At ProBats, we want all of our batters to have the same competitive edge as the professionals, and it all starts with quality. Along with choosing the very best wood products, we utilize a very strict manufacturing regiment for each and every bat we make. And it is for this reason we steel press every singe bat we make.
So what is steel pressing and why do we do it?
The steel pressing process produces a dense and durable bat that is less likely to break or crack during use. Additionally, the compression process improves the bat's performance by increasing its strength and ultimately the ball’s exit velocity. This makes it a popular choice among professional and amateur baseball players alike.
Steel pressing wood baseball bats, also known as compression or hardening, is a process of compacting the wood fibers in a baseball bat. This process can provide several benefits to the baseball bat, including:
- Increased durability: Steel pressing helps to make the bat more durable by compressing the wood fibers, which makes them less likely to break or splinter during use.
- Enhanced performance: Steel pressing can also improve the bat's performance by increasing its overall hardness and reducing the bat's weight. This can result in a bat that can hit the ball further and with more power.
- Consistency: Steel pressing can also help to make the bat more consistent in its performance by reducing the variability between different pieces of wood.
- Uniformity: Steel pressing can also help to make the bat more uniform in its dimensions and weight, which is important for ensuring that the bat complies with regulations for use in official games.
