None. Their retail wood is garbage - especially the AP5's they sell to big box sporting goods stores - overpriced garbage covered in glossy finish.

One of my team mates just bought one. Paid $130 for it. I didn't have the heart to tell him there are better choices out there for half the price. I guess as long as he likes it is all that matters.

Agreed. I wont buy another since ive seen the quality of the ones at Dicks. I would buy a Mine bat instead.

While I like their profiles, I agree that the quality has worsened a lot. If you want a maple bat, get an Old Hickory.

I just picked up an Old Hick on friends recommendation and soo many new young stars using them, and I am a little under impressed. It seems not to have the 'pop' of a Louisville Slugger M9 or other bats.

It's funny. I quit using LS bats because the lack of pop. I tried companies like Rawlings, Marucci and Mizuno (high end models only) before settling down with Old Hickory. Out of those brands, the Old Hickory and the Mizuno have the best pop.

I have some MaxBats (191X 32in -2) that I think have great pop. A lot better than my mizuno maples. That being said, I don't have much experience with any other brands.

The only Mizuno maples with great pop are the made in Japan ones (Ichiro and Matsui models). The other ones are garbage.

Rawlings bats are garbage, like many companies you need only the actual pros bats, not just what is supposedly 'pro wood'. My Old Hick custom seems not so dense, but it hasn't been put to the challenge yet. Louisville Slugger IMHO are the best bang for the buck, due to how many bats they make and how many they make for pros that are available on second hand market. Their Prime are rocks. They also make good wood in different turning profiles which is great variety to choose from. Good M9's are amazing. Phoenix makes some really rock solid maple, but their profiles are a little off sometimes. MaxBats can be really solid too, but you have to like their style. Marucci seems the biggest gimmick out there, unless Chandler is crappy, cause they charge an arm and a leg...

Yup, MLB timber bats are another level from retail bats. You get a box of LS M9 1XX's and the maple is so dense and rock hard you can feel the difference just picking the bat up, and the pop is better than some metal bats out there.
