In the game of baseball I have come across numerous training devices for vision training for the swing and other facets of the game. Most are good
but not all apply to every hitter and no certain one seemed to really lock down the strike zone. Occasionally you come across that golden nugget that seems to transcends your previous training methods and applies to every hitter. The V-Flex Visual Reflex Hitting System is that golden nugget for me.
In my twenty-five plus years of playing and teaching hitting the V-Flex Visual Reflex Hitting System continues to leave the most impressionable mark on me, for its ability to teach hitter’s to see and learn the strike zone.
Okay before you think I’ve jumped out into space here is my history and introduction to the VFlex. more…
“The biggest thing you can do as a hitter is swing at strikes and V-Flex really trains hitters to stay focused on hitting strikes”

How Does V-Flex Work?
The “Big Picture”
How To V-Flex
V-Flex incorporates the fundamentals of neuroscience to enhance the visual learning environment during batting practice. V-Flex uses patented visual tools to create absolute depth value points along the ball’s path to home plate. These values are brain generated and impact the brains perception of the pitch. They ultimately help the hitter derive the exact speed and location of a pitch. The end result is more quality at bats (QAB). We ask the hitter to focus in the designated area the represents the best strikes to hit once they reach home plate. The bulk of our training is in the form of front toss training and easy to implement into daily cage routines.
How does the brain determine the exact speed and location of a pitch so the hitter can consistently make solid contact at the plate? The answer lies in relative depth perception and absolute depth values. Exposing hitters to absolute depth values generated by V-Flex during batting practice helps their brains calculate depth values in real time. This immersive learning environment provides the necessary components for developing early pitch recognition skills for hitters.
V-Flex is the staple piece that bridges my whole hitting system together. It does what no hitting instructor can do manipulate, enhance, and teach hitters, the true brain based strike zone.
