What’s the difference between the home base model and travel model?
The Travel Model has detachable posts for removal of the Catch Net along with telescoping side braces that enable you to make it smaller for travel or storage. Another feature is that the Hitting Arm comes apart with the push of a button to cut the length in half making it easy to store inside the Travel Model. Go to our video page and watch video “Comparing Models”. www.edgeprovolleyball.com/videos/
Will the Home Model fit into the back of a Minivan or SUV?
Yes but it will take up most of your space and the middle seat may need to be removed. Go to our video page and watch video “Comparing Models”.
Is the Ball Height adjustable? How high can I hit?
Yes the ball height is adjustable and can accommodate an 8-year-old up to college age. The ball height range is: 9 feet 3 inches at its high point, 6 feet 3 inches when you remove the pin and allow the Hitting Arm Adjustment Post to sink to its lowest point. (micro adjustments are made with the Claw Keeper and can go as low as 5 feet 9 inches).
I jump pretty high and need something higher can you accommodate my ability?
Yes, we will be adding a college addition that will enable you to hit up to10 feet. Inquire about custom heights. firstname.lastname@example.org
My School wants to purchase The Edge. Do you accept Purchase Orders?
SCHOOL OPTION… Yes, we accept purchase orders and we have a “School Option” that you can choose in Checkout. Choosing the School Option
will give you all the info needed for your front office to create a P O.
How heavy is it? Can one person move it?
The Edge Home and Travel models both weigh 57 lbs. Wheels on the back of the Target Stand make it easy for an athlete to move on their own.
How many people do you need to set it up for daily use?
The Edge is user friendly. Not needing assistance to set The Edge up makes it more likely they will use it. One person can set it up and be hitting in minutes.
What is it made of?
The Edge is made from a Furniture grade PVC. That means it’s flexible, durable and UV protected.
How strong is it?
The PVC piping has 1/8 inch walls making it strong enough for us to drive a Ford Explorer over it with no structural damage, only scratches. (See Video on our Video page)
Is the Volleyball Net regulation?
Yes, the Volleyball Net has three settings. The first is Beginner. That lowers the net to give the player the look and feel of hitting from behind the 10-foot line. It’s perfect for teaching a beginner how to hit the ball. The second setting down from the top is Women’s regulation height of 7’ 4”. The third setting is Men’s regulation height of 8’.
How long does it take to load the ball?
In the amount of time it takes you to read this sentence you could reloaded the ball and be ready to hit again. Pull the cord, place the ball between the Foam Claw Supports and tug down on the cord again and release, this time to build a little momentum for the hitting arm to snap back into place in the Claw Keeper, take four steps back and you’re ready to hit. It’s the perfect amount of time for you to catch your breath.
How is The Edge used as a SETTER STAND?
You can use The Edge as a SETTER STAND by removing the Hitting Arm Stand. With the push of two buttons the Setters Stand can be used alone as a target for passing or setting.
What is the Assist?
The Assist is an add on to The Edge that enables you to use the Hitting Arm Independently from the Target Stand. With the push of two buttons you turn your Hitting Arm into an Independent and can now use it on the Sand Court, in the Gym or anywhere at home with ease. Many Coaches are incorporating the Independent into team drills.
Why is there more cost for a Left and Right machine?
We add linkage to both sides of The Edge so you can connect the Hitting Arm Stand to the left side for a left hand hitter. By doing this it moves the player further away from the Hitting Arm, while hitting, making it less likely they will trip on the supports that hold up the Hitting Arm Stand.
I ordered a Left and Right hand Edge. How do I change it over for a left handed player?
Start by lowering the Hitting Arm Extension Post to make it easier to move. Next push the two thumbs buttons found on the linkage connecting the Hitting Arm to the Target Stand and on the Hitting stand so you can telescope the gray tube back into the Hitting stand. Repeat this on the bottom. Now you’re ready to move the Hitting stand to the left side. Reconnect the gray tube to the linkage by pressing the thumb buttons and inserting the tube until the button clicks into place. Now turn your attention to the Hitting Arm Pivot mount. This is where your Hitting Arm attaches to your Extension Post. Here you will find two button holes, one saying Left and the other Right. Push the thumb button and rotate the Hitting Arm so the Claw is parallel to the Target Stand. At this point the thumb button should click into the Left button hole. Make Sure the Hitting Arm Stand is on a diagonal and the hitter has a clear path to the ball.
