Who knew carbon nanotubes could be so powerful? Scientists are finding more and more applications, including making stronger and lighter baseball bats and hockey sticks.
For example, nanotube baseball bats may have a wider sweet spot, less vibration and improved swing weight.
"We can't change or improve ultimate hit distance anymore because bats in each sport are governed and there are performance rules," said Matt Arndt, senior vice president of baseball/softball division at Easton Sports. "We'd like the best possible performance from the end cap to top of the grip. We strive for the best possible performance within rules along the whole surface of the bat. Optimizing swinging weight and optimizing feel -- we still feel there are gains to be made."
