Looking for something off the beaten path? The V353 is for a special breed of baseball player. It has a 2 33⁄64" inch barrel and a 1" handle. When dealing with a massive barrel such as a V353, it is important to have a thick transition to keep the bat in one piece, and that's exactly what you get with this model. This bat isn't for everyone, but if you want a maximum barrel and maximum handle then look no further. This is exactly what you are looking for.
