Plastic bats are easily the most durable choice for throwing bats. They do not wear out due to heavy use, making them popular with schools and group studios. Plastic bats do not absorb water and therefore won’t swell or de-laminate and the pin-holes remain true. It is, however, necessary to cut pieces free with a wire shortly after throwing as moisture will not be absorbed from the clay where it contacts the bat. If left too long, pieces will warp or crack due to uneven drying.
Made of solid plastic, textured on both sides for better clay adhesion during centering. Due to the small diameter of these bats, pin-holes are drilled 6” on center and an Adapt-A-Bat (C-120-017) is required to use them on wheels with bat pins spaced 10" on center. (Most wheels available today have bat pins spaced 10" on center.)
