Comparing Ball Machines

All Silent Partner Ball Machines are lightweight, compact and easy to transport. These are truly portable machines that can be easily wheeled to nearby courts or loaded into the trunk of a car.

Our machines have the highest speeds on the market. Standard features in all models include topsin, backspin, drives and lobs and a random oscillator to get you moving around the court.

On top of the amazing features of a Silent Partner Ball Machine, we offer some great perks like free shipping and a 2 Year Warranty! We stand by our high quality products and are available to help with your questions.

Our two lines of machines are the Edge series and Scoop series. The Edge series is smaller and lighter than the Scoop series. While the Edge series features all of the necessary elements for a great ball machine, it does not offer the full range of features found in the Scoop series.

Edge Lite

Comparing Down
The LITE is our entry-level machine. There is no “down” model to compare it with in our line up.

Comparing Up
The LITE does not have a feed delay feature or a heavy-duty battery, two features on the next model up, the SPORT.

Edge Lite R

Comparing Down
The LITE-R is our entry-level machine. It has all the same features as the LITE but comes with a 2-button remote control.

Comparing Up
The LITE-R has the same two-button remote control as the STAR but does not have the heavy-duty battery of the SPORT or the STAR or delayed feed.

Edge Sport

Comparing Down
The SPORT has two features that the LITE does not have: A delayed start of ball feed to allow the player to get to the other side of the court without wasting balls, and a heavy duty battery.

Comparing Up
The STAR, the next model up, has a remote control.

Edge Star

Comparing Down
The SPORT, one model down, does not have a remote control. The SPORT is also not available with AC-DC power.

Comparing Up
The RIVAL, the next model up, has a 16-button remote control compared to the 2 button remote orf the STAR. The RIVAL also has a battery level indicator, digital displays for speed and spin, electronic elevation adjustment, three memories, a larger ball capacity (300 instead of 200) and a slightly larger body and rolling wheels. The RIVAL is not available in ACDC but is available in AC.

Scoop Rival

Comparing Down
Compared to the STAR, one model down, the RIVAL has a 16-button remote control whereas the STAR has a 2-button remote. The STAR also lacks the battery level indicator, digital displays for speed and spin, the three memories and the electronic elevation adjustment of the RIVAL. The STAR has a smaller ball capacity (200 instead of 300) and slightly smaller body and rolling wheels.

Comparing Up
The next model up is the QUEST which has a 20-button remote control compared to 16-buttons for the RIVAL. The QUEST also has adjustable angles of oscillation, adaptive all-court (vertical and horizontal) oscillation and 2-line delivery. The oscillator on the QUEST parks itself in the center when done.

Scoop Quest

Comparing Down
Compared to the RIVAL, one model down, the QUEST has 20 button remote control whereas the RIVAL has a 16-button remote. The QUEST also has adjustable angels of oscillation, adaptive all-court(vertical and horizontal) oscillation and 2-line delivery. The oscillator on the QUEST parks itself in the center when done.

Comparing Up
Although the QUEST offers just about everything one may wish for in a tennis ball machine, the Smart offers even more. Instead of the 20-button remote control of the Quest, the SMART has a 22-button remote control for the additional “Select-A-Drill” and “Match Playfeatures.

Scoop Smart

Comparing Down
Compared to the QUEST, one model down, which has a 20-button remote control, the SMART has a 22-button remote control. The SMART also has “Select-A-Drill” programming where you can enter sequences of ball locations. In addition to the three memories offered by the Quest, the SMART offers Match Play with three programs that simulates different types of match rallies.

Comparing Up
The SMART is Silent Partner’s top-of-the-line model. What sets the SMART apart is the adaptive All-Court oscillator, Select-A-Drill programming. and the Match Play simulation modes that the user can tailor to his or her skill level.
