CHOOSING THE RIGHT BAT

Wood Species.All of our bats are premium maple and birch. Most players prefer maple as it is known for being the hardest wood and having tightest grain. Players who order birch typically enjoy the slight flex they feel upon contact. Regardless of wood species, each bat is ink dot tested to ensure quality.

Bat Model. There are several of these to choose from. Each model represents a different way the bat is shaped, from handle to barrel. Most players prefer balanced, however power hitters typically lean towards end-loaded models.

Length and Weight.  Players prefer either -2 or -3 weight. Bat weight is measured by the minus or drop weight. Drop weight is the difference between the length and weight of the bat. The bigger the drop weight is, the lighter the bat will weigh.

Balanced Wood Bat Models

Balanced bats, are usually preferred by contact or power hitters, as they offer more controland often greater swing speeds. The trade-off with balanced models is usually thinner barrel profiles and diameters.

Slight-End Loaded Wood Bat Models

Perfect for the players looking to transition from a balanced bat to something with more barrel.

End-Loaded Wood Bat Models

Power hittersoften prefer bats with an end-load, or top-heavy feel.
More of the bat’s mass is located in the barrel, meaning its force will be
greater at contact compared to lighter barrels moving at the same speed.
