Another awesome bat

My dad bought a new B-52 last fall, awesome, I got a 360’ homer with it today in a PG tournament, awesome feel, awesome pop, love this thing. It’s the 2nd one I’ve got, best wood bats out there. Everyone else's bats break, not this one, most of the team uses my bat now. Thx guys for making a great durable bat.

Thanks Aidan. Congrats on the dinger! I'm sure there's plenty more of those in the beast. Have a great summer.
Worked like a charm

After struggling to find a wood bat with the right balanced feel, based on the reviews we decided to give the M14 a shot for my son who just finished his freshman season. Worked like a charm. There was an immediate difference in production from other wood bats. After hitting two shots in his first two at bats last game, two of his teammates tried it out and also hit the ball much better. A noticeable difference from the mass produced bats.

Thanks Aaron. I'm glad to hear you're son is liking his new bat. People are learning our 'Craft Brewed' wood beats all the 'Budweiser' brands all day long! Have a great summer.
Awesoem Bat

My 15 year old son has one and loves it. Very smooth and swings really well. We have 3-4 wood bats lying around and this is by far the best one.

Thanks George. The 'best' is how we roll! :-)
The Beginning

Son just got this beast. He loves it swing is solid End load is way better than big label bat and the crack win he hits is great

It is a sweet sound! Have a great season.
GREAT WOOD BAT!!

Only tried in the batting cages as the wood terminates have not come around yet. Bat is smoothe with great pop! Beautiful workmanship and great people to work with!!

Thanks Richard. If he likes the bat, no reason to wait for wood bat tournaments. Performance is the same as aluminum/composite. That's what BBCOR means. Have a great season!

Love it! Great stuff!

Solid bat

Haven't played in ages and have joined a men's league. Literally first time off live arm I broke a bat, so I decided to buy something that will hold up. This a really solid bat that is beautifully made. It's my first laminated bat and it has a little different balance than I was used to but has good pop and is built to last.

Solid bat.

I’ve only been using this bat for a few weeks now. Seems to hold up better than any maple bats I’ve had in the past. Ball jumps off the bat.

Thanks Seth. 'Jumping' is good! Further, after you use our bat for a while , you'll say 'maple schmaple'. :-)
Wow - my son loves this bat

My son is a freshman in high school. He loves the solid and very balanced feel this bat provides. He has had it for 2 weeks now it has been his every day bat.

Thanks Alan. Nice to hear about another chink out of the aluminum armor! :-) Keep hitting around that sweet spot!

M21 bat with tough grip

Son absolutely loves the bat and the grip is great too. He like grip better than lizard skin and it's cheaper too! Great quality products from MacDougall...top of notch all the way!

Thanks James!
That Sound though......

So I’ve lashed out on a new club after a few years of swinging a “D” branded composite bat. It had decent pop but dull sound. Someone pointed me to the MacD bats and the craftsmanship caught my eye. The reviews and info looked good, so I dropped my $$ down and was not disappointed. Playing in an open, all wood bat league, there’s plenty of dull sounding bats out there.
The MacDougall makes heads turn. Sure, It’s got plenty of power, and that CRACK though........ outfielders are heading for the fence before the ball has cleared the infield...... everyone wants to have a look at it. They admire it, then ask where they can get one..I’m not sure I want too many of the opposition to get one to be honest...... my pitchers may not be happy. 7 games in with it and I’m hitting close to .600. At 48 I don’t run quite as quick as I used to, but I’m not having to with this monster in my hands. Lots of balls going to the outfield grass...... in a hurry!!! Haven’t hit a jack with it yet.....But came very close in my first AB with it. Will consider buying another for my eldest son when he’s stopped growing so fast!,,,,,,

Thanks Shaun! Always nice to hear how well our bats are received 'down unda'. Have fun with it!
this rain is killing me, but....

So I have to be honest, I had the bat for about a month and we have nothing but rain in NJ, its brutal. I play in an over 35 league in North Jersey. I did use the M21 five times in the tunnels, soft toss, regular BP, and some live pitching. so far, the bat feels balanced and definitely has some pop. I went back and forth between an Old Hickory and the Powerwood. I loved my Old Hickory but John and the family, the way the bats are made had me intrigued...Right now, I couldn't be happier with my Powerwood. A five month break warranty says alot about this company. Plus the break fix option seems to be cool. Logically it makes sense. Thanks John. I will post another review after a few games.

Thanks Joey. Keep doing your sun dance.
Great grip

Definitely like this grip better than the lizard skin. it's paper thin and holds up well

It's good stuff. Glad you like it Joey!
12u Danbury Baseball

Thank you Macdougall for a quality bat! We purchased the bat over the winter for our workouts and were happy with the comfort and balance of the bat. My son loves the weight balance and contact feel when hitting the ball. He’s a competitive player playing in-house and travel teams so that means a lot of games and swings. The bat has GREAT pop!! He’s realizing how much more he enjoys the bat since we transferred out to the fields. If we had had this bat for 6 plus months we would have given it a 5Star. But if your scale was a 4.5 we’d click it. Awesome awesome product! Beautiful craftsmanship!

Thanks John. Where they truly shine is on the field where you can SEE the result! Have a great season.
Vulcan grip

Fungomatic

Great bat. Very impressed with the beautiful craftsmanship and how strong and durable this fungo is. It has great pop and balanced well. I don’t see buying another fungo in my future as this one looks like it will last a lifetime. Well done Macdougall family. Go Wolverines

Thanks Justin! Have a great season up there. Go Wolverines!
Great bat

I'm very happy with it. It looks great and has lots of pop. I'll be getting a second one for next season

Thanks Sid! Have a great season up there!
Powerwood B52

What can I say. This is our second bat from Macdougall and they are awesome! My sons first bat was the M-21 which he hit absolute bombs with. This bat had well over 3000 hits on it, and he hits this bat just as hard as he does metal bats. He just recently hit 385 with an exit velocity of 102.2 with the M21 at 15 years old. We just bought the B52 which he wanted to use for this upcoming summer. John put the new American made grip on it for us. We just received the bat and the grip is amazing. My took his first hacks with this bat over the weekend. I can wait to see it in live play action this summer. Ironically also over the weekend he just broke his M21 which I plan on sending back to get repaired. These bats are really made to take a beating. His M21 is over a 9 months old and with that many hits it has outlasted every other wood bat he has every swung. Keep making great American products. Anyone considering these bats do it. You won't regret it.

2nd one

Second one. Son just loves to swing it!

First Wood bat for 9U player

Got the 30" -5 for my son for BP and he used it for the first time on Saturday in BP with no issues. Great Quality bat on visual inspection.

Pop

Bat has great pop and sound. When you hit the sweet spot with a high EV it sounds like a firecracker. Distance was better than average. Results from the Hitrakker.

Thanks Robert. Just wait til he gets on the field with it!
Tons of Pop

Charles is loving the bat! He says it has tons of pop and is a lot like his Combat composite bat! Awesome, beautiful bat!

Thanks Robert. Great to hear! Enjoy.
Awesome bat!

I bought the M-14 series 31 1/2" bat for my 13yr old son for Xmas. He absolutely loves this wood bat. He loves the balanced swing and the great "pop" ! Living in PA this time of year, he hits balls off the tee in our basement, the sound is amazing and the bat hardly has any ball marks on the barrel, Tanoak baby! We look forward to putting it to use this spring in games! Also love the fact you can call the company with questions and speak to the OWNER, not some "customer service" representative from another country. Great bat, great product, made in the USA! I would recommend this bat to anyone!

Thanks Jeff. He'll see it shine brighter when he gets outside with it. Happy New Year!

Phoenix World Series

Bought this bat prior to our father - son World Series tournament in Phoenix, AZ this past week. I am still getting used to the bat, but so far the hits have a solid feel and great sound. I like the fact of knowing I will have this bat as I get comfortable with it. I’m tired of bats breaking on me just when I get hot.
I’m also looking forward to trying other MacDougal models.

Thanks James. I hope you guys had fun down there. (How could you not?!!)
