A nod to the Marucci AP5, the Viper Bats Elite AP5 is known for its large sweet spot and flared handle making it a top option for power and gap hitters alike.
Viper Elite Series bats are design-driven, professional models that start with America's finest, pro-grade, hand-split wood the TOP 10%. Your Elite Series bat is crafted from a hand-selected billet, chosen specifically to suit your order, then precision-cut on our CNC lathe, hand-sanded, 360° hand-boned and finally; hand-finished to make the hardest, most durable bat on the market.
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.
