I play in a 25 and up all wood bat Adult Baseball league in San Diego, CA and I wanted to get some games in before giving this review. I was a little hesitant on purchasing a wood bat for $199, but I can say now it was well worth it. The craftsmanship is exceptional, better than any of the other big bat companies that I have used. Performance is also amazing. The first couple of games I did get jammed twice with a low to mid 80’s fastball that would have broken my other wood bats I used, this one not so much. I was actually very surprised it did not break, it only resulted in a ground out. Connecting with the sweet spot is pure joy. The quality, performance and a great warranty, this is a must buy for players using wood. Highly recommended. I ended up I adding a 0.5mm Lizard Skin grip to the bat.
My son Hayden Moore 2021 class varsity player, absolutely loves his m14 model. He has hit several balls in bp just as far if not further than his bbcor bat. It definitely outperforms his previous wood which was a good bat.
Great pop, easy and fun to swing. Can put balls into the gap and over fielders heads for cutoff drills. The bat head is a little smaller than some cheaper fungos, but don't let that worry ya. Great product.
Just received the bat and was very impressed, I've been a Baum bat user for many years, the bat seem like it had much more spring than a baum bat, I don't know about the durability but I've had a baum bat break on a 65 mile per hour inside pitch before,(I wasn't hitting) I'm looking forward to my season
Love my Fungomatic, feels and looks great. I recommend this to all coaches.
Best weight balance I have ever felt in a swung bat. Absolutely love that! Great feel on contact, pretty much anywhere on the bat. Using it constantly with that five month warranty.
As an added bonus, it looks so cool!
I bought the M-10 for my son who plays in 13U, and he loves it. After 500 swings in the last month, the bat performance is wonderful. The ball really launches off the bat. Great pop. He likes the balance and his swing looks very smooth. My son is excited to play with it in his upcoming wood bat tournament next month.
Solid quality bat, worth every penny.
Couldn't be any happier with my new bat as well as the customer service from John. John actually cares about his customers, evident in his fast replies through communication, answering questions, and no hesitation to help with anything. The B-52 is a sweet bat with great pop and elite craftsmanship. It was so pretty I didn't even want to get it dirty! John also recently repaired my old 6 year old M-21 - and that came back looking brand new! John is great to work with and is doing great things with his company. I will be a life long MacDougall Batmakers customer and will be referring teammates his way. Thanks again John for the amazing repair and refurbish on my old M-21 and the sweet new B-52 with the vulcan grip (that John installed prior to shipment).
Purchased the M21 for my son last summer (2017) the very first pitch he ever swung at in a live game was a 360' bomb that made that familiar sound only a wood bat can and the swing seemed effortless has continued to perform at a level that is truly amazing for wood. Every one on the team uses this bat in the cage during spring indoor practice and i am not exaggerating when i tell you that this bat has well over 2000-3000 hits just this spring . Truly is the HOLY GRAIL of wood bats and has just as much pop if not more than most alloy /composite bats.high school coach cannot believe how durable this bat is.Keep giving us the GOOD (GREAT) WOOD will be back for more HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ALL.
I recently purchased a M14 for my son who plays high school baseball in New Mexico. NM is one of 6 states that requires its high school teams to use only wood. I was turned on to the MacDougall bat at a hitting camp at the university of NM. My son fell in love with it and since having his own has gained great confidence at the plate the bat not only looks great but performs well. Cant wait for the season to officially start. Truly a great bat with great pop !!!
The bat has great balance and pop!
Don't let your competition know!! OK, to be honest, I guess every competitive ball player should KNOW. This is a great bat!! Hard hitting, pop off this one. Sometimes line drives, lacing directly to outfielders (if I used any other bat, would be a base hit, dropping, lazy, in front of fielders). Am I complaining? NO, absolutely not! Because the ones I hit in the gap, doubles and triples!! So yes, everything I heard about this bat is true. More "sweetspot" coverage (because it is all sweet). A miss is still a hard hit ball. I don't think I'll need to use the 5 month warranty, owned my MacDougall for 3 weeks and so far 7 for 10 in adult Vegas, weekend league play (yes, we play all year round).
Bottom line, I Love It and really don't know if I would buy another brand. I'd rather pay $200 to have a hard hitting, solid bat, then pay $120 4 times in an 18 month period (all relative to how much you play). I have a 2 weekend Vegas tournament coming up in March. I cant wait to drill a few...my only hope, the opossing team players aren't using MacDougalls!!
Bottom line the best wood bat ive ever used period. The B52 is incredibly balanced yet feels perfectly end loaded when you swing. Its hard to describe until you swing it. Ive had others try my bat next to other composite bats and they overwhelmingly think that's the best. Best feel, feels strong anywhere u hit it, and doesn't dent with the seams much at all. Not to mention the craftsmanship alone is well worth the money. I couldn't just get one....i needed two. One for practice one for games. Great product
I gave my son his bat for Christmas, it was hit. He is just now starting up again after fall ball. He has been taking B. P. wIth it. He showed his coach the bat and he said “it’s probably going to crack”. My son fired back “it’s guarenteed for 5 months”. The guy may know how to get youn men into a college program, but he knows very little about laminated wood, haha. My son has a few expensive bats, but the MacDougall is the one he picks up.
I had the chance to hit with a few MacDougall bats last summer, and I was an instant fan. Great feel, really strong and an amazingly smooth sweet spot (360º around the barrel). My wife bought me my own for xmas, and the only downside is that I'll have to ding up the finish once I get back out there next Spring.
Ordered a B52 POWERWOOD.
The bat is a fine tuned weapon for hitters. Exceptional quality and finish.
Explosive pop. Remarkable balance. As a baseball coach, Ive seen players
hit every wood bat on the market, and none compare to MacDougall Bats.
By far the best bat on the market.
Everything that is promised, is delivered. Great bat, great communication, great experience.
Bat has excellent sound to it and great pop and can't wait to to use it in games when the spring season starts. I am looking forward to the durability of the bat and plan to try some of the other MacDougall models in the future. Really a great way to hit with wood with confidence.
Bat swings balanced, great pop, and sounds great. Great looking bat!!!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again... This is the best bat I’ve ever swung. So much pop! Way to go MacDougalll clan!
My son loves his bat. The ball flies off of this beast and oh that sound!!!!
Luke is loving the balance and power he is getting out of his M14. Only bat he is training with so far this off season.
I wish I took a picture of my sons face when he opened up the package and saw the k3 powerwood for the first time. He has used it several times and really likes it. He says his favorite part is how it feels heavy but swings light. Balls not hit on the sweet spot are landing in the outfield as well. This a well made bat that has way less vibration than alloy bats which transfers more energy to the ball.
I'm 6 for 6 in my last 6 at bats , and what a pop , my team mates are asking what is this MacDougal bat ? I tell them that's the bat baby, but you have to hit the ball first ! Thanks MacDougal , you've help me earn my spot in the line up
My son is a sophomore and has used both MacDougall models. The B-series works perfectly for him as he uses it almost exclusively for practice and games. The ball absolutely jumps off this bat's barrel..without question as live a wood barrel as there is. If you haven't used a MacDougall bat, the craftsmanship and aesthetic alone catches your eye. But, honestly, there is no comparison in performance of this wood. If your player can swing the B Series, there's nothing like it!
GREAT HITTING BAT PLAYER FROM OTHER TEAMS IN OUR LEAGUE USE THE BAT
HAS A GREAT SWEET SPOT
HIGHY RECOMMEND THIS BAT
HAS ALOT OF BALL SPEED WHEN COMING OFF THE BAT
We bought this for our son who plays in 16U. He swung a BaumBat over the summer and it fell apart. This bat has more "Pop" and a much better feeling swing. And its the best looking bat you can buy!!! (in our opinion).
I'm not sure why everyone doesn't have one of the MacDougall bats. This was our second. The first was for my son in JR Legion and it was awesome. The latest one purchased was for myself in the over 40 baseball league. The bat pounded the ball two out of three at bats. The one time it doidnt wasn't the bats fault but the guy swinging it.
Awesome twigs MacDougall.
great repair, bat is just like new my son loves it thanks
Ted Williams was wrong. Sometimes it is the arrow. This bat ROCKS.I play in a modified pitch, wood bat league, with pitchers that throw with a lot of movement. Most hits are off the hands or off the end of the bat because of this. This bat is so stiff down to the end that even mis-hits will fly far, where other bats would break. The handle is super strong too, so you can muscle a jam shot for a base hit. I am sold. When you are able to catch it on the sweet spot, watch out!!
Much more durable than maple or birch.
Feels like a piece of steel, but swings light.
Good Job on this bat!!
My 14 year old Loves this bat. I was surprised at the pop it has. Definitely a satisfied customer. Allen N.
Shipped and received quickly. Packaged very well and my 9 yo son has enjoyed hitting with it during BP for 2 weeks now. The sound is great to me hearing the crack of wood instead of composite. We play in a wood bat only tournament at the end of July so he is looking forward to using it that weekend. Thanks for a quality american made bat!
That title is a direct quote from our little league player. He appreciated the way the bat handled and so did several of his teammates. This bat generates sharply hit balls from players which was why our son loved it so much. As a parent I appreciate the solid construction and balance of this bat. We will be a repeat client!

It's hard to believe that this hit turned out to be a bases clearing double in the 2012 NLCS!
