Types of 271 Baseball Wood Bats and Their Benefits

by Carolina Johnson Marketing Specialist

From maple to ash, there are several types of wood bats available for baseball players. Knowing the benefits of each type of 271 baseball wood bat can help you choose the perfect one for your game, whether you're a power hitter looking for maximum distance or someone who wants a big sweet spot.

·         Spalt Maple Bats

Spalt maple bats are for those who prefer lighter wood bats. These models have a wider sweet spot and great pop, making them ideal for power hitters looking to hit the ball farther. Because spalted maple is softer than other types of wood, these bats also tend to be more durable over time.

·         Birch Bats

Birch bats are also a type of wood used in 271 baseball wood bats. Made from durable and high-density birch, these bats provide a tremendous trampoline effect. With a slightly smaller sweet spot than spalted maple, these bats are perfect for those with an eye for detail when choosing the right bat. The denser the wood, the more power it provides to your swing, and birch is no exception!

·         Ash Bats

Ash bats are among the most popular type of 271 baseball wood bats, known for their flexibility and lightweight feel. Although they are made from lighter wood than others, this doesn’t mean that they lack power. Contrary to what many believe, ash bats can actually give you more distance because of the airplane-like “cut wings” design. By taking off some length from the barrel and adding weight towards the end cap and handle area you gain more bat speed which allows for faster swing due to its lightweight characteristics.

·         Composite Wood Baseball Bats

Composite wood baseball bats are a hybrid of wooden bats mixed with composite materials. They offer the power of an alloy bat while maintaining the sweet spot and control of wood. The advanced technology in these bats allows them to reach their peak performance right away, unlike traditional BBCOR-approved bats that tend to require more break-in time before they can reach maximum effectiveness. The added bonus with composite wood baseball bats is that they are extremely resistant to warping and flaking which makes them perfect for everyday training purposes.

·         Professional Grade 271 Wood Bats

Professional Grade 271 wood bats are used by some of the most elite players in the game. Constructed from pro-quality hardwood, these bats allow for maximum power transfer from the barrel to the sweet spot with each swing. The long barrel design combined with their light weight makes them perfect for fielding as well. With slightly more forgiving sweet spots than other bat materials, professional grade 271 baseball wood bats provide hitters with complete control and accuracy at the plate.
