2012 TEST RESULTS OF GUAYAIBI (Patagonula Americana) WOOD STRENGTH
“Wood Strength” as defined by Bear Valley Bats for baseball bats is what is commonly known as “Impact Strength.” We differentiate “Wood Strength” from “Wood Hardness,” (as should all makers and consumers of baseball bats) in that “hardness” is the rating of the surface resistance to indentation using the Janka Test.
Over the last few years Southbat has been working to bring the best quality Guayaibi wood bats to the market. However, that hasn’t been our only only goal. We also have been working with experts in Argentina and within the local government entities in the Argentinean forests to become and remain environmentally sustainable. This includes finding new ways to minimize our carbon footprint, while accounting for environmental considerations within our financial projections.
