ASA Monsta98 bat review (must read)

This is my personal review of the asa Monsta98. Little background on me I am 6'1'' 250lbs. I have been playing softball for 6 years total. But playing tournaments seriously for the last 2 years. I am a B rated player in ASA. I am a bat freak and have hit the majority of asa bats in the market from bats that came out in '05 to the latest models to come out this year.

I was as big of a skeptic as you could possibly be about this bat. Those are far away thoughts as of this afternoon. This bat was said to be the best asa bat to EVER hit the market. Obviously that is the boldest of claims. I thought there is no way. Monsta with its patented floating inner barrel technology has blown apart my reservations on the performance of this bat. This bat has one of the biggest sweet spots I've ever felt. With that comes a very forgiving bat. It's use of a dish end cap really proves to help as well on miss hits. This bat has a remarkable feel to it and is easy to feel the ball explode of the barrel. I probably took about 80 swings with this bat today. I was hitting a mix of asa hot dots, hot dot plus', and the thunder hy con balls(mush balls). We started our bp session at 3pm and it was around 75 degrees so balls were pretty soft and the bat absolutely killed them. We hit until dark around 645 and when the balls got harder as the temp dropped the balls just flew farther which I didn't think could be possible. I did hit a few hard balls(zn classic m and super gold dots) at the end of my third round of swings with the Monsta and all I have to say is wow. This stick is absolutely legit and surpasses the hype behind it and literally made me a believer. This will be in my bag as soon as possible.
