The experts say the more your swing can simulate a wood-bat swing rather than an alumimun-bat swing, the better you are off, at least in the long run. That being the case, how would a device that has more weight distributed at the bottom be helpful? A wood bat feels topheavy, making it harder to control. It would seem to me that a device that distributes more weight near the end would have more training value.
