Snicker isn't orange and the Auto Dropper has been designed after Bill had players coming round who played top cricket and just had throw downs rather than bowling machine practive.

So basically he made a machine which allows the ball to come to you at a slower speed than a Bowling Machine in order to groove and practise the shots. Repetition, as the muscle needs many repetitions to get it in it's memory.

That's the shape of it, now the prototype had an adapted mitt on it as it protected the hand. If they go into full production they'll be something specially made, but that's the shape of it. The material it's made from is light and the ball travels off it awfully quickly.

The Half & Half coaching bat you see on the website front page is one side a Skyer, the other side is a regular wood fielding bat which can be used for snicks and slip practice.

Not sure on prices Nozza as they're not even being produced at the mo; the main focus is on the Skyer . If you're willing to give Bill a call you may be able to get a prototype shipped over.

Last time I saw James and Bill it was going rather well, a number of orders and lots of professional sides have them now. I think they're pleased with it all.
