Default Endloaded vs Balanced

Why is it balanced bats feel better in my hands, but I've been hitting better with endloaded bats than I ever have hit with balanced ones?


I usually swing a TechZilla or NanoTek, but I've been much more consistent with a White Steel.

I swung nothing but endloads for a while. I like the extra push on the ball. I use an og one now and it's pretty balanced and swings light, so I'm still slightly adjusting. I'd rather swing endloads though.

I too prefer a bat with a little endload. Nothing too crazy, though.

lighter or balanced bats always feel great in my hands just flipping my wrists around but when it's time to unload a swing from your ass i feel a lot more confident with some weight behind my swing.

I bet that sounded so much better in your head.

I used to swing balanced, but now I like the end loaded a little more

Use that anger, and join the Dark Side. RT > TZ. You can feel it inside you now. The force is strong with you.

Considering I am not a bomb droppa (though I do hit the occaisional HR), I see no need for an endloaded bat. However, balanced has always felt better in my hands.

I like the EL. Since i dont have the fastest hands in the world the EL helps pull the bat around and put some pop behind it.
