The AP5 professional player wood baseball bat is modeled after the bat swung by Albert Pujols of the Angels. It is considered a relatively well-balanced power hitter's bat.
Similar to Phoenix's NP13 Popular Game Bat model but with a slightly bigger barrel, the AP5 wood bat transitions in to a medium diameter handle.
Coupled with a moderate flare from the AP5's handle in to the knob (similar to that on our BB71), you get some reasonable balance throughout this wooden bat.
AP5 wood bat stats:
2-9/16" diameter barrel
-2 drop (length - drop = weight in ounces)
Power hitter who is willing to give up a tad of barrel diameter in exchange for more balance and additional bat speed.
Bigger handed player will like the feel and the additional durability that comes with this design
Due to the more limited availability of the wood billets (the tubes of wood we make bats from) to make this bat, we are unable to offer the Phoenix Money Back Guarantee on the AP5 wooden bat.
No matter which Phoenix wood baseball bat you go with, our belief is simple: every player, at every level...not just our pros...deserves a quality wood bat.
