I have only seen this type after it has worn out, so I decided to build one where the only part that can wear out is the rubber band.

My daughter is taking tennis lessons and the parents are supposed to retrieve the balls. The instructor has a metal tennis ball pick up hopper which I found too heavy after carrying it around using using one arm. I also have a bad back and being on the court for over an hour and in the heat it was draining me. I ordered the balltube because I figured it would be easier to carry around on the court and be more light weight. It is easier to retrieve tennis balls than the metal hopper but I wish I ordered one that could hold a little more balls. I have to go clear across to where the instructor is to dump the balls in his cart more often now but there is less strain on my back.

I was disappointed that it didn’t look close to new even though …

The product does what it claims but it came dented and slightly cracked. I was disappointed that it didn’t look close to new even though we bought a new product. Maybe it got damaged in shipping but I don’t know. Since it was still usable and we wanted to use it the day we got it, I didn’t bother returning it.

i had used a similar in the past and i wanted to get the same one,,,,but this one is not as easy to use-pretty stiff and the rubber opening on both ends are not perfectly round ,s o you need to sqeeze it with your hane to fiz the shape, so it can actually work,,,,

Tennis Ball Retriever is great!

The “gamma ball hopper ball tube” is a funny name for this item, but despite that, it really works well. If you play tennis or squash it really helps to have this tool to quickly pick up your tennis balls without having to bend over and strain your back. It has a hook that lets you attach it easily to a chain link fence and a strap to carry it on your shoulder.

Durable

At our local off-leash, dog owners bring tennis balls and there are dozens of them strewn around at any one time. I earlier purchased a Wilson 75 Tennis Ball Pick Up Hopper for use in retrieving the balls. It worked fine but was a little bulky for my use, while the Gamma Ballhopper is more manageable. I’ve used it almost daily for nearly six months to pick up dirty gravel encrusted balls, which I then brush off and toss for our dog. Certainly this isn’t what it was designed for and I don’t do any maintenance, but despite the abuse it’s still functioning well. The end cap shows scratches and will wear out eventually, but my experience speaks to its durability, which appears to be impressive.

The elastic for holding in the balls looks like it’s not going to last long

I haven’t used this much. It’s easier to use the basket to pick up the ball. With the tube you have to aim. with the basket you just bunch the balls together and press down. I have a bunch of red balls which is too big for this tube. Orange balls are ok. The elastic for holding in the balls looks like it’s not going to last long.

It works but it has a flaw

 on January 2, 2013
By K. Wilcox
The flaw with the Gamma Ballhopper lies not in it’s ability to pick up balls — it does that fine. The fault lies in the strap and the connecting points for the strap. The rubber on the connecting loops at the top and bottom of the tube is thin and weak. Mine broke off after two weeks. There is now nowhere to attach the strap. I don’t need the strap anyway, but it’s a bit annoying. Harder plastic would be better.

Great product!

We ordered 2 of these tubes at the beginning of the summer – we’ve been using them several times per week and they work great! They’ve held up just fine and so far we’ve had no problems!

Inexpensive but cheap

These tubes are easy to use and effective, ahemm, but, don’t count on them to last forever. The shoulder strap will fall off and with a significant amount of use, the bottom ring will will no longer keep the balls from falling out. For light or occasional use, these are excellent.
