The ProVelocity™ Bat is a professional training tool designed to hit live balls. In order to make contact with a ball, batters must achieve their preset swing speed prior to impact.

How It Works

Inventor Elijah Taitel explains how the ProVelocity Bat works

Swing Speed Table

The patented sliding Power Barrel contains resistance bands that can be combined to provide swing speed settings ranging from 20 mph to 95 mph. The Swing Speed Table below shows the relationship between resistance and swing speed.
Dry Swing 15 Minutes Per Day to Increase Your Bat Speed The "double click" confirms your preset bat speed is achieved. Watch as Elijah Taitel increases his bat speed from 21 mph to 77 mph.

Engage Your Core for Early Bat Speed

Stop "pushing" the handle through the strike zone

Get The Swing Analyzer App

The Swing Analyzer app to uses your height, bat size, and resistance settings to calculate your preset Bat Speed. It also uses the ProVelocity Bat's unique audio feedback to calculate your Time At Speed, On Plane Efficiency, and Early Bat Speed Position.
The app recommends when to increase resistance as your swing mechanics improve.

Get The Bat Speed Program

Download SEC Coach Nate Headley's 10 week bat speed program.  Programming is available from ages 10U to Professional. Train 20 minutes per day 3 to 4 times per week and start ripping it to the opposite field.

Swing Without A Ball To Increase Your Bat Speed

Swing the ProVelocity bat in your backyard for fifteen minutes a day without a ball to develop the muscle strength and swing mechanics of a powerful swing.
Two audible "clicks" indicate that you have swung with enough power to drive the Power Barrel to the end of bat and back. Add resistance bands as your strength and swing efficiency increases.

Start Hitting Live Balls

Start hitting live balls off a baseball tee, in the batting cages, or on the field to increase hand-eye coordination.
In order to make contact with a ball, batters must achieve their pre-selected swing speed prior to impact. 

Coach Ferber - Don't Be Steep

Coach Ferber explains how to extend the time between "clicks" to get on plane early, be less steep, and spend more time in the "zone".

Casey Smith - Don't Loose The Barrel

Casey Smith at @outfronthitting uses a low resistance setting to let his student feel when the barrel releases.  The student is learning to rotate the bat on plane with his shoulders, not by dumping the barrel with his wrists.

Take Check Swings in the On Deck Circle 

With a recorded exit velocity over 104 mph, D1 commit Max Soliz Jr times his check swings with incoming pitches in the on-deck circle. With 30 pounds of resistance set, he listens for a "double click" to ensure he is generating 50 mph of early bat speed with his core alone.

Lock the Barrel for Weighted Warmup Swings

Underweight / Overweight Training

The ProVelocity Bat feels "light" when the power barrel is near the batters hands. It becomes "heavier" as centrifugal force drives the weighted power barrel to the far end of the bat.
When the ProVelocity bat is "light" batters learn to use their fast twitch muscles to drop the bat into the on-plane position quickly. 
Once on plane, the bat becomes heavier as larger muscles drive the power barrel down the shaft of the bat developing a powerful on-plane rotary swing.
