Packaging weight: 25 lbs
FAQ: Are there any visual cues to indicate current spin?
Depending on which Amicus model you have there will be a combination of lights and labeled knob to set up patterns. All models can be programmed to do a mixture of spins and placements of pitches. Amicus Pro and Advance are the only models that can save programmed patterns.
FAQ: Which Amicus model is most realistic?
All models have the same realistic ball flight and bounce based on the concept of having multi shooting wheels. Amicus Pro however has an Automatic Frequency Control feature which changes time intervals based on the previously pitched ball.
All amicus models can switch spin in a practice pattern.
FAQ: Can Amicus throw the ball to bounce on each side of the table (to simulate a table tennis service)? And can it do it with backspin or sidespin?
Yes, it can simulate a serve with different types of spin and even no spin.
FAQ: Does the robot come with a ball recycling net (aka catch net)?
Yes, it does.

Reviews of Butterfly Amicus Advance (4)
Arrived in great shape. Has to be adjusted to feed the poly balls but feeds celluloid fine. Instructions could be better. Best way to get it set? Get a lot of balls, set up some barriers and let it throw shots while you experiment with arc and spin.
I'm a novice but splurged on this training machine based on extensive internet search for reviews. How can one not improve with steady, repeatable balls coming at you? I cannot comment on spin characteristics as compared to actual play, but it is obvious the machine can produce incredible spins in all planes. The design and construction seem solid and well thought out, though the programing takes a bit of head scratching - ultimately doable, but not intuitive. I'm very, very pleased overall.
