B45 Pro Select B271 Birch Wood Baseball Bat: B271PS
B45 has created their birch rendition of the classic 271 wood bat turn model! Don't miss out on it!
The 271 is probably the most famous wood bat turn model out on the market. Scores of amateur and professional players reach for a 271 style of wood bat when they head to the plate.
A 271 bat's popularity amongst hitters can be attributed to the fact that it incorporates features that both contact and power hitters enjoy. The barrel diameter and barrel length will be smaller than what you would typically see on a true power hitter type of wood bat. However, when compared to a bonafide contact hitter bat, this bat's barrel does take on a little more shape (as opposed to the handle just tapering straight out from the handle to the end of the bat; like contact hitter bats will sometimes do).
When it comes to the handle, this B271 won't be as thin as a true power hitter bat, but it won't be extremely thick like some contact hitter bats either. The handle also has a flared knob to it that gives it a professional look & feel (many pro-level players like a flared knob). As well, this writer would comment that B45's B271 bat has a less pronounced flare on its knob when compared to other companies' 271 styles of wood bats.
Lastly, B45 crafts the bat from birchwood. Due to that birch material, it will display some barrel hardness like maple, but still flex a little bit between the handle and barrel at contact (like the ash bats). Birch bats present the middle ground between the ash and maple wood bats.
B45 extends a generous Thirty (30) Day warranty on this high-quality wood baseball bat. If you purchase this bat from JustBats and it breaks down on you within 30 days from the purchase date, please let the Bat Experts from JustBats know. The Bat Experts will be able to get you the info to make sure you can get in contact with B45 and arrange to get a replacement bat!

About the Brand
Back in 2004, forest engineers from Québec City, Canada, believed that Yellow Birch would make exceptional baseball bats. They joined their knowledge with the experience of professional baseball players to handcraft the first ever bat made out of Yellow Birch, wood that possesses extraordinary physical characteristics.
Laboratory and game situation testing then proved that B45 Yellow Birch bats were giving baseball players a good swinging feeling and broke significantly less than other types of bats. Hard like maple and flexible as ash, B45 bats have significantly lower breakage rate enhancing hitting performance, lowering overall cost, and adding a measure of safety to the game.
Still based in Québec City, Canada, B45 is more than ever known for its quality and innovation in the wood baseball bat industry. Through years of collaboration among our staff's forest engineers and professional players, B45 offers the finest bats made throughout North America and the world.
Approved for professional play since almost a decade, B45 Yellow Birch bats are still proudly handcrafted by former pro players who know the ins and outs of the game and the importance of swinging a quality bat. Whether you are playing in the Show or your Sunday morning league, our bat makers will handcraft your bat with the same passion and precision that will end up being the right product for you.
In 2015, B45 moved to a new ownership group led by former Major League pitcher Eric Gagné. With the help of new brand ambassadors like All-Star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, All-Star catcher Jonathan Lucroy, and young pitcher Phillippe Aumont, the company is growing faster than ever, on both professional and amateur levels. Everyone in the company is driven by a renewed energy and so are our new Believers.
