I will try to upload a video of my BP session today. Going to hit off tee tonight.
Well...; BP isnt happening... I royally F'ed up. I put the wrong zip code and had it sent to my work address. Not going to even have it before Worlds
That sucks. My 26.5 came in today and it's sexy. Scales exactly 26.5 and feels pretty balanced. I wish it was a 27oz and not the .5oz increments. Can't wait to swing it Wednesday.
Well I ordered a 27.5... if its too heavy and I don't like the feel I will let you know! Possible trade.
Is it closer to 14" or 13"? I know the Worth 13.5" is the same barrel as the Miken 14".
I just don't want to order a 13.5" bat and get the same length as a
Mercy or Aftermath. I would prefer more towards the 14" long barrel.
Def closer to 13. It is almost identical in length to my utrip aftermath and just slightly longer than my miken pt12.
Have you had the chance to swing it?
Is the handle as stiff as the AM? Does Demarini make a flex 13" barrel? I am waiting for that bat.
I would probably be ok with this. I usually like heavier bats. Can't wait for tomorrow, even though it's going to be cold as a sumbitch.
It's the znx alloy handle, so it's stiff.
I’m trying to hold off temptation on buying this now rather than later. Only have 1 more tournament left and then I’m done until next April. I doubt I’ll be able to hold out for much longer....
hopefully the OG malice will drop in price like the demarini
Flipper Utrip exclusive from a3.
$250 is a pretty good deal already. I wouldn't expect a price drop any time soon. Still have all their Futures and Legacys sitting at $275 too.
$250 is a good price. It’s more of the fact that winter is a long season in Minnesota. Can’t really bp these bats much.
I'm going to hit with it Thursday with 52s, 44s, classic plus and classic Ms. I'll post feedback here after I hit with it. I'll have a no doubt,
z4 and pt12 with me also to compare distance.
Ok so took it out for BP today. Performance was right there with my PT12. Honestly though I'm not a fan of the weighting. When I had the malice 12 it was super balanced so I was hoping the 13.5 would be similar but it's more end loaded. Because I'm not digging the feel I'm going to put it on eBay for a good deal. If any board bros are interested let me know, I'll send you the link. 26.5 ounce.
On the bay for 170 with free ship bros!
I feel like my 26.5 is pretty balanced. Even compared to my 27oz balanced Omega. Didn’t get to swing it Wednesday because we got rained out.
It sell already?
Yes bro it sold.
So took my 27.5 out yesterday... cold weather, 40 degrees. Hit mixed bag of .52s .44s .40s.
I warmed up using my 2015 USSSA Flipper... took about 25 hacks... then switched to the Malice...
IMHO... the Malice IS the new
Flipper but with .5oz loading... the bat sounded 100% the same. Came off the bat the same... everything was the same... except for the weight distribution...
Not too happy, to me it’s a repaint. Not to say it’s a bad bat because I loved that 2015
Flipper line... to me it was better than the 2016 for some reason. I’m not sure I would pay the $250 to get another.
Also do not take a lot of BP with this... like the
flipper it webs extremely quick and is good to go. My barrel is almost completely webbed after 75 hacks.
Not sure how you got a
flipper feel from it. Haven’t swung the longer barrel malice, but the original felt kind of like an og cartel to me.
I haven’t swung the Cartel, so I cannot put any thought on that... I wish i could have recorded my session you would of seen same distance and same exact sound coming off the bat. Same matte finish, same end cap, just different barrel length.
On the website it states “new barrel technology” which doesn’t explain anything to me.
Read through some Facebook posts that lot of people were saying they felt like the Dinger Slinger/Flipper. I did see another post saying they based the Malice off the OG Cartel...
Plot twist... Cartel was an exclusive
Flipper back in the day? Lol
I’ve swung all of said bats and the cartel was definitely not a
Looking to sell mine... just can’t get used to the long barrel. $180 pm me and we can set something up. 27.5
that was my exact thought when I swung the red and black malice. I told everyone it was the closest feeling bat the og cartel.
San Antonio. about 95 degrees. thunder sy balls. 85% humidity. 15-20mph head wind
After speaking with some A3 reps that’s apparently that’s what they based the Malice off of.
