Multi-Wall External Sleeve -- The Power of RockeTech
Designed specifically for the diamond sports enthusiast -- and unlike composites that gradually rise to a short-lived maximum potential -- Anderson's design and use of high-performance materials and components will deliver superior performance and will maintain a solid feel throughout the bat's life.
Before Anderson's PowerArch design, there were two basic schools of thought for a multi-wall interface configuration: The first was that bat walls are loosely fit with a space that is filled with a viscous medium so the walls flex consecutively, one and then the other. The second was that bat walls would fit snugly, and have constant contact so the walls would flex simultaneously.
Each of these has its advantages and disadvantages. The outside shell/inside sleeve with a space had better overall performance, but was more susceptible to denting. The outside sleeve/inside shell with constant contact was a little more durable, but traded overall performance. Both designs had two separate walls of equal thickness.
The Anderson PowerArch combined the two schools of thought. By having a series of opposing arches where there is intermittent constant contact and alternating separation between walls, it allows the walls to flex both independently and concurrently. It allows for a differentiation in wall thicknesses that improves the shortcomings of the above design forms.
The RockeTech, by design-necessity, is considered more of an end-loaded bat. It has more end-load and a higher MOI than the TechZilla. It is also more responsive at lower speeds to compensate for the bat speed lost due to the end-load and resulting MOI.
The name speaks for itself. The RockeTech is like no other. A lot of high performing fastpitch bats are composite now a days. Anderson uses a different concept. They use a Multi-Wall all Alloy bat. When the player swings, this bat is working on the inside to create a lower swing speed. When one make contact with this bat the ball jumps due to the trampoline effect. The RockeTech is considered to be a end heavy bat, but if able to swing it watch out fielders!
