Differences between a vertical material and a mainstream wood -made bat material
There are three mainstream wooden bat materials: Aodamo, White Ash Maple. Speaking of wooden bat materials, many people think of these.

It has excellent elasticity and has been gaining popularity of Japanese professional baseball players for a long time. Aodamo is said to take more than 70 years to become a bat material. For this reason, the price of bat using Aodamo is soaring as a material.

Birch materials are ideal for manufacturing light wooden bat
In recent baseball worlds, "light bat" has become popular regardless of professional or amateur. Most of the most commonly distributed wooden bats are 880g or more, but the number of wooden bats of 850 to 880g has increased.
It is said that the reason for seeking light bats is that the idea of "how strong and sharp swing can be made" and "whether you can make a swing to hit a strong ball" has spread throughout the baseball world.
In fact, "full swing", which is found in Japanese professional baseball, has been established in Yuki Yanagida and Masao Yoshida. In elementary and junior high school baseball teams, the number of leaders teaching "powerful swing using the whole body" has increased regardless of the size of the body.
In recent years, the idea of diet and body building has changed, and the number of players with large body has increased. Among these players, the number of players who use light bats to make sharp and strong swings is increasing, and there are also appearance that introduces the theory of hitting, mainly SNS.
These"Burch wood" is attracting attention in the rising flow of "light bat".is . Burch materials can also make a bat with a strong repulsive force even in light weight setting.

Reasons for realizing light weight
GALEWeight 855gThe reason why the weight reduction was realized was that it took advantage of the unique characteristics of the vertical material.Scientifically prove "strength" as a batThat's because I was able to do it.
Ball Park Dotcom measures MOI numerical values for all bats produced.
* MOI numerical value = [mass] x [radius two square]
MOI numerical values are "inertia moments", and simply indicators represent "ease of rotation and difficulty of objects."
The lower the value, the easier it is to rotate, and the higher it is to rotate. In the production of GALE, only those with high MOI figures are commercialized. By doing so, it was possible to make a bat production that would not lose even if it was light.
The vertical bat "GALE" is recommended for such people!
