The Grain width
The second manufacturing aspect to be kept in mind is the amount of grains the bat has. The ideal number of grains in a bat can be anywhere from 6 to 12 across the face of the bat.
It is, at times, said that a bat with narrow grain is a good bat but that is not entirely true. Such a bat will play good initially, given you are competent with it, but donít expect it to last long. These are the kind of bats that might get you a good 100 or 200 in an innings but be ready to play the next inning with another bat. Such bats will split very early. If you are looking for a long term relationship then, as mentioned earlier, a grain width of 6 to 12 grains is ideal in a bat once you run it in.
