Our Transitional Series bats are cut from some of the same stock that our Pro Series bats are cut from, and the same certified manufacturing processes are followed. We believe that if you are paying for quality, you should get it, regardless of whether you are a youth player just excited to be at the park or a professional grinding out a living. Our craftsmen take great care in assessing the quality of each billet they receive prior to turning it into a bat. You can expect high-quality materials to be used to make your bat, which helps provide you with more confidence at the plate.
We are offering these bats finished in black, and engraved the same. All of the bats will be cupped, which provides better balance and will aid players in controlling the bat. By standardizing some of these options, it allows us to keep the price down for you, while still providing a high quality bat.
The GLB 271 TR is the classic, ever-popular 271 turn model scaled down for a transitional player. The GLB 271 TR is cut down to 30-32 inches in length with a drop of -4 to -5. As players move closer to -3 drop, it is important that they be able to make the transition with their swing in tact. The transitional models we provide, such as the GLB 271 TR, help players through this transition.
The GLB 141 TR is a scaled down model of the extremely popular PRO GLB 141. The GLB 141 TR is cut to a length of 30-32 inches resulting in a -4 to -5 drop. By providing transitional models, we believe hitters can continue to take advantage of the benefits of hitting with wood, without having to jump from youth bats directly to adult bats.
