I find for myself that a longer stride improves my power. Am I correct? what is the downside of a longer stride and what is your opinions. Also since I don't have great bat speed I find for myself that a 30 once bat gives me more power. It just feels comfortable. This goes against all thinking. Am I delusional. My friend feels the same way. Also does rolling reduce the life of the bat and how much does shaving add to power vs reducing bat life

Shaving and rolling reduces your penis size. Everything before that as far as stride and bat weight if what works best for you. Swing the heaviest bat you can with good bat speed. Others will may or may not tell you different as it is what works for them.

If you can maintain, or nearly so, your bat speed when going up in weight then you should gain some power. As for the long stride, up to the point where it hinders rotation. Then it becomes counter productive.

I don't approve of rolling and shaving is chickenshit. Rolling does reduce the life of the bat. It flexes the bat and starts breaking the resin and fibers. The bat only flexes so many times before it eventually breaks and the harder it flexes, the fewer times it will flex.
