    Yeah I've seen the these thanks but I thought it would be helpful to others if he posted a picture of his home made one?

    Yes - I'm curious as well -
    I posted that pic because it's a little hard to picture it from the description.

    I have used the whip hit for years in instruction. I have also tried and used the insider bat. My personal feelings are that I prefer the whip it over the insider bat for the following reasons.

    It gives you instant and immediate feed back
    It creates a front elbow drive that is needed in the swing that the insider bat does not
    The ball on ball contact has a sweet spot of a nickel. Your hand path has to be spot on to drive the ball up the middle
    To use it correctly it teaches a good first move to the ball.( If your a spinner it will not work)
    It forces the front shoulder to be closed more at contact than the insider bat does
    It forces you to finish high with proper extension. ( If you roll your wrists and finish around its going to bite you on the back)

    These are the huge reasons I prefer one over the other. And this is my opinion only your mileage may vary.

    There are those that hate it who never received proper instruction in how to use it and flail it around like a mace. Like any other tool when used correctly it has benefits that are again in my opinion very important to any hitter wanting to take their swing to a higher level.

    Tim,

    We are now a half year of using the whip hit for instruction and for HS Team. I'd have to say that I agree with all of the above.
    I am Cannonball on other sites. Also, I don't live in Ohio and so, keep that in mind when I make comments.

    Tim showed me some a few years ago and I made some. They were easy to make and great training tool. If my daughter would stop losing them it would be great but they are easy to make.

    Here is the one I made from the description. I need to add something in the handle due to it being very light.

    Tim, I do remember making these back in the day. I probably made 12 to 15 of them. My first one was made in Howard's garage...lol.
