Traditional knob - similar 110
Grandson loves this bat! Really, other than the sound, it plays the same as any other high quality wood bat plus the sweet spot seems a little bigger. Looks fantastic, the finish is excellent and durable. It's made of Hickory so that may be one of the reasons why the crack of the bat is a little higher pitched but still a really sweet sound. Worth every penny.
I bought the M-10 for my 15 year old after a couple of higher end maple bats had broken during games this past summer. We tested it out during a cage lesson and the pop and sound were immediately noticed. After an hour in the cages this bat easily became my son's favorite bat of all time! After a second cage session, it was time to test it out during live BP during a team practice, getting prepared for a tournament starting the next day. My son crushed the ball over the fence several times and many others were shots close to or at the warning track. The first tournament with the M-10 was a success as well. Thanks to MacDougall for a high quality, very balanced bat!
Feels great, very balanced, swings fast. Great pop when contact point is outside of the normal barrel hot zone.
This is my sons first wooden bat so I have nothing to compare it to other than his aluminum and composite bats but, he loves this bat. He loves the feel of it in his hands and he swings it well. He hits as good (or better) with it as he does with his Meta or Cat 8. This bat is a beautiful work of art with craftsmanship second to none. I especially like the idea of rotating the bat and not having to line up the grain before each swing. Great job guys.
My son is 16u Travel ball player. Broke 2 bats this summer. Bought your bat and he has been swinging it for 2 weeks and loves it!!! Everyone we have shown the bat too loves the design. Expect more orders.
