Question Where do you buy the majority of your bats from?

Do you buy your bats from a retail store with receipt? Or do you get them from some dude. Or... other?

I know people buy from stores with receipts and always make sure they use up the warranty.

I don't generally break bats, nor do my leagues compression test - so I have no need to "break a bat" to use the warranty. I'd rather just keep my worked in bat, so I just buy from random dudes new and used.

That would usually fall under "Some dude" :p , you and I are in the same boat. The only time I buy new is when there's an awesome sale.

Mix of both, used from board bros, acquired via trade, or from retail (when National has a 25% off Friends & Family, Black Friday sales, etc.)

The key is, to buy bats you don't need because you aren't actually playing (but are still somehow addicted to buying bats) and then turn around and sell them at a huge loss sometimes only a few days later!

Most of the time, some dude...

Because...

1) Used (SFO, Kijiji, FB Group)

2) Raffle win

3) Teammates or league-mates


Then there's occasions where I will go to retail if the bat is on a good sale or an exclusive etc.
