Generally, our hitters liked the pop off the bat when they squared one up. Few bats did better in those terms. And, despite being a one piece, the BBCOR KAMO felt manageable on mishits too. We think the heavier swing weight contributed to that as well as a proprietary composite DSB uses. Bigger, stronger hitters who want a stiff feeling bat that transfers max energy to the ball will like the KAMO. As well, those looking for something a bit different, and want to stand out, might find the Dirty South Kamo just what the doctor ordered. Note: Dirty South does NOT claim this is a 2019 bat. That is fair and reasonable. That said, our site uses a hierarchical structure that requires some year categorization because just about every other company does use the year. As such, forgive the references to "2019" below. We simply want our readers to know this bat is relatively new and they wouldn't be able to find it in our database and searches without a year attached.
The Dirty South Bat KAMO is a single piece composite bat. That is, it is made of one piece and out of a material that, to the layman, might best be described as a plastic. Composite barrel bats are not new to the industry. Some of the best we've ever hit have a composite bat. But the DSB Kamo is unique in that it is made of a single piece instead of two. DSB claims the KAMO's impressive feel is created by a unique composite built with a softer feel. We don't know have any particular insight to the manufacturing process of their composite versus another companies, but our experience with the bat did feel kinder on our hands than we first expected. In fact, of the 6 hitter we had use the Kamo BBCOR not a single one of them complained about hand sting.
