Any thoughts on the Hands Back Hitter Pro?

Swing Smarter Response:
Please note: the above picture and below video are of the Backyard Batter, NOT the Hands Back Hitter Pro...the Backyard Batter is a much healthier swing alternative.

Thank you for your post Matt, we've reviewed The Hands Back Hitter HERE on SwingSmarter.com.

The main problem my hitting clients have with this hitting aid is the fact you have to forcefully step on the trigger (a string) to get the ball to pop up, which could really develop some bad habits such as: over-striding or causing the eyes to bounce.

The stride should gently slide forward, with the weight on the inside ball of the foot.

If you want to train the swing to truly keep the "hands back" try the Backyard Batter (pictured above & featured in Swing Smarter's The Starting Lineup online store featuring "The 9 Best Baseball Hitting Aids on the Planet," the link to the store is below the video :)

Thanks Matt!


P.S. Wondering which baseball hitting aids are worth their weight in gold? Frustrated scowering the internet for over-hyped highly endorsed swing gadgets NOT doing a darn thing for your swing?

Swing Smarter and FOWL Ball's The Starting Lineup store is just what the baseball world is looking for...it's where we can find the "9 best baseball hitting aids on the planet."

It takes a lot for a hitting gadget to crack The Starting Lineup, because there are only 9 spots available.

Unfortunately, they aren't cheap AND some require a hefty investment...however, everyone knows we get what we pay for. If we purchase cheap baseball hitting aids, then we'll get cheap results; and if we're a seeker of non-quality non-functional products, then we'd highly recommend NOT visiting
The Best Starting 9 today. Junk in, means junk out.
