    ASH CHARACTERISTICS

    Ash is strongest woods available and also is very flexible. This flexibility makes an ash bat tend to flex rather than break, giving the hitter a larger, more forgiving sweet spot when it comes to breakage. Ash is much lighter than maple which gives the hitter a larger range of large barrel models to choose from. Remember to always hit with the label either up or down so you are using the strongest part of the bat thus minimizing the probability of breaking your bat

     

    MAPLE CHARACTERISTICS

    Maple is a very dense wood with a very tight grain, similar to layers in a laminated product. Some players believe this density makes for a harder and better performance bat. This density does make maple less likely to flake. When a maple bat does break it usually tends to snap in half rather than just splinter like ash. The heavier weight of the maple makes it difficult to make a lightweight large barrel bat. Usually, if a hitter is going to use a maple bat they would use a model with a smaller barrel in order to get the bat weight to the what they desire. Remember to always hit with the label either up or down so you are using the strongest part of the bat thus minimizing the probability of breaking your bat

     

    BIRCH CHARACTERISTICS

    Birch is a wood that has the hardness of maple with the flexibility of ash. Players are finding these bats perform consistently better than other woods and have a significantly lower breakage rate, enhancing hitting performance, lowering overall costs and also adding a measure of safety to the game. Remember to always hit with the label either up or down so you are using the strongest part of the bat thus minimizing the probability of breaking your bat
