    As long as it isn't mentioned where to get it at I'll allow this thread. One word of where to purchase it and I'll remove this thread.

    The pics of the bat look pretty cool too I am just wondering if the performance of the bat is going to be the same. The durability was not the best but man did that thing get nasty when broken in.

    Man DeMarini set the world on fire yesterday with this news. I kinda wish it wasn't a exclusive tho because the asking price is far to high so I'll be passing on this one. Factory Hitters won't even be getting these unless they have a deal worked out with that other place. So this is as exclusive as it gets.

    Good lookin' stick

    Great looking bat, if the performance equals or surpasses the other one, it will be highly sought after.

    If the Durability is better it's not the same bat. The S.One Durability is better and it's getting just as hot. If this holds true, why would anyone want a Cartel 2 over the S.One?

    The Cartel was the best bat Demarini has made in ages for UTrip. If this was the same bat with the new stamp they'd be releasing it everywhere and selling all they could make. Some people might like the Stadium or other things better, but for mass appeal nothing they've had touches the Cartel.

    Cartel and an OG stadium w/2k+ cuts are the best bats I've swung in years.

    I can kind of agree with this but the RD28U is just flat out ridiculous.


    I doubt you are.............

    Totally agree with this, found out about pricing and decided that I am going to have to pass on it.

    Nothing touches my RD28U and I've owned OTCs, Juices, Stadiums, J2Us, Spec 1s and Cartels...

    There is a debate if this is a reissue or a repainted Spec 1...

    every single exclusive or canadian market bat released has been accused of being a repaint, and not one of them has been yet.

    if demarini can afford to make limited runs(like the RD) of unique bats, there's no reason why you shouldn't expect this to be a different bat from what's out there too.

    I know we're just talking about Canada, but you realize the country is bigger than a single store, right? :D

    Hey guys here is some nitty gritty on the bat from DeMarini:
    The Cartel 2 is a Special Make Up (SMU) model that is exclusive to a company. This is a USSSA model that will feature a 4.ONE barrel & handle configuration. The Cartel 2 will be available in 26, 27, 28 & 30 oz weight options.
    This model will be available the first week of January through The exclusive company and slowpitch dealers that The company selects to help distribute their model.
