BRUCE BOLT’s Premium Pro Wood Bats are made from the highest quality Hard Maple trees in North America. Each bat is handmade by (in our opinion) one of most accomplished craftsmen in baseball and each bat proudly displays its ink blot test to prove the consistency and quality of the wood. These are "PRO GRADE" quality bats which most companies reserve for ONLY their Pro Players.
BRUCE BOLT offers a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, which doesn't necessarily mean that gear won't eventually fail, but instead, if you aren't happy with how long our gear lasted we will make sure to "make it right" for you. All we ask is that our customers understand that we are a small family-owned business TRYING to make the highest quality, best performing and longest-lasting equipment in the game. That said, we aren't perfect which is why we are always striving to "Be Better" and back up our products with AWESOME customer service. We just ask that our customers try to be fair and understanding and we will always try to make you happy that you worked with us and gave us your business.
Last but not least, as you know batting gloves are our main product and it's important to understand that batting gloves don't last forever. Batting gloves wear out faster for some players than they do for others. In fact, we have college and pro players who brag that our gloves last more than 2-weeks, but we also have parents of 12-year-olds that get upset when they don't last for 2 seasons. What we have learned is that everyone has different expectations based on their prior experience. However, it's important to consider that as players grow, they start to sweat more, swing harder, train longer etc. which affects the wear and tear on the gloves. So a 13u or 14u player who used to only go through 1 pair of Franklins a season may start to go through 4 or 5 pairs of Franklins a season, but only 2 pairs of BRUCE BOLT BGs. The point is that we just ask our players and parents to be reasonable with their expectations and understand that our goal was to make the highest quality and best fitting gloves in the market and that the durability was just a natural extension of that. If our goal was to make "bulletproof" gloves, we would have made them out of Kevlar :).

Our gloves are the same size as most major brands (Franklin, Nike, UA, Marucci etc). For the most accurate sizing, determine the size of your current gloves as a guide. If your current glove fits, then that is your BB size. If it's too small, you've probably grown, and you should go up a size. If you don't know, we'd suggest going to a local sporting goods store and trying on Franklin or Nike gloves.
If the suggestions above aren't options, try our glove size chart below.
AND, if you do order the wrong size, just go to our SIZE EXCHANGES & RETURNS page, and we'll get you the right size ASAP.
