|Model||Drop Weight*||Handle||Handle-To-Knob||Barrel||Barrel Notes & Weight Distribution||Typical User|
|K240||-7||15/16"||Handle slowly tapers to small flare into knob to put hand on||2 1/4"||Stays thicker, but balanced, as slowly transitions from barrel to handle for extra protection against inside pitch||6-11 YEAR OLD & UNDER new to swinging wood 9-11 YEAR OLD for extra inside pitch protection|
|K455||-8||15/16"||Fairly straight handle slightly flares into knob to catch enough of hand||2 1/4"||Weighted slightly toward the barrel with faster slope from barrel to handle, like a modern bat||6-8 YEAR OLD swinging wood for the 1st time
9-11 YEAR OLD who knows how to hit with wood
|K271||-8||15/16"||Handle tapers slightly in to flared knob, just enough to catch hand||2 1/4"||With a longer barrel than K240 or K455, you get more weight out towards barrel end, offset some by knob||BIG 6-11 YEAR OLD who can handle a youth bat that's top heavy, typically biggest kid for his age|
|DR100||-5||15/16"||Fairly straight handle slightly flares into knob that catches hand||2 1/2"||Same barrel size as recommended 1st high school bat (BB71 or JK5), but well balanced & lighter.||12-13 YEAR OLD getting ready for high school. Wants wood handle/knob feel & weight to keep good swing|
|DR5S||-5||15/16"||Metal bat style: straight handle goes in to full knob to rest hand on||2 1/2"||Same barrel size as pro series BB71 & JK5, but well balanced and lighter.||12-13 YEAR OLD moving to full size barrel but at the right weight for age; likes metal bat design vs DR100|
|DR271||-5||15/16"||Fairly straight handle flares out in to knob to catch hand||2 1/2"||Longer barrel but same diameter as 1st high school bat. More hitting length makes top heavy||BIG 12-13 YEAR OLD can handle end-weight but needs better weight for age before high school|
|* Length of bat less drop weight equals approximate weight, in ounces. Ex: a 30", -8 drop weight bat = 22 ounces.
Heavier bats can be made when requested.
