Powerwood Bat Repair
Matt Beeble (Vancouver, US)
Pleasantly surprised

John was responsive and flexible. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to salvage the bat I'd had for over 4 years but I got my bat back before my next game and it's hitting better than ever. I love the new grip. The only downside is that I won't get to purchase a new MacDougall for awhile.

Thanks Matt! Our 'cats' may not have 9 lives, but they usually have more than one! ⚾

HR Bat

First time my son used it was at a home run derby and got two home runs. Great bat.

Thanks for writing Frank! Plenty of power even in little guys hands! ⚾⚾

Great bat

I enjoy swinging the bat. Good performance and I have squared up quite a
few balls. No vibration at all.

Thanks Richard! Keep squaring 'em up!

PowerWood B Series End Loaded Wood Bat
daniel stickney (Philadelphia, US)
Awesome Bat

After my son broke several other high dollar bats I decided to give the Macdougal a try
From the second he laid eyes on the bat he fell in love the craftsmanship alone was well above others
The first game with the bat was just as impressive with great pop
This is his go to bat

Thanks so much Daniel! Appreciate the video and we hope your son has a great year!

Hits like a truck

Great feel. Comes through the zone with a lot of power.

Nice! Thanks for the video Kurt! Keep on crushing it and having fun! ⚾⚾


my son is 12, he absolutely loves it . A lot of power and great pop. Best wooden bat he has used, plan on ordering more soon.

Thanks so much Tim, Looks like you've got one of the 'large size' 12 YO.

Powerwood SB Softball Wood Bat
James Wilbur (New Milford, US)

The bat has tremendous pop to it. Sounds great coming off the bat. Added about 50 ft to my swing distance. The feel of the bat is great. Would buy again without hesitation. Great bat keep up the product.

Thanks James! Keep on crushin' +++

Powerwood M Series Balanced Wood Bat
Alex Pogasic (Walled Lake, US)
Powerwood M Series

This bat is by far my favorite bat! I have always preferred a thin handle, which this has, and an even weight. The ball feels great off the bat and I even a couple balls that have jammed me didn't sting and the bat held up with no damage. I love seeing all the ball marks in my barrel as well. A good sign that I'm making hard contact and the balls jumping off this bat agree. Thanks for a well crafted bat and if I ever need a bat in the future I would be getting this model again!

Thanks so much for taking the time Alex! We wish you lots of fun and hard-hit balls with it.

Lizard Skins Bat Grip
Alex Pogasic (Chicago, US)
Lizard Skin Bat Grip

Guys, the Lizard Skin is the best bat grip I have had. I decided to spend the money instead of taping myself and I couldn't be happier. So far through about 30 AB's I haven't had any issue with it peeling off and I don't need to use pine tar or anything sticky, which I prefer not to use in the first place. I even got white and the coloring is holding so the handle still looks sharp.
Thank you for a great job taping up the bat as well!

Thanks Alex!

MacDougall Logo Hat
Mary I. (Chicago, US)
Awesome hat, but too small for my fiancé’s big head

This hat is very high quality, and the logo is so cool. My fiancé is a MacDougall and he loves the hat, but he has a big head and the hat doesn’t fit him. I might try to get an extender for the snaps so he can wear it.

We'll look into getting some larger sizes for big headed MacDougalls!

Great bat

Son plays collegiate league ball during summer,wood bat league. After breaking his second bat after 15 games, let him take a look at the macdougal website and he liked the way it looked and instead of getting another wood or composite we purchased it. Had a change in length a couple of days after ordering and I was hopping it wouldn’t be to late to change, but the owner himself emailed me back with out any problem to change. He finished out the rest of the 20 games with no problems, bat looks great, the red finish is holding up great from the games and hitting practices. Will definitely order again .

Thanks for sharing that Ralph. That's a similar story to how many people end up coming to us and becoming lifelong customers. Glad to hear Nick enjoyed it! ⚾⚾

Powerwood K-3 Youth Wood Baseball Bat
David Graham (Odessa, US)
Great craftsmanship

My son loves this bat. It's really a work of art. I'm buying the fungo and cutting board next.

Thanks David. That's the way to start them off! Enjoy ⚾⚾

A lot more pop than u think

I have hit a lot of bombs with this bat, and o don’t have to worry about it breaking, great bat!

Thanks Morgan! Keep on raking and having fun with it!

MacDougall For Artwork

Am excited to use my beautiful strong custom bat in a piñata art performance.

Thanks Gretchen. I have to say - our bats are a hit for any occasion! . We hope your show is a success!

M series

I haven’t played in over a year do to hip injury now replacement I’m 67 playing in MSBL
Used bat for first time
First two times up I was off timing and just grounded twice
Third time I just said enough and roped the ball over the left fielders head
Haven’t hit a ball that good in a long time
New hip verse and or M bat !!! But it just accelerated off the bat for a double
I like it a lot

Thanks Ken! We're in the same Bionic Hip Club. Keep crankin' double because now you can!

Flint Alm (Saint John, US)
the best

I bought 2 bats, one for my grandson, and 1 for me
he has used his bat and loves everything about it
I don't get a chance to swing it as much as he does, but with 1 look you can tell it is a great American made product, made with pride ,and made to last

Thanks Flint! It's great you are sharing baseball with your grandson!

Powerwood M Series Balanced Wood Bat
Paul Vanaman (Mays Landing, US)
Great Bat

15 year old son - Loves the bat! excellent all around - Thanks

Cheers! Thanks for taking the time Paul!

Powerwood M Series Balanced Wood Bat
Derrick E Hendricks (Phoenix, US)
Josh@invader nation

Beautiful Craftsmanship, great quality, solid sound, great balance, lizzars skin grip wadded up fairly early. Hitters that twist their hands better tape the handle yourself! Never had a wodd bat that needs "breaking in" like a composite!

Thanks for the nice review Josh. BTW, no wood bats need 'breaking in' despite what you might hear out there. It's a term that should 'stick' with composite bats. Make the bat sing! Enjoy.

Powerwood SB Softball Wood Bat
Michael Cook (Ambler, US)
Game Changer

I’ve played two games with my new Dougie in a modified fast pitch wood bat league and the bat is superb. High quality and great feel. Looks like a piece of art. Very pleased.

Thanks Michael! We're happy when you're happy! Have fun with it.

Powerwood SB Softball Wood Bat
David Christy (Blue Bell, US)
Solid Bat - Weight and Feel

This bat is the best wood bat I've purchased and used for slow-pitch softball. Definitely buying a few different ones for baseball as well!

Thank you for taking the time David. It's fun to crush balls at ANY speed! ⚾

Powerwood M Series Balanced Wood Bat
Ray (Port Charlotte, US)
Great Bat!!

This bat has been everything described and more! We bought the M series and it gas great pop and balance. This by far has been the best wood bat we have purched, MacDougall bats are the real deal!

Thanks Ray! We love the feedback. Swing away!

Wow! Just Wow!

My son loves this bat! When he unboxed it my first reaction was put it on the wall as art! I can’t believe how nice it is. His hitting coach told him the same thing, it’s a piece of art! Second day after he showed everyone the bat he started doing tee work. He loves the feel, the sound, then power he has with the bat. We did a bunch of research before buying. You can pay less for a wooden bat, but in my opinion you aren’t overpaying for a McDougall. It’s really that well put together and looks that good. We will be back to buy more as Ike grows up. Thanks for what you folks do!
P.S. The back story was also wonderful.

Thanks so much for taking the time Patrick! We hope Ike has a ton of fun with it!

Chris Knabenshue (Denver, US)
Really Cool Fungo

An absolute piece of art, great craftsmanship, works great making kids better at baseball and looks amazing on the wall too !!!

Thanks Chris! See, you CAN have nice things! :-)

PowerWood B Series End Loaded Wood Bat
Brad Simpkins (Bend, US)

I don't think it was the grip but my end weighted 34 inch Macdougall bat
put one over the center fielders head for a stand up double yesterday. I
love this Bat. MSBL 55+ Dragons.

Thanks Brad,
Keep on crushin'!

Game winning hit

Son used bat for 1st time this weekend, hit two balls well; one as deep as he has ever hit and another for a game winning RBI base hit to left center, sounded well and seemed to have good pop

Thanks Byrne and thanks for the great video. Looks like he's off to a great start with it!
