>>> Mr Mankin,

That is a totally unfair criticism of Nyman. He did not even mention the word torque in the quote from Grand Slam Man. He did NOT say that he 'claims that his swing supplied sufficient torque at contact to snap off two wood bats at the handle.' The word torque was not mentioned.<<<


“The word torque was not mentioned,” but surely you are not denying that Nyman has repeatedly claimed that torque (forces applied at the handle from opposing directions) is not a factor in the swing. For obvious reasons, he would not use the word “torque.” However, there is no force he could apply, other than torque (top-hand driving forward – bottom-hand pulling rearward), that could snap the handle after the bat made contact with the bag.
