Re: Re: Handle torque

Posted by: SteveT () on Tue Jan 4 22:06:58 2000

OK, I think I understand what you're saying, but...

I'm not clear on how a linear hand-path is dominated by torque on the handle, yet we want to maximize torque while employing an angular path. I must be missing something.

What would the main avenue for transfer of energy be in the angular hand-path? The reason I'm wondering about this so much is I know a lot of hitters who can swing their regular bats at considerable velocity with one hand. So it was pretty clear to me that torque could not be more than say, 25% (at least in those hitters.) I'm sure others would show a bigger difference-
