About Victus Sports, LLC
VICTUS SPORTS was founded based on the experience of bat makers Jared Smith and Ryan Engroff and the long term experience and business acumen of Gregg Balin. This combination of unique and creative talents resulted in the Victus Sports, LLC. Jared Smith, Vice President of Operations handles daily business dealings, bat finishing and sales. Ryan Engroff, Vice President of Production handles all bat production and oversees a staff of shop workers. Gregg Balin, CEO, oversees all aspects of the business including the finances and handles sales and bat finishing as well.
Through extensive testing, trial and error, the search for the finest hardwoods and finishes resulted in Victus Sports being vaulted into the national spotlight as the hottest new bat maker on the planet. Victus carefully sorts and weighs each billet upon arrival at its facility. After sorting by weight, all are moved into our humidity controlled billet room. Bats are turned from billets selected the same day to assure consistent weight and quality. All bats are turned on a CNC Lathe to assure exact precision dimensions. All bats and finishes are hand applied and examined often for quality control during the finishing process. Our laser engraver finishes the job adding the players name and or desired wording to the barrel along with a dozens of custom logo's and coordinated color inking.
Victus Sports uses only the finest Number One Prime Ash, Maple & Birch. While most bat makers claim to use "pro wood," or produce "pro models," for the non pro market, Victus Sports doesn't play that game. The term, "pro wood and pro bat" has been loosely adapted to make the public think they are getting Number One Prime Wood, when in most instances they are not. Using the best wood can add 15 or more feet to a driven baseball.
Have you ever squared up a ball only to be disappointed that it just didn't go as far as expected? It isn't your age or strength, it's the wood you are using. Victus is your solution.
Professional player approved, Victus Sports is considered creative and innovative. Special color finishes combined with all the unique logo designs and personalized engraving make Victus Sports the desired bat with professional, college, high school, adult, travel league and youth league players. Specialty logo's like the US Flag, Camo, Puerto Rican and Mexico Flag's and hot fluorescent's can be affixed to unique bat finishes like grays, slate blue, pink, orange, etc.
