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 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.
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). We also 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
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 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 / 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 substantially 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
Feel free to contact us should you have any questions on what shaving spec you should go with.
