You've seen it before in your training facility, maybe you have seen the commercial, or perhaps you own it. The Momentus Speed Hitter is a relatively well known hitting product now and can be seen time and time again in baseball and softball training facilities. The question about any product has to be, is it any good?
Here is the commercial for the Speed Hitter if you have not seen it. From this you can formulate your opinions.
After watching this instructional video for the Speed Hitter, the answer would be an easy NO. Everything about how the players and coach use this product is backwards from what really makes great hitters great. The movements and the ideas that are being taught here are a sure way to limit any baseball or softball player, keeping them from their full potential.
The Speed Hitter itself however, is actually a really great hitting product if used the right way. In the following videos, I will first demonstrate how the information backing this hitting product is incorrect and why it can hurt most players ability to hit the ball harder and more consistently. Then I will then discuss how the product itself can be used to help a player feel where acceleration should actually come from, and how the barrel gets into the hitting zone.
I hope that you enjoyed watching my hitting product review of The Momentus Speed Hitter. I think that this hitting product can really help teach both baseball and softball hitters how to start proper barrel acceleration, if used the right way. If you have any questions about these videos or would like to me to review another product, please comment below!
