The number of wood bat companies continues to increase year after year. Everyone wants to jump on the bandwagon taking advantage of the wood bat trend sweeping the country. There are more choices than ever when it comes to selecting a wood bat. Each company claims to be making the best bat on the market today. So how do you decide which company will supply you with one of your most important tools as a player? The large established companies produce massive quantities of bats, and spend thousands upon thousands of dollars advertising their product. Small companies seem to come and go at an alarming rate. Here today...Gone tomorrow. As a player and owner, my advice to you is to pick a small company that has been in the business for several years. Most of us have a much lower overhead, and consistently produce quality bats at an affordable price. Do your homework, and I'm confident you will give us a try.
It’s not easy to make a great baseball bat. A tremendous amount of knowledge about the properties of wood is crucial to success. Understanding the nuances of bat shapes and weights is another key ingredient that simply cannot be understated. Finally, you must have the ability to obtain the best wood on the planet. You not only need the equipment, skill, and wood supply to produce top of the line bats, but you must be willing to do so consistently. What separates the truly outstanding bat manufacturers from the rest, is the willingness to discard a tremendous amount of lumber in order to maintain outstanding quality in each and every bat produced. We here at Pro Bats have made that commitment. Without this commitment to excellence, we could never guarantee our bats to within ½ ounce, and we certainly could not implement our early breakage warranty. Wood bat companies pop up almost every week. Most struggle with consistently excellent quality because they do not discard all the lumber that is not suitable for making a high quality bat. On average, forty five to fifty percent of the lumber a company receives cannot make a pro quality bat. A portion of the wood billets on a pallet have flaws that will lead to early breakage and poor performance. Another portion are just too heavy. Many companies cannot afford to throw it out. They over dry the wood to get the weight down, and produce bats that have questionable grain. The result is an inferior bat at a low price. The one thing I have learned in this business is that you get what you pay for. We only have one grade of lumber and that is Pro Stock. Each and every bat is made of the finest wood available. This business is all about the wood. We have been in the business for over fifteen years, and after much experimenting, we believe we start our manufacturing process with the best wood money can buy. I honestly believe we make the best bat on the market for the money. Pro quality at an affordable price.
The incredible durability of our bats has proven to be one of our best selling points. Read some of the testimonials on this site to get a feel for the quality we put into each and every bat. We know that you can buy a less expensive bat, but we honestly believe that when it comes to being cost effective over the long haul, we provide the best bang for the buck on the market today.
Nope...Never... We only put our label on the best bats money can buy. Our pros and amateurs swing exactly the same bats. From the highest level of baseball to youth leagues, exactly the same quality. That's the Pro Bats guarantee.
Pro Bats has been in business for over fifteen years. I formed the company with a promise to myself that I would look at all aspects of the business through the eyes of a player. This was not much of a stretch for me since I have played organized baseball throughout my youth and adult life. I wanted to treat my customers exactly the way I would expect to be treated. Throughout our fifteen years of existence, I have never wavered from that philosophy. The personal touch each and every customer gets from the moment they make contact with our company is one of the big Pro Bats advantages. I personally handle each and every transaction. It does not end when you receive your bat. In fact that is just the beginning of what I hope will be a long lasting relationship.
