What do you look for in a cage bat (IE brand, material, length/weight vs game bat)
I look for the name rocketech.
my daughter uses for cage practice and cold weather. Virtually indestructible. End loaded and a drop 9 vs the LXT drop 10 she uses during summer.
Thank you. I assumed that I was overthinking it. But I was just curious what other people preferred, and if there was a method to the madness. I'll keep my eyes open for a Rocketech. I picked up a Demarini 34in drop 10 compared to her Mizuno 33in drop 10.
look for a 2005 or if your lucky a 2004 rocketech. good for cold weather too
I did manage to get a 2004 Rocketech btw. I'm almost as anxious for her to use that as a new bat.
My daughter now a senior in HS young will graduate at 17 uses two bats for cage practice. She uses and older either LXT or or the Combat Portent. Both -8. She also has worked her way up to a 33/30 wood bat for her heavy. She switches machines. 75mph baseballs and 55 mph softballs. Off a tee she uses both bats two buckets with 33/25 and 2 buckets 33/30 baseball wood bat. Total of 10 buckets or about 120 swings.
Here is vid with the 33/30 in a cage 75mph baseballs. Video is slowed down
Thanks for the detailed response and video! I appreciate seeing other people's regimen. Is the main reason for the baseball bat to force their swing to be more precise because of the smaller sweet spot?
