Sam Bat Maple Wood Baseball Bat: RB8 Natural/Black Adult review by Duncan77
Pros: Amazing bat, with incredible pop. Balanced, and great looking. Note when ordering you can specify the cup depth at the end of the barrel, from shallow to med to deep. It will effect the sweet spot on the barrel. Cons:None

Which bat would be better for a contact hitter with some power, the Sam Bat RB8 or the Old Hickory YP66? Which bat is more balanced?

The Sam Bat Maple Wood Bat (RB8 Natural/Black Adult) will have a 2 1/2" diameter. It will feature a flared knob and pro cupped end for better balance. The YP66 Old Hickory model will feature the same barrel diameter but will be a 243 turn model. It will also have a longer barrel length and sweet spot.

What are the differences between the RB8 model and and the the KB1? Which one is more balanced?

Both the Sam Bat Maple Wood Bat (RB8 Natural/Black Adult) and the Sam Bat Maple Wood Bat (KB1 Walker/Black Adult) will have 2 1/2" barrels diameters. They both will also feature a flared knob and cupped end. The main difference is that the KB1 is the Rideau Crusher Model and a 271 turn. They both will feature the same balanced feel.

What turn model is this bat? Would you suggest this bat or the Louisville Slugger MLB Prime CG 110 for a primarily contact hitter?

The turn model is RB8. This Sam Bat Maple Wood Bat (RB8) Natural/Black Adult bat is Ryan Braun's signature model, and does not feature the same specs as a standard turn. The closest standard turn model you could compare it to would be a 271 with a thinner handle. With that thin handle, the bat isn't quite as balanced as a 110 turn like the Curtis Granderson Prime model. But both bats would be pretty good choices for a contact hitter. It totally just depends on what kind of handle thickness and taper into the knob you prefer.

Product Description

The RB8 is the exact model that Sam Bat designed for MLB slugger Ryan Braun to use in games. Now you can use the same quality bat as many professional players. Sam Bat! Some folks will lead you to believe that wood is wood, and that the brand does not matter. Others will tell you that the bigger the brand, the better the wood, because of their sheer mass of raw materials, and the ability to hand select the finest timber. We will tell you that is only the beginning. All Sam Bat timber is of the highest grade Hard Maple available in North America. Every bat to come out of the mill is made from the top 5% of Hard Maple Prime Grade Timber. 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. Sam Bat: The Original Maple Bat Corporation!

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".
