J3a review

Temp: 40*
Balls:mixture of 44/375 and 3 blue dots
Bat: 27oz j3a
# of hits before round: 300
Field: baseball field 320 down the lines 340 in the alleys and 330 in dead center

The bat felt amazing out of the wrapper. Was toe to toe distance wise with my broken in og juggy. It had better exit speed and a bigger sweet spot then the juggy.
Today it hit another level. Ball was jumping off the bat better than any other bet I have ever swung. I hit 4 out total and tonight was the first time I have ever hit one out of that field and I bp there 2 or 3 times a week. Even mi****s were going to the warning track. I put close to 100 hits on it today and I just can't put it down. Furthest hit was probably 350+ with a blue dot and ive never come close to that before. I was also breaking in the new l1 helmer and it nows has about 500 hits on it and its consistently 15- 20 feet behind the j3.
My buddy that I was hitting with is a diehard z lover and he didn't even pick one up tonight. He said he is definitely buying one after tonight.
I apparently got a good batch one. Because it could still pass now and I didn't hit anything softer than the 44/375.

It will be like swinging a cut bat with anything harder than a 52/300

If you do you are sacrificing the lifespan of the bat
