you can get a sense about how to set up drills.
I like that TenniRobo can feed different balls in terms of spin, speed, and locations and make those adjustments pretty quickly to make drills fairly realistic although its not the same as playing against another person or multiball practice with a coach. I also like that you can place the robot at any location close or away from the table giving the ball a more realistic trajectory, such as practicing against chop coming from far from the table.
I had a concern about the lack of a net as well. I had suggested to Sergey to offer a net as an extra cost option. Since the TenniRobo can be placed on tripod and positioned anywhere near or far from the table, the net does become a challenge. But you can make a cheap net yourself by using PVC pipes to make a frame and tie a bed sheet on that frame to catch the balls. It won't be pretty but should be functional. Or, you could purchase a stand alone net similar to this (but its expensive): https://shop.butterflyonline.com/collection-net-2-ppcn2
If you don't get a net setup, you should get something to pick up balls from the floor quickly without a lot of bending, something like this: https://shop.butterflyonline.com/ball-amigo
No, I am not trying to push Butterfly items, I just found examples of both on same website to show as examples.
