Buck.  I put a "free" ad on craigslist and have no shortage of people who come by and pick it up.  I just leave it outside in contractor garbage bags and it goes away!  Same with all my scrap lumber.

MARUCCI SPORTS ACQUIRES VICTUS

Feb 15th 2017


THE BRAND THAT DETHRONED LOUISVILLE SLUGGER ACQUIRES UP-AND-COMER

BATON ROUGE, La. – Marucci Sports announced today it has acquired Victus Sports, a custom wood bat manufacturer and Big League bat supplier who Marucci identified as a rising star in the baseball world.

"This acquisition made perfect sense,” said Marucci Co-Founder and CEO Kurt Ainsworth. “Victus adds value to Marucci's culture and balance sheet, so it is accretive in every way.”

More than ten years ago, Marucci launched in a backyard shed with the goal of becoming the Number One Bat in the Big Leagues. Since then, the brand has overtaken the traditional companies and solidified itself as the gold standard in baseball.

As a disruptor in an otherwise nostalgic industry, Marucci is committed to continuing its upward blueprint for success, which has grown to include identifying young brands poised for similar market disruption and rapid growth.

Marucci immediately recognized itself in Victus as a new, disruptive, innovative brand and after further diligence, found their premium brands were born of the same DNA - a player-centric philosophy and obsessive attention to quality.

“Victus will energize Marucci to continue to be a disruptor in our industry, and Marucci will accelerate Victus' growth into all product categories,” Ainsworth said.

"We were inspired by Marucci from the beginning,” said Victus Co-Founder and CEO Jared Smith. “They have a tremendous team of great people, and we share their hunger for success. It's an honor to be able join them on their mission of growing the game by delivering the products players want and need to be successful."

Hey John you can't hardly get that weight. You have to go up the tree.
One can get the weights down to .400.
. 450 is usually pretty close otherwise.
.400 is usual maple weight.

Hey John McDougal thanks for catching the typo. 3x3x37" billets would weigh between 125-133 ounces. If they were the size I was talking about which is a little brouder is 2.75x2.75x37 and they are 80-100 ounces. They are incredible. I hit side by side with an ash bat and same weights on the 33" bats last week. The
Light pignut hickory out performed the Ash with out a doubt. 20 foot minimum distance on well hit balls. I had my college club team watch and tell me. Pignut and mockernut are strong enough to go up the tree and still be much stronger and durable than ash or maple. I turned 5 of them last year and I Ben trying to break them. All are in good condition. I have some college players hitting with them for batting practice and live practice pitching and I have been hitting cage balls and using against live pitching. I will keep trying.
