>>> "Extension of the handpath is the main cause of "disconnection"."

This isn't true, it's not just extension that is the problem with being connected. Initiation is just as important with being connected to the rotational momentum.

I would say you will see just as many problems at initiation, as you would see from extension problems.<<<

Hi Shawn

I stated in my post, “When the batter’s mechanics produce an angular displacement of the hand-path (CHP), the body’s rotational momentum is transferred into bat-head acceleration (the pendulum effect). Mechanics that produce a straighter hand-path result in a "disconnection" of the bat-head from the body’s rotational momentum.”

With a straight extension of the hands, how much pendulum, whip or flailing of the bat-head would you say occurs?
