DUAL HITTING HEADS
The two sizes of target (3.0in and 2.1in) provide versatility in using this product. Softball players or beginner baseball players will benefit from using the larger one - slightly larger than a standard baseball - as it serves as a smaller target for softball players, and a larger-than-standard target for beginner baseball players. More advanced baseball (and softball) players can progress onto the smaller size. Once the smaller-than-standard size is mastered, hitting a standard ball in a game situation becomes easier, allowing for more focus on target control and power.
SHOCK ABSORBING IMPACT FOAM GRIPS
The Swing Target Stick has soft foam grips which reduce vibration and fatigue for the coach-parent who is holding the target stick during training. This means longer sessions without discomfort - something other brands don't offer.
GET UP CLOSE & INCREASE HIT POWER, COORDINATION & MUSCLE MEMORY
The Target Swing Stick is a controlled, safe way to allow parents or coaches to get in close to the swing, observe and feel the action of the batter and the reaction of the ball once hit. No danger of a rogue ball flying off the bat and injuring the parent or coach - just close-up, detailed training information.
SIMULATE VARYING PITCHES
If you want to increase a player's ability to react to changes in ball flight due to factors like spin and wind, you can change the position of the ball mid-swing, a little up or down perhaps, allowing the player to compensate with a quick adjustment of his/her own.
