>>> Good answer.

But this is not what you say at:

>>> This "pulling back" of the bottom hand as the top hand is being "driven forward", generates a tremendous amount of TORQUE on the bat. <<<

And not what you show in the pictures at:

Hi Ray

This discussion comes at an opportune time for Batspeed.com. Wednesday we will be filming an instructional video/DVD to accompany our new rotational training aid “The PathFinder.” It is an improved version of the tool I used in ‘Final Arc II” to demonstrate how the pendulum effect of a CHP generates bat speed while a straight extension of the hands does not.

In the DVD, one of the topics I will cover is how torque is added to the swing to generate even greater bat speed. We will show that BHT can be added to the pendulum effect without altering the most optimum CHP – driving the top-hand forward straightens the hand-path. The principle of applying BHT that I will demonstrate is similar to the “Oarlock model” we are discussing.

I find no discrepancies in what I stated and the principles contained in http://www.batspeed.com/research08.html & http://www.batspeed.com/research10.html. Therefore, it would be helpful Ray if you would point them out.
