Traditional Knob | Medium Handle | Transition | Barrel
The KRD4 uses the same barrel profile of our very K271 but has a different handle and knob. The handle and knob come from Team Phoenix's Pro Player advisory board member Ronnie Dawson of the Astros. This handle and knob has a medium flare to it and is designed to provide comfort in your bottom hand and take away some of the stress and compression that comes from swinging a baseball bat. The KRD4 youth bat is perfect for all youth hitters who are wanting a professional players bat model, but in something they can swing with confidence!
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.
