I just recently made my 3rd MacDougall purchase in 4 years. My first 2 bats were the M series. The first one made it a full couple years and still holds steady. The second one had a break after just over a season's worth of use (played 6 games with it in 2021 and 18 with it in 2022).
I'm deciding to try the B series with my most recent purchase. As I approach 40 years of age, I'm looking as to how to best capitalize on my strengths. Will have to wait about 6 months for next season to start, but couldn't pass up on the sale. These bats are sturdy, have great pop, and the customer service is great! That's why I keep coming back.
Thanks so much for taking the time Jason! We appreciate you! Now you've got a weapon for the 'tossers'. ⚾⚾
As a MacDougall myself, and a baseball dad, I bought the youth Powerwood for my son a couple years ago. And it was awesome. Lots of pop and beautiful craftsmanship. Then I thought, it’s so beautiful, my father would probably love one too. But more as a decoration for his man cave. So I got him this bat. Knowing full well, that one day, my son when he’s college-aged can use it during his summer league games. So for now, it sits on my father’s wall on Cape Cod, waiting for his grandson to come and grab it when he’s selected to play in the summer Cape Cod league one day (I can dream, right?).
Tapadh leat Don! The bat will age well on your dad's wall, but know that your son will need more before then! ⚾⚾⚾
My 9 year old son loves this bat!
I love the bat. Solid contact even when not on the sweet spot.
Thanks Steven! You GET it! Now you got it. Have fun out there!⚾️
These bats are of the highest quality. They are super solid and the ball flys off of them. I highly recommend these bats!
The bat is definitely worth the money also with the one year warranty you
definitely cannot beat that which I think will not break because of what
the bat is made of the sound of a baseball coming off the bat sounds like
it's going over the fence every time and the bat has a strong sweet spot
when this one breaks if it ever does I will definitely be purchasing
Thanks Angelo! All true! ⚾⚾⚾
Only had the bat a couple weeks and was able to hit a few times with it, but it sounds and hits extremely well. Only complaint I have is, since I don't wear batting gloves, the optional tuffgrip get slippery when your hands get sweaty. A cheap pair of gloves fixed it though.
Thanks for taking the time John! Glad you're liking the bat. Sorry about the Tuffgrip. That stuff usually works well when wet. Maybe a little Pelican stick or Pine Pop so you can keep the gloves off. ⚾⚾
Son is 9 yrs old and loves the hell out of this bat. He is strong as an ox and swings it well. It’s great for BP. When he uses his CatX 29 drop 10 in games he smashes
Thanks a lot Joey! Glad to see Cruz having fun with it!
I am 47, play in MSBL/MABL and recently bought a 34in End Load.. This bat is FANTASTIC. PERIOD! I will be buying another just to have in my bag but I don’t think anything is happening to my current Mac Dougal. This bat swings great and sends them even when hit mishit. Barreling one up rewards you with a great sounding POP and an even harder hit ball. Highly Recommended!!!
Thanks so much Brian! 'Feel the difference'!! You have a 97% chance of NOT having to use the warranty. ⚾️
Bat is perfect
Good pop off the bat
Love the grip
Thanks Frank! Can't argue with 'perfect'. ⚾⚾⚾
My 16 year old boy plays in the PG Events and they are ‘wood bat only’ events. He loves his bat and walking away with the trophy’s!
Great bat and great crew there at MACDOUGALL! Thank you!
NICE! Thanks for taking the time Bryan! We hope Kevin finds a lot of fun and success in baseball. ⚾⚾⚾
When we returned home from the All-State tournament my sons new bat was there waiting on him. He was pumped!! But thought it was a commemorative bat because of how perfect the bat was. After some convincing he went outside to the cage and went to work. The pop you can hear off the bat translates directly to the ball. When my son came out of the cage he was smiling ear to ear. Awesome attention to detail. What a great bat.
Thanks so much Shea! Ear to ear smiles are what we are all about. Enjoy. ⚾⚾⚾
We play in the Texas Sandlot League. Steel spikes, wood bats, hard throwing. I received this bat and our next event was a fund raiser Home Run Derby. 23 players. I placed 2nd. Holy moly sun-of-a-gun. I won't bother carrying around those old sticks I used to use. I just need this one.
Hah! Thanks Loren (I mean Barry) Congrats on the Derby! Go up a half inch and see what happens next time. Keep having fun out there! ⚾⚾⚾
It is an excellent product, a very good balanced wooden bat ready to use in the game.
Thanks for taking the time Jorge! Have fun out there. ⚾⚾
I was lucky enough to stop by the shop in Bend on my way home and I'm sure glad I did. John was awesome, he showed me the process of how the bats are made along with some interesting stories and made the whole experience excellent. I had a hard time trying to figure out which model felt better for me, luckily enough, John let demo both models and I decided to order the B-series. I'm sure glad I chose to stop by and buy one of these high quality bats, the ball seems to jump off the bat even when it's not the sweet spot, definitely made a couple more hits squeak through. I make sure to tell everyone about how much I enjoy this bat especially when you connect the barrel on the ball. Thank you for the wonderful bat and service.
Hey Grant, thank you so much for the kind words! We are always happy to have folks come by the shop and see how the magic is done. We are the only one's in the world that do what we do and we love to share. Enjoy your bat and have a lot of fun with it!
Bat feels sturdy and well constructed. Swings well, balance is fantastic. Sound is amazing. Distinct and memorable when you barrel it.
If there is an issue, it would be that the bat is so beautiful, you almost don’t want to hit balls with it. Would buy again when time comes for other kid.
Thanks BR. We appreciate you taking the time! And yes, it is a 'family' thing! ⚾⚾
When I first picked up my bat, it felt really nice and my first swings felt amazing.
Thanks Dominic! Put 'er to work!
I gave my 30 year old son a 34" MacDougal Powerwood End Loaded bat to use in the Men's Baseball League he plays in. He has used it in one game so far and hit 3 line drives with it (a single, a double, and one caught at the wall by the CF.) He was swinging a 34" Baum and said the MacDougal feels lighter and has more pop. I can tell the ball carries farther too. The bat has got the attention of the other players on his team so expect more orders coming you way Mr. MacDougal.
Thanks for taking the time James. We apprectiate it! Happy to hear your son has discovered that real wood beats plastic! Many hard hits to come!
Grip is amazing. Bat is amazing. Balanced and powerful. Sound of barrel contact is distinctive and beautiful.
Thanks Ben! That is music, isn't it?
My son has been using this bat for several weeks. My son has hit great with this bat and I have not heard one complaint. Yesterday, after a game my son told me his bat still looks "pretty" and "shiny" compared to his other friend's bats. My response was you have been using it, haven't you? Let's just say I got one of those looks from my son. This morning my son was telling me he loves how big the sweet spot is on this bat. Little or no vibration along with better control overall with his swing. So, if he's happy with the bat then that makes me happy. Go Baseball!
Thanks so much Matthew! If your son is happy, we are happy too!
Don’t know if got a bit stronger, but the ball is jumping off of my new MacDougall bat like never before. I’m giving the bat the credit!
Thank you Dan! OK, we'll take it. ⚾⚾
We’ve been using it for bp- it’s a little heavier and has really helped my sons bay speed with out messing up his swing
Thanks Michael! Now take it outside to compare and see it shine! Cheers.
If you want to hit a home run, get the home plate cutting board. I got this for my wife for Mother's Day and WOW. I hit a home run with her. Look at this cutting/serving board high quality and supreme detail to attention. So hit a Home Run , and be Safe at home with this home plate. Thanks MacDougall and sons for the Home Run.
again thanks Mike Carstensen
Thanks Mike! Enjoy. And remember - There's no place like home!
Fantastic bat. Love it
Thank you Arthur! To the point! Have fun out there.
