Description

The Brett Brothers entered the bat business with the goal of ensuring that coaches at all levels of ballplayers have access to superior quality composite wood bats that are cost effective. Consistency and durability were the primary factors when establishing their bat designs. The Brett Brothers have been involved in the game their entire lives, through Bobby and John's Minor League careers to the Professional careers of Ken and George. The Brett Brothers know the game. Even today, it's an important part of their lives, with each brother being involved in their own way. George, who is still a part of the Kansas City Royals Organization and a hometown hero here in Kansas City, was a career .305 hitter with 3 Batting Titles, a 1985 World Series Ring and an induction to the Hall of Fame in 1999 to round out his 21 year career in Kansas City. Not only did he prove to be a consistent hitter he showed that he had the knowledge to succeed. The Brett Brothers understood that having reliable wood was an important component. This is why they implemented their 3-piece laminating system along with their patented BOA reinforcement handle. The all new Thunder model is uniquely designed with a bamboo core and a maple barrel.

SAY-HEY

Pros: Great bat has lots of pop. Use it in senior league and a lot of my team use it in place of their bat. They say the power it gives almost makes other think it is a metal bat. Plan to purchase another for me the others can use my older one. I am not muscular but since using this bat I am hitting the ball as far as the big guys. Best bat I ever had. It is not the team bat.

Drew

Pros: None

Cons: Wanted to write a review and see what others thought. I bought this bat based on the reviews, and it turned out to be awful. Lots of sting in the handle, even when making solid contact. My team and I tried using it and could barely get the ball out of the infield. NO POP whatsoever. Based on the other reviews I assume it's defective and will be returning it. Should I by another one assuming my current is defective? Does anyone have any thoughts or advice? Does the wood have to loosen up at all?

Pros: Great bat... I bought this bat because I wanted a bat for myself and that I could feel comfortable with. You know these bats just fit, sure they may sting a little but with a lil love and care and some wrap the sting just falls away...and not to mention everyone loves a new bat, since they want to be the first to splinter it! These things take a beating as well as deliver good solid hits all around even off the handle..whoops... Thanks and keep up the great work fellas!

Six bat review Keith Other

Pros: We purchased 6 (3 different sizes) of these bats for our co-ed adult slow pitch softball league, where everyone had to use one of the provided bats. Most players really enjoyed using them, and the sound of a wooden bat. The bat provided a good pop, and skilled players could easily put it over a 225 fence with ease. Was nice to be able to provide 3 different sized bats for the players.

Cons: 2 of the 6 bats broke by the end of the season, right at the top of the handle. Many of the inexperienced players complained about the stinging. When playing in bad weather, the bats where slippery and ended up flying everywhere. Next season we will be sure to put grips on the bats.

Questions and Answers (30)

Have a question about the Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SST500 Black? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

Does the fiberglass reinforced handle actually decrease the chances of breaking compared to other wood bats? I'm a little too cautious when it comes to wood bats.
JoeyJ
The idea behind the fiberglass technology is to decrease the chances of the bat breaking, or prolonging the lifespan of the bat. However, when hitting with wood bats there is always the chance of a mishit which would result in the breaking or cracking of the bat.
Nicky6
What side of the bat is the sweet spot on
showtime54
The grains will be tightest and strongest directly above or below the "Thunder" imprint on the barrel.
Jeff
is this a 2 1/2 inch barrel or a 2 1/4 inch?
Austin
This particular model has a 2 1/4 Inch barrel size in diameter.
Brett
Looking for a bat for a wooden bat tournament. With the fiberglass on the handle, does this qualify as a wood bat?
Bull
Yes, the Thunders are considered wood bats. They are very popular bats.
Mark

No, the only difference is the color.
Kris

Geebee
The Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Softball Bat: SST500 Yellow Slow Pitch With FREE Energy Towel is Approved for Play in ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA, and ISF. The other three Brett Bros. Thunder wood bats are only approved for ASA Play.
Zach
IS THIS LEGAL FOR HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL BECAUSE OF THE WEIGHT DIFFERENTIAL?
STEVE
The Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Softball Bat: SST500 Black Slow Pitch is not a baseball bat. Since this is a softball bat, it will not be legal for high school baseball play.
Jennifer
What is the barrel diameter for this bat?
Ryan2015
The Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Softball Bat has a 2 1/4 inch barrel.
Kara
What is the difference in power from wood to composite? How long do wood bats last?
frankie
There is always a threat with any wood bats that they could break. The Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Softball Bat does have a Bamboo core and a Maple barrel with the Patented "Boa" Fiberglass Reinforcement Handle. This bat should be more durable for a wood bat. If you're comparing the power from this Brett Bros. Thunder/Maple Wood Softball Bat to that of a composite material bat you would typically see better results right out of the wrapper. A composite barrel bat will out perform this bat in the long run as it get more broken in. The composite barrel bats tend to have a period of break-in of anywhere from 100-250 swings. While this Brett Bros. will show results in warm or cold weather from day one. One customer review says this bat has a "Huge sweet spot."
Brandon
What is the difference between this bat and the Thunder 5?
Rob
The Brett Bros. Thunder 5 Bamboo/Maple Wood Softball Bat: SBT34W is simply a newer version of the regular Thunder bats and the only difference is a different paint job/finish.
Tyler
What is your warranty for this bat?
Lazaro47
Due to the nature of wood, most wood bats do not come with a warranty, including the Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Softball Bat: SST500 Black Slow Pitch.
Kevin
The bat is stamped ASA 2004 approved. Does that still apply in 2013, or is there new criteria?
Ken C
Slow pitch bats, like the Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Softball Bat: SST500, that feature the ASA 2004 certification are currently still approved for ASA play. Bats with the new marks are being produced, but both marks are valid for ASA Slow Pitch leagues.
Mac
Does it say official softball on it ?
chooch
The Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Softball Bat: SST500 Black Slow Pitch bats do have "Official Softball" listed on their barrels as well as the 2004 ASA certification mark.
Mac
How does this bat work with the new .52 COR 300 balls that ASA has now gone to?
K Dizz
The higher COR provides more of a "bouncy" feel off the bat. The Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Softball Bat (SST500) would hit the balls about the same, but the balls wouldn't carry as well as the higher compression balls.
Justin R.
Since this is a wood bat does it have a tendency to break like the old wooden bats?
Dot
The Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Softball Bat features a BOA fiberglass-reinforced handle which makes it much more durable than a traditional wood bat.
Bobby
How does this bat perform with soft-softballs?
Dot
With the soft-softballs, sometimes it is better to use a wood bat. The Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Softball Bat (SST500 Black Slow Pitch) would be a great option. The high quality bamboo and maple materials help provide excellent pop and durability.
Justin R.
Does this bat carry any warranty
nijeme
The Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/ Maple (SST500) does not come with a manufacturers warranty.
Zach
I am looking for a good bat to use in a commercial batting cage that uses the dimpled balls, will this bat work for that?
mellie
Yes, the Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SST500) Black would be good the batting cages that use those dimpled balls.
Cooper
Does this bat get any hotter? Does it break-in and improve at all?
Woody
Given the material that the Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SST500) is made of, it would not benefit from a break-in process and will be as hot as you will see out of the wrapper.
Patrick
I am new to wood bats. I am 5 foot 7 and weigh 170 pounds. I am pretty muscular. What length and weight would I want?
softballa
Based on height and weight, I would probably recommend the 33 inch size of the Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SST500).
Patrick
Would this bat be any good for fastpitch softball (full windmill)?
gugu
The Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SST500) is more intended for slow pitch play and would probably be more likely to break facing higher pitching speeds.
Patrick
I have a 2004 Blue Thunder Maple Brett Bros softball bat. I was told it has bamboo in it and it is illegal for me to use in our senior league softball. It says "Maple" on it twice, is there another place the bamboo is integrated into it and not labeled?
Rex
The Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SST500) has a bamboo core. If you look in the end of the bat you can see the square area where the bamboo is running down the center of the bat. The bamboo material is also listed in the product title and product features.

Brett Bros. is not out of business but there is limited options on their current bat lineup. There should be more options of their bats coming into the fold later this year (this is what we are anticipating).

Bob
The Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SST500 Black will feature the ASA stamp but there is no BPF stamp on the bat.
Cameron
I am not having any luck with this bat is it me or the bat?
Steve
The Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SST500 Black is a hybrid of bamboo and maple. It will create a very hard and durable model. Some players benefit more from a softer bat like birch or ash, and that may be worth exploring if you are having issues.
Tyler

The Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SST500 Black would be a great option for 55 and over. The Pro Cupped end will allow for a great feel in the swing.

About the Brand

The Brett Brothers “entered the bat business with the goal of ensuring that coaches at all levels of baseball have access to superior quality composite wood bats that are cost effective." The Brett Brothers have been involved in baseball their entire lives. We are four brothers and all of us played professional ball at one time. Bobby and John played in the Minor Leagues, and Ken and George together put in 31 years in the Major Leagues.

Not only did we play baseball because we were good, we truly loved the game. Even today we closely follow the sport. George still works for the Kansas City Royals. Ken has been a broadcaster for 11 years with Fox. Bobby runs our professional franchises here in Spokane, the baseball Indians and the hockey Chiefs. The oldest brother John is a frequent visitor here to see his brothers and watch our teams play.

Like most baseball families, it all started in a small Southern California town call El Segundo. The boys are all about two years apart, and we had some kind of sporting event about every night. I remember most of our family meals were hot dogs, and everything was on the fly. Our parents were always there to cheer for us, and our lives were generally very happy.

Ken was the first to sign a pro contract at age 17. He was the fourth player taken in the annual draft by the Boston Red Sox. When their scout Joe Stephenson came to sign him, our dad said, "the one you really want is the skinny, barefooted one, George." George in 1966 was all of 12 years old.

If you move up the clock to 1971, George was a senior, and Joe Stephenson desperately wanted him to be Boston's #1 pick. The Red Sox said no, and the Kansas City Royals took George in round #2. The rest is history. Ken played 11 years for numerous teams. George turned out to be exactly the player our late father envisioned. He was a 3-time winner of the Batting Title in three different decades. He was very consistent, and always played the game very hard. He was the greatest Royal, and still makes his home in Kansas City. In the summer of 1999, he was awarded Baseball's highest award, election to the Hall Of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.

In the spring of 1998, the Tridiamond Bat Company needed a place to "try out" their new baseball bats. Because the Bretts owned the only local professional team, an association was formed. When Tridiamond got both NCAA and Major League approval to sell bats, they needed some baseball help. At this time we bought into the company and changed the name to Brett Bats.
