The SKLZ Pro tee is superior to tees with a similar design because it has an 8lb. base that provides stability without the ned for additional weight. The weighted base provides rock solid footing during drills and is attached to the shaft with a snap-locking mechanism for quick, easy assembly. The dual wrapped tee top is capable of handling everything the batter can dish out and the flexible design allows the batter to have a game-like feel on each hit. Baseball and softball players can maximize their training with this exceptionally portable, durable and adjustable tee. Appropriate for all levels of play - use with SKLZ pop-up catch nets shown below.
