I have a 5yr old who I bought the “original” Tanner tee for this past baseball season. After having numerous other baseball dad’s who had recommended this tee to me and hearing of their experiences of using a Tanner tee for years and years with no issues I decided to try it out. I’ve had that tee for a couple of months and as a result of my experience with that tee I also recently ordered the “short” version for my 3yr old who will be playing 4yo tee ball next year. He’s kind of short and stocky at the moment so the original was a little too tall for him to practice with. After having used the original tee for the time we’ve had it here’s a few reasons why I decided to also purchase the short version:
1. Quality- Unsurpassed quality. My oldest son may only be 5yrs old and have only played baseball for 2 seasons so far but in that time I have gone through 3 other brands/types of tees. Most are made out of brittle plastic that starts to slowly chip away with hit after hit. After a while there is really no where left to place a baseball on top of without it falling off. With the Tanner tee after hundreds of times batting a ball off of the rolled top there is really not even a mark on it. Nothing. I even batted a few times myself and purposefully hit the roll trying to see if it would mark or tear – Nothing. I was beyond impressed.
2. Value – You can’t beat the value of the Tanner tee. As of now the original and the short version which I’ve ordered are $80 with free shipping. I paid almost $100 combined for the 3 tees I had used previously and have wound up throwing away because they were beaten to death and just would not work properly. Stop paying $30 or $40 for a tee that's going to break in a few months. I say pay $80 one time and be done with it. This tee is going to last a long time. And if at some point something happens to the top just buy a new rolled top section for $32 or whatever they are going for at the time. By the time you would need to buy a new Tanner top I bet you would’ve spent hundreds of dollars on other crappy tees.
3. Get the real deal – Get a Tanner. There are other imitation tees out there from other big name companies but get the Tanner. I’ve never used one of those other big name Tanner lookalikes personally but from what other coaches/dads have told me when I was looking to get a good tee they say those other tees may look the same but the quality/longevity of the tees do not compare to the Tanner’s.
4. American made – let’s face it practically nothing is made in America anymore. Everything is made in China or Mexico or some other foreign country. This is one example of a homegrown American company that sells American products. There’s that saying that “baseball is the National past time” – well why not support a company which is homegrown in this great country of ours the good ole’ USA. Chris on 11th Aug 2017
great and durable Unknown on 19th Jul 2017
Good tee! Solid, not like most box stores. This thing could handle swings from adults and it will last him as he grows taller. Unknown on 13th Jul 2017
We have owned the tee for about a month and it seems to be durable. Good so far. Unknown on 5th Jul 2017
Extremely durable! Love the easy adjustment method. I would recommend for any level of play: little league, high school, college, etc. Noah Medich on 19th Jun 2017
As far as tees go durability is paramount. This tees takes all you can give it and keep right on going. Just get a 10lb weight to keep it steady and hit away. May not want to use this tee for beginners due to the steel shaft. You wont hurt the tee but it will ruin a bat in a hurry. Stephen Smith on 4th Jun 2017
The Tanner Tees are the best training tool that I have ever purchased in 30 years of playing and coaching the game. They are durable and effective aids for helping players grow in the game. Trey Wingate on 27th Apr 2017
Best tee we've had. Durable, easy to transport and store. Carla Kleinwolterink on 19th Apr 2017
I have three Tanner Tees now. I've had the original now for years. A year or two ago Tanner redesigned the base to make a heavy tee with a longer footprint. It's excellent, and my favorite. Most recently I bought a short tee to work on low pitches. It's outstanding too. Tanner Tees make the competition look silly. Such a great line of tees. Mark Fern on 17th Apr 2017
