Barrel: 2-5/8" Handle: 15/16" Knob: 2" standard knob.
The 243 is the “big boy” of wood bats. It has the largest barrel available in wood bats with almost 7” of parallel walls. This very large barrel design is preceded by a pronounced negative taper to the handle. Most of the weight of the 243 is at the end of the bat and balance can be an issue. Also, the 243’s large size means that in order to keep the bat in the -2 range, a less dense billet of hardwood has to be used. This resolves the issue of breakage commonly associated with large barrel bats. That being said, the 243 is the premier wood bat model for experienced wood bat swingers. It is not a bat for beginners as it is top heavy and can lead to dropping the barrel in the swing.
