Made from professional grade Alleghany Ash wood, this bat is identical in quality to the Easton bats used in Major League Baseball. A high quality bat from barrel to knob, the PRO271A features a leather knob label and laser engraved graphics that give it the classiness of a professional wood bat. The 271 turn has a slightly larger knob with a 29/32" flared handle. A long taper leads up to a medium-sized barrel, making this bat ideal for players looking for a bump in bat speed. A cupped end helps the bat to be more balanced and stay true to weight. With a unique Kodiak handle and black barrel finish combination, the PRO271A has quite the distinguishable look. Best of all, Easton's wood bats are all handcrafted in California.
