The Bat Jack is a great hitting aid if you are trying to flip the bat after your arms are extended (which is what Bustos teaches). If you want to hit at a high level (like Bustos actually did in games), this is not what you are trying to accomplish.

You want a death grip with the top hand, and a 90 deg forearm to bat angle, with no slack whatsoever in the wrist.

i have a specific need in terms of a mid season fix that is needed ASAP, and this would help greatly......i'll take it that means you do not have one, then?

I'm not parting with the one I have but I don't see why you can't mold your own with something like Polly Plastics. You heat this stuff up and shape it however you like. If you want to put it on a training bat even better because when it's really hot it gets sticky. I just ordered some Kydex to try for this reason.

Also, I recall that the guy who made the Bat Jack used to participate here, that's how I heard of it.
