The patented Advanced Skills Tee is unlike any other baseball swing trainer available. Designed to help experienced players perfect their batting skills and help beginning players to learn proper mechanics. The forward arm and outside swing barrier simultaneously eliminate both "dipping" and "casting" problems. And, the height adjustable, movable arm positions the ball anywhere across the strike zone to realistically represent inside and outside pitch locations. Use the Advanced Skills Batting Tee to build a compact swing, keep your "hands inside the ball" and develop a "quick" bat. Use it to increase bat speed and learn to "hit the ball where it's pitched".
Includes a two-year warranty!
Why The Forward Arm?
In fact, the question should be "Why not a forward arm?". You don't hit the ball over the center of the plate (as traditional batting tees suggest). You make contact in front of the plate. But there are two other equally important reasons to use a forward arm design:
1. The forward arm eliminates "dipping" or dropping the hands and trailing shoulder to lift the ball with a "looping" type swing. If you "dip" with the Advanced Skills Tee, you hit the back of the arm. It forces you to take the bat straight down to the ball, leveling the swing at the point of contact.
2. The forward arm also pivots and rotates to place the ball on the inside or outside of the strike zone. Then, the arm points in the direction to drive the ball based on pitch location (i.e. pull the inside pitch, go with the outside pitch to the opposite field . . . "Hit the ball where it's pitched").
The Outside Barrier
The outside barrier eliminates "casting". It keeps you from swinging "long" and helps you "keep your hands inside the ball". If the bat or arms are extended prematurely the bat head will slap the flexible upright barrier post. For years coaches have set a tee adjacent to a fence or screen to force hitters to compact their swing. The outside barrier does the same thing except it is a lot more effective. It rotates around the tee to accommodate LH or RH hitters and it moves along with the forward arm to help you keep the hands "tight" when you are working on inside and outside pitch locations. With the outside barrier you are forced to rotate the hips and torso and extend the hands only at the point of contact. It produces a "quick" bat and more power too.
The tubing for the Advanced Skills Tee is molded from polyurethane using an open casting process. What is polyurethane? It's a flexible material like rubber; however, polyurethane is much stronger and more durable than rubber, as much as 10 times more durable. Wheels for roller blades, industrial rollers and dimpled pitching machine balls are among the many items typically made with urethane. It's a great material for products that must withstand impact and stress yet remain flexible. Urethanes are expensive and the Advanced Skills Tee cost more than a rubber tee but, it will last 10 times longer too.
Custom Cup Brush/Ball Holder
The Advanced Skills Tee also uses a replaceable, custom cup brush as a ball holder. The brush, which works equally well for baseballs, softballs or poly-balls, is also more than 10 times more durable than rubber, tube-type ball holders. And, the brush gives you a clean "swish" through the ball with no shock to the bat or hands.
The Advanced Skills Tee can be quickly assembled or disassembled by hand for easy storage and transportation. It uses a hollow, canteen style base that is filled with sand or water and sealed with a rubber plug. When filled, the base provides weight for stability and when empty, the base is light and portable.

This tee is a durable and convenient training tool. It allows the coach to correct dropping of the hands, dipping the rear shoulder and casting during the swing. Most important to me is that it allows hitters to understand the importance of maintaining the correct plane of the bat to contact and through extension. The forward arm is very tough and allows for instant feedback if the swing is not done properly. The "brush" type ball holder maintains the ball on the tee is extreme wind conditions which did not occur to me until my other very expensive tees had the ball continually blowing off the tee and frustrating my hitters. The only problem is that this item is so durable I likely will not need more than one or two for quite some time. This is a quality tee, lightweight and easy to store and transport. The players love it when I break it out during BP because it allows them to correct various swing deficiencies without having to disengage from their hitting session to go to another station for individual swing issues. I will and have highly recommended this item to other coaches. It is not a "gadget" this is a legitimately valuable teaching aid. Well done with this product, well done indeed. Thank you!
Order was delivered in an acceptable amount of time and nicely packaged. Kids loved it.
Awesome Tee! Teaches both inside/compact swing and hands above the ball through the plate. I would highly recomend this product for your teams and kids!
I am having to re-purchase this particular tee, as this along with almost $5000 worth of softball and baseball equipment was stolen from these kids I coach and work with. In any case, I didn't hesitate buying another one because of the design, and features that reinforce every aspect of a good swing, regardless of the style your hitter uses. The forward arm gives instant feedback on upercutting, and the barrier arms are great for bat casters, and they also combine for attacking the ball at the correct angle. My new and young hitters have smashed the hard plastic with their alluminum bats, and the bats are never hurt or damaged. One of the best features is the brush top tee. How many times do hitters hit the ball along with the tee and knock it over, or repeated hits destroy the part that holds the ball? With the brush top you can get under the ball to practice sac flys, or hitting line drives, getting all parts of the ball depending on what you are working on. Very realistic hitting. You will not regret buying this tee.
Really helps keeping swing small. My son is getting better contact and is starting to get quicker swing by forcing him to not extend his arms before follow through
Excellent product that emphasizes the most important elements of the hitting process such as being short to the ball and staying inside the ball. Service on shipping was quick and efficient, assembly of the device easy and I find the product superior to previous similar devices. I think that this is an outstanding hitting tool.
The tee was shipped quickly. It was easy to assemble and has really helped improve my son's swing!
My husband says it's the best tee and is really helping our son with his hitting.
Definitely better than your run of the mill bendy tee. I like the options of the swing arm to work on hitting to all areas of the field
The tee is awesome!!!! My son and I love it.
Best Tee on the market. I tried the other two most popular and love the versatility of this one. I especially like the plane to the ball,the tee prevents you from dipping your back shoulder. My son loves it.
