Too many unnecessary drills are out there that takes a hitter away from his comfortable hitting stance and mechanics. This disrupts the consistency a hitter needs to become complete. Our design has our hitters swinging from their stance, no eyewash, no unnecessary movements. the hitter will get his work in while using his stance and mechanics he will use in a game.
