Drop -5 Wooden Skinny Bat for Baseball Contact Training (26"-31", drop -5)
Rock solid maple wooden skinny bat (2" diameter barrel) bat for optimum swing and contact training. That's right: made of solid maple! The other skinny training bats you see out there look like aluminum broomstick handles. They're just too skinny and they're frequently either too light or too heavy for proper swing training. Likewise, the barrel length is usually different than what you're used to.
Using our skinny-barrel training bat that's the same length and slightly heavier than your game bat (but bigger than a broomstick!) is the best choice to train your swing for optimal contact. This helps build the muscles and mechanics that a developing hitter needs to develop a proper swing tat lasts a lifetime.
The 2-inch diameter barrel is skinny enough to make it a challenge to make solid contact, but it's also big enough to know when you've really crushed one. We would recommend choosing a Big Lumber drop -5 skinny barrel training bat that is the same length (or even 1-2 inches longer) than your regular game bat and use it for contact drills in practice and before a game. Our skinny training bat is made from one-piece, hand-split maple just like our game bats, so it's also durable enough for hitting real baseballs in soft toss into the net.
