  1. Are the bamboo layers really put shortways across the bat?  I’d expect them to be placed lengthwise to take advantage of the high tensile strength of bamboo.

    Thanks for this article!  I can find nothing else on the web that describes how bamboo bats are made!

  2. Sorry for the confusion, in our video the graphic does look like the layers go across the bat, but they actually go lengthwise up and down the bat.
