I used to use this bat in baseball some 20+ years ago. At least this handle. I don't think it helps a mature ball player - but for the younger ones it kind of forces your hands to break the wrist at the right moment and gives the end of the bat more batspeed than you'd have gotten naturally.

Once you learn to break the wrists naturally, it actually just feels uncomfortable.
