Ignite™ XS -3
High School and College Baseball - 2 5/8 Barrel
The Anderson Ignite XS -3 Adult Baseball bat is BBCOR certified and designed for the high school and collegiate player. The IXS features the TaperFlex contour and the Diamond Flex Alloy. Every component in the IXS design is calculated to work in concert to improve the feel and performance while boosting batspeed. Like all Anderson bats, the Ignite XS is hot and ready for game play right out of the wrapper.
The all-metal Ignite bat includes a singlewall barrel design that synergistically matches the TaperFlex contour to provide the best possible performance from a traditional singlewall-alloy bat. It may say singlewall but it’s more than the sum of its parts. It is the best performing and best feeling traditional singlewall-alloy bat you can buy.
The TaperFlex contour is designed to optimize the flexural and vibrational response of the bat by distributing the mass of the taper in such a way that a harmonic flexural response is achieved. When combined, the result is a bat that has superior feel, superior performance and a truly unique hitting experience.
The Ultra-Thin Handle is designed to maximize batspeed by allowing the handle to fit nicely into the batter’s fingers rather than in the palms of their hands. It is designed thin to make it easily customizable for each hitter. You can make the handle bigger by adding a thicker grip, but you cannot make it smaller once it is formed.
The Thin Sport Grip provides a tacky feel and supports the thin handle design by making the handle as thin as possible. The Sport Grip allows those that want a thicker handle to be able to simply overwrap it with another grip or with tape to customize the fit of their Anderson bat.
The patented Weldless-Ergonomic Knob adds weight where it is transparent to the swing. It improves the balance of the bat and maximizes the MOI while adding the additional distance that only mass in the right place can give you. The construction is patented and the shape of the ergonomic knob was designed in cooperation with a team of orthopedic surgeons to provide a safer, more comfortable feel.
The TruFlex Toughened-Lightweight Cap adds to the performance and feel of the bat by providing the support in the end of the bat necessary to maximize the energy transfer of the barrel to the ball while maintaining just enough flex to control the amount of vibration created at contact. The reduced weight in the cap improves the bat’s MOI.
A reduced Moment of Inertia (the effort necessary to swing the bat) is the object of all of the weight manipulation included in the overall design and the design of every component used in an Anderson bat. This attention to the structural details makes it possible to swing a heavier bat with less effort. A quicker, more powerful swing makes it possible to provide each and every player with Game Improvement by Design.
