More About Our DR5S Wood Bat

Details

The DR5S is another wood baseball bat that is the perfect transition bat for the young player moving from a youth bat to a bat with a full size barrel. It's the sister to the DR100, having the same barrel but a handle and knob much more like a metal bat.

At age 12-13, a hitter outgrows his/her K455, K240, or K271 wood youth bat. This is a result of physical size, league requirements and/or the speed of pitching the hitter now faces. Stick with a youth bat and the chance of breaking the bat increases greatly. Go to a full-size barrel too soon and your young hitter starts picking up bad habits (like dropping his/her shoulder and dragging the bat through the strike zone).

Enter the DR5S to save the day! It features a full-size barrel, of same diameter as our pro series BB71 and JK5 wood bats. This gets the hitter used to swinging a bigger barrel wood bat like they will have to swing no later than high school age. It's designed specifically as a transition bat, but still from the same quality wood we use for all our pro series bats. The DR5S wood bat comes in at only 2-3 ounces heavier than our youth bats, but still at least 2 ounces lighter than a pro series bat.

DR5S wood bat specs:
2-1/2" barrel
15/16" handle
-5 drop (length minus drop = weight in ounces)

Typical user:
12-13 year old who likes a metal bat feel as he sets his site on high school baseball
