    The DR series of wood baseball bats are perfect for the transition of a young player moving from a youth bat to a bat with a full-size barrel.

    Normally, at age 12–13, a hitter outgrows their K455, K240, or K271 wood youth bat. This is a result of physical size, league requirements and/or the speed of pitching now faced. Stick with a youth bat and the chance of breaking the wood bat increases greatly. Go to a high-school weight bat too soon and your young hitter starts picking up bad habits (like dropping the shoulder and dragging the bat through the strike zone).

    Enter the DRD4 to give the big 12–13 year old a power hitter's wood bat. The DRD4 transition bat is another great option for the youth player moving from a lighter weight bat and looking for something heavier before advancing to an adult bat. The DRD4 is similar to our DR271, but the difference is in the handle and knob. The flare on the DRD4 is classified as a medium flare and has a slight lip on the knob. Modeled after the RD4 for the Astros Ronnie Dawson.

    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.
