As timber Bats get more and more expensive, people are starting to look for lower cost options when they need a quality practice Bat. While they want to save money, they also need to be sure that they're getting something that is high quality. Thanks to the natural wonder known as bamboo, people now have a viable alternative to costly wooden Bats. Bamboo grows quickly with very little tending, meaning that the raw materials for this Bat are very cheap. Cheap does not necessarily equate to "low grade," and this is displayed around the world as bamboo is used to build major structures. Bamboo is tough, it's light and it is amazingly flexible. Thanks to the amazing flex provided by bamboo, the Bat lasts longer than more expensive maple Bats. The light weight of bamboo means that the Bat can be long and wide without being too heavy. This Bat is also BBCOR certified, meaning it is perfectly legal for high school or collegiate play. All in all, this Bat is an excellent, low-cost Batting option.
