More About Our K240 Wood Bat


The K240 is a well balanced, properly weighted, wood youth bat that is great for teaching a young player how to hit with wood. Plus it meets specs for game use!

Unlike the K455, the K240 features a slow transition from the barrel in to the handle. This provides additional thickness for those younger players who tend to get jammed, taking the ball on the lower part of the barrel towards the decal. This makes it perfect for the baseball player who is still trying to master hitting the sweet spot or is new to wood bats. It's also Phoenix's recommendation for the 10-11 year old playing in his first wood bat tournament.

K240 Wood Bat Stats:
2-1/4" very balanced barrel
15/16" slightly tapered handle
-7 drop (length - drop = weight in ounces. Ex: 30" bat = 23 oz)
Maple species to balance durability and swingability, insuring great swing form

Typical user:
Any 5-11 year old youth new to swinging a wood bat or who needs more miss-hit forgiveness
Player who tends to mishit further down the barrel towards the handle
10-11 year old who needs more durability in wood bat tourneys and games

Will your child be able to handle a wood bat that has a -7 drop weight (length minus drop weight = bat weight in ounces)?
Definitely!!! Remember, metal bats have become so light that they do not accurately represent what weight is appropriate for a youth to learn how to hit effectively. A properly weighted youth bat levels the hitter's swing, enabling the youth to drive the ball. Goodbye golf-like, low-to-high, metal bat pop-fly swing, hello baseballs headed to the gaps and beyond.
