If you are looking for or have any question on these awesome bats, post it here.

I am working with another board member on getting more of these babies into Canada.

Who is looking for one?

Honestly I can't answer this question. Can anyone else ???

I did swing the Catalysts back in Florida, it was a RI if I remember. And I didn't swing it enough to really get a feel for it.

Teedub has a 2010 (I think) ASA Z-1000 and I can only describe the sound as a "CLANG". IS the 2012 that I am hearing rave reviews about much better than the 2010 or the 2011? I didn't care for the feel or the sound or the performance of the 2010, though I didn't give it that many hits.

That's the first problem, "Didn't give it many hits" There is a big difference in the asa 2011 and 2012. It sounds like glass yes, but it;s easy to get to like the feel if you give it an honest chance. And it has top notch pop and distance

I didn't like the feel of it honestly. Maybe it was too new but I didn't like the feel on contact or the balance of it. Just can't compare to the rest of the bat bag.

That's cause Bluejay7 is sick bro!!! He can hit that with an OG Helmer if he wanted to... lol

But yes, the Z1000 has been picking up popularity around the diamonds recently, I know four guys that only swing these now, and swear by them so they must be decent... still no Combat IMO... LOL

Some guy on the Dodgers was hitting lazers with a Z1000 too... ;)

Yeah man, I kinda heard the storm but ate my Swiss Chalet and passed out. Thats a good BP diamond, nowhere to lose the balls.

Anytime you wanna hit LMK, I'm always looking to BP, especially with all my leagues winding down.

Sweetspot location? 1-piece or two?

bluejay7
08-25-2011, 10:40 AM
Sweetspot is pretty fair, twopiece but doesnt feel like any other twopiece ive swung before. As for Endload, talk to Gucci..I swing the balanced version. His 26oz is fairly heavy IMO for a 26oz...so id say its a half decent EL.

Love the utrip bat for sure, and glad to hear that 26oz is still kicking after 500 or more swings, and not blowing up in 100 :)

But I got a few ASA sticks that need swings for SPN masters/Mens provs and dunny..

Maybe I'll try to get my hands on an ASA version to add to the video..
It'll be fun! :)

Nice try! Came off your bench in Oshawa this year, at a stonecutter game.

But most people say something about a Z because of the way it sounds, other then Yak who is a classy person on and off the field, there is only one guy that plays on your team that I hit with from time to time. Are you calling him out ?

I don't know anyone who thinks you have a shaved Z1000 which I think you have been swinging all year.

When I first started all I heard was talk about my bats as well, which tends to come with people switching bats all the time as they tend to do when first starting and figuring out which bat is ideal for themselves.

I have hit with you a few times in the past and I know you can hit the ball well. I don't know what you swung in the past but with you sticking to this one bat I am sure everything has calmed down a lot.

Lets get together with BJ7 and a video camera and make a Z-Nation video.

Just hit with Lilirish79 and put about 40 hits on his 2012 27oz EL Z-1000.

I will say that the bat has great pop for only 50 hits or so on it. I didn't notice much handle flex. I still prefer my Psycho SE to this bat and I feel that this bat will favor someone with a smooth stroke instead of a hard violent swing.

All in all a good bat. Not sure about the durabilty or if I like the sound but if it fits your swing then I'm sure you will enjoy the results.
