Good evening, being a new bat maker, when ordering billets, how do I determine if the quality of billets I receive are of good quality? There seems to be so many variables from straight grain, weight of billet for specific model ( is there a std size?), moisture content, sapwood? Etc... Any insights would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, Kevin

It takes time to learn the difference.  You can buy a template to judge slope of grain, otherwise you develop an eye.  Billets can vary in weight by over 30%.  They generally come in a standard size- 37x 2.75.
