Easton "ELDER" Senior bat review

Wanna let you guys know what to expect when the Easton ELDER Senior bat is fully available for everyone. I have worked with Easton in the past as a promo guy and tester, have also swung Easton for 15+ yrs and i just got the ELDER in a 27 oz, now i got it yesterday and promptly went to the fields to hit about 530 last night.....

Weather-- low 60's... no wind
Balls-- were 44/375 diamond zulu trip classic m
Fileds-- were 309LF --350CF .. a base ball field we use in upper and comp leagues

Bat-- 27oz Easton ELDER Senior 1.21 SSUSA Balanced ( pics coming ) in the wrapper
Swings-- 40 swings total for me

i had my buddy Mikey ( who is NOT A PITCHER ) throwing to me cause he wanted to hit with it also

So the first ten swings were as usual for a new bat but the bat definitely had a very good feel and balanced nicely, at about 12-15 swings the ball started flying, was not really trying to hit balls out, just trying to hit line drives.
Around swing 25 the sound definitely changed and the ball started to FLY!!!
between 25 and 40 i hit several line drives to LC that 1 or 2 hopped the fence and hit a total of 5 balls over the fence, not moonshots more like seeds, line drives... last few swings i was trying to hit them out and my last three swings were between 325-350, walked off from home plate to where they went over
the fence. I for one am very happy fella to still be an Easton guy because this bat only has 40 swings and is very close top being game ready. Very pleased and excited with the performance of this bat!!

Pros== sweet feel, crisp line drives, and very good pop, good looking bat looks like a Wegman L2

Cons== there were 3-4 small paint chips in the barrel area that flaked off but i could care less

Will be near 70 here tomrw and im taking her out again with a couple guys to get their impression of the bat also, Id say they have a WINNER on their hands because of the Easton "legend", I mean that if you like Easton before you will like this one.... which i will post pics of in a bit later, as im playing til about 1/2 pm in a tourney

Like i said fellas it was only a matter of TIME!!!!
