    Just curious if anyone has hit the 2019 Branch and if it feels the same at the ‘18?

    Thanks.

    It swings the same (Weight/Load wise)

    I found the barrels of the Worth line to feel stiffer to last year initially. Seems to be taken a bit more work to get them dialed in and hot. 18 lines just came softer out of the gate.

    FWIW - Noticing the same from the Miken line.

    Seems to be common now for them to juggle a stiffer barrel year (2015), then a softer barrel year (2016), then back to stiffer (2017), then softer again (2018).... And now stiffer (2019)....

    The guy swinging this one had the opposite thoughts. He felt the barrel seemed softer on this year’s model as compared to last year’s Branch Legit.

    Yeah, not sure how he draws that conclusion. Makes me wonder if he really spent any time with the red 18 Branch.

    I had the same thought, didn't have "that" Worth feel to it. I preferred the 2018 line to the 2019 line all around. No matter the model, and all because I preferred the softer barrels.

    Goes to show to each their own when it comes to describing feel. We ad an entire group in a dome conclude the new line felt stiffer and more stubborn in the barrel to get poppin vs 2018. Lot of 2018 owners there swinging the new line and underwhelmed a little.

    I wonder how this model would be after a couple hundred hits using high comp balls. would the barrel soften up some and open up?
