ProRollers announces its new Patriot Bat Rolling Machine with adjustable torque system

If you are ready to lead the pack and change your game, the latest innovation at ProRollers is here for you. Our newly designed 2017 ProRollers Patriot – with an adjustable torque system – will revolutionize the bat rolling service world. With never-before-seen ideas, the Patriot will provide a more consistent and even bat rolling service with the ease of adjusting your power on demand.

In 2018, changes are coming to the bat industry. ProRollers is set to stay ahead of the game with our newly designed Patriot system. Not only will the Patriot ensure that each bat is evenly rolled with consistent pressure throughout the entire sweet spot, but it also features an adjustable torque system.

Why is this important? Not all bats are created equal and not every set up is right to get you the best performance. Bat rolling service businesses like ProRollers need to be able to meet your specific needs when your bat is in our roller.  Up until now, this was not an option. However, with the Patriot, if you are rolling a BBCOR bat you can roll it with ease by sliding the handle to the MAX TORQUE position and roll away.

For example, say our experts at ProRollers have a fast pitch bat to roll. It’s no problem: We set the handle to the middle position and it’s a perfect bat rolling job – every time.  The adjustable torque system of the Patriot lets you have the flexibility to roll any type of bat on the market with ease and consistency.

The Patriot will do perpendicular as well as parallel bat rolling, but with a never-before-seen design that will apply even pressure throughout the entire barrel.  We have been developing this machine for more than a year and are almost ready to launch.

The Patriot will be the first self-leveling machine to apply consistent pressure on the entire barrel, no matter the sweet spot size.  This has been impossible on previous machines due to design limitations.  With a redesigned top plate and weight distribution system, even the junior big barrels that are a complete taper will roll evenly with consistent pressure.

The plastics are the heart of the roller and we used nothing but the best.  All of the new Patriot roller plastics feature more grip with NO slip or flex — even under the toughest bat rolling conditions.

This improved roller setup means you can push the limits of your rolling even further without marking up the bats or having them slip in the roller.

Couple the new tough plastics with our adjustable torque system and what you have is the Patriot providing more even pressure with no pain. That’s because we have designed the Patriot to be easy enough for anyone to turn the side handle with enough pressure to break in most bats.  Better design means better performance from your bat with more jump and distance on each hit. And isn’t that why we are all here?

Every machine is built here in the U.S.A. with domestically sourced steel.  We have used 3/8″ solid steel welded framework in the Patriot which means it will take any bat you can throw at it and spit it back out with glorious results.

A solid steel construction and powder coated frame means the Patriot will stand the test of time and look good for years to come.   Due to this high manufacturing standard, we back each Patriot machine with an industry-leading two-year warranty.

At ProRollers, we were the first in the industry with heated rolling and we were first in the industry to perform compression testing on EVERY bat. And now, with the Patriot, we have the first bat rolling machine of its type. We are always innovating.

New Composite & New Models = More Testing For Proper Break In

It’s the start of summer, which means one thing in the baseball world…new bats!  All the great performing models from 2015-2016 are being upgraded with new composite blends, new connection pieces, and new end caps.  With all this new technology and changes in how the ball reacts coming off of the bat, we have upped our testing procedures.

Home Run

We make sure each and every bat that ships from ProRollers is broken in properly and is game ready.

New Isn’t Always Better

Many new 2017 bat models are using stronger composite mixes, due to premature failure in the 2016 models.  This will help with the bats breaking before they should, but the tradeoff is an initial performance decrease.  2017 models may seem dead or have no pop when they are brand new. When they are heat rolled, it stretches the fibers, and produces much better results when you step up to the plate.

Heating Up

Heat is essential in the proper rolling of these bats.  We have found that now more than ever, this new composite mix allows the fibers to stretch even further without breaking, but they do take time to get loose on their own.  This is the exact reason we test each new model on our compression testers, in the batting cage for live response, and in the Xtreme machines we use.  This triple checking of the break in requirements on new models is to make sure that you don’t need to experiment on the diamond or be frustrated with the slow break in time of new bats.

Indoor testing facility

To optimize our bat rolling service, we are using this indoor test facility to put all of our work into action. We are making sure we know exactly what happens when the ball meets the bat.

Hit a home run with a compression tested bat

It’s 80 degrees, but the crisp breeze of a summer evening cools the crowd as the sun finishes its descent to the west. Harsh lights blanket the field and an eerie silence ensues as you start the slow, confident walk to the plate. The man at the mound shows no sign of deflation as he sizes up the scene approaching from the dugout. Your position is set. Your bat is raised. Your confidence is high. ProRollers already hit a homerun for you. Now it’s your turn…

It’s hard not to be confident at the plate when you know ProRollers heat rolled and compression tested your new bat before you stepped into the game. No wiggling in the handle, no loose end cap, just a hot clean bat to enhance your performance and set you apart from the competition. Do you know what sets us apart? We compression test EVERY bat more than once.

After taking an initial reference photo, we put the bat through our heated rolling process which can take anywhere from 1-2 hours depending on how the bat responds. During the rolling process we compression test the bat to ensure everything is working. Once the final pressure rolling stage has been completed, we give the bat one last compression test with a picture. This is to dramatically show the level of break-in compared to where we started. Without this compression testing service we provide, there is no way to visually tell the bat is properly broken in.

Compression testing ensures the bat you buy or send in is broken in properly and completely.  Check out our full selection of heat rolled and compression tested bats or send us yours to roll and test before the season gets into full swing.

You play hard, you hit home runs, you love to win. We help your confidence as you walk to the plate.

Get the best new bat technology before spring training

Groundhogs and warm days mean that spring is almost here, and a new baseball season is nearly upon us. As exciting as the start of the new season is, there have been technology improvements by nearly all bat manufacturers to improve performance and durability, and baseball bat rolling can help you get the most out of new bats and old bats you already own.

New technology in composite wrap layering, new 3 piece connections, and upgraded end caps all lead to better performance on game day, but that end can be a long way off when a new bat is the centerpiece of the technology. New bats already require a long time to be broken in, and the latest technology makes the break-in period even longer, unless you enlist baseball bat rolling services.

New composite mix and structure designs mean that your new bat will perform even better than last year, once it is broken in properly and compression tested to ensure results. Every year manufacturers struggle to stay on top of on the game, which is great for player, but it also means more work for you or your child to get that new bat to perform at its top level.

Here at ProRollers, we can see that initial compression tests show most new bats are testing at an even higher initial PSI than their 2015 counterparts. In the real world, that means these bats are even stiffer out of the wrapper and will take longer to see maximum results from standard break-in practices. A stiff bat means less distance and less exit speed, resulting in a ball that will not make it through the infield as quickly. Bat rolling is the key to reining in that long timeline.

Baseball bat rolling for new bats

ProRollers has nine years of experience in heated bat rolling with test results to back up our work and guarantee the results you need to step up your game. We test every new model released both before and after our heated rolling process to obtain measurable results. Let us take the guesswork out of choosing your next new bat.

After Christmas Sale on Bat and Glove Conditioning

So you finally got it!
You have been reading every review, looking at every picture you could get your eyes on but now….NOW you have your hands on it. Somehow Santa knew that you had been wanting – no, needing – a new bat or glove for the spring. Now that you’ve taken the shiny plastic off of it, you realize, you have to break it in if you want to get the most performance out of it.
Well good thing for winter break for most sports, and ProRollers is here to save the day. See, all of these new toys are great, but we all know that in order for it to fit the best, hit the best, or for your confidence to be sky high, they need to be worked on.
You have a couple days off now to enjoy the holidays, so box up that new toy while you still have the box and send it to us to do the hard work for you.
If you send us your bat, we can compression test to see where it is now, then heat roll it thoroughly. Then we compression test every bat a second time to ensure proper break in.

New gloves are even worse. Good luck squeezing that new glove closed without hammering on it for a week, unless you send it to us to break in properly and form a nice pocket. We will condition the glove, slightly steam it to open the pores and condition it again while warm. We form each glove with a mallet to ensure proper fit for each fielding position.

We still have our holiday pricing on all services, and if you send more than one bat, it gets cheaper … so grab a friend. We provide before and after pictures on all items sent into ProRollers to ensure proper fit and break in.
