Batting screens
What is the latest/greatest batting screen that you guys are buying for your teams? I'm looking for a lightweight one that hopefully folds up into a manageable space. Thanks.

The guys here make their own. They are definitely not portable.

A lot of us use Pitch Safe screens. Fold up into a nice small unit! Research on the internet. Look at Woodlawn Hitting Club and Florida half century for various videos as well as the website.

The pitch safe is very good although expensive. I have a lightweight economical alternative.

My team uses this one for bp during tournaments, at a fraction of the cost for a pitch safe. https://www.amazon.com/PowerNet-I-Screen-Protection-Protector-Grounders/dp/B016YZGURG/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1544201716&sr=8-4&keywords=pitching+screens

I have been using the Juggs Snap-tite slowpitch screen for 12 years now. This thing is completely portable and bomb proof. A little heavy for for long trips but nothing can beat it for bp around your home town.
The pitch safe is a nice screen but will probably only last you a year or two. The fiberglass poles break with hard shots.
I also have a Power Net but it's now only used for the little grand kids. It's very light and portable, but flexes quit a bit when hit hard. Pitchers get hit in the back of the head (lightly) when they pitch standing too close to the screen.
Just my experiences. Hope this helps.

I could not find a pith safe on amazon, this is the only product I could find for that price. https://www.amazon.com/PowerNet-Practice-I-Screen-Weighted-Training/dp/B073X2TFGQ/ref=sr_1_25?ie=UTF8&qid=1544631175&sr=8-25&keywords=Softball+Pitching+Screens

Our league bought a Pitch Safe 4 years ago and use it in our Masters Division , ages 68 - 86. I bought one for our tournament team 3 years ago. It weighs about 20 lbs and sets up in less then a minute. Very durable. Folds up and stores in a metal box about 6” X 6” X 24”. Can’t remember where we bought them but we paid about $175. Well worth the expense.

The Chicago Gray Sox use the Pitch safe. We are in Year 5. Very compact and I bring it to all the tournaments. 2 guys can set it up or take it down in under 30 seconds. Everyone on the team kicked in $20. Excellent choice.
