About the 1-Handed Drills PB Wood Bat:
To insure proper form, there is nothing better to refine your swing mechanics then by practicing with a short bat. It forces you to pay attention to the different elements of swing mechanics. If you are serious about hitting, spent part of your training time on drills.
Hitting balls off a tee, start by taking 15-20 one-handed swings, first with just your top-hand on the bat in its normal game bat position and then hitting with your bottom hand in normal position. This helps ingrain proper form: keeping your shoulder tucked in, elbow close to your body, staying through the ball when you follow through. Without distraction of pitch location, speed or other variable out of your control, you are able to focus on establishing a great swing.
The PB one-hand drill training bat is great for any player as it offers a smaller diameter barrel, helping keep the weight very manageable. An added plus is the extra hand-eye coordination development it yields. We recommended going with a PB wood bat trainer 5" shorter than your game bat. Coupled with the barrel size, the weight is well distributed, allowing you to get the PB 1-hand trainer through the hitting zone with ease. If you are late in high-school or post-high school and are a big guy, consider the PB43 with a bigger barrel, emulating a power hitter's bat.
