About The BB71 Wood Baseball Bat:
Just starting to swing a full-sized wood bat, coming up from our DR100 youth bat, or just wanting a little more bat speed?
The BB71 is the lightest of the Phoenix wood bats with a length-to-weight difference of -3. Rock maple, northern white ash, or yellow birch, the BB71 professional series wood baseball bat (known in other circles as the C271) is great for the singles and doubles hitter. It features a slightly flared handle transition in to the knob and a barrel that gives this wood bat nice pop to slap it in to the gaps. It’s a really good fit for the prototypical lead-off, second and ninth hitter in the line-up.
- Singles/doubles hitter; typically 1, 2, 9th batter in line-up
- Player taking the first step into a high school/adult bat after swinging a youth bat.
- Wants to insure keeps maximum bat speed while still putting on muscle
If you're not a fan of a flared handle, try our JK5 pro series wood bat—it’s the same barrel as the BB71, with a more traditional transition from the handle into the knob.
