About The K271 Youth Wood Baseball Bat:
The K271 is a youth wood bat that is great for the young power hitter. While still meeting Little League 1.10 rules, it features a longer barrel and a medium flared knob for the bigger kid.
Versus the K455 youth wood bat, the K271 features a noticeably longer barrel to give more space to hit, providing some additional durability for the player who tends to mash...but maybe not always on the sweet spot . But, with a longer barrel comes more weight out towards the barrel end of the bat, so it really is appropriate primarily for the bigger kid in the age group who can handle a little extra barrel weight. The knob and handle, featuring a moderate flare, was borrowed from our BB71 pro series baseball bat.
Per Little League rule 1.10, bats for Little League (majors) and below, shall be a smooth, rounded stick and made of wood or of material tested and proved acceptable to Little League standards. It shall not be more than 33 inches in length, not be more than two and one-quarter inches in diameter, and if wood, not less than fifteen-sixteenth inches in diameter (7/8 inch for bats less than 30 inches) at its smallest part.
In regard to the new USA Baseball bat standard: solid, one-piece wood bats that adhere to Little League’s regulations will be allowed for play with or without the USA Baseball mark (see Rule 27).
