That is the node point. As the impact point moves closer to the node point, bat vibrations get weaker and the shot feels nicer. An impact near the tip of a bat will generate bad vibrations and it will also cause the handle to jerk forwards (towards the bowler), pulling your hand and arm with it.
But engineers in India say that they can reduce vibration without breaking the regulations. Instead of using new materials, they have changed the shape of the bat handle to fit a batter’s hands. Some bat handles are oval; others circular. But while engineer Aayush Tapuriah, co-founder of Elevar Sports, was overseeing mould studies to help discover the optimum shape, he realised that the perfect bat handle would be a combination of the two.
A startup from Mumbai has designed and manufactured a cricket bat with an ergonomic handle, superior grip, vibration dampener and aerodynamic blade. Here's how they made it.

Today, majority of cricket bats are typically made from 2 types of willow wood: English willow and Kashmir willow. The handle, usually designed as rounded or oval, is made up of materials like cane, wood, or twine, and integrated with a tiny portion of rubber “springs” to reduce the vibration on the bat handle.
