About The R318 Wood Baseball Bat:

Are you a power hitter craving to generate more bat speed? Try the R318 wood baseball bat. It is not top heavy and has a more manageable sized barrel (having a diameter in between that of a R141 and V243) versus a traditional power hitter’s bat. Rip it through the strike zone and still watch it fly when you make contact!

While similar to the NP13, in barrel diameter and that it is a smaller barreled power hitter’s bat, the weight distribution is slightly different. With the R318, the weight is slightly more in the barrel, although not dramatic as it would be versus a big barreled power hitter's wood bat.

In addition, there is one other slight difference between the R318 and NP13, which really is what causes a player to choose one bat over the other—it’s in the transition from handle in to knob. The R318 wood baseball bat has a fairly straight transition. Many of our pros comment on how they like the feel of the bottom of their hand when gripping it. The NP13, by comparison, has a slight flare at the end of the handle going in to the knob.

Typical user:

  • Power hitter who wants to generate more bat speed
  • Extra-baser takes little bit of barrel to do more damage
  • High school power hitter gets more pop from barrel weight

R318 Wood Bat Stats:
Barrel: 2-1/2” very slightly end-weighted & larger, cupped barrel
Handle: 15/16” pretty straight handle
Knob: Enough knob to rest hand on
Weight: -3 drop (length - 3 = weight)

Comparable competitor model: S318

    Great bat

    I took my son into the show room and they spent time with him trying and swinging different bats to recommend the bat that best matches his approach at the plate. He loves this bat and the swing weight give him the needed bat speed for both power and contact hitting.

    My son will only swing Phoenix R318. Loves the feel and weight. Was suggested by one of the bat designers specifically for the type of hitter he is. The folks over the phone are super helpful. The phoenix trend has spread throughout our varsity team. The guys love these bats!!

    Son likes the end loaded and weighted feel, yet able to get bat through the zone quickly.

    Solid bat

    My son used this bat in his first wood bat tournament. Hits great with it, ball jumps off the bat. Tee exit velocity measured is only 1 or 2 mph less than his metal composite. Great bat!

    Great bat

    My son just loves this bat. Now that he broke it in he says it feels good to swing and the ball jumps off his bat. He swings a Meta in school but for all his Travel club tournaments, which are all primarily wood he drives the ball with authority and the ball jumps off the bat very similar to his composite. Highly recommended

    Love this bat. Beautiful. Ordered it with the cupped end and it swings easy with great pop. Exit velo's are almost the same as the Meta Prime! 18yr old son loves the bat. Highly recommend!
