>>> For now I would have to agree that stopping the hands forward movement will not ceate a whip in the bat. What I see happening is the hands do follow a circular hand path, they have to unless I was just going to push them out there. I see the top hand trying to work around the bottom hand but the bottom hand is still moving forward at the same rate of speed as the top hand. As you get close to contact the lead shoulder is now farther away from the handle of the bat then the rear shoulder, so now the bottom hands direction is being changed from a forward circular path to a rearward pulling. Now the top hand can finally turn forward faster then the bottom hand causing the barrel to "jump" forward 2' - 3' while the hands may only be moving 4" - 6". So I guess you are not stopping the forward momentum but it is being changed to a push pull motion.
