About The 161HD Wood Baseball Bat:
The 161HD offers the same thicker handle (almost 1") and same well-defined knob as the big diameter, long barreled P161 power hitter's bat. But, the 161HD's barrel design is more suited to the extra base hitter versus the pure power guy. He trades barrel diameter and some barrel length for more bat speed.
The barrel diameter is brought down to 2.48" at its max with a faster taper from barrel to handle than the original P161. The result: a really nice, thicker handled, balanced wooden bat with a wide knob to rest your hand on. And with the 161 HD being part of the new HD line, expect some additional durability versus most non-HD bats.
Our HD line of bats are made from the same high quality maple and birch wood as our other standard and pro models. To make them, we pull the billets (tubes of wood from which we craft our bats) that, due to weight, make great wood bats, but only in a limited number of models that have slightly smaller diameter barrels. The tweaked barrel is offset by the wood being denser. Denser wood = a stronger bat and more energy transferred to the ball. Try the 161HD and see why it provides a great combination of pop, durability and value.
All of our HD models ship SAME DAY if ordered by 12p est time as a NATURAL bat, or NEXT DAY if ordered by 12p est time with a MATTE COLORED barrel. ALL HD models come cupped with Natural/No Finish handles.
