Great Bat, Great Feel

We decided we needed to get a wood bat for our son since his club team was going to be registering for some wood bat tournaments as well as for training purposes. When looking into what bats are out there and best quality we happed to come across MacDougall Bats. We were impressed with their manufacturing process and materials used to make such a durable and great performing bat. Needless to say, the bat looks and feels as good as we had hoped. Looking back, I regret going with the painted barrel and should have selected the natural look. But that is more aesthetics and has nothing to do with performance. My son loves the feel of the bat and the handle. We definitely plan on getting another bat in the spring.

Thank you very much Jason. We hope Jake has lots of fun (and hits) with it!

Awesome!!

This bat is absolutely incredible! My son loves it! He’s a big kid at 16 years old. 6’1 200lbs. And hitting bombs! Definitely will purchase an end loaded bat to go with current m series. Service is fantastic and design precise! Can’t believe a warranty on a wood! Fantastic!

Thanks Ritchie! Glad to hear he's putting it to good use. Sounds like he *could* use a 'Beast Mode' series!

High Quality, Tough-as-Nails Bat, Outstanding Service!

I ordered a PowerWood B Series End Loaded bat for my 16-year old son at the end of July, to use in some upcoming wood bat travel tournaments in August. I didn't realize at the time of order that there was a 3-4 week lead time before the bat would be shipped. When I contacted customer service, I received an immediate reply back from John MacDougall, the President, confirming the lead time, AND offering to ship my son a 'demo' bat (same size that we ordered), to use at his upcoming tournament until his custom Powerwood was ready. I paid a very reasonable fee for shipping the demo both ways and we received the demo bat in 2 days! I was a little worried about the risk of the demo bat breaking, and John said, "Don't worry about breaking it. That's the whole point of our bats". The demo bat performed well, my son hit the ball hard and loved it. Then... we received our custom order bat a few weeks later. This Powerwood bat is a beautiful, tough-as-nails Weapon of Mass Destruction! The bat pop is strong, and it also seems to be more forgiving, with pretty much the entire barrel being one big sweet spot. I highly recommend MacDougall Powerwood bats and I commend the outstanding customer service and demo bat service that we received from John! I'll try to snap a few pictures of the bat.

Thank you so much for taking the time Jeffrey. We strive for excellence in absolutely everything we do from our bats to our service. We even operate green and sustainable! Enjoy!

Thank you.

Got the B52 last year and love it. Just got the he M-14 series which gives me the flexibility to adapt to the different levels of pitching I see each week. In the last 7 games I've had 14 hits, 2 extra base hits, 560 BA and 24 RBIs. The results are obvious.

Thanks Steve. Sounds like you're in the groove. Have fun out there!

Dropping bombs

This wood bat is the real thing. The balance and feel are unmatched. The ball performance is as good as the demarini CF we swing. Quality products for sure.

Thanks! Nice Toby! Keep on rakin'.

I absolutely love my MacDougal bat. The ball seems to jump off the bat, even when jammed. I will definitely buy another one when it becomes necessary

Thanks Joe! You found the secret!

Great Bat and great service!

After a year of play the bat split near the handle, sent it in and it was repaired for only $29 and free shipping. The bat has a lot of pop and is a favorite for all wood bat tournaments. I highly recommend it!

Thanks Richard! Reincarnated bats!

My Mac Dougall bat

Hi I’m Mikalani Saavedra my grandfather is the one who bought the bat. I liken the Lizard skin I like the way it feels in my hands and it has a great grip. I also like the sound of the wood after hitting with it. It’s weight it greatly distributed throughout the bat so one side is not heavier than the other.

Thank you Mikalani! Enjoy the bat. You have a smart grandfather!

I love this bat!

Even when I get busted inside and hit it off the trademark, I still manage to line it over the shortstop for a base hit. I have hit several doubles in the gap. I am telling anyone who'll listen that this is the best bat I have ever swung.

Thanks Jack. It's like we say: 'Turn outs into hits'! Have fun with it!

Great Purchase

I was skeptical getting one of these without knowing the “weight”, but had a teammate use one and he liked it. Very happy I wound up purchasing…swings great, end-loading is perfect, and has more forgiveness than a usual wood bat.

Thank you Eric - we appreciate it very much. Have fun out there!

Best wood bat out there!

This is going to sound insane but this bat hits just as far and hard as a BBCOR metal bat! And not just a average metal bat, one of the high end ones. If your looking for a wooden bat, look no further. This bat is LEGIT and its gorgeous to boot. It’s almost too nice to hit balls with.

Thanks so much Gene. People are finding this out one at a time! Enjoy!

Performs as beautiful as it looks!!!

I was intrigued by this bat for multiple reasons initially (warranty, BBCOR certified, American made, small business, etc.) on top of the fact that it was just a beautiful piece of American artwork (we got the clear coat finish). It was purchased for my 14 year old and he absolutely loves it! The way it looks, feels, swings, .....the way it just performs is top notch!

Thanks for taking the time Nathaniel. I hope your son has a ton of fun with it!

Have not swung it yet due to injury

Unfortunately I ordered these bats about 2 weeks before tearing my left bicep. Horrible timing as my warranty is counting down though I haven’t used and won’t be using these bats for at least a few months.

I wish I could send them back or freeze the warranty for now. I can send pics or videos proving they are unused and won’t be until probably April of next year best case.

they look cool and feel ok when I hold with my one good arm but other than that I can’t say much

Hey Will. We do have a telephone! :-)

Great quality, great looks, great feel

When I first opened the box and saw the bat you can immediately just see the work that had gone into it and it was amazing. When you first swing the bat you know it’s a really quality bat. When you hit the ball my favourite part is the sound, as well as when you get a ball lower on the handle it doesn’t hurt like other cheap ones. This will always be my favourite bat to swing and i want to thank the kind people who made this work of art, thank you!

Thanks so much Callum. Enjoy!
