StudioPro Bats


Studio Pro 3/8 Inch Medex Bats

StudioPro 3/8" Medex Bats

These bats offer greater rigidity then our tempered hardboard bats, but with similar absorbency. StudioPro's versatile Medex bats are an excellent choice for all kinds of studio environments.

These Medex bats have a great clay adhesion and bottom drying. Their increased rigidity keeps pot rims true when lifting them off the wheel head.

Bats should be cleaned and stacked or stored vertically on a bat rack after use. Do not soak wood bats of any kind. Pots should be wire cut from the bats after throwing and removed when they are leather hard. The remaining pad of clay should be scraped off before storing. Occasional sponge cleaning is fine

Studio Pro 1/4 Inch Plastic Bat Adapter
Studio Pro 1/4 Inch Plastic Bats

Studio Pro 1/4" Plastic Bats

They're easy to care for, have great
design details and are extremely versatile. Plastic eliminates warping issues which makes these bats perfect for schools and art centers where wet pots are often left covered on bats for a long time.

These Plastic Bats are textured on both sides so clay adheres equally well on either surface: a true "two-sided" bat. Rounded or "bull-nosed" edges provide durability and easy lifting. They are cut from a high-quality marine grade High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), which is produced using a patented extrusion process. This ensures perfect flatness of every sheet and every bat!

Dirty Girls ROUND Bat system w/10 inserts

 Our new Round Bat Insert System is the best! It comes with one master bat made of an exterior grade wood material that is highly water-resistant and durable and 10 ROUND inserts that are a full 7.5" in diameter. You can throw any pot with a base 7.5" or smaller. I throw 90% of my pots on this system. It saves tons of shelf space! Our inserts are 30% larger than competitors!

There is an shallow cutout under the insert tab for placing a wooden tool to pry up the bats. There are also cutouts across from each bat pin hole on the underside so you can easily lift the master bat off the wheel!
Extra Inserts are sold in sets of 10.

Do not leave submerged in water. Any wood based product left submerged in water will degrade and warp, so be nice to your bat system and gently clean the components and set them out to dry either on their sides or at a diagonal, just not stacked. If left stacked when fully wet, the inserts will swell in the center. They will dry out flat again, but it will take time!
