We are discussing nets for clubbies here! Your name dropping of "Chanderpaul" is noted. Setting a machine at "95mph" may work for Chanderpaul but will not benefits clubbies.

Be a good laugh seeing our openers trying to play 95mph outside off stump though  :D

Have you never done that?
"I'm going to put it on 95. See if you can hit it!"

Added comedy value if you turn it down to about 30 instead of maxing it out :D ;)

I've never seen the problem with facing bad bowling in the nets. You have to face bad bowling in the game, so why not practice against it? No point grooving yourself against 80mph back of a length stuff from the bowling machine if all you face in games is 50mph loopers than hold up in the breeze.

It amazes me how many batsmen are competent against good bowling, but as soon as someone slow or erratic comes along, they lose their gameplan and take a huge slog or chip one straight to cover. Do you ever practice against bad bowlers? you ask. "No", they reply.

There's actually quite a skill to being able to efficiently put away bad bowling without going berserk or taking on too much risk.

True, not trying to overhit loopy rubbish is a skill in and of itself. We have an older bloke who only bowls very occasionally but he's got some great batsmen out by bowling grenades at the stumps.

Does make you wonder how the pro's who come and play club cricket on a saturday when they dont have a game manage to whack my 45mph induckers. Can't imagine they practice that in the week  :D

2-3 hrs practice a week will help.

Batting against loopy bowling is indeed a skill.

Name dropping/ revealing source to give weight. However you want to take it. And surely they are pros for a reason might be worthwhile taking some hints from them.
And I never said clubbies should set to 95 and 5 bias swing. But set it to a challenging pace (whatever that may be).
The idea is he would not face anything that challenging out in the middle so it would all be easy.

For me you can over net with a bowling machine if you over groove 1 shot and it becomes your default so you get stuck like Shane Watson did on that front all those years back

People too often I see just crank speed up on half volleys to say they have faced that pace

Betting should be representative of what you face in middle, if you face good line length bowlers at good pace practice that. If you face medium bowlers who bowl a long hop then a worldie you need to practice reacting to that
