Color of the barrel from the middle of the bat to the end of the barrel (except on mini bats and junior trophy bats which are completely finished in a single selected finish).
All ash unfinished barrels, due to the more porous nature of the ash species, include a wipe-on clear flat sealer at no cost. You really won't notice/feel the difference! If you prefer no sealer, just let us know in the checkout process, Step #6.
For maple unfinished bats, the wipe-on sealer is not needed due to the density of the wood. Please advise in the Checkout process, Step 6, if you would prefer sealer anyways (no cost).
