If you're wanting to become a better cricketer ahead of next season, the winter months are the perfect time to work on your craft. All those things you wanted to improve on during the last campaign, now is the time! 
For batters, you might want to improve your stroke technique. Bowlers, meanwhile, could opt to focus on their release. On the other hand, wicket keepers will potentially go away and work on their hand speed behind the stumps. It is also imperative that all players are actively looking to become a better fielder - as we all know, catches win matches.  
There are thousands of cricket training aids on the market, however, The R66T Academy Reactor is unlike most other bowling machines! Why? Well, let's find out.  
Our miniature, multi-use bowling machine has proved to be an effective product for players of all ages and abilities, ranging from first-time players to England batter Joe Root. So, here's everything you need to know about the Reactor... 
Multi-use bowling machine 
Much like The R66T Academy Ball Launcher, The R66T Academy Reactor is a multi-use bowling machine. The difference between the two machines, though, is that the Reactor is much smaller!  
The smaller balls ensure you remain focused while batting, and they are also great for players wanting to improve their fielding and catching skills. It is a lightweight, portable and enjoyable training aid designed to improve hand-eye coordination and correct stroke technique. 
Micro balls and collection tube 
The Reactor's foam micro balls allow batters to work on their visual processing, concentration and hand-eye coordination. These are essential skills if you want to take your batting to the next level! 
Our bowling machine also comes with 12 balls and a ball collection tube, making it easy to collect the balls after each respective training drill. Simply remove the tube from the machine, when the balls are scattered around on the floor, line the top of the tube over the ball and gently push the tube onto the ball to collect it. Repeat this process for the other balls - easy! 
Opportunity to progress 
As you progress with the Reactor, you could use The R66T Academy Technique Bat to increase the challenge and further develop your concentration and hand-eye coordination. 
Battery and mains power 
We understand how frustrating it is when your bowling machine runs out of battery when you’re out on the grass or working hard in the nets. The Reactor has good battery life and can also be used with mains power. 
Outdoor and indoor use 
The unpredictability of the weather - round the globe - means players are training and playing cricket indoor and outdoor throughout the year. Whether you’re wanting to practise inside during the winter, or outside in the sun during the summer, the R66T Academy Reactor is an ideal cricket bowling machine! 
Exceptional customer service 
Every cricketer appreciates a brand that listens to them and understands their needs. At The R66T Academy, we go above and beyond for our customers - ensuring they are satisfied with our products. 
Our Customer Service team actively responds to customer queries received through our website and on social media. If you’ve got an issue with a R66T Academy product, or are unsure how to use the machine to optimise your training, our team are there to support you.

"I bought this to help my 11 year old son as he loves cricket. I think it's a great product, probably need a larger house and garden though. I bought 3 products in total and all have been brilliant. Thoroughly recommend the products."
