Bat rolling is a process that can add incredible pop and distance to any softball or baseball bat. Everyone knows that bats get hotter after about 500-800 hits. The trouble is, by the time you have put that many hits on the bat it is well on it’s way to being worn out. By rolling your bat you can enjoy the bat’s maximum potential from the very first swing without putting all the wear and tear on it.
The bat is placed between two rollers and then pressure is applied so that as the bat passes through the rollers the bat’s fibers are stretched out. This causes the fibers to become more flexible which greatly improves the bat’s trampoline effect when the ball hits it resulting in increased batted ball speed and distance. It will make the sweet spot bigger and much more consistent as well.

OK, so we’ve all realized by now that bat rolling is a huge help in breaking in a bat. The problem is that bats still need a certain number of hits even after rolling to completely break in that last 20%. Even rolled and shaved bats typically still need a certain number of hits to open up completely. What we have done is created a way to avoid the need for those hits. We have developed the tooling and programming to use CNC technology to accomplish this. The CNC machine slowly rotates the bat while pulsating rubber arms impact the bat with the precise amount of pressure. (We apologize but due to the proprietary nature of this technology and the tendency for other companies to copy our ideas we cannot show pictures of this setup.)
