The 72HD wood baseball bat is a great option for the singles and doubles hitter with average to smaller hands who wants to increase bat speed, without sacrificing durability to do so.
Similar to our B72 gap hitter's bat (which was copied from the bat Derek Jeter swung) that features a long barrel and thinner handle, the 72HD features a slightly shorter barrel to quicken up your swing even more. It maintains the thinner handle and traditional knob to catch your bottom hand that Jeter enjoyed. Grip it and rip it past the infielders with the 72HD.
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. Drive it in to the gaps with the 72HD wood baseball bat.
72HD Wood Bat Stats:
Barrel: 2-1/2" balanced, cupped for fast swing
Handle: ~15/16" slightly thinner diameter, fairly straight
