Usage notes

A batilo (literally hitting device) and a pilkoĵetilo (literally a ball throwing device) are used to refer to any piece of sports equipment used to strike a ball and can be used interchangeably (though batilo is far more common). Rekedo and raketo carries with them the sense of a piece of sports equipment with a handle below a large circular or oval striking surface. A tennis racket and a golf club are both batiloj, but neither a baseball bat nor a golf club is a rakedo. A raketo is also used to refer to a rocket or missile.
