    Hey everyone I just wanted to see who all has hit a new stamped USSSA bat? I just ordered the maxload DC-41 and cant wait to get it. What new bats have you hit and what do you think of them?

    SCN2 comparison....

    that will never happen. Those SCN2's we're one of the hottest bats ever made. This is why they're coming out with new 2013 stamped bats that will break way before they ever get "SCN2 hot.":eek:

    That's funny i was thinking of asking the exact same question. Right now i cant put down my scn2 and was thinking when the 2013 stamps come out, i want something similar. Just the way it feels swinging it is awesome

    The avarice was a very nice bat, I swing an og cnt and I'm prolly getting the 13 avarice. Unless I try a new 454 or Easton I like that's the bay I'm getting.

    I hit the new legit ressy yesterday. Balls were jumping off of it. Felt just as good if not better than my old ressys.

    Broken

    Saw a brand new - just bought at the fields- freak nxt break after 2 batters. This was in about 60 degree weather. Ouch. I'm sure there are bats that have gone much longer, but that was a little disappointing to see with my own eyes!

    BADEN AXE: bat is a two piece and has great pop. Now alot of people are skeptical about this handle that they have came out with. To me it feels more comfortable. But this bat took about 100 swings to break in and was then game ready. And from what I've seen the price on them is the lowest on any 2013 bat.

    Bat may break in fast because with that handle design, your going to be hitting the exact same side of the bat every swing. How long will the bat last?

    Yah you will be hitting it on just one side. However it will last just as long as any of the other bats out there. Online it shows there technology behind it which is called a plus plus technology. Which is a technology they made that is strengthen on the one side. We had one that we were swinging. Took about 100 to break in and lasted over 750. We were hitting evil (rocks) balls.

    Why is anyone even interested in 2013 stamped bats right now since they all suck compared to what we can still use!

    I openly admit that I got caught up and bit by the hype bug.

    I sold two bats and then bought the 2013 Connell.

    Now I will also say that I was let down by the lack of end load but will easily admit that the bat does NOT suck and Id easily swing it during a game.

    I've also swung the 2013 NXT Maxload and find that it too is a very solid bat.

    The 454 Ressy Legit is a great bat. At first it seemed like it wasn't going to have much pop. It opened up after about 100 hits and was hitting the ball really well. It's a great bat all around. Hits, looks, and feels great.

    Titans - They swing balanced and have a great feel....ball jumps off the bat right outta the wrapper.....

    Legit - Very nicely balanced....also great feel and a little stiff at 1st but opens up well.....

    Resmondo - Great bat...Handle flex is a little much for me cause of the endload.....50 or so swings and these things are monsters.....

    overall id say the legit is gonne be the better bat of the 3....resmondo has a little to much flex which is gonna hurt overall distance IMO.......if i had to choose which to buy...1st Legit, 2nd Resmondo and 3rd Titan

    2013 easton line is going to be very good.spoke with wegs this week after he hit his new sig bat and is very impressed.new composite and bat is good to go out of the wrapper.after 200 swings is game ready. Have 5asa and 5 usssa coming out I believe pictures are on this site in forum. Should be the top bats for 2013 with stamp.durability is unknown now but with the new stuff I wouldn't consider a lot of them bp bats because of the spiral webbing and all. Believe the hype the new easton line will be really good.

    This is not even close to true. For a 2013 bat, the Baden Axe is nice, very hot after broken in and very comfortable to swing. They won't last 2000 swings like yesteryears bats but they do deserve a shot.

    bout 100 swings on my mafia and the bat screams off it. i dont hit power but i am hitting ropes. the couple guys with power that have swung it are launching them. but you cant tell its needs breaking in. cant wait till then. sweet spot is rather small but it has zero vibration when hit wrong which is great.
