lets just say that it will be an interesting season coming up, and will most likely be some new and unexpected favorites out of the bunch!

People are starting to add their feedback on the bats, on our FB page too

Mizuno Crush is an all new bat period. And very good. Short barrel Nighthawk to some extent, but it's new tech and new feel to me. Feels like it has great potential with some work in them. Demos seems to get better weekly.

Z1000 I think will win back LS ground, felt good to me and I am usually the #1 hater of LS and their loggy barrels of the past. It was exactly like a Super Z but with a barrel that actually has pop and a different sound. The hits had comparable exit speed to my Worths and other demos. I can't wait to have the Legault Sig Bal version to test and then want to put it through paces outside in the spring to really compare it downrange.

Easton FireFlex to me swung like the Easton Baker Flex but with 500+ hits in it and worked in. They were pretty damn new so I think they are delivering a hotter bat initially but the same feel and frame. EL model is like an EL'd Baker Flex frame and these features above.

Demarini to me is just more of the same - Not really my brand and hasn't been since they stopped OG Juggy and J2 like bats that were among the best, or OG Cartel... They were surpassed with new stamp and have not managed to win be back since. The Mistress I guess is a new bat - 13" and Newbreed like performance, but feel wise not for me at all.

Miken/Worth - To no one's surprise is more of the same goodness. New player sig name etc, but really whatever you liked in previous years with them is made available to you again in new colours. If they make them any better they will fail out of the gate and basically be illegal.
