    Insider bat I have. Used it with a high inside tee setup. Worked on not 'plunging'. Picked it up for $2 @ goodwill lol
    Rope bat I honestly never thought it would make it in the market.

    I use a WhipHit.

    My opinions here are simply that, My Opinions. I'm an ex expert. I no longer care to have to be right.

    I've been using the ANYWHERE BALL for years... I've got the model that still called the MOJO....

    I second Cannonball on the WhipHit. DD's instructor uses it with her and I picked one up for her to use at home.

    We have been doing the “Manny Drill” with the insider bat lately. We warm the drill up off a tee first, with the tee centered on the player instead of at the front foot. When we do the manny drill I toss whiffles to their sternum or just below front arm pit.

    In concept, I like the insider bat or rope bat as a companion drill to using a heavy training bat like Swing Mechanic or Camwood. We also use knob weights that cable on the end of a regular bat. One is 8 oz, one is 12. (Awesome product, they aren’t made anymore but show up on eBay occasionally.) The light bats are the “under” component of sort of an “over/under” set. We don’t do much of it, it’s just kind of a warmup to whatever we are working on that day.

    We use the Insider Bat -- we call it the paddle.

    Good for our younger girls to get hands positioned correctly.
