bat weighting

Can anyone tell me how a bat is weighed? what i mean it when you look at the sticker on the bat, what does that weight mean? total weight or swing.

the reason i as is that i have a bat that i bought, thinking i was getting a 28 oz, but on the scale its 27.01 and usually the bats i get from Miken are dead on or very close to it, my DC41 28 oz on the scale is 28.03 maybe i have been looking at the sticker weight all wrong this whole time.

anyone have any info on the matter?

Honestly....

Wish you could pay a $10 upcharge on orders to have a scaled weight shipped to you.

I've found some odd one with bats with pretty much all but Easton & Mizzy.

I've had Demarini, Miken & Worth all come way off. Had a buddy order a 27oz EST and it scaled closer to 25oz.

You'd think at $300+ retail there'd be "some" QC to it but.

Happens in golf too frequently with Swing Weights and bad QC out of factory. Taylormade irons used to be notorious for it.
