Sam Bat Maple Wood Baseball Bat: R2K1 (73) Walker/Black Adult review by basement batting cage
Pros: It is balanced, easy to swing and has a larger barrel than most bats of this kind. The wood is harder than the maple Mizuno & Rawlings bats I own. It has a large knob which feels good on bottom hand and takes presure off of that hand on contact. The thin handle feels good and keeps the bat light. I've been in a hardball league 3 years and this is the best of the 5 bats I've used. Cons:It is more expensive than most bats, but worth it. If you haven't swung a bat with an extra large knob I suggest you do so before buying one. I wouldn't swing anything else but it isn't for everyone and you'll need to findout for yourself.

For a contact hitter would this bat, the KB1, or a Marucci be best?

If you are looking for a balanced model that will be very fitting for a contact hitter, I would probably suggest the Marucci Jose Bautista Maple Wood Baseball Bat: (JB19).

Product Description

Sam Bat knows a thing or two about wood bats. Sam developed this model for Barry Bonds, and on August 7, 2007 the Major League Home Run record was broken by Bonds using this Sam Bat model. The R2K1 (or 73 as it's sometimes known) features a large 2 1/2 inch barrel and a 15/16 inch handle. However, it's the distinctive flared knob on the R2K1 that makes it unique. This knob was designed to be the same size as a baseball in your hand. Because of its large size, it provides incredible support and counter balances the large barrel to give the R2K1 a surprisingly balanced feel. Every bat to come out of the mill is made from the top 5% of Hard Maple Prime Grade Timber harvested in North America. That makes a Sam Bat good, but what happens next makes it great. Conventional lathes put a tremendous amount of stress on timber as the wood is being turned. This fatigue weakens the stick before it even sees the ballpark. Sam Bat timber is turned into a baseball bat on a proprietary lathe, custom built for and designed by Sam Holman, the founder of Sam Bat. This exclusive technology puts absolutely no stress on the timber during the production process. Most bats lose at least 4-5 long shots before they leave the factory floor, but Sam Bats keep them. But the real test is at the elite pro level. In just a few years, hundreds of professional players have made the switch to Sam Bat Hard Maple Wood Bats. Sam Bat: The Original Maple Bat Company!

About Sam Bat

Sam Bat Origins of Sam BatSam Bat grew out of careful research and a thorough knowledge of eastern hardwoods. It also developed from a simple question by Bill MacKenzie, then of the Colorado Rockies: "We're just breaking too many bats. Do you think you could come up with an answer to that?" The solution was fairly obvious. But the answer led to a pile of work and a crash course on bats. The reading list ranged from "The Physics of Baseball", "The Rules of Major League Baseball", "219 Patents on Baseball Bats" to "The Trees of Canada, Standard Handbook for Civil Engineers".
