Palisades WBL – GTSOH Bat
Price: $35 (Palisades WBL Store)
Size: 34″, 35″, or 36″ (we tested the 36″)
Construction: 3 piece; injection molded plastic barrel; medium hard plastic; wood handle; wood knob
Pros: The construction is very well done and this bat is extremely sturdy, especially when you compare it to an all plastic bat. Ours came in the 36″ length which will help when you’re chasing a curve ball breaking away from you. The entire bat feels solid and hits the ball really well. This bat makes us wonder how well our other ones would perform if we modded them the same way. Palisades did a great job with this bat and it is highly recommended.
Cons: The only negative we found with the bat is that the barrel seems to be a bit soft and would flatten out slightly after a few hits. Chad uses the Griffey bat as his reference for how much pop the ball has coming off the barrel and didn’t think this one was on the same level. I think it has a similar feel to the Grey MLB bat but is an all around better product.
Grade: A- (Jason’s Favorite)
