First impression is that this bat weight is sleek and futuristic looking. The diffusing hole technology adds a "snakeskin" look to the weight which is appealing. The weights come in a range of vibrant colors as well as a more subdued gray and black which caters to most ballplayers. Those seeking a less flashy product, may be turned off by the color schemes, but given the performance and durability ratings, we think that the colors are something that can easily be overlooked. All in all it is a great looking product and was assigned an aesthetics rating of 8.5.
As far as performance goes, the VARO ARC™ training weight is top of the line. It's slim fitting technology provides for no wasted mass or weight distribution as it is evenly spread throughout the barrel of the bat. It is extremely efficient and not as cumbersome or stressful as other bat weights that give the user the illusion of swinging a sledgehammer in the on deck circle. The engineers behind this weight certainly got the physics behind this design correct as it provides the user with just enough added weight in order to maximize bat head speed and confidence in the batter's box. Because baseball players rely on fast twitch muscles in order to perform, overly heavy bat weights tend to work larger muscles that are not necessarily used while batting, it is relieving to find a weight that truly was crafted for a ballplayer. The Varo ARC was assigned a 10 for a performance rating.
Durability is always a question with on field training devices as they will be repeatedly used and abused on the field. The Varo ARC was crafted with a proprietary mix of plastic and synthetic filament, for ultimate durability and high performance that can be trusted to withstand repeated use and wear and tear that a typical ballplayer would undergo while training. You can expect this bat weight to not only service you but your entire squad for the whole season. Durability rating is a 9.5.
The only minor drawback to this training tool was the price point. Those who are on a budget, the Varo ARC trainer runs for $45, which may be considered out of the price range for some potential customers, but you can not put a price on top quality and that's we we feel confident that the product is worth the purchase. They have a no questions asked free return policy as well as "A percentage of proceeds from each LTD Pink ARC will be donated to Breast Cancer Awareness Foundations." For those interested in buying this product, they will find that they will not be let down by their performance and any serious ball player should seriously consider making this training tool part of their collection.
All in all, we were extremely impressed with the Varo ARC trainer as we immediately found that it was popular with friends and teammates looking to improve their performance. With the only drawback lying in the price point as well as a potential vibrant color phobia, we think this product makes a great addition to any ballplayer looking to upgrade their swing performance as well as their swag.
