A great tool not only the motion but also to warm up the muscles of the arms, shoulders and back and act as a mechanism to for timing. It also stretches and works the core and can be used for learning the modern top spin forehand as well as the one and 2 handed backhands. It is a MUST gear in your bag for practice anywhere!

This is the best 20 dollars I have spent on a tennis gizmo, my serves are ripping since I started training with SwingRocket, it really helped increase my length of swing, by being able to have more racquet drop and range of motion - its all about accelerating to the stick to the ball, and this really helps to get the feel , and muscle training...
