Benefits of The Original Heated Bat Rolling:
- Deeper rolling process
- Larger sweet spot
- More consistent sweet spot
- Longer life span compared to standard rolling
- 1 hour process compared to 5 minutes
Heated bat rolling was started by ProRollers in 2012 during an experiment with a new BBCOR baseball bat. We were testing a new composite BBCOR bat after it had been rolled the old fashioned way, cold. We found that if we heated up the barrel of the bat prior to rolling it both perpendicular and parallel, it allowed the fibers to stretch even further since they were heated up and more pliable. Now that the fibers can stretch easier there is less negative stress on the walls of the bat so it also helps with the overall durability. Since the fibers are more flexible, it will lead to less cracking and longer life span, and who can afford a new $400 bat every 3 months. Heated bat rolling does take longer, approx 1 hour to complete from start to finish but is worth the added benefits of life span and performance.
We have seen an article written that states that heated bat rolling is detrimental and the fibers shrink back to their original form once they cool down. That article does not quite add up because if you roll the bat long enough in the machine to ensure proper break in, the bat gets warm from the constant pressure and friction. Either the person that wrote that article never rolled a bat, or they do not roll them in the machine long enough to properly break them in. Heated bat rolling also does no damage to the graphics or details on the bat. Some manufacturers are using flat paint schemes which nearly require us to heat them up to get a proper break in. When rolling a flat paint scheme bat, you can not roll it nearly as thoroughly without heating it up first. This paint scheme is becoming more common in the mid-upper tier bats so if they are not getting heated, you are not getting the full break in experience. We have also heard of companies that just roll the bat so it gets warm and call that heated bat rolling, THAT METHOD IS NOT TRUE HEATED BAT ROLLING. If the bats are not heated up prior to the rolling process the fibers will not stretch as deep nor have the same consistent sweet spot.
