The new 2-line oscillating option (+$300) automatically shoots to two preset court positions in addition to having the random oscillation feature of the basic oscillating model. This feature allows you to practice alternating forehand and backhand shots, or allows two players to practice together.

- Electronic elevation (+$100): Control ball trajectory with a simple electronic switch instead of the standard manual knob. Works with oscillating machines only.

With all the options available, it can be hard to decide which Tutor setup is right for you. Here is our suggested setup:
- Battery-powered - the battery model gives you the flexibility to use the Tutor even when you're not within reach of an outlet.
- External AC power supply - when paired with the battery-powered model, this gives you ultimate flexibility. You'll never have to worry about battery life when within reach of an outlet.
- Oscillating or 2-line oscillating - the oscillation feature is worth the extra money and most of the Tutors we sell are oscillating. With this features, the machine becomes a much more interesting training tool so you don't have to take shots to the exact same place every time. The new 2-line option is a huge improvement for those who want to switch between forehand and backhand while training or for those who want to use the machine to practice as doubles.
- Electronic elevation - we think it's worth the $100 to be able to control trajectory with a switch rather than the manual knob.
- Wireless remote - while this remote is a bit spendy, it adds a huge amount of convenience to using the Tutor — especially if you plan to use it alone. You're able to turn the ball feed and the oscillation feature on and off without having to run over to the machine.

I have been using the pickleball tutor for several weeks and just love it. The variety of ball speed and timing make for many great training scenarios. I can feel the improvement in my game after every session. The only improvement I can think of is that the hopper could be a little bigger. The people at Pickleball Experts have been great to work with. I should have sprung for the electronic elevation option, it would be well worth it.
So far the pickleball tutor has met all of our expectations. The machine seems to work very well and we are optimistic it will last a long time with proper maintenance. Pickleball experts were very accommodating for me as a buyer and I will buy products from them in the future. Shipping was also surprisingly quick. Thank you pickleball experts
I love my Tudor! Worked great right out of the box.
Haven't been able to give the Tutor much of a workout yet; weather has been too cold. However, the one time I did use it, some of the balls 'pooped' low in front of machine-not consistent. I believe that giving it a better chance with more time and it (hopefully) will be 4.0. Check back with me later. Barry
