Gorgtech Secret Bats are the ultimate min-max blue weapon for foam fighting sports. This shouldn’t be your only foam weapon but it will be your favorite!
We are very proud to introduce the secret bat brand new cutting-edge foam tech for full force contact games. Used primarily in games requiring a min weight of 12 ounces, Dagorhir and Belegarth, but also perfectly balanced to meet the needs of non-min-weight games like Darkon.
The secret bat cover is a nice gunmetal grey and due to its necessity to this build, there are currently no other color options available. The secret bat covers weigh 60% lighter than classic bat covers. They are availalbe for reorder. #colorsareheavy
THE TOP OF THE LINE
Gorgtech secret bats are all handmade by us, each one meticulously balanced and tweaked to be the best bat you’ve ever felt in your hand! These are high-end weapons for the high-end fighter. For those wishing to be at the very top of the foam arms race, and they are balanced enough even the most competitive fighters will understand the work and tech that went into them being the best boffer bat on the market today.
This round bat (cylindrical striking surface) has taken our team a substantial amount of time to research and develop how to have a very durable foam design while incorporating a robust stabbing tip and the goal being a just above min weight weapon while lowering the perfect balance point to 1″ above the handle of the weapon in all 3 sizes 32″ 34″ and 36″.
To start with, we used the tried and true .524 kitespar for its durability and to save you on the cost of very high-end cores. We then replaced traditional rope wrap with a wooden handle dropping another couple ounces to drop the balance point even lower. We also have the bottom 2/3 of the foam striking surface made of a lighter weight foam as the majority of your hits will be in the durable top third of the striking surface, dropping the balance point even further.
Additionally, the tape used on the bat itself is 25% lighter than the traditional tape we use, again, dropping that balance even more. And lastly, but the most difficult to make happen was our gorgtech counterweights. We removed the traditional bolt and dropped the counterweight entirely below the user’s hand. Making everything about these 100% new and never before seen tech inside our games.
