Pros: Most pop ever! Just bought the bat and hit a homerun in my 1st game! So stoked on the Sam Bat!

Cons: A little expensive. Worth every cent as far as I'm concerned.

Pros: It is balanced, easy to swing and has a larger barrel than most bats of this kind. The wood is harder than the maple Mizuno & Rawlings bats I own. It has a large knob which feels good on bottom hand and takes presure off of that hand on contact. The thin handle feels good and keeps the bat light. I've been in a hardball league 3 years and this is the best of the 5 bats I've used.

Cons: It is more expensive than most bats, but worth it. If you haven't swung a bat with an extra large knob I suggest you do so before buying one. I wouldn't swing anything else but it isn't for everyone and you'll need to findout for yourself.

Is this bat ink dot certified? Asked by Matt

The Sam Bat Maple Wood Baseball Bat: R2K1 (73) Walker/Black Adult is not ink dot certified. Logan Expert

Does this bat have the pro ink dot test? Asked by AJ

This Sam Bat Maple Wood Baseball Bat [R2K1 (73) Walker/Black Adult] will not come with the pro ink-dot test on the taper of the bat. Ben Expert

I see some of the reviews say that this is a thin handled bat. It’s described on your website as 15/16 inch diameter. Isn't that on the thicker side? Asked by Nick

The 15/16" handle on this Sam Bat Maple Wood Baseball Bat [R2K1 (73) Walker/Black Adult] will be referred to as a "thin handle" by most high school to adult aged players. Typically, people start to refer to handles as being thick when they are at the 1" diameter. [Despite having the thin handle diameter, I would note that this bat does feature a rather large knob to it] Ben Expert

The SAM BAT R2K1 is the retail version of the famous bat used by Barry Bonds to hit 762 career home runs and an incredible 73 homeruns in one season. The distinctive flared knob is the result of Sam creating a knob specifically for Barry. It is designed to feel like a baseball in your hand. The R2K1 is a superbly well balanced bat with a big barrel. All SAM BATs are crafted from professional grade hard rock maple for outstanding strength, longevity and performance. Some folks will lead you to believe that wood is wood, and that the brand does not matter. Others will tell you that the bigger the brand, the better the wood, because of their sheer mass of raw materials, and the ability to hand select the finest timber. We will tell you that is only the beginning. All Sam Bat timber is of the highest grade Hard Maple available in North America. Every bat to come out of the mill is made from the top 5% of Hard Maple Prime Grade Timber. That makes a Sam Bat good, but what happens next makes it great. Conventional lathes put a tremendous amount of stress on timber as the wood is being turned. This fatigue weakens the stick before it even sees the ballpark. Sam Bat timber is turned into a baseball bat on a proprietary lathe, custom built for and designed by Sam Holman, the founder of Sam Bat. This exclusive technology puts absolutely no stress on the timber during the production process. Most bats lose at least 4-5 long shots before they leave the factory floor, but Sam Bats keep them. But the real test is at the elite pro level. In just a few years, hundreds of professional players have made the switch to Sam Bat Hard Maple Wood Bats. Sam Bat: The Original Maple Bat Company!
