The 243 is constructed with a thin handle, blunt knob (no taper), and a hefty barrel. With these specs, we recommend the 243 to the experienced wood bat user, the veteran swinger who hits for power and prefers leisurely jogs around the bases.
Naked Specs – 243:
- Wood type: maple
- Barrel diameter: large, 2.50″
- Handle diameter: thin, 0.94″
- Swing weight: end-loaded
- Knob: traditional/blunt
Barrel diameter is at bat’s widest point while the handle diameter is at its thinnest point. Leave it as an unfinished wood bat for great pine tar adhesion, or add a clear coat to protect it from the elements.
