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.  The comments below are tailored more to new in wrapper bats.  Bats that are mailed in used, we fully evaluate before performing the service.  A lot of times customers do not know the bat is already shaved or the bat is broken down internally.  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 MORE POWER YOU HAVE, THE HARDER THE BALL USED, THE FURTHER IT WILL GO PLAIN AND SIMPLE.  **

Level 1 Standard

This is our basic shave and roll service.  The word basic does not suggest not good or no performance.  Average distance gains are upwards of 30ft (some could see more).  Depending on the model, break in will be needed to achieve these distances .  We also suggest this shave level for team use or anyone looking for the best durability and longevity.  


Level 2 Aggressive

This is a slightly thinner shave than standard with a heavier roll.  Most bats shaved and rolled to this level are roughly 80% broken in straight out the wrapper.  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).

Level 3 Bat Doc Spec

This shaving spec is for those who want a bat that hits bombs.  At this level, durability is compromised. Most bats shaved to this spec will develop webbing within a few swings and should be 90% broken in straight out of the wrapper.  This will be a hard bat to put down and suggest limiting its use if you would like it to last.  Don't be afraid to swing it by any means, just understand the bat is very thin.  Average distance gains are upwards of 50ft (some could see more).

Stadium Spec (slowpitch only)

The Stadium Spec is our top of the line shave and roll.  EXTREME shave maxed out 100%, heat rolled and poly coat standard.  These bats will come 95% broken in and will need very little swings for it to stand up completely.  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.  Durability will be compromised, but the ball will absolutely fly.  Average distance gains upwards of 60ft.  

 Feel free to contact us should you have any questions on what shaving spec you should go with.
