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.
FAQ: Can Amicus switch spin in the same practice pattern?
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 does.
