Swing Quality

By analyzing millions of swings, from players at the Professional, Collegiate, Elite Academy and Youth levels, we have proven that the best hitters are always strong in three major components of the swing, Plane, Connection and Rotation. Blast can now automatically assess every swing and provide insights and drills for further development. It’s just that easy!


Measures the percentage of your swing where the bat is on the swing plane. Your vertical bat angle at contact establishes the plane for that swing. Plane is a great indicator for making more consistent contact on the barrel of the bat.


Measures the relationship between your body tilt and vertical bat angle at impact. Maintaining good connection (90 degrees) for all pitch locations is an indicator of dynamic adjustability.


Measures how quickly your bat accelerates into the swing plane. Rotation is a good indicator of how you build bat speed by sequencing properly. The quicker your rotational acceleration, the more power you will have and the more time you have to adjust to pitch locations.
