Swing XP bats have been scientifically proven by testing conducted at the American Sports Medicine Institute to produce better bat speed and swing mechanics than traditional weighted bat devices.
The Swing XP Power Series practice bats promote improved hitting mechanics and performance by helping batters keep their hands inside and down to maintain an ideal swing path to the ball.
View the galleries below to compare swing paths between a standard bat, a bat with a traditional weighted device, and a Swing XP bat.
Standard Bat With Traditional Weighted Device
Swing XP Bat
- "A significant difference did exist in regards to the knob distance traveled, such that the knob traveled farther with the control bat and the Swing XP bat than with the bat with the barrel weight."
- "Participants felt the Swing XP bat improved their hand and/or bat speed"
- When compared with barrel weighted devices on a traditional bat, "participants felt that the top heavy weight distribution of the barrel weighted bat threw off their swing mechanics."
- "These bat trajectory and time to contact details suggest that an elite batter is capable of more closely replicating their conventional swing mechanics when swinging at simulated competition speeds with the Swing XP bat than a traditional barrel weighted bat."
- "Participants believed that the Swing XP bat allowed for a faster bat velocity and reduced swing length when compared to the bat with the barrel weight."
- “One difference between the two weighted bats was the ability for the participants to swing the Swing XP bat at a faster velocity than the bat with the barrel weight”
- When asked whether they would train with a Swing XP bat, 68% of the players said yes.
