Im 6'0 and 190 lbs and more of a power hitter. Would you guys recommend the JB19, the AP5 or the CUTCH22?

KG Expert ·Nov 16, 2011

8796

What is the weight in this bat?

The AP5NB has an approximate -3 length to weight ratio. Because wood has a different consistency from alloy or composite, the weight will be an approximate weight, not exact. A -3 length to weight ratio means the 31 inch will weigh approximately 28 ounces, 32 inch will weigh approximately 29 ounces, 33 inch will weigh approximately 30 ounces, etc. All you have to do to find the bat’s approximate weight is subtract 3 from the length of the bat to find its weight in ounces (i.e. 33 – 3 = 30 ounces). Because wood is a different consistency, that weight may vary by a half ounce or so.

ash or maple for power hitters?

Maple is a harder would, you should get a little more pop off of a maple bat.

Do these bats break very easily?

Marucci's "Bone-rubbed" process does make the bats more durable. But as with any bat, reasonable wear and tear, amount of use, some weather conditions, play a factor. But no, I don't believe it will break easily.

how heavy is this bat? is it a standard -3?

With wood, it isn't as exact as metal bats are with weights. Due to the moisture in the wood, the weights vary between a -2 to a -3.

Is the 33 inch bat 30 oz, are these drop 3's?

They are approximately a drop 3.

Looking for a -3 and I am leaning towards this bat. However, while your site says it is approximate -3 another site tells me that it is a -2. Help me understand the two different descriptions.

With wood bats, it is harder to be exact as with metal bats, on the weights. Moisture in the wood, and the types of wood play part of disparity. With adult bats the weights are approximately a -2 to a -3.

Is it possible to get this bat at 30 inch length?

Unfortunately, Marucci does not make this bat in a 30 inch model. Not many adult wood bats are available in a 30 inch model, but a few are: Louisville HM125BH, Rawlings 225LAP, Louisville M9C271BHC and Louisville M9C271NC.

Just wanted to say love this bat i've been hitting with it for a couple of weeks (borrowing my friends) but just wondering do these bats come in a variety of colors for ex: do you guys have one that has a black handle and pine barrel?

Unfortunately, the only colors we have are the ones that show on the website, since this is a players model most manufacturers will only use the colors that the player uses.

It's changed a bit over the years, but most recently, Albert has been using a 34 inch bat that weighs right around 32.5 ounces.

Is this bat BBCOR certified

Wood bats are not required to meet BBCOR standards. This is legal for use even though it does not have the BBCOR stamp.

My son is 12 years old and has been told to get a wooden bat for a tournament. Is this a good one to begin on or are there others you recommend? he is tall and strong.

The AP5NB is an adult bat and might be a little heavy for a 12 year old. I would recommend the Marucci Bat Co. Maple Wood Bat: CU26YB Youth model.

Why aren't you selling the 32" model?

We do sell the AP5NB in 32". However, we are currently out of stock as of 9/27/11. The 32" bats should be arriving in the next two weeks.

Do you think the ap5nb or the jh22 is a better bat

That depends on your preferences as a player. Barrel size will be the same. The AP5NB has a slightly thicker handle than the JH22. The JH22 will feel slightly more end-loaded compared to the AP5NB. Both are made from the same high-quality maple wood.
