Great Bat

I can only say good things. Starting with the office they did nothing but the best customer service. Working with me and answering all my questions and making sure I was taken care of. Using the bat seemed flawless. It felt so balanced even one of my other players said the same thing. Swinging it was outstanding it felt solid with every hit.

Before I had purchased the bat I checked with a few friends of mine to get a personal review and the first thing they said "I would not be disappointed". They were 100 % correct.

I will be buying another bat here soon!! And would recommend to everyone.

Shane (Adult Baseball)

Wow, thanks for the great review Shane, much appreciated. Although, you probably won't need another one 'soon' unless you're talking about a different model or size! :-)

After countless hours of research, ordered the M-14 for an upcoming wood tournament for my son. He had the opportunity to use it in a few games this weekend, and he loves it!

The quality and attention to detail is amazing.

Also love the fact that I called the company with questions and the OWNER answered, not some "customer service" representative from another country. Great bat, great product. Highly recommend this bat and MacDougall!

Thanks Jerry! Glad to hear your son loves the bat. Innovation, quality AND customer service are all important to us! Enjoy.
Best bat ever.

I bought the Powerwood-21 for my 13 year old. According to him The Powerwood-21 is the best bat he’s ever had. Great feel,great balance and awesome pop. Unbelievable craftsmanship as well.

Thanks Peter! We hope he has a lot of fun with it.
Tuff Grip

My son likes the Tuff Grip very much

Best bat I’ve ever owned. My kids aren’t allowed near it! 😃

Aye! :-)



Vulcan grip is sweet! better and cheaper than the lizard skin, probably will last longer as well.

Thanks Alan!

BEAUTIFUL bat. Scared to even hit with it🤪 Worth every cent! Thanks for making such a great weapon😉

Make it sing, Tanner!

Bought this for my 12 year old who's moving up to the big boy field. He loves this bat, the sound, the feel, the pop. Consistently driving the ball much further than the older kids using metal, even snuck 1 over the fence at 315'.

Ha! Love it! Thanks Alan, that's what we love to hear. Enjoy.

These bats are the real deal. Very durable and outstanding pop! I went 5 for 5 using the M-21 for the first time. My first hit was around 370 to left center. Some of my team mates were skeptical. But after last game, I've got them thinking about purchasing one for themselves! The stats don't lie!

Thanks Brandon! Bring your team mates to 'the light'! :-)
best wood bat

i have been coaching for over 60 years best wood i have had in my hands-----balance is amazing --when players use it and they hit their first ball with it it is a wow did hear that --they are a very well built bat --best on the market and made in Oregon awesome awesome

Thanks Dave! That means a lot to us!
Grip & Bat

The two go hand and hand. Very pleased!!!


When I read Killebrew Used tanoak bat I was sold on trying something different than what the market offers. I have yet really put it to use in games however training with it is great.


Who spends this amount of money on a wood bat? That is what my wife asked when it arrived. When I opened it, it looked more like a work of art than a piece of equipment. Now after 7 games and 32 at bats I am convinced it is a work of art! All contact is solid. Even being sawed off have resulted in bloop hits over first. Gappers are the norm and ground ball outs have some spice to them. More importantly, with the warranty, I swing hard and swing often trying to put the bat through it all.
So, who spends this amount of money on a wood bat? I do and I will gladly do it again IF this bat ever breaks!

Thanks Stephen. Nailed it!
Lots of Pop

As a dedicated Viper guy, I watched as one of my teammates dro
ve the baseball consistently with his new Doogie. Decided to give it a try and had the same results. Big sweet spot and consistently hit the ball harder and farther. Just may be a Doogie convert.

Thanks Greg! We're dedicated too. To performance, durability and customer service. Have fun with the Doogie!
I’m impressed

This bat is the best fungo available, Period! The fit, finish, and craftsmanship is nothing short of art. Seriously, it’s pretty enough you don’t want to hit it. However you would be missing the best part, because these have a phenomenal feel! Much more responsive then other fungos, easy to swing, large sweet spot, nice balance, and just plain enjoyable to hit.

Do yourself a favor, pay the extra and buy one!

Thanks Nic! Nothing like the joy of a good tool!
A wood bat with pop.

Bat is well crafted, beautiful, with all the pop advertised. Video is my son who is 15 and 118#. The hit not seen is 360' to left center.

Thanks Jeff. Right to the point!
Powerwood lives up to it's name!

My son, Liam, is a 5'11 and 130 lbs soaking wet, but you would never guess that he could consistently punch baseballs 280'+ to left center field. We are on our second MacDougall bat and have to give credit to the quality craftsmanship and weight balance of this bat. Thanks for bringing wood back to the game! 5 Stars!

Here is a quick video from this past weekend.

Wow Bob, I don't know what to say! Thank you so much, not only for the the great review and photos, but the the FANTASTIC video! We've never had a customer do a commercial for us. It's great and will be put to good use. Thanks again, John
Freakin' Awesome

Bat looks great, sounds great, feels great, even on off-centered hits. This bat has survived the longest for me this summer so far and helped me get more extra base hits than what I already used. Two thumbs up from me!

Thanks Charlie! That's what we do this for!
Nice grip.

This grip seems to hold up better than other originals and aftermarket. My son has used it in 4 tournaments now with no signs of wear.


I’ve had the B-52 for a few weeks now and I love the way It feels. The end load is nice and I’ve had no problems with the durability, taken a few off the end on offspeed pitches and it’s holding up nicely. The only thing I’m not a huge fan of is the knob, it’s a little small for me personally but other than that it’s perfect!

Thanks Trey!
Love the B52

We ordered my son a new B52 for my 16 yr old. He loves his new bat. He is having a great summer season. And, let me tell you about the great customer service! My son’s teammate broke his bat (not a macdougal) and we were playing back to back wood bat tournaments. John Macdougal was so awesome!!! We ordered a new bat and John was kind enough to ship a demonbat for us to use until our new bat could be built. Talk about phenomenal customer service!!

Thanks Patti. Glad Spencer is having a great season!

Love this stuff..not the fact you put it where you need it and not all over the bat...

Ditto. Good stuff.
Update M21

I said I would post again after a month of games. I don’t know if it’s possible, but in my head I feel like the more II use it the better it feels. I’m 48. I play in a midweek 18/over league. I went 4-4 2/2b 2/1b 4 rbis. The pitcher had speeds all over the place so i tried to let the ball travel a little more focusing on going oppo. I choke up a bit on my 32 1/2 and managed to catch a change up low and away. The ball just jumps off the bat. That hit was a nice line drive between the 1/2baseman. At 48 I’d be lying if I said anything other than I’m proud of the way I’m handling myself with the younger kids. Hitting is so mental, this bat is giving me the confidence to just focus on putting bat to ball. After a month I am hitting well. A few adjustments along with the lumber I’m very Happy. And I don’t have to worry about breaking this bat. I know it’s solid.

Ha! Thanks Joey! I see you're using ALL the barrel. That's what we made it for. More fun - less pain. Have a great summer.
Great bat!!

My son has only used it in 3 tournaments so far, but this one will be staying in the bat bag, not in the closet with the rest. Very solid and has great sound and pop. Huge sweet spot.

Nice! Thanks William. Happy to hear he's liking it!
