a slight weight added to the end of the bat to make the whip around faster resulting in hr.

That the weight is more in the end of the bat instead of being equally dispersed.

I will never understand why people think weight causes the bat to whip around faster. That makes no sense at all. If it did, people would be drag racing semis and sumo wrestlers would be winning the 100 meters at the Olympics. What the extra weight does is better transfer force to the ball.

An endloaded bat will feel heavier because more of the weight is toward the end of the bat.

i meant to say shorter barrel produces greater bat whip.

Oppo's right.

Just like using a hammer to drive a nail basically.

Also to be technical not all endloads have short barrels. Worth & mikens have 14.5" barrels. Which further proves the point oppo was making. Not to offend anyone or anything

Fuzz and Oppo nailed it, pick what you feel most confident with. Bat for bat, should be able to hit an end load further but.... BJ Fulk hits further than me with a balanced bat and Kevin Filby hits further than me with an end loaded bat. So getting the right bat to fit your swing is most important.

I think Fulk and Filby hit further than you regardless of bat.
