The M9 series is constructed using professional-grade, handpicked maple. Maple stands out as a dense timber with greater surface hardness than ash, leading many players to believe it gives them a sizable bump in performance. Due to its close-grained timber, maple bats are less prone to the flaking found on barrels of ash bats.
