    Comments about Lobster Sports Lobster Elite 3 with Premium Fast Charger & Remote:

    I have been using this for a few days now and must admit that I was suprised by actual performance of the machine. On first try, I had a very short interval for the feed (about 5 seconds), I quickly realized that this was way too fast... After a few adjustments, I found a good rythm with the machine settings were I feed about every 10-12 seconds and set the horizontal and vertical oscillation to drill forehands and backhands as needed. The machine is very consistent in the depth and width of shots and the spin feature combined with the ball velocity recreates very accurate match conditions. The combo price was a bargain for all three extra items included, except that I don't find much value to the wireless remote on this particular model of Elite 3 as you can only turn the feed and sweep features on/off, making any other adjustments still require you walk around to the other side. Nonetheless, I was hesitant at first to get this model as I was considering the Elite Grand IV, however I have to admit that this was an excellent choice and will keep me on my toes for a very long time. Very satisfied with the purchase.

    Service and delivery comments:

    HolaBird was prompt in delivery and the customer service team was very helpful in answering all my questions before the purchase.

    • Q:

      Our club has a Lobster elite 3. While replacing the battery the black wire running from the charger port came loose from the board. I am looking for a schematic or someone that can tell me where the wire connects.
      It is still connected to the charger port but I don't know where to attach it back to the mother board.
      Note: this is the wire that allows the battery to be charged when not in use.

        The Lobster Elite 3 battery can be removed from the base, just like a car battery, but you would need an external battery pack adapter. The Battery is a 12 volt 18 amp led acid sealed battery. Width: 3.00 Length: 7.20 Height: 6.60.
