MAX HAND SPEED
There are four parts to Diamond Kinetics’ overall Speed metric – Max Barrel Speed, Speed Efficiency, Forward Bat Speed and Max Hand Speed.
REAL WORLD SIMILARITY: When using a hammer and a nail, the quicker the hands are able to move in the act of striking the nail, the quicker the hammer will move toward the nail. The same is true as it applies to Max Hand Speed.
The speed the hands are traveling at the outset of the swing determine in part, the speed of the barrel of the bat. Thus, in order to maximize one’s Max Barrel Speed, it is necessary to maximize Max Hand Speed.
DK TIP: Using a bat that is too heavy for the player will decrease their Max Hand Speed.
