Full Product Overview
The AP5 professional player wood baseball bat is modeled after a copy of the bat swung by one of the Angels' power hitters. It is considered a relatively well-balanced power hitter's bat.
Similar to Phoenix's NP13 Popular Game Bat model but with a slightly longer 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:
Barrel: 2-1/2" average diameter, pretty balanced with longer hitting area
Handle: 1" thicker diameter
Knob: decent size flare from handle, with enough knob to catch hand
Weight: -2 drop recommended (length - 2 = weight in ounces)
Nice balance and bat speed for a power hitter's bat
Competitor comparison model: AP5
Power hitter willing to give up a tad of barrel diameter for more balance and bat speed.
If like a flared knob, the bigger handed player will like the feel and added durability.
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.
