Don't get me wrong guys, wasn't bashing BP Hero at all.

Just stating a fact that his top 5 are likely biased by who sent him what or etc...

I totally agree with you WTP - Saw much of the same on the golf side of things back when I was in that industry.

Robotic & factual testing would be pretty cool though. In golf there is a machine called the Iron Byron that is more or less a perfect swing they can set up and get factual data. Even then, it doesn't account for things like feel and such.

Feel is always a huge factor IMO and so subjective to the individual.

I always disliked LS "wet noodle" feel - But so many others love it.

This list is junk...sorry
5 Bryson Baker Flex... not one of these bats did I see all year
4 Freak Platinum...ok no issue
3 Pure Sports Integrity...has anyone heard of this
2 2017 watermelon...the 2016 watermelon is WAY better than the 2017. And if you search his 2016 top 5 list, the 2016 watermelon didn't even make it!
1 Freak 30...decent bat but there were still many bats swung over the Freak 30 this past season!

Worth EST didn't even make the list???

It's his personal favourites list. Pure Sports is a newish company in the States. I've never used one, so for all I know it's the best bat ever made.

In his review of the EST he says that the performance is great, he just doesn't like the feel of it.

Such a big factor.

Whereas for me, the 16 and 17 Melon felt the same and no different. I think if anything 16 might seem hotter just cause they all had more work in them than the fresher 17s we hit after. I wasn't keen on the feel either way. Never jived with the Melons myself. And I always thought it was the same bat as the Pink Hall Legit from the 2015 season anyways but painted not pink and thus widely accepted in comparison.

More an EST guy myself. Preferred the feel, mainly of the handles.

Goes to show right?

Hearing more and more about the Pure stuff. Do they make a 2pc or are they seriously trying to sell me a 1pc in today's age?

BP hero crapped on the watermelon last season didnt he? Saying it was nothing special. He also REALLY disliked the PsyCan. I had a PsyCan and thought it was awesome and currently game a watermelon..

This season he was dumping on the Dinger Slinger.

I don't know if the bias is really based on anything other than his personal preference but there is some for sure.

Lost In Space, the Baker was an AWESOME bat. Maybe just overlooked cause it was a balanced bat and/or because it was an Easton. I prefer the Baker over the Helmer alot, in fact I wouldn't even grab a Helmer.

I dont understand why there aren't more Nighthawks... . These are highly underrated bats. We have a '16 model on the team but I preferred my '17 more.

short barrel
like the red miken freakshow - yes exclusive - but $30 less that mainstream freak 30
easton helmer flex - really overlooked bat - crazy pop if spending the time to break it in
demarini newbreed - another overlooked bat with good pop
freak PT12/EST 12 balanced - both nasty

big barrel
Worth EST XL, most used bat in any off the fence tourny this year... shootout/SC canadians.. probably sold the most of theses anywhere. performance speaks for itself

like the above person said, i also felt the 17 Mizuno NH had lots of pop... enjoyed swinging the balanced version.
