Viper Bats is an American manufacturer of precision quality wood bats for athletes of all ages. When you buy a Viper bat you're getting the same high standards of craftsmanship used in the big leagues. That's because Viper bats are made for players by players using only Prime #1 Grade hand-split maple and ash billets. This process makes for a strong more durable bat every time. To this day every bat Viper makes benefits from the combined knowledge, experience, and love for the game that the owner and his son embody. Every bat still gets a swing test by a real hitter (the owner's son Chris), who is also their quality control expert. Every bat is a custom wood bat, built to the highest standards, every time. Viper feels that there shouldn't be high-quality bats that are only available to the pros. High-quality bats should be accessible to players in any league, at any age, and in any part of the country. Viper was started out of a love for the game of baseball, now it's your turn to fall in love with the game all over again with the best wood baseball bats you'll ever swing!
Hand-Splits are how bat billets were made in the old days. Hand-splits are just like they sound – raw logs split into triangle wedges and then turned into rounds.
Hand-splits make a better baseball bat every time because a split billet follows the face grain as well as the edge grain.
This creates a bat that is stronger and more durable, making Viper Bats the best value on the wood bat market.
