Performance. Precision. Power.
ProXR is a radical departure from traditional bat design. It is distinguished by an ergonomically correct, angled knob that works with the batters hand to deliver ultimate performance, control and power. ProXR works with the changes that occur between the bat and the batter’s hands to deliver the best rotational swing possible. By reducing compression forces that fight a batters swing, ProXR delivers powerful performance advantages to the batter – more precise bat control, greater plate coverage and optimal power transfer from the hands to the ball.
Hand Made With The BestAt the heart of every ProXR bat is the best, hand-split ash and maple found anywhere on the planet. That’s not fancy copy writing – that’s a straight-up fact. We have a long-standing relationship with the best billet company in the business, Leatherstockings Hand Split Billets based out of upstate New York. Their company is located in the heart of the best hardwood forests in North America – these guys live and breathe billets for a living. Other bat companies won’t tell their loyal customers where they source their billets, but rather than make it a big secret, we want you to know what’s at the core of all ProXR bats – the best straight-grain, hand-split billets anywhere.
All ProXR bats are made in the U.S. from hand-selected, split (not cut), pro-grade, straight grain northern ash. For players looking for ProXR in maple it’s coming later this year. We have an upgraded finish with gloss black lacquer on the barrel, silver branding and an unfinished handle – you get an even better feel for the bat in your hands.
Unique to ProXR bats, our patented angled knob is carefully aligned with the grain to ensure the batters hands properly align with the grain of the bat. This feature ensures the batter contacts the ball with the proper grain of the bat ensuring optimum impact. Amazing wood grain combined with the ProXR angled knob technology and detailed craftsmanship means ProXR bats are the most advanced bats on the planet.
ProXR adult bat lengths come in 32”, 33” and 34” drop-three weight-to-length ratio.
ProXR youth bat lengths come in 28″, 29″, 30″ and 31″.
ProXR in the Major Leagues
The first hit with any angled knob bat (ProXR) in MLB history was by the New York Mets Mike Hessman on 9/5/10 – he’s the first player to use the ProXR technology in a regular-season game. Five days later, Prince Fielder began using ProXR. The ProXR design is the ONLY ergonomic bat design ever used in regular season Major League Baseball. As the innovator, ProXR earned the right to be in the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown – it’s the first and it’s the only.
