We need a measurement for bat handle flex.
I've been thinking about different bat characteristics. Everyone know we have length and weight. At one time one manufacturer had the swing weight marked on their bats. Some of us still measure our swing weights. I'm thinking manufacturers need to measure handle flex and put it on the bat.
The Geezer was known for its flex and I've heard from several that the Ambush also has more flex than other models.
It would be nice if manufacturers would measure this flex and have it on the bats.
Maybe it would be easier for me to somehow measure the flex on my bats.
Any ideas?

They do it for hockey sticks, so I see no reason why they couldn't do it with bats.
