• What is the Ultimate Rope Bat®?
The Ultimate Rope Bat® is a baseball and softball swing trainer that utilizes centrifugal force to create bat speed and teach hitters to stay connected by using their entire body throughout the swing. The Ultimate Rope Bat ®, literally in a matter of minutes, gives the feedback necessary to provide hitters with a complete understanding of the feeling and look of a good swing. Be sure to watch the instructional video on our home page before using your Ultimate Rope Bat!
• Why is it the Ultimate Rope Bat®?
This is the Ultimate Rope Bat® because it is ONE SIZE FITS ALL! From 5-year old beginners playing tee ball to 25-year old major leaguers. Young hitters will never outgrow their Ultimate Rope Bat®. This is truly the ultimate swing trainer a player will ever need, at any age!
• Why not just use a real bat to teach hitting?
Practically anyone can hit a ball, but hitting a baseball or softball correctly and consistently with authority is another matter. While the typical bat is heavy, the Ultimate Rope Bat ® weighs only a few ounces, forcing real connection between the bat head and the body. Since the weight of the real bat is gone, hitters receive instant feedback about how to correct, connect, and perfect their swing. How? To hit the ball with authority they must swing fast by being connected with their body. Ultimate Rope Bat® reinforces this movement with each and every swing.
• Where can the Ultimate Rope Bat® be used?
The Ultimate Rope Bat ® can be used during team practice, instructional camps, the back yard, in the garage, or even in the on-deck circle. It’s also great for stations around the batting cage. Once the basics are learned, hitters don’t need a coach looking over their shoulder; the Ultimate Rope Bat ® helps them coach themselves. Through instant feedback, their confidence soars. They are invested and take ownership in their swing, and the mystery of hitting the ball hard is solved!
• Can I use real balls or softballs?
