What are your thoughts on whether Alloy or Composite is best? Simply put, which one is better?
Generally composite bats will maintain their peak performance for a longer period of time than an alloy bat will, however composite bats will require a break in period whereas alloy bats are hot right out of the wrapper.
What is the difference between Alloy and Composite? My son is 9 years old, 4'9", 94lbs and I'm trying to determine if the 2013 Omaha is right for him. Thanks
Alloy and Composite are two categories of materials that manufacturers use to make their bats. Alloy is a term used to describe a blend of metals that is shaped into the form of a bat, while Composite is where fibers are interwoven to make a very strong material. The main difference between the two is that composite bats require a break in period to reach their maximum potential, while alloy bats are hot right out of the wrapper. However, generally composite bats maintain their maximum potential for a bit longer than an alloy bat will.
