Cold Steel CS92BSS Brooklyn Crusher. "It's unbelievable. We're seeing eight to 10 bats break every game. Guys
are coming back saying they hit the ball on the sweet spot and it still
broke." This quote caught our President, Lynn C. Thompson's attention.
It's from an article in the Los Angeles Times describing how frequently
baseball bats break and nearly injure the players in major league games.
The article chronicled the debate currently raging among players over
which bat is better, those made of ash, which is lighter and slightly
flexible, or those made of maple which is heavier and stiffer. As he
read, Lynn began to suspect there might be a market for a baseball bat
that just couldn't be broken. What kid, let alone an adult, wouldn't
want an unbreakable bat? Now Cold Steel is proud to offer you our first
forays into the manufacturing of athletic equipment, the Brooklyn
Smasher® and the Brooklyn Crusher&trade.
Because they're precision injection molded out of
heavy-grade polypropylene, these bats just can't be broken. There's no
need to worry about shards of wood flying in your face. No matter what
you hit or how hard you swing them, they just won't break. And they're
durable too, they won't rot, crack, or splinter, or even fade. You can
treat them as roughly as you choose. You needn't worry about dirt or the
weather affecting them either since they're impervious to the elements
and clean up with soap and water. Try that with a wood bat and you might
They're versatile too. Like any other baseball
bat, croquet mallet, golf club or hockey stick, they can be used in an
emergency, as an extremely effective self-defense tool. You can keep one
behind the front door, under the bed, or in a car trunk and forget about
it until you need it. They can be used as game bats, practice bats,
warm-up bats, loaner bats, inclement weather bats, school or league bats
or kid's bats. They can also serve as a cross over trainers to develop
strength, agility and eye hand coordination for those studying Western
Saber Fencing, Kendo, Kenjitsu, Filipino Stick and Sword Fighting and
Chinese martial arts.
Best of all, they make good economic sense. With a
suggested retail price of $45 and $40 they're comparable in price to
good wooden bats, and since they're unbreakable they will last far
longer than any wooden bat on the market.
