Mizuno constructs this bat with their top-quality Rock Hard Maple wood and even better, they compress the grains of the maple wood. By compressing the grains, Mizuno makes the surface of the barrel harder and if you connect well with a baseball on the barrel of this bat, it is going to go places...and it's going to get there quickly!
The 271 style turn of wood bat has to be the most commonly used wood baseball bat floating around amateur and professional ball diamonds. It is definitely going to have more of a balanced feel to it. However, contact and power hitters adore 271 style bats. It has a medium-to-slightly thicker handle plus a flared knob that seems to fit comfortably into a lot of players' hands. As well, batters seem to be able to control the 271 bats with relative ease while also generating fast enough bat speed that can send baseballs deep into the power alleys!
