Shave Specs

Shave Specs

HDBO offers 4 shaving specs for you to choose from.  We have shaved 1,000's of bats and have developed a custom tune for nearly every model out there.  Keep in mind every bat is different so we cannot generalize how much we remove per specification, but we can describe the ending result.  Bats that are mailed in used, we fully evaluate before performing the service.  For those instances where we do not feel comfortable shaving the bat to the requested spec, we will contact you to discuss best options.

**ALL STATEMENTS BELOW ARE ESTIMATES AND BY NO MEANS A GUARANTEE.**  BAT SPEED, WIND DIRECTION, BALLS USED, TEMPERATURE, ELEVATION, LAUNCH ANGEL AND BALL SPIN ARE ALL FACTORS THAT CAN VARY YOUR RESULTS.  THE USE OF THE WORD "UPWARDS" BELOW ELUDES TO A RANGE OF 0FT TO THE UPPER LEVEL PER SPEC.  THE DISTANCE NUMBERS MENTIONED IN EACH SECTION BELOW ARE ESTIMATES FOR SLOWPITCH, SENIOR LEAGUE -5 USSSA BASEBALL BATS AND -3 BBCOR BASEBALL BATS. 

* INFORMATION ON ESTIMATED RESULTS ON OTHER SIZED USA / USSSA BASEBALL AND GIRLS FASTPITCH BATS ARE TOWARDS THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE

 

Level 1 Standard

This is our "basic" shave and roll service.  The word basic does not suggest not good or no performance.  The bats will still perform noticeably better over a stock or rolled bat.  Average distance gains are upwards of 30ft (some could see more).  We suggest this shave level for team use or anyone looking for the best durability and longevity.  Most bats shaved to this level do not have any audible sound change.  


Level 2 Aggressive

This is a slightly thinner shave than standard with a heavier roll.  We do not suggest this shaving spec when used as a team bat if you would like it to last.  Average distance gains are upwards of 40ft (some could see more).  Some bats shaved to this level have a slight audible sound change, but nothing to drastic by any means.  Most bats shaved to this level would be where you would want to be to maximize performance / durability combination.  Reference back to the product description on each bat for our recommend level of shave to performance / durability combination.  

Level 3 Bat Doc Spec

This shaving spec is for those who want a bat that hits bombs.  At this level, durability is compromised.  This will be a hard bat to put down and highly suggest managing its use if you would like it to last.  Don't be afraid to swing it by any means, just understand the bat is thin.  Average distance gains are upwards of 50ft (some could see more).  ALL bats shaved to this level have a noticeable audible sound change

Stadium Spec / Showcase Spec

The Stadium Spec or Showcase Spec is for customers who wants to HIT the SH*T OUT OF IT!!!  EXTREME shave maxed out 100%, heat rolled and poly coat standard.  Because of the extreme nature of the shave, we use a very expensive PCD diamond bit to ensure the fibers and resin are consistently cut through out the bat.  Using less than ideal tooling with this level of shave will destroy your bat internally.  No one else in the country offers a service like this.  This is above and beyond any other shave service we offer.  Durability will be compromised, but the ball will absolutely fly.  Average distance gains upwards of 60ft.  ALL bats shaved to this level have a noticeable audible sound change

* USA or USSSA BASEBALL

ALL YOUTH USA OR -12, -10, -8 USSSA BASEBALL BATS DISTANCE GAINS CAN VARY GREATLY UPWARDS OF 40FT OF WHICH MOSTLY ALL BOILS DOWN TO SWING SPEED, MECHANICS AND BAT SELECTION ITSELF.

 

* GIRLS FASTPITCH

DISTANCE GAINS CAN VARY GREATLY UPWARDS OF 40FT DEPENDING ON SWING SPEED, MECHANICS AND BAT SELECTION ITSELF AS WELL.
