The C243, the original large barrel bat, is made in this variation with a black high-gloss barrel and natural handle. As aluminum bats became a part of the game, the demand for large-barreled, thin-handled bats led to the popularity of the C243. Every large barrel turning model since has been a slight modification from this model. All MLB PRIME bats - made exclusively with the MLB grade wood, a standard met by only 3% of our wood - now feature EXOARMOR, a revolutionary finish that is twice the hardness of a regular bat.
