The Balance Bat (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3Wj7k9dEWk&feature=youtu.be) is a game ready, Knob Weighted training bat that increases hand & bat speed, time to impact, and swing tightness. In addition, the Balance Bat improves top hand roll over, bottom hand drive, swing path, and extension, while reducing bat drag, bat casting, and wrist flips.
The Overloaded Softball Balance Bat weights 30% more then the normal game bat. The addition of 30% of weight allows the hitter to use the Balance Bat as a ‘Strength’ training bat. Although, the Overloaded Balance Bat weighs more the swing weight of the bat is closer to 26 oz due to the change in Center of Mass and Moment of Inertia.
What makes the Balance Bat unique is that the Balance Bat moves the center of gravity towards the pivot point of the bat. This change promotes a lighter “feel” for the hitter, increases overall swing speed, and reduces barrel sag due to decreased rotational inertia. The bat still has the mass of the barrel, but because the center of gravity has been moved towards the pivot point, this allows the hitter to increase overall swing speed. Additional benefits include:
- Keeping the Hands Inside the Pitched Ball
- Progressive Acceleration with Hands
- Controlled Air Flow
- Late Wrist Drive
- Allows back elbow to drop into proper Launch Position
- Hands stay short through swing
- Increasing Space between the Hands and Hips
- Establishing a Swing Pivot
- Increasing Hand and Forearm Strength
