Since 2016 Machines fitted with new electronics and Brushless motors

For 2016 the Professional Machine is fitted with Brushless Motors which replace the traditional Brushed Motors which have been used for the past 30 years. The advantages of the brushless motor are better efficiency and reliability, lighter weight, better build quality and longer working life. In practice that means the machine will run longer from a battery charge, is lighter to carry around and has better control response.

The BOLA can swing or spin the ball both ways and has push button controls to vary the amount of swing. Push the left button to move the ball to the left – away swing to a right-hander – or push the right button to move the ball to the right for inswing to a right-hander. It’s simple to use and quick to adjust. Whether you want to bowl a ball like a banana to emphasise a coaching point or just move the ball gently in or away, the BOLA will do it and keep doing it. The BOLA is also capable of high class spin bowling. By simply angling the delivery head of the machine and using the extreme settings on the left or right bias control buttons, you can bowl a ball which will turn prodigiously to simulate off-spin and leg-spin. Excellent for practising foot movement and batting technique against the turning ball. Also if Hi-Viz 3oz practice balls are used they will replicate the steeper bounce that quality bowlers can produce on harder wickets.

The BOLA is multi talented and very capable of recreating all the best aspects of any bowling attack. From the 95 mph bouncers and yorkers of the speed merchants to the subtle spin of the slow bowlers the BOLA can give you as many overs as you want to perfect all the shots in your game. If you just want the satisfaction of hitting off stump half volleys for six the BOLA allows you to select exactly the speed and length you want. But the BOLA microprocessor will also deliver subtle variations of speed, swing or spin when a greater challenge is required. Confidence or competition, the BOLA can give you both by the bucketful.

The BOLA is the ideal coaching tool. It provides any cricket coach with the capability to improve almost any batsman. Just having the facility to be able to watch a batsman playing the same ball time after time gives the coach the opportunity to visually analyse and fine tune technique. Coaches can work effectively to eliminate flaws and weaknesses against a ‘reference’ ball and deliver enough accurate bowling to effectively ‘groove’ shots. All players from the most tentative colt to the free hitting tail ender will have the opportunity to improve their batting without the frustrations of infinitely variable net bowling.

All BOLA Machines are fitted with a large ball joint for major alterations to line and length settings. The BOLA ‘Professional’ and ‘Club’ Machines complement this with ‘vernier adjusters’ for positive fine adjustment. These enable the operator to alter the line and length with a simple turn of a screw. When combined with the machines accurate one mph increments of speed it allows you to bowl a quicker or slower ball on the same spot. This saves valuable time in setting up and maximises time in those all too short indoor net sessions. Simple to use and extremely effective.
