Gary Long is personally invested in the development of the young player’s swing. With the Rope Bat™, he has a tool that can give personal feedback on hand position for any swing. Developing a consistent swing path to the ball and training that habit can be helped by the Rope Bat.
Head Softball Coach, Mary Hardin Baylor University, Belton, TX
The Rope Bat™ really helps my girls timing. They really like the sound of it when they hit it right. The Rope Bat™ gives them immediate feedback and allows them to correct their own mistakes. I would certainly recommend it for younger girls as well. Younger girls can pick this up pretty quick, maybe even sooner than older girls.
Head Baseball Coach at Southwestern University, Georgetown, TX
With the Rope Bat™ you know you’re going to get immediate feedback. You’re going to see ball off the bat, you’re going to see side spin, you’re going to see back spin, and it helps guys understand barrel position at contact.

Former President Texas High School Coaches Association
Head Coach at Westwood HS in Austin, TX for 33 years
The Rope Bat™ can be a connected and highly synchronized swing. ‘Connected’ has always been easy to see and difficult to teach. It takes a few swings to adapt to the Rope Bat™ , but you will ‘feel’ the Rope Bat™ connecting your swing efficiency.
Head Baseball Coach, McNeil HS, Round Rock, TX
The Rope Bat™ is a fantastic teaching tool for coaches and a fun way for players to improve their swing. This training device will actually force your hitters to stay connected through the swing while staying inside the baseball. Our kids love it!
Head Softball Coach Westwood HS, Austin, TX
The Rope Bat™ teaches athlete accountability, humility, and persistence. The Rope Bat™ teaches consistency. If you don’t swing the Rope Bat™ perfect, you WILL NOT hit the ball. It forces you to increase your bat speed and demands consistency with your mechanics.
