The ProHammer™ is an advanced-skill training bat that helps hitters learn to make consistent contact with the “sweet spot” of a bat, improves hand-eye coordination, and dramatically reduces a hitter's tendency to 'roll over' the ball. The ProHammer training bat is a highly effective hitting tool for hitting coaches, players, and organizations who are serious about performance.
The ProHammer baseball training bat is designed for use by advanced players and is being tested and used by selected professional and Division 1 power hitters.
While it is true that all game bats have a cylindrical hitting surface with potentially unlimited points of contact, the reality is that the best pro hitters consistently make ball contact along the narrow "edge grain" area of the barrel. They do this for two important reasons:
1) The edge grain represents the strongest area of a wood bat. Ball contact along the edge grain results in more hits and fewer broken bats.
2) More power and better ball control. Pro hitters train their wrists to bring the edge grain to the baseball regardless of where in the strike zone the ball is. Power, bat speed, and ball control diminish quickly as the wrists "roll" the edge grain away from contact.
The ProHammer is configured to provide narrow contact surfaces, rapidly training the hitter to not "roll" his wrists through the hitting zone. The narrow contact surfaces have a diameter, length, and curvature that is otherwise identical to a conventional wood bat...only the portion you don't need has been removed.ProHammer Promo
Tests have shown significant improvements in the following areas:
Designed and built to hit real baseballs, the ProHammer is manufactured using top-grade materials. The alloy hitting face does not "ping" but instead produces a sound similar to a professional wood bat when striking a baseball. ProHammer bats are balanced and weighted similarly to professional wood bats and are available in the following "minus-3" swing equivalents:

"I wanted to give you some feedback on your Pro-hammer training bat.
I have given one to our 14 and 15 year old teams in our Norcal baseball program along with Ohlone College (top 10 JC in the country)
and East Cobb Baseball (top youth baseball program in the country). The reviews I’m getting back are tremendous. The feedback you get
from the Pro-hammer is immediate!
We love how the Pro-hammer teaches you the proper bat-path and bat angle. The solid feel you get when you hit the ball properly with the Pro-hammer reinforces the
perfect swing. Conversely, the vibrating feel when you have the wrong bat path teaches you how to find the correct one! The great thing is that this training aid
grooves a professional swing- one that will hold up against all levels of pitching.
Jamal, I can’t thank you enough for introducing us to the Pro-hammer. It is a tool we use every day at practice or before a game. It is THE best hitting training
aid I’ve seen in over 25+ years of coaching baseball."

"Developing a powerful and precise swing is fundamental to better hitting performance.
The ProHammer's balanced design allows the hitter to hone his swing at game speed while hitting real baseballs. The unique shape of the barrel will instantly tell
the hitter whether each swing is off-sweet-spot, rolled-over, or absolutely perfect. A true development tool for hard-working players, the ProHammer is simply the

"The ProHammer is a great hitting training tool. When working off the tee the balance of
the bat allows me to undersand where my hands are at the point of contact."
- Ryan Spilllborgnhs, Colorado Rockies OF
"Our players use the ProHammer daily and this has given them better awareness of using their
hands and the importance of having barrel control with the swing."

"Combines visual acuity training with meaningful reps."
- Posted by Ligurian
"I bought the ProHammer based on the recommendation at this website (SwingSmarter.com). It was a
leap of faith and could have been another useless baseball tool. I'm happy to say, my son loves it! The ProHammer looks and feels good. More importantly, it combines visual
acuity training with meaningful reps. As the ad says, you have to follow the right bat path or the feedback is immediate--the ball pops up. Within 5 reps, my son was hitting
beautiful line drives. We only had a short time to work with the ProHammer the day it arrived, but the next day, at a hitting clinic, he had suddenly added about 60-80 feet to
the distance he was hitting, on par with the 15 year olds. I should mention my son has just turned 13 and is on the smaller/lighter side for his age group. I love it that you can
use it for BP in the cage unlike hitting sticks which can't be used on a real ball. Our order arrived so quickly, I didn't even know it had shipped yet!

" Just wanted you to know that we have loved the youth version of your ProHammer bat. My son plays for a
9u travel team and he started the season crushing the ball. We spend a lot of time at the ballpark and at the indoor cage. The ProHammer has drawn a lot of attention from other coaches
and players as we sing its praises. I think that you will begin to see some sales coming from the Charlotte,NC area.
Anyways I just wanted to say thank-you for your product we are loving it. Be looking for sales from Charlotte as we have become a raving fan of the ProHammer. "

" This is one of the best hitting aids I've seen in years. With correct soft toss drills you can't miss on
improving your game. One thing that hasn't been mentioned is that the sound and feel at the proper contact point accelerates mental and muscle memory, and this combination far exceeds any
existing hitting aid. Bert Strane 510-472-7215"
