I love 243 model bats and was wondering what people think about these companies I was looking in to.
Any comparisons?

I haven't used the 243 model, but Axis makes some fine bats. I have the i13 model, and it has really durable maple. No annoying over-glossy finish either. you cant go wrong with Axis.

Mine Bats all the way. They are extremely durable, I've had mine for almost a year now. Their pop is unreal, much better than maple, ash, or birch in my opinion. Also, I've never really heard one bad review, and the finish on them make them extremely comfortable.

Any idea of how easily or frequently these break?
Also where did you get yours from and what was the price?

I'm afraid I'm not qualified to state the breaking frequency, however it feels sturdy. I got mine from a tournament in RI for $99, but i know hittersinc has some of the models. I have a list with other models if you want to contact Axis directly.

Sam bat was the original creator of the barry bonds model 73. You can customize the bat on their website. I had the rb8 model and it lasted for about 10 months until finally breaking. If you don't like Sam bat then I suggest trinity, their birch bats are very good and durable. You can also customize a bat on trinity's website.

Old Hickory has a profile based on the C353. I would suggest you to email them to know the specs. I love their customer service, I just got a bat made to my exact specifications (it's a crossover between 3 different profiles, two of which are based on the 243).

Try a SISU birch bat. Great pop, beautifully balanced and impeccably finished. You will like.

For the last year I have been swinging custom Chandler bats made exactly like the RB8 Sambat and they are simply on another level. The ball just jumps off the bat, even when muscling one off the hands you get a good pop behind it. Chandler is my go to bat, but I also carry a Victus model in my bag incase I want a different feel than the RB8.

How long did it take you to get your Chandler? I ordered the Matt Kemp model earlier this month.

They're running around 4 weeks turnaround time, on their customs.

All the above are either over-priced or overrated, or both. I am not overly impressed by many of the new companies, especially the one's you listed in the original post. Marucci started this trend of the 'uber' bat, and it's just branding and marketing, with questionable results.
Phoenix, NYSTIx, etc. and others are MUCH better choices.

If you want a specialty Bat modeled after a pro, such as Bonds model, go with the original manufacturer of that profile.

If you are going with a traditional profile, just use Louisville Slugger and hunt down the right piece of lumber, with good grains.
