I've been reading this forum for awhile. I still play and am amazed with the work you all do. I love collecting bats from different companies. I currently own bats from close to 30 different companies. I have also finally turned my first bats off of a Harbor Freight lathe. Babe Ruth couldn't swing these things, but at least they are mine.
So I'm interested in knowing what all companies are on here and what are your websites?
Bobby: That's cool you have bats from so many companies! What a collection. Now you might as well own the ultimate wood bat - PowerWood. :-)
MacDougall & Sons Bat Company
"H2W" Here 2 Win Wood Bat company. Let me know which bat you want for your collection.
Derek from East Coast Bat Company.
Great. With all these bat makers I have a simple question. I'd like to have a custom bat turned. What is the smallest diameter barrel that you would recommend for a 33" bat around 30 ounces? Thanks, best of luck.
P72's have a 2.4 barrel.
David at D-BAT
when i make a 33" around 30 oz i normally have the barrel around 2.5 but you could probably get it out of a 2.4 or so.
I'm thinkn I can get a little more bat speed with that. I assume a P72 is a factory model from D-Bat yeah? Also a thin handle yeah?
NAH, most wood bat companies have a model 72. Ours has a .93 handle and a 2.4 barrel.
