This new premium line of wood bats might be designed with technology, but are made the old fashioned way. It's local craftsmen using the best materials to craft the best bats on the market today. We expect nothing less for America's game and neither should you. The best players in the game deserve only the highest grade wood available. That’s why Slugger hand selects only the best quality wood on the market, which we call MLB Prime Veneer. Amish Craftsmanship - Cut to be harder, the techniques of Amish craftsmanship, square billets and hand sawing, are combined with advanced vacuum drying chambers to form the foundation for the hardest bat you can swing. 360 Degree Compression - Our exclusive machine compression process is far more consistent, guaranteeing 360 degrees of hardness and no soft spots. The new compression process makes a harder, more durable bat and makes bone rubbing a thing of the past. Advanced Finish System - MLB Prime bats include a new, innovative finishing system. The filler fills all grains and cavities for a harder feel and appearance. Then the three layers of topcoat seal the bat and give it the hardest finish of any wood bat on the market. WOOD BAT POLICY: WOOD BATS CARRY NO WARRANTY OR IMPLIED GUARANTEE AGAINST BREAKAGE. BREAKAGE IS A NORMAL PART OF USE AND IS AS LIKELY OT HAPPEN WITH IN THE FIRST FEW SWINGS AS IT IS ON THE 1000TH SWING IF A BALL IS HIT OFF THE WEAK PARTS OF THE BAT. HITTING WITH WOOD BATS REQUIRES PLAYERS TO HIT THE BALL PROPERLY ON THE CORRECT PART OF THE BARREL AND WILL DEVELOP PROPER HITTING SKILLS. IF YOU ARE CONCERNED WITH BREAKING A BAT PLEASE CONSIDER ONE OF THE MANY COMPOSITE WOOD BATS ON THE MARKET. THEY DO NOT REQUIRE THE SKILL THAT REAL WOOD BATS DO BUT ARE MUCH MORE FORGIVING FOR BAD HITS ON THE HANDLE AND END OF THE BARREL AND GENERALLY COME WITH A 30-90 DAY WARRANTY.
