The World's Most Advanced Batting Tee.
..Used by over 3000 high schools and colleges!..
The Advanced Skills Tee(patented)
is unlike any other swing trainer available. Designed to help experienced players perfect their bat skills and begining players
to learn proper mechanics, a forward arm and outside swing barrier simultaneously eliminate both "dipping" and "casting".
And, the height adjustable (24"-40"), movable arm positions the ball anywhere across the strike zone to realistically represent
inside and outside pitch locations. Use the AST to build a compact swing, keep the "hands inside the ball" and develop a "quick"
bat. Use it to increase bat speed and learn to "hit the ball where it's pitched".
Our team trains daily on the Muhl Tech Advanced Skills Tee. The forward arm and outside
barrier helps our players create a proper swing plane and stay short to the ball. These tees are extremely durable and the
brush cup ball holder is a great idea, they have held up for years. I would recommend them to any baseball program.

"We bought 3 AST's last year after running across them at an opponent's field. Immediately
upon seeing the tee, I noticed the bad habits that could be corrected with the simple design it employs. The AST has become
an important teaching tool for Lafayette High Baseball. One pleasant suprise has been the durability of the AST. My satisfaction
prompted me to buy 3 more for the upcoming year.

In fact, the question should be "Why not a forward a arm?". You don't hit the ball over
the center of the plate (as traditional batting tees suggest). You make contact in front of the plate. But there are two other
equally important reasons to use a forward arm design:
1. The forward arm eliminates "dipping" or dropping the
hands and trailing shoulder to lift the ball with a "looping" type swing. If you "dip" with the AST, you hit the back of the
arm. It forces you to take the bat straight down to the ball, leveling the swing at the point of contact.
2. The forward arm also pivots and rotates to place the ball on the inside or outside
of the strike zone. Then, the arm points in the direction to drive the ball based on pitch location (i.e. pull the inside
pitch, go with the outside pitch to the opposite field . . . "Hit the ball where it's pitched").
The outside barrier eliminates "casting". It keeps you form swinging "long" and helps you
"keep the hands inside the ball". If the bat or arms are extended prematurely the bat head will slap the flexible upright
barrier post. For years coaches have set a tee adjacent to a fence or screen to force hitters to compact their swing. The
outside barrier does the same thing except it is a lot more effective. It rotates around the tee to accommodate LH or RH hitters
and it moves along with the forward arm to help you keep the hands "tight" when you are working on inside and outside pitch
locations. With the outside barrier you are forced to rotate the hips and torso and extend the hands only at the point of
contact. It produces a "quick" bat and more power too.
. The outside barrier can also be placed to the rear of the AST. This will further eliminate
a level swing plane and force a shorter more direct swing path to the ball. This will also teach hitters to get more backspin
on the ball.
You can even add an outside barrier to make the Advanced Skills Tee the most complete batting
tee on the market. Simply slide on an extra barrier to develop the quickest, most powerful and compact swing possible. Eliminate
casting and dropping the hands all in one workout!

The tubing for the AST is molded from polyurethane using a open casting process. What is
polyurethane? It's a flexible material like rubber, however, polyurethane is much stronger and more durable than rubber, as
much as 10 times more durable. Wheels for roller blades, industrial rollers and dimpled pitching machine balls are among the
many items typically made with urethane. It's a great material for products that must withstand impact and stress yet remain
flexible. Urethanes are expensive and the AST cost more than a rubber tee but, it will last 10 times longer too. It even comes
with a two-year warranty.
Custom Cup Brush/Ball Holder. The AST also uses a replaceable, custom cup brush
as a ball holder. The brush, which works equally well for baseballs, softballs or poly-balls, is also more than 10 times more
durable than rubber, tube-type ball holders. And, the brush gives you a clean "swish" through the ball with no shock to the
bat or hands.
