In the days of baseball past, professionals used to literally used tree logs for bats. The allowed length in pro ball is a 42″ bat. I’ve held some models used by the baseball giants and two common things where the length 35″ and the bats where heavy.
The c243 is one of those model designed after this thinking and those players. The barrel is the largest in the game and through the years has gone through some design changes. Hitting with the NYStix Empire 243 might alter the path of your swing when used initially.
Hand strength and swing discipline are important with this model.
Handle size metrics:
- .91” or below = Thin handle.
- .92 to .96 = Normal handle.
- .96 to 1.00” = Large handle
