    That's what I'm afraid of. Everyone seeing how great the pop is and using it. I guess the one thing going for me is that if we keep the same team, half the guys aren't very good. Lol. Just hope it has a lot of swings in it hitting the 44/375s.

    Hence the reason SYB likes his 30 ozer's. You might get one other person on the team to swing it and that might even be a stretch.

    If I'm gonna spend $230-$250 on a bat, I want to know it will last.

    I concur with those above, older (pre 16/17 Easton or any other manufacturers bats) they take time to break in but last much longer than recent released bats.. if you want something more state of the art (for lack of better term) get a boombah, they are very durable and rake once broken in..
    And are very well priced right now..js

    ""This is pretty much the standard answer for harder balls.

    Pre '17 USSSA Eastons will serve you well but if you're looking for a 30oz you're limited to a few models; any of the 2012 line (SY100, ST100, SY100W, and ST100H), 2013/2014 L1 and L2, and 2015/2016 Kirby.

    Mizuno Blackouts are criminally underrated bats and the EL version is available up to 29.5oz. The standard black/yellow version and any of the FSE versions (limited runs in different colours) are the same bat and will have a mild endload. The Blackout Shadow feels a touch more endloaded but otherwise it's the same. Stay away from the dual-stamped (black and blue) model, it's a dog.

    As far as buying a newer bat for .52's, don't worry about that. Get any of the above-mentioned bats broken in well with harder balls and it'll hang with the new stuff."""



    I got a 30oz Kirby from a board member on here and it actually feels very good.
    even with a 5oz end load

    life is too short. grab that dc41 for 150 and enjoy. don't bp it, it will last for long time if you just play once per week. no one will swing your 30oz with 1oz maxload. heck, they don't even touch 28oz.

    Sheesh there was a nice omega for 138 28 demarini dual stamp in the sale section that would have been perfect for you to try and team to use, find used bats for cheap and if you are looking for new do not pay full retail price, pm milocoman aka Chad in here and ask him for lowest price on bats, most people pay 200-220 for new ime for current models

    Didn't end up full retail price. Ended up getting it for $240. Will definitely PM him if fellow teammates are looking for bats.

    But it'll fall in face first because it only has one leg and thinks the water is a bunch of titties then comes out with a **** in its mouth.

    we'll see. i don't think it's gonna be that bad as long as he swings only game and others don't bother with it.

    from performance point of you, what would be you guys pick of dual stamp between, omega, future, or duece?

    Bats were made to hit balls. Why would you buy a bat and not hit balls?

    Lol. If you buy a new bat, 2017-2018, you can bet it won't last hitting .44s, no matter who swings it.

    so you improve your game and get better by watching a bunch of dudes who have completely different skill sets than you play?

    them swinging whatever bat they are swinging =/= you swinging that same bat, just so you know

    by your logic i should at least play FCS football by now with all of the football games ive watched over the years

    Don't kid yourself, you'd be an arena league player at best.

    now i am kinda curious what you guys do for a living. I mean perception is so ****ing one dimensional and only see things through your own glasses. I know that it's not even worth explaining it, regardless of skillset, good mechanic is good mechanic. you still can learn from the best in multiple aspects. I've seen Ken's video multiple times where Kirby explains his mechanic. So it's good to review that in live game. i'll not spell it out everything but, for god sake.

    I've played against Kyle Pearson before he made it big. Seeing him first hand didn't make me any better, not sure how watching him on video would either.
