Bat Model Guide

Navigating the world of baseball bats can be a maze of choices, each promising distinct advantage. At B45, we understand the challenge. Our Bat Model Guide is your concise map to help you easily find the perfect bat tailored to your playing style. Here are few determinant factors to guide your choice.

First, and probably more important one, is feel. It represents how weight is distributed in the bat. Of course, a bigger barrel shifts weight toward the end. But barrel's size doesn't mean much without knowing handle's size. A bigger handle slides weight back towards the hands. We classified feels of our bats in 3 self-explained categories: Balanced, Slightly End-Loaded, and End-Loaded.

Second factor is barrel shape. Some barrels are longer, some larger, and others are tapered.  A medium barrel size, on a 33" bat, is about 2.45".

Third factor is knob type. It depends solely of your comfort. Some crave bulky, tapered knob while others prefer squared knobs. There are no advantages on each other than your comfort.

Last important factor is wood density. We need to underline is that a wood barrel cannot be emptied, unlike metal barrel. Therefore, a bigger barrel will inevitably weight more. More volume needs lighter wood to get the same weight. Light woods lead to lesser durability of the bat. That's why bigger weight ratio (-5 and more) on custom bats will use too light wood for us to be able to guarantee the bats. That's also why we recommend smaller barrel bats to youth and batters beginning to swing wood.
