    Been out of the game for 2 years. Just got back into it. Narrowed down to these 2 bats. Swung a niw baker, fits my swing but still needed to be broken in(I'm sure it will a a good bat after 200-300 cuts). Want to know how the "No doubt" is compared to the Asa Baker. I was currently swinging a tru one and blackouts.(regrettably I sold all my bats when I stopped playing) I need a true balanced bat that will pass compression test when gamer status. (They do not preload non-linear bats for tourney)
    For only 52/300-275 balls

    Can't comment on the Baker, but the No Doubt is a very under-rated bat. It hits .52's very well, has great durability, and can be had cheap. Especially the 2015 white and blue model. I suspect the newer black and red one is a repaint.

    Just be aware that the No Doubt is very, very balanced and swings light. I swung a 27oz and it felt lighter than a teammate's Demarini One.12 that scales at 25.5oz.

    I have both, the No doubt is absolutely an underrated bat. The only issue with Mizuno is the No warranty but thats why they are so cheap. They both need breaking in but, thats just like almost all bats. Its not Miken or Worth but you shouldnt hear a rattle after 100 hits. My watermelon is has a rattle after 100 hits

    all top end bats will perform about the same, get the one that fits your swing. stop trying to compare 2 completely different bats

    The no doubt is dual stamp though, right? If being able to use it everywhere means something to you go with that. Otherwise, I'd just buy the cheapest option.

    I have the newest model no doubt in 27 and 28 and they feel much lighter than listed weight. My go to is the 28, feels like a 26 and is the smoothest swinging bat out there. Distance is awesome as well once you break it in, right there with my Mikens. Def. Balanced.

    The No Doubt is a good bat and it felt great when I got it, but it swings like a wiffleball bat. My 28 feels lighter than most 26s I've swung.
