Sam Bat Maple Wood Bat: KB1 Walker/Black Adult
Average Customer Review
greatest pop i've ever swung, huge sweet spot, thin handle is made perfect, and most of all its weight distrabution is PERFECT
its 119 bucks so its kinda heart breaking if u break it, ive had mine for 6 months and it still hasnt broken, and after awhile the grain starts to show
Let me start by saying I hardly ever review anything but these bats are so well made I felt the need to do so here: They aren't cheap, but like most things in life you get what you pay for, Ive owned and used L. S. TPX Maple, L.S. M9 Maple, Easton Maple and the new Marucci Maple, none of these bats have held up as well as my 2006 KB1, Sam's bats are distinctively crafted as evidenced by the weight and size marked by hand in the barrel cups, No other wood bat in today's market compares in fit or finish to these, Spend a few extra dollars and you wont be disappointed
Still a wood bat so its not indestructible(broke my previous KB1 from 2004),If you get a custom bat it takes 2-5 weeks to make because they're that picky about the Maple blanks they use(more of a testament to quality than a con)

Origins of Sam BatSam Bat grew out of careful research and a thorough knowledge of eastern hardwoods. It also developed from a simple question by Bill MacKenzie, then of the Colorado Rockies: "We're just breaking too many bats. Do you think you could come up with an answer to that?" 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".
