Re: Clicker stick

>>>I would like your opinion on two training devices.
1) Clicker Stick= Using top hand torque (torque) where would the "click" happen.

a) Back toward the catcher (your analogy to Piazza swinging with a weighted sleeve on his bat, the sleeve would fly off toward the catcher).

b) toward the plate

c) toward the pitcher, out front.
2) Pro-cut= In your opinion does having weight attached to the knob improved ones ability to transfer the forces created in the swing.

Saying it a different way, Would it give the hitter a chance to feel the mechanics or forces applied.

I'm more interested in what effects these devices have on mechanics, what mechanics they may (or may not) help develop.

The Pro-Cut is described as a training product with mechanical learning advantages. <<<

Hi Shawn

It's good to hear from you again. My answer to question # 1 is (A). With most of them I tried, the "click" occurred just after full initiation (bat toward catchers left shoulder). One must have been set fairly light, it clicked during pre-launch torque.

I have never worked with the Pro-Cut product. I still do not understand it's use.
