I have both in 28 EL. I can't comment on durability as neither has very many hits. I have also only hit them indoors but they both feel equal as far as performance goes and feel/weighting.

Yes, these guys are correct, the 11' is pretty hot, just not as durable as the 12's. You cant go wrong with the 12's for the price (approx $200 on here)

I was quoted $175USD

However they were including free shipping in the US for 159, so they are adding an extra $16 bucks to ...each.... bat for shipping, seems slightly steep shipping wise imo., plus the potential for duty.

If I am not mistaken they ship via USPS so there are no duties and brokerage. Bought a bunch of stuff off of SBF and have never had to pay duites and brokerage.

$16 to ship a bat from the US to Canada isn't steep at all. I spend that on shipping bats within Canada depending on the location. Then again I usually ship expedited with extra insurance too.

I agree with googles here. Usps wont hit you with duties. Only ups and fedex. And $16 is not much to ship international. Even if it was, you would still be getting a niw bat with receipt for less than $200 to your door. You cant beat that. And isnt te dollar up right now? Take advantage people!

You won't be hit necessarily for Brokerage. You'll be hit with duty (taxes) on the declared amount. If it's declared for $159, you'll pay the taxes on that. Sometimes it gets through, and most times it doesn't unless you're declaring it for under $40-50.

My point boys, was they were including shipping (guessing 9-10 dollars down there, but adding another 16 for each bat to Canada, so .. you're looking at what 26+ per bat.
I can ship to California, Texas or Florida for that, fully insured.

If I got two bats, over 50+ to ship for a travel time of approx. 3ish hours. , not great, and would likely hit duty coming from SBF.
I like the price point, but would have hoped for a break due to short distance, or for two bats at once, not pegged each at a flat rate.
Again not a bad deal, but have to be careful with no US addy, and to expect duty.
Maybe YT will do our orders on his addy. ... lol.
