Paul, we have been making bats since 1992. I am also a life long woodworker who has made acoustic guitars,built houses,furniture ,boats and cabinets. We take pride in material selection and workmanship. A good bat requires good wood and we use and sell only the best.Thank you for your compliments and all the best this season. Christine and Tom

Well It has been almost two full seasons of oldtimers baseball and the two bats I won in the contest are still solid.  The workmanship is excellent, finish is beautiful, and the quality of the grain is pro stock all the way.  

I held back my final assessment till I was sure, and now I can tell you. these bats are top notch.
