How do you determine whether you need Regular Flex or a Stiff Flex bat? It's a good question. It's a difficult question. When a guy comes in we explain to them the difference in regular flex and stiff flex. Flex creates more bat speed, and bat speed is going to give you more distance when hit.
STIFF FLEX is for the power hitter. Easton engineers say stiffer flex is for the bigger, stronger player; the power hitter, the kid hitting in the 3, 4, 5 position in the batting order. Stiff flex bats are for the kid that's hitting doubles, triples, homeruns. He's the boy hitting the ball deep...
REGULAR FLEX is for the player that isn't quite as strong, the kid that's just getting base hits, bunting all the time, or hitting down the middle just trying to find the spots to dump the ball.
Sometimes just looking at them you can see: Hey Mr. Customer, you're 16 years old and 130 lbs. Stiff flex is not for you. You can go hit with it in the batting cage if you like it that's great, but there's a difference behind what this bat is built for and it's built for stronger hitters to be able to flex the bat and create more head speed.
