  • Short rant: I don't like wood bat companies that don't list the turn model in the description. If it's the Happy Bat Company and they have a model called the HB271, okay, I know it's going to be similar to a C271. But if they call a model the HB044 just put dimensions in the description, I have no idea what it will look or swing like. In other words, it gives me nothing to picture.

      • Have Jaw Bats making a unique I13 like bat. Similar to Acuna’s model, but with more end load, uncupped and extra weight to make the model more dense.

        I’ve always had good contact skills but my swing was too level/downward to generate any chance of extra base hits. Now that I can lift the ball, I need some end load to help with my distance and sweet spot

        • Jaw Bats are 'spensive. Very hard to fine a decent wood bat for less than 100 bucks. And Pro Bats is closing because Charlie is retiring. Charlie makes a quality bat.

            They charge roughly the same as some of the big brands, only when wanting truly crazy customs is when they shock me. Prairie Sticks still has Dropbombs for a coupon to have stock wood bats for 75 USD and roughly 100-120 for custom wood bats. And I have videos to back up their quality.

            Also, bots are getting smarter every year

            • $180+ for a wood bat is still shocking to me.

                Simply supply and demand. Would love to have discounted bats from LS as a MLB player, but that wasn’t in the cards. Most bats are now $180.

                THere’s still Prairie and Prowler bats where I can something cheaper and try new wood bats, but even they are raising in price

                • Max Bat is now on the "cheaper" end for a very fine bat.

                    Check Archer Bat Company. His prices are right around $100 and he makes a quality bat. My son has switched over to using just his woods. The other day he hit his farthest ball ever with a woody using an Archer.

                      They have a large variety of profiles. Website lacks important details like handle and barrel diameter, model description, as well as bigger photos of bats. Also doesn't mention the differences between "pro custom" and "signature" for $5.

                        Pro Custom will have the ink dot test. Signature does not. I had asked the owner the same question before I ordered my sons 141.

                        I do agree that the website could be better. He is a one man operation. So I think he spends most of his time turning bats and not so much on the website. He is very responsive on Instagram if you message him there with questions.

                        • I don't do social media. My baseball league folded. The nearest MSBL plays over an hour from me. Not exactly feasible with my work schedule. I'm not ready to quit playing baseball, but the sun is getting high on my career. There are a few modified fastpitch leagues close by. But they don't use wood bats.

                            is that model the CF9?

                            Edit... Nevermind, I thought it read Archer Bat, then I re-read and I see it's Anchor lol
