This is for a single bat fitter; a package of three can be found as another product. This does NOT include the sensor.
The Bat Fitter is a patent-pending product that, when coupled with a bat sensor, can identify a hitter's optimal swing weight. What this information allows the hitter to do is select bats in an objective manner. By only considering bats that fit the hitter's ideal swing weight profile, the hitter will be choosing from bats that he can be confident fit him. Essentially, this takes the guess work out of selecting a bat based on someone else's subjective description of "balanced" vs. "end-loaded." By moving to an objective measurement, players can add confidence to both their purchase and their performance.
The bat fitters work by moving the weight in the barrel region to manipulate the weight distribution. By aligning the weight at the barrel end of each pre-determined mark, we can utilize the known swing weight for that weight location and can use that information to make a recommendation to the hitter based on his performance at that mark compared to the other marks. By following our Bat Fitting Instructions, a player can go through the process in about 10-12 minutes, the data from the fitting can then be input into our website, and the recommendations are returned in under 15 minutes.
The Bat Fitter is generally cut from ash, but we can substitute maple at our discretion to ensure proper weights can be maintained. The bat fitter comes in raw to ensure that any moisture gained or lost is done proportionally throughout the bat, so as not to effect the data supporting the recommendations. The Bat Fitter is generally cut to -3, but with moisture gains and losses may increase or decrease. As long as the fitter is weighed before each fitting session, and an accurate weight is entered, the data processing we do will still provide accurate recommendations. Each order including a fitter will also include a hex key to adjust the weight, but in the event you misplace it, it is a standard 3/16" hex key.
Each fitter will cover the entire span of our bat models for the length it represents, but, depending on the data retunred from a given fitting session, may also return recommendations for a shorter or longer bat, or potentially suggest a transitional model. The information that can be obtained from the fitting process is incredibly valuable for help players obtain an edge.
With proper care, one Bat Fitter should last a very long time, so this can be viewed as investment as much as a purchase.

We recommend using the Bat Fitter by hitting tennis balls off a tee. This help preserve the life of your bat fitter and help you avoid unnecessarily cutting up baseballs with the weight. Using tennis balls does not impact the sensor readings, so accurate data is still returned.
