the most revolutionary
hitting aid on the market

The Hitting Knob is the most revolutionary hitting aid on the market today. It was designed by a long-time baseball player and coach with the use of physics and good old-fashioned experience.

We spent hundreds of hours designing and working out production. The first few prototypes were cobbled together from pipe fittings, rubber couplings, and bandsawed barbell ends – but were functional enough to test the theory. Soon we enlisted the help of a product designer and mechanical engineer to design, machine, and weld steel prototypes which were sent out to several Major league players for their feedback.

We continued to prototype and test several versions of the Hitting Knob, ranging from slip-on “swing weights” sized to fit a particular bat to universal designs which utilize a “clicking” mechanism for the ultimate rigid attachment regardless of knob size and style. The “clicking mechanism was the winner – this allows the Hitting KnobTM to fit all the baseball and softball bats on the market, while still being easy and intuitive to put on and take off.

We’ve tested weights ranging from 8 oz all the way up to 60 oz – finding the greatest muscle memory ‘bang’ and swing speed increase in the 8 – 30 oz range depending on the age and strength level of the individual using it.

I've never come across another tool that is so easy to use and highly effective in developing sound-hitting mechanics.

"I've been around the game of baseball my entire life and I've never come across a tool that is so easy to use and highly effective in developing sound-hitting mechanics. I wish I was able to use the Hitting Knob in my MLB days. There's truly nothing like it and I recommend players of all levels give it a try."

“The Hitting Knob has been huge in the development of our hitters. We regularly use the Hitting Knob to help hitters strengthen their swing and help feel the different adjustments to improve hitting mechanics. I haven’t seen anything that is as easy to use and effective as the Hitting Knob!”

"The Hitting Knob puts the weight in a place on a bat where it makes the hitter understand the feeling of the barrel releasing at the last second. To create that feeling with a product that is easily attached to your bat benefits our hitters tremendously. The fact that you can not only take dry swings but also use it for drills when the ball is in flight and have it feel right is something that I believe is a game changer. No other product out there like it!"

"I was introduced to the Hitting Knob during spring training and it has become part of my everyday training routine. With the weight being on the knob of the bat, it consistently forces me to keep my hands inside the ball, which trains my swing to get on the right path early on and unload the barrel through the zone."
