The model 73 breaks all the typical molds as this fan favorite works well for the contact hitter and the power guy alike. It has the bulk of your typical power hitter's bat, yet features a large bell knob to counteract the end load of its huge barrel, increasing bat speed through the zone.
This increase in agility is one of the many reasons this model is a favorite among those smaller hitters with the desire to swing a larger bat As well as power hitters looking for the long ball.
The model 73 is one of the top selling bats in all leagues across all ages.
Your Viper Bat is made from hand-split billets that are individually selected specifically to suit your order. Your bat is precision-cut on our CNC lathe, hand-sanded, 360° hand-boned and finally; hand-finished to make the hardest, most durable bats on the market – backed up by our warranty.
The history of Viper Bats dates back to my senior year of high school in 2003. Wood bat leagues in our area were scarce and the options for players looking to play at the next level were limited at best.
So what did we do? We decided to take matters into our own hands and started Skagit Valley Vipers Fall Wood Bat team.
The team was comprised of local prospects with the sole purpose of preparing us for the next level by teaching us how to hit with wood bats. At the time, use of wood bats was rare; maybe one or two players per team owned their own, which wouldn’t last for long. Luckily for us, one of our assistant coaches had a friend who owned Splitrock Bats and a relationship was formed.
When our season ended that November, Don called Kevin, owner of Splitrock, to let him know the bats were a huge success and to expect future orders. Kevin was glad to hear it but regretfully had to inform my dad that he would be closing up shop to pursue an opportunity to go play winter ball in Venezuela. It was that phone call that sparked the idea of Viper Bats.
I don’t know how many bats we went through that fall, but I can tell you it wasn’t many, and I still have a couple left. It was with that quality, the kind that can survive a bunch of high schoolers that were learning to hit with the logo up for the first time, that Viper Bats was founded on. - Chris Fine
