With so many wood bat options, it can be difficult to select the correct bat. We’re here to help with JustBats Bat Duels. Battling it out this week is the Chandler Pro Maple: CC13 and the SSK Robinson Cano Maple Wood: RC24.
Chandler Bats handcrafts and hand finishes every bat they produce to ensure precision and performance. The CC13 is crafted from professional quality Maple for ultimate durability without sacrificing performance. This professional model features an ink dot test to show the straightness of the wood grain, and the black and natural color scheme provides a classic feel.
Barrel: 2 ⅝”
Length to Weight Ratio: Approximate -3
Keys to Victory: With a non-cupped end, the CC13 is slightly end loaded and is preferred by power hitters. The CC13 has a medium taper with a huge barrel diameter for an extremely responsive sweet spot.
Chandler is so confident about the durability of their bats that they provide a 20-Hit Guarantee. Chandler will issue an identical replacement if a CC13 were to break within the first 20 proper hits.
Facing off against the CC13 is the SSK Robinson Cano Maple Wood: RC24. The RC24 is modeled for four-time Silver Slugger Award winner, Robinson Cano. SSK has been producing bats for over 50 years and knows what it takes to produce tools for elite players.
Length to Weight Ratio: Approximate -2 to -3
Keys to Victory: Designed for power hitters such as Cano, the RC24 has a slightly end loaded feel. Boasting an extended barrel and cupped end, the RC24 has a massive sweet spot. It is crafted from North American Maple, and comes in three color schemes: natural/smoke (pictured), natural/black and wine/natural.
