The X Bats Pro Stock Model 73 is the most popular new style in the Big Leagues and our best selling bat by 2-1 over any other Model. It has a tapered medium sized 15/16" handle flaring to a very large knob with a full power hitter's 2 5/8" barrel. The large knob serves as a counter weight making the bat feel very balanced and lighter than other bats with the same weight. The flared handle to the knob protects the sensitive hamate bone from bruising. This is by far the best balanced wood bat on the market. This is a perfect shape for hitters switching from aluminum to wood as it is both well balanced and easy to control in the hands. Used by power hitters who like the comfort and gap hitters who like the balance and large hitting area.
