    Had a chance to swing the '17 White Border Battle ASA, which was pretty sick. I haven't been playing like I used to so I don't have a good point of reference for it. Looking to buy a new stick for next year, and just wondering if there are better bats than this one? Specifically curious about the Miken Freak Platinum ASA. Can anybody give me a comparison on this Worth vs other bats? Thanks.

    What is the Worth Border Battle a repaint of? I don't see any endloaded Worth ASA bats with a 12.5" barrel.

    Is the extra half on the Worth barrel just a lie, and the barrels are identical? Im genuinely curious.

    The 17 BB Legit is just a better looking EST XL if you're not into purple. I just purchased one awhile back and it is a very nice stick. They're all pretty dang good these days. Find one that fits your swing.

    I put my Worth Border Battle 12.5" next to my Miken 12" barrel bat... My Worth 12.5" was barely longer.

    The '17 Border Battle will feel identical to the '18 Worth EST ASA (pink 13.5"). Both have matte paint. The '17 EST 13.5 purple felt and sounded a little different on contact due to the glossy paint. Some people will tell you that glossy vs matte paint makes no difference. To me it did.

    My Riot. That means either the Riot is 11.5” or the KP23ASA is 12.5” if it’s a repaint. New B.B. is or will be a repaint of something. Maybe the next EST release will be a 12.5” with EL and Flex100 handle.
