Southbat employs Guayaibi wood, a little-known species from the Argentinean sub-tropical rainforests that boasts properties ideal for crafting high-performance bats. Guayaibi (pronounced Guah-yah-bee) wood has been proven to be harder than maple yet more flexible than ash, outperforming the top two traditional material choices for bats. In addition, Guayaibi is environmentally sustainable, and Southbat utilizes “selective logging” to minimize the effects of deforestation and promote further growth. Details of this practice may be read on the Southbat website.
Bat customization is not an option, but four traditionally popular turning models are stocked by Southbat in various colorways. In addition, a fungo and youth bats (both big barrel and 2 ¼-inch barrel) are offered, which feature weight drops similar to metal and composite bats – making for an easier transition for youth players.
