Exit Velocity/Bat Speed
What are your recommendations for devices that measure bat speed or exit velocity of a softball when hitting? There are a lot of discussions about bat speed vs what type of bat you should use. I would like to find out what my bat speed actually is and I know others would like to do the same. Seems like it would be a useful tool to tweak your swing with as well. Thanks in advance for any recommendations you have.

Exit Velocity/Bat Speed
Hi STLO, I have a small unit that measures bat and golf club swing speed. I found it useful for off season bat speed drills and also found it useful in evaluating optimal bat weight relative to bat speed.

I've had the Swing-speed radar. It was good to measure swing speed but not ball exit speed. ( maybe I didn't set it up properly :) )
I now have a pocket radar.
I find much better. I hear they now have a later version that works with your cell phone.
Maybe someone can expand on this.

Thanks EV and Bruce for the comments. It would be great if there was a device that could both show bat speed and ball exit velocity. Not sure that exists.

Bruce. Seems like there are a lot of different versions of the Pocket Radar. What model are you using? I'm assuming that it measures your exit velocity of the softball. Is that correct?

It's been a couple of years since I have used it. I seem to remember having trouble differentiating between the two. Sorry
