Great Feel (College Competitive Summer League) Sal Rodriguez player

Pros: Has a nice feel. Personally I like a little more barrel weight and this bat is rather balanced, especially since it has a 243 turn. Nice bat, great feel and a nice pop. I feel confident with it in the box.

Cons: Took a few games to adjust to the more balanced feel for the turn style. After the adjustment it was beautiful.

Pros: this bat has helped my game tremendously, the pop is insane, its slightly top heavy which i like being a middle of the order guy, and the crack of the bat on contact is thundering! i hit better with this bat than i do my bbcor!

Cons: the finnish leaves ball marks all over the barrell but that doesnt effect the production of the bat

Fantastic Bat SamZ coach

Pros: -Made to Order -Pro Stock Wood not 2nd tier -Well Balanced feel. Does not feel end loaded The J143M is the actual model used by Mike Trout. Just look at the pics of his bats pre the Mike Trout signature model. The MT signature model is not actually the spec of Trouts bat... the J143M is.

Cons: none at this time

Questions and Answers (14)

Have a question about the Old Hickory Bat Co. Custom Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat: J143M Natural Adult? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

Is this bat nicely balanced or barrel heavy?
Jay
If you're comparing wood bats to alloy or composite bats, they're all going to have a slightly end-loaded feel. That is because wood is a different consistency and weight distribution is not as easily manipulated as non-wood bats. The J143M does have a long barrel and will feel fairly end-loaded.
TJ
Does this bat have a whitewash finish similar to the Marucci vw10?
Adam
This has a natural finish and will not have the whitewash look as the VW10.
KG
Does this bat have a pro ink dot on the handle?
Rodger
Yes, the J143M has the ink dot on the handle.
Kara
Is this high school approved?
Tyler915
Yes. This bat is High School approved. This bat has a medium barrel,short taper and a thin handle.
Kris
Is this bat just as durable as the Sam Bat or Marucci?
rich123
Yes, the Old Hickory Bat Co. Custom Pro Maple Wood Bat is very durable just like the Sam Bat or Marucci bats.
Kara
When will this bat be back in stock?
nick
We will be receiving more of the Old Hickory Bat Co. Custom Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat (J143M Natural Adult) but we do not have an exact date as to when. We should be getting some within the next 2-3 weeks but like I said, we do not have an exact date.
Cooper
Which bat is more balanced, the Old Hickory MT27M or the Old Hickory J143M?
ballislife1
Both the Old Hickory Bat Co. Custom Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat (J143M) and the Old Hickory Bat Co. Mike Trout Maple Wood Baseball Bat (MT27M) feature a 243 turn, which makes both bats feature the same end loaded feel. Any bat that features a 271 or a 110 turn model will be more balanced than those two options.
Tessa
Is this bat closer to a drop 3 or drop 2? It says it is approximately in between but is it made to be a drop 2 or 3?
Jack
The Old Hickory Bat Co. Custom Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat (J143M Natural Adult) is a natural wood bat. When making a bat out of natural materials they cannot guarantee an exact weight, all I can suggest is that it will be between a drop.
Frankie
How balanced is the J143M and who's pro model is it?
ozzie
The Old Hickory Bat Co. Custom Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat (J143M) is more of an end-loaded design rather than being balanced. It may be used by pro players but is not a signature model of a specific player.
Patrick
What is the difference between this bat and the MT27M?
doc
Overall, this J143M Natural Adult and the MT27M bats are going to be pretty similar as both bats are made very close to the 243 turning model. Both bats feature pretty thin handles and longer barrel lengths. The biggest difference will be the cosmetics on each bat.
Ben
What is the difference between this bat and the Trout model?
Matthew
The Old Hickory Bat Co. Custom Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat: J143M Natural Adult is going to feature a 243 turn model while the Old Hickory Bat Co. Mike Trout Maple Wood Baseball Bat: MT27M Adult is cut to different specifications than any standard turn model. However, it is going to be very similar to a 243 so while there are minor differences they will feature a similar design and be very comparable bats.
Carter
I recently purchased this bat and I have always been taught to hit label up with a wood bat but I have also heard that you do not hit with the side of the barrel where the wood begins to circle. My predicament is that if I am hitting with label facing up then the ball will hit the side of the bat where the wood is beginning to circle and where the wood grains are straight that is where the label is at. I also have the Joeybats Marucci and it is the same deal so how should I position the bat in order to avoid breaking it?
Trae
It is best to hit with the label on the Old Hickory Bat Co. Custom Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat: J143M Natural Adult facing either up or down to the plate. The strongest part of the wood grain will be on the label side and the opposite side of the label.
Cameron
Does Old Hickory do some type of steel burnishing, like Tucci, or bone rubbing, like Marucci, to add that little bit of extra durability and pop?
Ike
Unfortunately we are not 100% sure if the Old Hickory Bat Co. Custom Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat: J143M Natural Adult is bone rubbed. Most pro cut models would be but, to confirm, we would recommend contacting Old Hickory directly.
Cameron
Is this bat natural or white color?
Jairo
The Old Hickory Bat Co. Custom Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat: J143M Natural Adult is a natural wood color.
