YOU GOTTA LOVE THE INDIES.
The little guy fighting to make it, the little dog in the fight. Warstic is the little dog. Volume wise, they’d be in the Pomeranian range. But mindset wise, they’re somewhere between a Mastiff and Clifford the Big Red Dog. They take pride in this imbalance, and ask those who swing their bats to do the same. They’ve managed to do something to the woodbat realm that hasn’t been done in a while- differentiate themselves, thanks to the ‘Wartip’ finish on their bats, where just the last 8″ or so of the bat is finished, and instantly, from across the ballpark, you know what kind of bat is being swung. This rates fairly high on the marketing cool scale, but me being a fundamental baseball guy, you need the meat to back it up, or you’d be Nike Baseball. There again, Warstic delivers. They offer some premium Ash and Maple bats, with customizable options up and down the bat, which is something all of us neurotic ballplayers can appreciate. Barrell size, handle thickness, handle shape, over a dozen stain color options, and the full range of sizes to accommodate every spot in the lineup. Do yourself a favor and check out the Raven Foot and War Buffalo models- very cool. These bats range from $65 to the basic Ash all the way up to $122 for the manliest Maple.
