    on a serious note..what do those rubber things in the handle actually do, I havent a clue.
    I know as a kid, we used to call them 'springs'...a 3 springer was better than a 2 springer, but I have a feeling we were chatting ****

    hmm i'd say it absorbs shock, as well as transfers power better to the actual bat.

    it's also a better way of bonding the wood together (most handles are 9 piece or above) so instead of glueing wood against wood (which wouldn't last long considering the forces acting on the bond), something more flexible and absorbing would be required.

    I dunno what material is used, but you could probably email a bat manufacturer and get a reply

    "I'd really like to continue talking about this conversation but, I have to go pee"

    As for the question at hand, I personally have no idea. The only work I've seen done on improving handle dynamics was Middlepeg and their work in using Kevlar inserts to increase the energy transferred from the handle upon impact to the rest of the bat.
