About The RD4 Wood Baseball Bat:
The RD4 is the official custom model of Astros prospect & Columbus, Ohio native Ronnie Dawson. Ronnie worked with our bat designer to dial in on a specific feel. After trying our AP5 and our R318, the idea was born to merge the two and the RD4 was generated. This is a perfect model for players who seek a slight barrel load with a thicker, slightly flared handle. This model helps to generate bat speed, while still maintaining a nice balanced feel to promote bat control.
Comparable model: R318 with the moderately flared knob of an AP5
- Power hitter seeking a little less end weight and more bat speed
- Extra base hitter who is looking for more barrel than a F110 or R141
- Experienced wood bat player looking for a versatile bat in the middle of the line-up
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.
