Great pop

This is a great bat it's well balanced and has great pop and great durability all for a low price. I actually hit a walkoff with it!

Purchased 4 bats for school ball season. All 4 broke within two weeks. My son was the team's leading hitter. Sent three of them back. Never expected all of them to be replaced because I understand wood bats are gonna break but maybe send back one bat just to appreciate and continue the business relationship. Nothing. Unless you can afford top of the line, don't bother with OH.

Solid Bat, Great Price

    Comments about Old Hickory Bat Co. Old Hickory Rock Maple Black/Natural Wood Baseball Bat:

    Got this as my first wood bat at 13 and was very happy with the purchase. Amazing price for an above average bat. Relatively small sweet spot and a thinner barrel leads to quite a bit of sting on the hands, but bearable. Very balanced. Perfect for somebody getting a wood for the first time who doesnt want to spend 125+ on a bat they might break soon. Best used in the batting cage but gets the job done in the cage. Has lasted over a year now with heavy use - paint is pretty worn on the barrel but no big deal

          Comments about Old Hickory Bat Co. Old Hickory Rock Maple Black/Natural Wood Baseball Bat:

          This bat is really amazing that's well balance and has a great feel to it with a great large sweet spot in the barrel. Have to say it really surprised me when I took my 1st few cuts with it!!! I've been using a Marucci AP5 bat for the last 3 years. The AP5 has great pop a great feel to it as well but man man man the Hickory just feels so much better when I swing it! Going to start buying more Hickory bats but probably not soon, been having my AP5 for 3 years and haven't broke it yet...And to the people who say the bat is bad quality you're wrong lol you may just not know how to use a woody! BTW I play in a wooden bat league facing pitchers who throw from anywhere of 85-100.

                MY SON PLAYS IN A SEMI-PRO LEAGUE OUT BOSTON, MA AND HAS RECENTLY BEEN USING OLD HICKORY BATS. HE LIKES THEM ALOT BECAUSE OF THE BATS DURABILITY AND LESS EXPENSIVE THAN THE MARUCCI BATS HE HAS BEEN USING. WE'LL SEE HOW THIS BATS HOLDS UP WHEN THE 2017 SEASON BEGINS IN MAY.
