BATA - Polyurethane Friction Plate
On all of our single wheel machines, you have to incorporate a friction plate. One rotating wheel pinches a ball between the wheel itself and that friction plate, while most other companies manufacture that friction plate out of plastic material, we use a polyurethane material. It's a bit more expensive, but the polyurethane will last a long time and it provides a better grip on the ball. If you're looking at throwing a ball with a single wheel machine, our friction plates made out of polyurethane grab the ball better allow the machine to impart more spin so you can produce a better breaking pitch.
