The SAM BAT CD1 is one of the most popular models we make. This longstanding favorite is a great transitional model for players looking to switch from metal to wood. A classic rounded knob meets a straight handle, giving the bat a similar feel to aluminum. The CD1 is a regular barrel model with a straighter barrel and a relatively quick taper from handle to barrel. All SAM BATs are crafted from professional grade hard rock maple for outstanding strength, longevity and performance.
