Warstic Bonesaber

undefined

The Warstic Bonesaber dropped a USA version in 2023. It’s a single-piece aluminum bat with a tapered handle and a barrel performance that feels similar to most aluminum bats on the market. It has a light swing, great exit speeds, and is modeled after the 271 wood bat profile that does it all—power, gap, and contact hitting. It’s the perfect bat for a youth player who wants a clean visual aesthetic and ultra-light swing speed. 

Expert review: "The Warstic Bonesaber is a single-piece aluminum bat known for its unique flared knob. It resembles some of the wood bats that the pro ball players use. Which is why I think some players go for it. It's stiff and a little on the heavy side."
