Default Re: do heavy weights really affect us?

I have a 7 and 9 w and don't notice the difference. I also swing a 30oz softball bat for probably 9 hours a week so it is all relative. I use a full body swing for both bats and rods to help with power.

I also haul and double haul a lot which helps add distance while not adding much arm force and resistance.
