SEE HOW THE GUN OFFERS MORE!

Reason #1

THE GUN OFFERS 3 TIMES MORE
SPOTS TO SHOOT FROM

Spot Selection

The Gun will throw to 17 spots around the perimeter compared to just 9 spots with the Dr. Dish CT.

Distance

The Dr. Dish has only 5 Distance settings. If you compare a 6’4″ player and a 5’6″ player both wanting to shoot FT jumpers, the 6’4″ player may catch the pass at his chest while the 5’6″ player catches the same pass over his head.

With The Gun there are 20 plus distance settings per spot. The ability to make the slightest changes in the passing distance allows players of any height to catch the ball right in their shooting pocket, every time, at any spot. The flexibility of the Distance and Pass Placement is just another reason why Most Coaches Count on The Gun.

Reason #2

Clear Net vs. Black Net

We tried a Black Net 20 yrs. ago and 85% of Coaches and Players preferred the Clear Net. One of the main reasons Most Top Coaches choose The Gun is they want their players practicing game like shots. For example, some teach focusing on the eyelet on the front of the rim, and the Black Net makes it very difficult to see. This is only possible on the Gun!

Counting Made Shots

Hearing a swish is a Reward for a Perfect Shot and Motivation for the player. Players and Coaches love the fact that Gun’s counter never touches the ball. The Dr. Dish counter will never let you hear a swish. The steel cage under rim will just make a “Clank” noise.

The Gun – Clear Net

Dr. Dish – Black Net

The Eye Chart is used as reference of clarity.
Reason #3

Motor Comparison

5 Times Bigger & 3 Times More Life

Our Motor is nearly 5 Times bigger and has 3 Times the life expectancy.
The Gun uses high-quality, heavy duty componets that will last you 15 – 20 years.

Reason #4

Net Height Adjustment

Our net is over 5 Times more adjustable to encourage optimal shooting arc and not allow “Flat” shots.
The higher net will also collect more misses so they are not bouncing all over the gym.

Reason #5

Compare Throw Distance

The Gun – has 4 Times as many Throw Distances per spot. This allow for players of all sizes and skill levels to make the slightest adjustment and be able to catch the ball right in their shooting pocket every time.

Dr. Dish – has only 5 Set Throw Distances per spot. With no ability to adjust, players will be forced to catch passes overhead or down by the knees.

Reason #6

Noise

The Gun is two times quieter Than Dr. Dish

A more quiet machine will make it so you can better communicate with, and coach your players.
For the home user, a quieter machine creates a more comfortable, peaceful environment
for you and your neighbors.
