Real World Results

Curious about what type of results you can expect using the Fast Bat in

conjunction with our Overload-Underload Power Development system?  

Well, we tested it out firsthand over the course of 6 weeks, originally in 2007.  Our results were nothing short of astounding.  We were able to add 34 mph to one player's swing and we were able to get two 17-year-olds up to 90 mph!  That tells you how powerful our product is.  Check out the results below and feel free to contact us regarding anything you see.  We have continued to use the product with players from Little League all the way up to the Major Leagues and have sold hundreds more since this initial test.  The results have withstood the test of time!

TESTING PROTOCOL


1)  All bat speed readings were obtained using the Swing Speed Radar.  Hitters would

stand in front of the bat speed monitor and take dry swings.  Pre- and Post-testing

conditions remained identical.


2)  The weight of the Overload-Underload bats used during the 6 week period was

determined by the players game bat weight.  All high school players tested out using

regulation -3 bats.


3)  It should be noted that the following program took place over the course of 6 weeks (18

total sessions).  However, a number of players missed a significant amount of time for

various reasons.  On a whole the players who were the most consistent in coming to the

sessions made the biggest jumps in bat speed.  If a player missed more then 3 weeks of

classes (9 total sessions), we made note of it.  


4)  As a reference, it has been proven that for every 1 mph in bat speed a player gains, it

will increase the distance the ball travels by 6 feet (see reference)!
