Beacon Instant Eye Retractable Hitter’s Backdrop
We engineered this retractable batter’s eye to work like nature. When wind whistles through a tree it changes shape slightly and moves around some to reduce its wind load. That’s exactly what inspired the Instant Eye. A central support with a “wing” supported by flexible battens allows for the subtle, stable movement that it needs to reduce wind load.
The result is a cost-effective retractable system that players love and raises or lowers easily from the ground. Gone are the big expense and constant worries of huge permanent structures that struggle with excessive wind gusts. Standard installations are 3, 4 or 5 units wide.
