Club Bat Fitting Experience - 60 minutes

The Future of Cricket is Now!

Do you want to score more runs?

Keen to dominate with the bat?

Look no further - CPL Bat Fittings are here to change the game!

Only players at the most elite level have had access to the volumes of bat’s needed to find the one closest to the perfect bat for them.

 

 

The technology matrix and experience of CPL Master Fitter’s Chris Hall & Shannon Young provides players with the highest level of service available in the cricket world.

 

The very first step in our process is to determine a players Key Performance Indicator - what is the single outcome variable that will positively impact and improve performance to achieve the best outcome for their game.

This could be Exit Velocity (Timing), Launch Angle, Shot Direction, Bat Velocity/Speed, Bat Control, Time to Impact or even a shot type or delivery type.

Within the Club Bat Fitting Experience data is collected using our Stancebeam bat sensors & Optical Launch Monitor

 
  

THE FITTING PROCESS

After the consultation process we test the players physical capacity and competency.

This involves the OnBaseU Level 1 Screens, TPI Level 2 Power Screens, as well as a series of biometric measurements used by The Baseball Performance Lab and now customised for cricket.

  
 

Capturing this information allows us to use our AI Supervised and Unsupervised models to learn more about how each individual’s body and bat work together.

After the physical screening is complete the next thing we do is analyze the static and dynamic properties of the players current bat. 

 

The static measurements include the length, weight, profile, handle, and most importantly Balance Point Index (BPI). BPI being our proprietary inferential measurement that allows us to compare how one bat swings compared to another, even across different profiles and weights.

 
 

Below is a detailed timeline of our in-house process for this Bat Fitting Experience.

1. OBU Screening, TPI Power Testing, BPL Biometric Measurements and Player Interview

• This is where we measure the limb lengths, grip strength, horse power, range of motion and gain player input about strengths & weakness of their game, favourite shots, why the player uses their current model bat etc…

Capturing this information allows us to use our AI Supervised and Unsupervised models to learn more about how each individual’s body and bat work together.


2. Bat Testing & Data crunching

• We test the players bat plus 3 bats from our BPI matrix, based on the data in phase 1

• 12-20 seconds rest between swings

• Goal is 12 well timed shots in play

• Average is 16 deliveries by professional players to achieve this

• We create variability & match realism into the process by using actual cricket balls in our 3 wheel machine specifically developed for our bat fitting process

• "Delivery Light” is mounted by the machine which is lit up at random by your Bat Fitter

• Your Master Bat Fitter keys multiple data points from every delivery into our BAT-RX software including your subjective rankings

3. Rest time

• We use sensor changes and data tagging to create a 4-5 minute rest between bats

• This ensures that fatigue isn't a factor in the accuracy of our data

• We also collect subjective data on feel & performance of each bat

4. Post Fitting Discussion & Analysis

• This is where we ask your preferred bat shape, what they like about it etc

• From the Lab Command Centre we provide performance feedback relative to your bat and your KPI & all our BAT-RX data to you

• We collect information on personal preference; Shape/Handle type, toe shape, 2nd bat variability

• On conclusion of presenting our data & findings to you we will recommend the BPI Bat that best suits the desired outcome

• Post fitting we will work directly with the Bat Maker to ensure that you can repeatedly make the same product with minimal waste.
