    You may get roasted for asking the question.
    Any newer ASA bat from the major manufactures will hit 52’s well. It more so depends on your swing and mechanics. Read through the forums, lots of info and opinions already posted.

    Those are great sticks for 52's you already have. With Miken and Demar covered. Try an Easton Ghost? Don't listen to Normy and try Combat if you like hitting it beyond the infield lol.

    That's a killer price! Keep your receipt handy, and don't hit anything harder than 52's with it. I've played two teams that were using Ghosts, and they were launching the ball (good hitters in general). Both bats were heavily webbed up.

    I'd be cautious about the Ghost, or at least, as Bow Commander said, keep that receipt.

    I've seen good things from the Ghost, but also seen bad things. A couple of my teammates cracked early on with using strictly 52's. I used one for a couple live AB's and snagged a couple line drives, but I have seen multiple guys put balls way out with it, as well.

    I'd also suggest a 26 Harvey. Mine cracked, but, it felt extremely balanced at that weight and most definitely was a rocket launcher.

    Five stars. The stick is absolutely fire when it opens up (takes about 300 or so hacks to loosen). It's flexier than a lot of bats out there, but not to the point where it feels odd ( Juggy territory).

    I have a 27 oz and i'll be the first to say, it's not a feather. The 1/2 oz EL isn't a big time sledge hammer, but you don't get the same whip with this bat as you would with the balanced models.

    Same ranking with the 17 XL. I have a 28 oz that has about 300 cuts and is opening up nice. Swings like butter through the zone.
