About The JK5 Wood Baseball Bat:

With nice pop to slap it in to the gaps, the JK5 wood baseball bat is a great fit for the contact hitter whose job it is to get on base and run. The only difference between it and the BB71 is the transition from the handle in to the knob. The JK5 has a straighter, more traditional transition. Both the BB71 and JK5 are our lightest wood baseball bats. They make a great first choice for the transition up to a high-school age bat.
Like all of our baseball bats, it’s available in Rock Maple or Northern White Ash. Maple is the better choice for the player who tends to get jammed when they mis-hit, taking the ball lower on the barrel. Ash is the better choice for the player who chases those outside pitches, fouling the ball off the barrel end when they mis-hit.

Typical user:

  • Singles/doubles hitter; usually 1, 2, 9-hole batter
  • Youth moving to high school age bat values a lighter bat
  • Player seeking maximum bat speed for more contact

JK5 Wood Bat Stats:

  • Barrel: 2-1/2" slightly weighted barrel for fast swing
  • Handle: 15/16" fairly avg diameter handle, straight in to knob
  • Knob: Enough knob to catch hand
  • Weight: -3 drop (length - 3 = weight)

    Comparable competitor model: 110 with thinner handle

    Great Experience!

    Published by J. Andrews on Monday June 5th 2023 11:56:52 AM

    My first Phoenix bat. I'm more of a line-drive singles, doubles hitter and I prefer a balanced bat. I liked the JK5 because it feels balanced, but with just a hint more of an end-load for a little more pop. The quality of the finished product is exceptional and the bat hits great. I was able to go by their store and swing a bunch of different bat styles to find just what I wanted. Great experience. If you're looking for a top-quality/pro-level bat, you should definitely give Phoenix a look. I'd absolutely buy from them again.

    Batty for this

    I’ve recently embraced my role as a contact hitter and have been on the hunt for a balanced bat to support that decision. This is it. Unlike any other bat, this feels so smooth to swing. My love was locked in when I slightly mishit the ball off my hands and still managed to get a triple to the LC gap. And we didn’t even talk about how good it looks…

    This is my second Phoenix bat. Both have served me well. I play in a mens over 40 league and I broke my "LS" bat on Saturday. I ordered a new birch JK5 on Sunday and payed for the 2 business day turnaround. I was playing with my new customized JK5 the next Saturday. Not only does it look great but it feels great in the cage and on the field. The Phoenix bats website is so helpful in picking the right bat. Reading the "bat stats" really helps in finding a bat tailored to your individual needs.

    Jk5 ash

    Published by James Salzarulo on Monday August 31st 2020 01:01:33 PM

    The bat is beautiful and everything you could want in a bat but it’s a lot heavier and end loaded which we weren’t expecting after reading about the bat. My son is on the smaller side and is a single and double hitter and reading that’s what this bats for we didn’t expect all the weight to be at the end. If it was balanced better it would definitely get 5 stars. I was very close to giving 5 anyway because the bat is beautiful
