GM First Ball: A
ball that is harder than a tennis ball with a small protruding seam that
produces a realistic bounce and when the conditions are right the ball will
produce realistic lateral movement, the top speed of this ball has been
recorded at 65mph @ £3.00 each
Tennis Ball: The bounciest ball the stinger will fire that is ideal for practising the short-pitched delivery or simulating playing on a bouncy wicket @ £1.50 each.
New Stinger Ball: The newly sourced stinger ball is slightly larger than a tennis
ball and is dimpled, it is still a soft ball but fires at around 70 mph+ it is

These types of balls are the nearest comparison you will get to the hard balls that the top of the range bowling machines use but without the high cost of the machine and balls, as a cricketer myself I know it’s great to feel leather on willow but these balls still simulate very realistic batting conditions, helping with hand to eye coordination and concentration as well as the means to practice all batting stroke play.
Who will benefit from
using a StingerX?
Junior Cricketers: A great tool for the beginner to build up confidence
of practicing and learning new batting shots as well as refining
Adult Cricketers: Dependent of on the batsmen's skill level the stinger
can be placed at 22 yards or closer, and with the variation from the balls it
will keep any batsmen on their toes, or it can be set to practicing a
desired stoke that the batsmen may feel requires attention.
