The E-73 has a flared knob and a handle that is .96″. This model has an extended barrel that is 2.5″. This is the model that Barry Bonds used. Composite bats are one piece wood bats with a fiber glass sleeve infused into the handle, leaving the barrel all wood for that extra pop. The fiber glass strengthens the handle an additional 20%. BBCOR approved. The E-73 is currently available in natural with clear-coat finish (not pictured). Check out our custom bats for more options!
