my business partner Fireclipz prefer the EL version of this bat but wants me to point out that it is not significant.
z2k barrel feel. z1k flex.
i was NOT a z2k fan. i found it too stiff and feedback isn't there in my hands.
if u like the z2k, u will have the same barrel feel but the bat probably isn't as stiff.
the z3K uses '360 composite'. this is different from the ls2x composite in the previous versions. but is it? pffft. i doubt it.
the z1k is my current gamer but i will be using this z3000 balance in leaugue and at ss this weekend... cuz i like to have fun playing softball!
as with all other bat hype, is this a bat that'll turn u into a champ? no.
will it semi-falsify your real talents and boost your average ? probably. becuz the sweetspot is just as huge as the z2000. that's why the bat became such a hit.
for the common player, you will like this bat just like any other 'big sweetspot' bats that came before it... extended, scn9, z2000, etc. becuz it big sweetspots increase your margin for error.
the past year hype surrounding the z2k is exactly an appeal to the masses. but it does not line the fences of the top teams in ontario. just wanted to point out this observation.
it is just another top end bat. it all comes down to feel. they all perform just as good.
but for the z1000 lovers this is the bat u'll most likely move to because it has the new utrip stamp.
