The circular bat is the obvious choice for beginners and leisure athletes. Bale-shaped bats often have the balance in the centre of the bat or closer to the grip. The sweet spot is quite big and located in the centre of the bat. You get more control with this type of bat and a little less speed – it’s definitely the preferred bat if you’re a beginner or a leisure athlete.
The drop-shaped bat is designed for leisure athletes, experienced and advanced players. The sweet spot is placed a bit higher up on the bat. The properties are a mixture of circular and diamond shaped.
The diamond-shaped bat is best suited for experienced players, which typically have a higher balance point. The sweet spot is smaller and situated high up on the bat, allowing for increased speed, but also less control, which is why the diamond-shaped bat was developed for advanced players.
We also offer a junior bat, which is both smaller and lighter and therefore recommended for children. The bat comes in two sizes. One recommended for children ages 3-7 years and one for ages 8-12 years – depending on when they’re able to handle adult sized bats.
