We measured and hit the Warstic Bonesaber and Warhawk 2 in a 33-inch BBCOR as to make an informed comparison. In short, our hitters preferred the Bonesaber’s feel although the actual performance didn’t bear out any advantage. Both hit the ball well. The only major differences are the differences in swing weight and the knob design. According to the 33-inch bats we measured, the Bonesaber swings lighter than the Warhawk. But, the Bonesaber should still be considered on the heavier side of balanced. The Warhawk is an end-loaded bat.
We usually have younger hitters take the bats. But, we had a dad who can swing take both of these bats in hand to get some data results.
We alternated hits and measured results on HitTrax. We found, after 30 hits, his average exit velocities were almost equal. We think that the most useful statistic to measure.
Max exit was in favor of the heavier swinging Hawk 2.
The Hawk 2 should be considered end-loaded bats, the Bonesaber is a heavier swinging balanced bat.
Both bats are built similar in the barrel. That is, they are single-piece aluminum built with a good-sized barrel and an above-average swing weight.
The major difference is the flared knob on the Bonesaber. It is what drives its unique feel. We’ve yet to hear from a hitter who did not like the Bonesaber’s handle.
