Expert Review

Any "best wood bat" list would not be complete without a maple bat near the top of the pecking order. Maple bats are preferred by many power hitters for its increased hardness, compared to ash. This results in some increased pop in the swing, for hitters that are strong enough to use a bat that swings a little heavier, due to increased wood density. As mentioned previously in the article, you can't go wrong with a Louisville Slugger, and this top of the line maple model will assuredly provide the pop you are looking for. There is a caveat -- Maple is known to have a smaller sweet spot, so make sure you're hitting the ball square.Rating: 4.25/5
