Another Opinion Thread

Ok fellas here goes:

So since the new thumb print stamp has come out and we have been hitting hot dots, Lots of companies have been making bats hot out of the wrapper with minimal break in time.

Last year I swung Red Legit 220 Connell which I still have, bat is indeed hot but I find I am not enjoying it as much this year.

I bought the Jeff Hall watermelon and so far so good, I find I am striking the ball better with a .5 oz mid load, I also have last years Miken DC41 NIW in a 26 with receipt as well.

I have not swung the DC41 in a 26 only 27 which was too heavy for me. Lots of guys I see love the dc 41 but also love last years Connell.

My dilemma is this, I only want to carry two bat this year. Do I keep the old faithful Connell and watermelon, Watermelon and Dc41 or Dc41 and Connell.

I know it's a first world problem to have but I also want a new back pack lol.

Keep in mind both watermelon and DC41 have receipts and are newer but the Connell is broken in. But watermelon and and DC41 are easier to sell

Opinions and heckling welcome

Ive got 6 bats lol but if I were only to be allowed for example, I would want an end load and balanced for different game situations. Now I personally dont like balanced bats, so i would use a 26 end load in that situation. But that's my thought, one bat for power, and one with a lighter barrel for placing the ball.

If it were up to me, I would keep the bats with EL and move the balanced one.

It's a personal choice, but when I am digging a bat with EL, I find it really challenging to move back to a balanced stick intermittently.

Just my 2 cents worth.

I used to have a lot of bats but playing less I feel I don't need so many, The connell and watermelon are both more of a balanced feel and the DC41 is end loaded of course, Hence my dilemma.

I am finding that a little bit, I cannot hit the balanced as well right now.

but I also haven't swung the dc in a 26 so that's unknown.

I would sell the DC. You probably paid a good chunk for the Watermelon so you should invest the time in seeing what that badboy can do once broken in. The Connell was already your gamer, is broken in and you can pick it up and swing it anytime.

I wasn't a fan of black DC so that would be my choice to move.

Ya I have the DC sold to a buddy already.

You my friend have a problem.. keep the watermelon and sell the rest. I know what you mean by mid load on the watermelon, it does swing a tad heavier. But will be good with time.

I'm in love with balanced bats and cannot swing anything but them (yes I can swing them in BP or w.e, but balanced just feels so much better)

This is assuming you aren't going to take a huge loss on the DC.

EDIT: I see you have it sold already, lol.
