Maple is the hardest, most dense wood, and is typically the preferred wood of experienced hitters since it isn't very forgiving on off-center hits and swings a little heavier than the other two woods. Ash offers the most flex, and can handle more hits off the end or near the handle than maple before breaking, and is lighter to swing making ash a better choice for a player who is just beginning to swing wood. Birch offers hardness closer to that of maple, while having flex similar to ash making it a great option for intermediate wood bat hitters.
