The Grade 4 English willow is handpicked to create our Astral Range of bats. TheAstral features an enhanced duck-bill profile. Each piece of willow is carved by hand, offering the most popular shape in recent years, generating feather-lite pickup. The designed profiles have minimum scalloping, adding to the powerful rebound from the entire face of the bat. Individual checks in our double-pressing procedure ensure that each Astral performs like a professional bat. These sublime pieces of willow are finished by hand and their edges rounded to obtain a truly exquisite work of craft. The stickers are matched with a white dynamite grip, making a bat-like no other in the market. All Astral are protected against moisture by a clear solution, allowing the ruler-straight grains to beautifully run across the toe.
