How do I get my bat to pop more?
Shave the inside walls of the bat with a metal file or lathe. Do not scrape more than a millimeter out of the barrel. You are looking to increase the trampoline effect of the barrel, not make it brittle to break. Pop the cap back onto the top of the bat.
What is a juiced bat?
Bat Juicing is a term used by most for the bat rolling or shaving processes. Juicing a bat is done to primarily increase the performance to maximize the distance of your hits. This has been around for MANY MANY years in one form or another. We don’t recommend this process as it can ruin your bat very quickly.
How do you juice a baseball bat?
Ways to Juice your Bat Shaving involves thinning the inner walls of the bat and rolling involves rolling the bat through pressurized rollers to break in the bats fibers. These two processes help to increase the flexibility of the bat.
Can you clean a softball bat?
Take a washcloth with mild soap (not hand soap!) and tap water. This is the most common way to clean a bat and, depending on the stubbornness of the stains, it can be very effective. Wipe your bat with a soft, clean cloth to brush away any loose dirt and grime. You could also use an old sock or a paper towel.
Is rolling a softball bat illegal?

What’s the difference between end loaded and balanced?
End-loaded bats have more weight toward the end cap, more and have a relatively higher swing weight for that reason. More balanced bats have their weight distributed more evenly and have a relatively lower swing weight for that reason.
What does shaving a softball bat mean?
Bat shaving is the process of removing the bat’s end cap and thinning out the inner walls in order to increase the trampoline effect. Shaving a bat shortens a bat’s life because you’re making the walls of the bat, which help create durability, thinner.
Will a shaved bat pass a compression test?

How do you break in a composite bat with a rubber mallet?
Take your mallet and bat outside in warm weather conditions; the bat can crack in the cold. Hang the mallet from a strong piece of string, wire or leather so it dangles in an open area. Swing the baseball bat and hit the face of the rubber mallet each time.
Should you clean your bat?
