It's not Rocket Science, but it's close.
PowerWood Technology goes into every bat we make. But what goes into PowerWood Technology? High- tolerance joinery, true hickory and birch hardwoods, plus a special laminating process, to name a few. All combine to create a bat that will never shatter or splinter - something other all-wood bats can't do. No foreign materials like plastic, foam, metal or fiberglass. We stay true to the Baseball Tradition.
The proof is in the PowerWood.
The Baseball Research Center put the PowerWood to the test. In case you think our bats look "flexible" in these videos, rest assured they are not. Thats what happens when you hit a bat on the end of the barrel at 198 mph. And remember, the regular "pro model" wood bats broke a LONG time before they got to this point.
Test speed protocol: 170 mph 2" from the end of the barrel equivalent to Albert Pujols taking a full cut at a 93 mph fastball) The PowerWood goes the first 22 hits without breaking. In fact, nothing happened until the testers increased the speed to 198 mph, when a slight fracture appeared in the barrel. The bat was still usable. The pro-model comparison bat only took seven hits at 165 mph before the handle split open.
Test speed protocol: 125 mph at the label (bat speed is slower near the hands) After 50 hits, the testers ramped the speed up to 163 mph (40 mph faster than it would see in the Majors). Nothing happened, even after 89 hits. The pro-model comparison bat only survived eight hits at 125 mph.
- Ivory hickory handle and hardened birch barrel form a bat that lasts up to 10 times longer than other all-wood bats
- Patent-pending laminated design strengthens and stiffens the hardwoods to resist breaking
- PowerWood bats are constructed around a balance point that's over an inch closer to the handle, so the bat feels incredibly balanced.
