FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

You Asked, We Answered

 

WHICH WOOD IS BETTER, ASH OR MAPLE?

While neither wood is necessarily better than the other, each species has its own characteristics and advantages.

Maple is known for being a stronger, harder wood. The grain structure of maple is much tighter, which means is has less flex than ash, giving that harder feel. Of recent past, maple has been the more popular wood choice.

Ash is more known for its trampoline effect where it will flex a bit more than maple at impact. With its porous grain structure, the ash swings a bit lighter as compared to maple. Ash has been around for years, and has stood the test of time. 

HOW LONG WILL MY ORDER TAKE?

The normal lead time is around two weeks, although that can vary depending on order volumes. Shipping time is an extra 3-5 days on top of that.

WHAT IS THE MLB INK DOT?

The MLB Ink Dot is applied to all maple bats. This ink dot was mandated in 2009 to be applied to all bats used in MLB play. The ink follows the capillaries of the wood, and shows the straightness of the grain. Basically, it is there to show you that your bat is made with high-quality lumber! While WOW Bats are not yet used in the MLB, our standards are not lowered!
