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?!!)
Great Bat!

My son loves his MacDougall Bat, tough and durable, but has great pop

Thanks Michael. I'm sure JT will have a lot of fun playing in college!
Best wood bat

Great bat with a ton of pop!

Thanks Raymond!
Absolute awesomeness

This bat has a sweet sound and an excellent feel. My players love this bat and are working harder to make the top of the roster to be the first in the game to use it. I'm glad that I made the purchase.

Thanks Steele! We're ALWAYS happy to hear that people like our bats.
Beautiful Solid Craftsmanship

To tell the truth I haven't swung a bat competitively in 16 years but the minute I came across this bat I got an itch, lol !!! So I'm gonna order a few for my high school and one for me for the cage after a stressful day at work. Can't wait to get some swings in with it and to see others hit with it.

Hey Wesley - nothing like the crack of the bat to relieve stress!
Love

I'm in love...this B-52 is a hitting "instrument" and I have it fine tuned
to that of a maestro!!

Of all bombs if hit in the last few weeks, they still haven't found this
one (pic attached)!! The ball absolutely jumps off a MacDougall!

Thanks Rod. Glad you're having fun with it!
What are you waiting for?

I had been eyeing one of these for the past year. With only a couple games to go this season I finally ordered a 34" B-52. My only regret is not ordering it sooner. It is such a beautiful bat that I felt it deserved to be displayed on a wall rather than smash baseballs with it, until I smashed some baseballs with it. The sound and the pop of this bat, even on mishits, is the real art. It's only been a few weeks, but it's everything I wanted and more than I expected. Bring on the playoffs!!! Thank-you.

Thanks Scott, glad you're having fun with the bat. It's one of those cases where beautiy is more than skin deep!
Work of art

McDougal bats are an ingenious design that make for an incredibly strong and responsive bat. I think they have more pop than a metal bat. But it’s their look that I love most. The craftsmanship makes The bat look like a work of art. Everything about the joinery and construction provides strength to the bat.
I tip my cap to John McDougal...

Thank you for the kind words Gary.

Fungomatic - the last fungo I will buy

I recently purchased the Fungomatic fungo bat. As someone who has coached, and with 4 boys who play under 16, I have tried every fungo made. Its 35" length is ideal for infield and outfield practice. The balance and slightly thicker handle is like no other fungo I have used - extremely solid. I recommend this to anyone as a practice tool, not just coaches. I think I just bought my last fungo...

Thanks Matt - enjoy it! Make 'em work hard!
375' homerun

My son loves the bat! The finish is fantastic and the sound off the barrel is a solid crack! In his 5th at bat using the B 52 he put one over the right field fence approx. 375'. Nice

VERY nice! Thanks, and tell your son to keep rakin'!
Awesome bat

Yes, bats are expensive, with that in mind, this is the best wood bat I have ever purchased, I wish these had been available when I was playing baseball. It’s value lies in its clever design, the wedges of lamination create incredible strength, It would be pretty difficult to break this bat! It is also heavier than most other softball bats, a real plus. I highly recommend it. Get one, you won’t be sorry.

Thanks Gary! Enjoy it!
Beautiful!

What a beautiful bat! My grandson was very excited when he opened it up and reports that it feels great to hit with. Honestly can't speak to the performance of it, but the smile on his face alone was worth it! Transaction was smooth and bat was delivered ahead of schedule.

Thanks!

Artisans at Bat making !

This bat is going to sit on a bedroom wall for five years as I wanted to get our three year old grandson his first little league bat for his birthday! The workmanship is of the highest quality and I couldn’t put it down for a couple hours after it was delivered ! I’ll have at least two more bats to order in the next couple years and I can’t wait !

Haha! That's great Paul. At least take it down and let him sleep with it once in a while. :-)
Solid

Tonight the ball was sailing off the fence. People using the bat love it, calling it sweetness. Some were thinking of buying one for themselves; they even took pictures of the bat.

Best Wood Bat Ever !!!!

My son has literally used about every metal and wood bat invented.......the M-21 is by far the best he has ever put in his hands.
The craftsmanship jumps out at you.......more like fine piece of furniture than a "bat". This translates into the performance of the bat clearly.

Cheers Eric! It's always nice to find the 'one'!

BEST BAT ON THE MARKET

As a former Professional Baseball player , I have used just about every wood bat on the market, MacDougall is the best bat hands down. I have bought several bats for my son and also purchased several Fungo's for former teammates and coaches . The craftsmanship and quality are amazing , to a point that the bat is so Beautiful you don't want to use it and just hang on a wall to display ! John , Thank you for producing such an Amazing bat !

Hey Jeff, thank you for the kind words. We always try to do everything the 'right way' so I'm happy to hear it shows! Thanks for the cool picture too!
Beautiful bat

I have only used the bat in a few games so far this season but it seems to have a lovely clean feel and good pop. I know I am going to have a great season with this bat. It looks cool too! Love the warranty but hope I am not going to have to use it and the bat outlasts the 5 months. Last year I went through two Marucci $150 bats and two $79 bats in the season. Customer service was excellent. Thanks

Thanks Jack. Glad to hear you like it. That math looks pretty good for us, eh? :-)
Powerwood M-14 is a great bat!

I bought the Powerwood M-14 for my son (plays 13u) to use in his team's first wood bat tournament. It looks like a work of art and he had solid hits with it all weekend. By the end of the two day tournament, four other boys on the team were swinging it also. One of them hit a homerun with it and one hopped the fence the next time up. Another hit a line drive that landed right in front of the fence. The boys were hitting the ball just as far, if not farther, than they had in the tournaments that allowed composite bats. The sound the bat makes on a solid hit is music to the ears! I highly recommend this bat.

Thanks David for the great feedback! That sound you heard was the sound of REAL baseball! Have a great summer.
Great Wood Bat!

Son has been using in cage for 2 weeks and loves it! Great balance and pop - sting on inside pitch is minimized as well. This is the first wood bat (that has lasted) that he really likes. Can’t wait for games. Thanks.

Thanks Derrick. We can't wait for him to use it in games either! That's when they shine.
Very Pleasant Surprise

Bought this bat for my son. We purchased it for his summer league. After hitting with it he wanted to use it for his high school season. In all my years I have never seen a wood bat perform like this one. Ball seems to jump off it. The sweet spot seems quite large and no vibration in the hands. Listening to the sound of this bat and watching the way the ball jumps makes this a true winner. Mac Dougall got it right. Top notch produce. I only wish the handle wasn't quite so smooth and finished. Makes it slick with out Lizzard tape or pine tar. Even with that it's a 5 star bat.

Thanks Brian. Your son can join the many others using our bat instead of metal during the season.who have figured out it's the way to go! Have a great year.
best bat period

My son loves it, only bat he will use. First game with it, 2 doubles and a triple. Its great to see that their are still craftsman out there, great bat!

Thanks George. Sounds like it's being put to good use! We mix Old School craftsmanship with New School design. Have a great season!
Strong, Awesome B 52 Bat

Gotta love this bat. The look of it takes you back to the days of Joe DiMaggio. It took me a few days to get used to the drop 2 weight, but this bat is getting through the zone and crushing balls with an awesome sound. So far it has taken hits and daily use extremely well and it still looks awesome! I have recommended this bat to friends and I can't wait to use it in games in my summer collegiate league! Thanks John for an awesome bat and keep doing great work! Even looks good dirtied with a little Pelican Bat wax!

Thanks Ben, that's awesome! Be sure to let us know where you go to play this summer. I'm sure you'll have a blast.
Great Quality and Performance

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.

Thanks Andrew! In a world of mediocrity, we try to provide players a bat that makes them smile. Cheers!

Great 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.
