World's Hottest Bats Review

World's Hottest Bats
12 years shaving bats is the longest out of all bat shaving companies. Longevity does say a lot about a company. They were the first to offer the rubberized coating.
Price is the highest of all companies reviewed and over twice of that which some bat shavers charge. World's Hottest bats has a substantial amount of negative reviews. They also have a low BBB rating of C-. No compression testing results. Only 1 level of shaving available.
World's Hottest Bats has been in the business longer than all companies reviewed. WHB has a lot negative reviews with a few positive reviews mixed in. With the highest price and customer issues, I would look for another option for your bat shaving.

Better Business Bureau rating:
World's Hottest Bats has a solid grip on the bat shaving industry with a #1 spot on google and a #1 placement with google ads. Getting to the top of a Google search takes time and effort or big money spent with SEO companies. I believe in this case it is a little bit of all 3 that has put them at the top. With that said, WHB must be doing something correctly or they would not have been in business for 12 years. They have come out with a few new things over the years. One of them is a rubberized coating to help with inner barrel flaking and durability. They also call their services a "re-engineering of bats" instead of bat shaving. As far as we can tell this service employs what most other bat shavers offer with their bat shaving services: bat shaving, Rubberized coating, bat rolling, end loading, ring removal. They also engrave bats which I thought was a pretty unique service. Offering bat shaving at $149 is the highest price in the industry, add rubberized coating and the price jumps to a whopping $164. This difference in price is too great and had to be mentioned. Aside from negative reviews and high pricing WHB seems to be a legitimate bat shaving company who has been bat shaving for a long time.

Guarantee of work:
Turn around time:
"If there is a problem with the Bat(s), other than cracking or denting, that is attributable to poor workmanship by World's Hottest Bats; World's Hottest Bats will repair the Bat(s) at no charge for up to six (6) months from the date of this Shaved Bat Purchase Form and Release."
World's Hottest Bats has one of the more solid guarantees as far as what they will take care of; one of the things they did not mention was replacement of the bat if it was damaged. Another downside is the 6 month period, which would not be a full season if something were to happen.
Reviews can be skewed to one side or another and most people only review when there is something negative that happens. Positive reviews usually means the company went above and beyond the normal. Most reviews are taken with a grain of salt and have to be analyzed by the reader as legitimate or not.

This company did exactly what they said they were going to do. They're prices are competitive and their work is 1st class. In addition, I commend their customer service department. They answered all of my questions and were with me every step of the way. My bat was rolled, shaved, and the end cap was replaced. As a result, I have a bat that really exceeds my expectations. It has a whole lot of pop now! I would highly recommend World's Hottest Bats!

Read the reviews. All is true about the company blames the customer for the damage. I had two bats damaged. The first one my son and I practicing hitting and on the fourth hit the handle broke. He is 10 years old and no way he has strength to break it. The second bat they put a flat spot on the bat. Same as other people on yelp. Randall Langton sent a note with the bat that he would replace the bat if I have any trouble. He lied!! He just keeps asking for photos. It's been two days short of a month.

Ordered a bat from this company a month ago and still have not received a bat or even a reply to repeated phone calls and emails. Highly disappointing customer service. I'm now relying on my credit card company to attempt to contact them as I was forced for the first time in my life to dispute a credit card charge. Only reason I gave one star was because I couldn't give zero stars.

I will never use these guys again.i sent them 2 bats and they shaved too much out of both of them and they both cracked within 5 hits of getting them back. They blamed it on age which both bats had minimal use so they sent me out a brand new bat which cracked within 3 hits proving it wasnt the age of my bats i sent in that it was a result of poor craftsmanship on their part. After mailing back the new bat in hopes of them owning up to it they told me tough luck they arent going to do anything about it which after alls said and done im out over 600 dollars in losses. They hove no morals at all and will not back their work after ruining your bats. Big red flag on these guys , i highly recommend not using them. continued next page>>>
