Sam Bat Maple Wood Bat: KB1 Natural Adult
Average Customer Review
This is a very good durable balanced bat. As many other customers, I was a bit skeptical when purchasing the bat, especially whether it would be balanced or not. After buying this bat, there was no looking back. Its balanced very well and the flared know allows for a little bit of weight to reside in there rather than the barrel. The barrel size if also especially good in comparison to the handle and knob. It's got some great pop with that natural wood bat "crack" hitters like to hear. If your looking into get a Sam Bat that is balanced, get this. If not, go for a Marucci.
At first may feel a little bit barrel-heavy but its not.
I have this bat in the black/stained handle version. I have used an M9 and Marucci AP5 before this, and this is my favorite. Very nicely balanced, very hard maple, good pop on the sweet spot. I have hit a few off the handle and no breakage yet. I really like this feel of this bat.

The solution was fairly obvious. But the answer led to a pile of work and a crash course on bats. The reading list ranged from "The Physics of Baseball", "The Rules of Major League Baseball", "219 Patents on Baseball Bats" to "The Trees of Canada, Standard Handbook for Civil Engineers".
