|John MacDougall is a baseball purist that loves the feel and tradition of an all-wood bat. He didn’t want to compromise durability in producing all-wood models, so he headed to his workshop to create a durable bat with no foreign materials like plastic, foam or fiberglass. After a year and a half of testing, John MacDougall finally got the idea to use two different woods. From this, the MacDougall and Sons PowerWood Series was born.|
The handle of these bats is handcrafted right here in the USA from a laminated hickory for added durability and a stiff feel. In the barrel, the lightweight feel of birch helps keep the length to weight ratio down. Due to the stiff handle, the hardened birch barrel is ultra-responsive and transfers energy to the ball more efficiently.
The finishing process is a tedious one, broken into four days. MacDougal and Sons uses their signature compression machine to pre-compress the wood. Next, they inject a urethane finish to ensure the stiffness. After sealing the birch barrel off, the bats get 3 heat-cured coats of marine-grade polyurethane.
MacDougall and Sons is so confident in the handcrafted quality of their bats that they protect you from any manufacturing defects in the bat, such as joint failure, by offering a limited one-year manufacturer’s warranty. Additionally, they offer an industry-leading 4 month breakage warranty to ensure your bat withstands the trials of game play. All bats are BBCOR certified and are legal for high school and collegiate play.
Produced in two models, the M-10 is great for those who love the 110 turn model’s large 1.00” handle and balanced swing weight.
|The M-14 has the great balanced swing weight and stiff feel, but with an ultra-thin handle. Both models come in black and natural and all-natural color schemes.|
Since debuting in 2010, MacDougall and Sons’ unique design has gone through four generations of adjustments. The patented PowerWood models we offer at JustBats today are tougher and higher performing than ever before.
