Flared Knob | Medium Handle | Quick Transition | Medium Barrel
29"(-5) - Slightly End Loaded
The X-Bat Model 73Y is crafted after The Model 73 wood baseball bat, which is the most popular, new style in the Big Leagues. It has a tapered medium sized 15/16" handle flaring to a very large knob with a full 2 1/4" barrel. The large knob serves as a counter weight making the bat feel balanced and lighter than other shapes with the same weight. Great balance and feel for young player's smaller hands.
Whether it's BBCOR, USA Baseball, or USSSA Certification - all one-piece wood bats (except bamboo) are allowed for use - with or without the certification markings. This means every bat in our lineup is considered certified, or rather certification not required. Because every one of the above mentioned standards are designed to make a metal bat respond more like a wood bat.
If the standard is make metal bats respond like wood bats - meaning they take away all the benefits of metal bats(ie: exit velocity), but don't give you back any of the benefits of wood (immediate feedback)... Then why would any serious player use anything but wood? Nothing can provide you the immediate feedback that a wood bat gives, both in terms of sound and feel. Miss the sweet spot? Those stinging hands will tell you so! Plus wood bats don't have a trampolining effect, because they aren't hollow. Wood is the only option for players who want to be their best. No matter who your favorite pro player is, there's one thing that's for sure - he swings a wood bat. You should too.
