Some dealers didn't order the 2017 mamba and stuck with the nighthawks. Some will order the mamba for you if you want.
Some ordered all 3 bats.

I picked up the roboload. I was worried about the endload as people were saying it's heavier. I held the worth est and the roboload together and to me they are very simular. Looking forward to Saturday now.

I don't know what it is about the mamba.......but i love this thing. They haven't changed the swing weight at all. For me it swings beautifully. It has a very crisp feeling barrel. The barrels on the Mamba and Nighthawk feel very different to me. The only way I can describe it is like the difference between a mid kick hockey stick vs a low kick point. The Nighthawk is the Mid-kick where it soaks up the ball a little and then spits it out. You don't need as much effort to hit the ball hard. The Mamba is like the Low-kick where it doesn't pull the ball in as much but it releases it in a fraction of the time. You also need a little more swing speed to get the same distance but the harder you swing the farther it goes. The sweet spot doesn't feel as big as the Nighthawks but it is plenty big enough that its hard to miss. The only difference I've noticed since last year is that it breaks in quicker which is a good thing. At 300 hits my bat last year was nowhere near this good. This thing just came through the zone absurdly fast.
awesome good stuff might to pick on up then to match my NH

Well, I got out today. I must say it swings nice. First swing was over the fence(should of mic dropped). It was decent considering it was out of wrapper. I must say the sound when you hit is definitely distinct. Maybe got 70 hits on it, and it was opening up. I can see it being good after a few hundred. Weighting is close to the worth Mikens in my opinion.

All in all im happy with it. Definitely wouldn't say game ready in a 100 hits, but I'll put my time into it. Looking forward to more swings
