August 10, 2017 - Simply Fill It and Drill It

We've said for years that sometimes the most simple tools are the best. And we've also been lauding the products from Unique Sports and their Tourna line for their quality and simplicity. The Fill-N-Drill in another example of a terrific invention that doesn't over-complicate. 

It is a tennis ball on an elastic string, fixed to an anchor, or, base. Sounds pretty basic. But then you dive into the details. The anchor is built with a handle for easy carrying. The string is stored by wrapping about the base and the ball locks into a pocket. It's compact, it's portable. 

How does the anchor keep from moving? Simple. Just fill it with water and you've got the weight required to allow beginning and intermediate players to hit shot after shot virtually anywhere, with no need for a net or a partner. When you're done you can drain the water on some nearby plants, wrap it and snap it and the device will be out of your way and ready for the next use. 

Did we mention that you get all this for the price of a few cans of balls? That's what Unique does. They figure out a better way, they make it, and then they price it so everyone can enjoy their great ideas. When it comes to training tools, there's nothing better than value and utility. Except maybe that killer backhand.
