|Southbat engineered a new type of wood bat, made from Guayaibi, a wood from a sub-tropical forest in South America. Guayaibi has a tighter, denser and yet more flexible grain than maple and ash bats currently on the market, while still featuring a pure, non-composite wood design.
Southbat has rapidly grown in popularity, gaining approval in the International Baseball Federation and being used by many players in the 2013 World Baseball Classic.
All phases of production take place in South America, from drying and turning the wood billet to painting the bat. All Southbats are turned by hand and hand-finished for guaranteed quality.
Added Benefit: Sustainability
The adult bat comes in three turn models, all constructed from Southbat’s signature Guayaibi wood for performance and durability. All models feature a 30-day manufacturer’s warranty and a black finish.
The SB271 is the best selling model, with a balanced swing weight and medium barrel for a large sweet spot.
Preferred by many top high school and travel ball teams, the SB110 has a 2 ½” barrel, thick 1.00” handle and a long taper. It is very lightweight and well balanced, allowing for total control and increased bat speed.
The SB141 is also well balanced and will have a quick taper to a 7/8" standard handle and a traditional knob.
The Youth Pro: B111 model, unlike the adult model, features Tipa wood, which is durable but very light, allowing them to produce this model with an approximate -7 length to weight ratio and a well balanced swing weight. The Youth Pro is handcrafted and hand finished with a large 2 ½” barrel, standard knob, medium taper and cupped end. The top-of-the-line wood and 30-day warranty makes this bat the perfect training model.
Southbat offers a great product selection that starts with the highest quality Guayaibi wood. The flexibility and durability ensure safety and longevity; and the handcrafted quality ensures performance. Southbats truly have it all. The power is in the wood.
