There are three parts to Diamond Kinetics’ overall Power metric Impact Momentum, Maximum Acceleration, and Applied Power.
REAL WORLD SIMILARITY: Cars with higher powered engines go from 0-to-60 miles per hour faster than cars with lower powered engines. Therefore, a batter who generates more Applied Power during a swing would have a ‘higher powered engine’, thus allowing for the bat to reach a higher swing speed quicker.
DK TIP: A heavier bat may result in higher Applied Power, as long as barrel speed is maintained.
SWINGTRACKER FROM DIAMOND KINETICS CAN HELP KEEP TRACK OF APPLIED POWER AND OTHER SWING METRICS.
