The 13HD wood baseball bat will be appreciated by the power hitter who likes a lot of whip . While the handle matches the average handle diameter of the TP13 pro player model and of the NP13, the barrel diameter is just a tad smaller. This allows us to add some additional durability to this model. With a long barrel similar to the TP13, and thus a similar larger sweet spot, this bat comes in at a -2 drop weight. Drive it past the outfielders and out of the park with your 13HD wood baseball bat.
All HD wooden bat models are crafted from the same high quality maple and birch woods as our other standard and pro wood bat models. To gain extra durability without sacrificing pop, the tweaked barrel is offset by the wood being denser (ie. harder). Denser wood equals a stronger bat and more energy transferred to the ball. To insure proper weight (critical to keep up a great swing), these bats have to come unfinished. Bottom line: the HD series, a Phoenix Bats original, represents a tremendous value: in price, in pop, and in durability.
13HD Wood Bat Stats:
Barrel: 2-3/8" slightly larger, long barrel give barrel weight. Cupped
Handle: 15/16" avg size. Fast transition from barrel ends in flare out at very end
