I donít think itís like the New Breed of last year. This bat was super hyped and is a really good bat in and outside, but it may have been overhyped like the New Breed... but performance wise is better than the New Breed, hands down.

to be fair I think all bats are over rated... Fire in one guys hands doesn't mean it isn't gonna be crap in someone else's.

I've never come across a bat that was truly a no doubter across the board.

I went wild last year and went through maybe 11 different bats and I like the Nighthawk and Easton Baker the best out of the ones I tried. Not TOO much hype with those. I did buy into all the Helmer love and I really didnt care for it.

the last bat that really got me was the LS Z4 Dual Stamp (black and yellow). It felt like fire indoors, but didn't do well outdoors. But this was also before I realized that I like short barrels.

I think the Louisvilles are actually underrated. Not a lot of people talking about them at all, but the performance is great

They take more patience than the other 18's - People are giving up on them early. Seen a few out there that seem hot AF with exit speed. But people are saying it still took 600-700 cuts and a mix of balls to get it there. Curious to see the durability though, it may be a keeper and real hot by its year #2.

In comparison, I worked in a Nautalai with 2 rounds of Hot Dots last night. So I can see why impatience is a thing. My purple Legits were also good with very little work. But one of the 2 I have is on its last legs, showing serious webbing and a paint crack.

I still don't love their feel of LS 2018 Z1000, but the performance has improved. But it still feels like the Z2000 RI & Super Z - Which is not for me.

As for everyone saying Demarini - The problem is their Nautalai bat was a ltd run and IS the one i'd call their game changer for 2018. Comp handle of Juggy on really nice feeling softer Legit like barrel. Crushes the hot dots out of wrapper without that TM super soft Combat feel and super rigid alloy handle. Hopefully they realize it and make an in line Nautalai commonly available by next year. I would buy a backup to mine easily.
