The Model 2427 has a large barrel with a medium flared handle and conventional knob. This bat’s barrel is based on the C243 while the handle is like a C271. This big 2 5/8” barreled bat end loaded bat has a flared 15/16" handle and small knob. This is an end loaded bat used by a large number of our Major League power hitters. This is a bat for experienced wood bat hitters who have short swings and want the weight at the end of their bat but like the comfort of a flared handle.
