I can also recommend Phoenix. I currently have and NK43, S123, and a B356 all in ash. The B356 is my favorite. Larger barrel, medium handle, and a standard knob. Call Lefty and ask for the "flame with clearcoat barrel." You won't be disappointed. It looks awesome. But they can only do it with ash. TBH, I've moved away from maple almost completely.
See ball, hit ball.
Why'd you move away from maple?
Thanks for the info.
I could use an explanation on LS bats marked 1xx...
Just picked one up on ebay.
1XX is MLB quality wood mass produced for the minor leagues. We offer them several different models to choose from in various lengths. All of these models are turned and finished in our Pro department.
Hey guys... any recommendations for a wood bat for a 14yo HS player?
He currently swings a 32/29 very well, looking to pick him up a good wood bat to work with, and possibly use in games. Prefer balanced over end loaded. We've never had a wood bat at all, so I honestly don't know where to begin. I'd rather not break the bank if I don't have to...but don't want to replace the bat 3-4 times a year either by buying junk. Any advice would be appreciated.

Just saw a Glomar G-320. Dont know what other make model that translates to though.

he swings an MS20 Raw last i knew, but uses different bats left and right
I know that John posts on here every once and awhile (macdougallbats.com), but wanted to share my experience with my PowerWood since I got it a few weeks ago. I play in a 28+ MABL league in Indianapolis and it's an all wood bat league. I don't like using cheap bats, but I also hate the feeling of snapping a wood bat that i just dropped big bucks on, so i've been doing a lot of research the past few years on a durable composite. I came across macdougall bats last winter, but couldn't bring myself to dropping $189 on a bat i hadn't swung or felt (even though John offers a type of money back guarantee). This year, after continuing to check out his site and the research behind his unique bat, i took the plunge and am so happy with my doogie. I've only had 1 practice and 1 practice game with it so far, but it feels great, sounds great and performs great. I wouldn't mind seeing it in some different profiles, but I have nothing bad to say about it at all.
sorry if this sounds like a commercial...but just wanted to share some of my thoughts with the community. no matter what level you're playing at, if you're looking for a solid wood bat...check out macdougallbats.com. It's not cheap, but 6 bats were broken were broken in 1 practice game we played in last week which adds up quick (a couple were cheap bats, but a majority of them were nice maple or ash bats). Also has a great 4 month warranty!
Also, our other product is in the field being tested and is showing good results. Eventually, we will be offering a store line version too.
