    The first Combat I ever swung was the 15 orange Combatant dual. My buddy brought it to practice and everybody was complaining about the endload and being a one piece. The first time I heard the crack and felt how smooth it swung... had me hook, line and sinker.

    My first combat was the Dirty 120 reload, man that thing smoked. The end loading, crack sound and soft barrel is what hooked me as well. Wish id have loaded up on some more b4 they went out.

    Broke out my Guilt Saturday in a tourney - damn I forgot how good that bat feels and how well it performs! That's my slump buster right there.

    Yeah, I couldn't pass up the deal they had on the Extinction and got a backup. Now I need to STOP buying bats!

    i've said that dozens of times.
    Looks like you can get a G5 Avarice on Amazon too. Supposed to just be a OG Avarice repainted and retested for ASA approval

    If I could find more good reviews on this bat then maybe just maybe I could break open the piggy bank and add to my collection. Hint hint..

    Well, just ordered the Avarice G5. Not sure why, but I did. One of life's big mysteries.

    Have to sell one in my stash now to keep the boss happy :)

    The Avarice G5 came in today. It was listed as endloaded but with Combat, it's a relative term as we all know. Comparing it to the same weight(27) 2015 DBA of mine, I'd say it's a quarter ounce less endloaded by the tipping point which I was glad to see. Both weighed in at 27.15 with knobcuff. Went to the nearest field and air mailed a bucket of 52's. Definitely a softer feel than the DBA which I liked as well. Overall, it seams to be a great bat.

    Now I can stop buying....maybe.

    all i've heard is that it's a repainted OG Avarice that now passes ASA testing due to new testing procedures and new balls. Can anyone actually confirm that?

    I have an Extinction I was looking to pick up the G5 - is the Extinction more or less of an end load compared to this?

    What weight Extinction? The 25.5 was pretty balanced while the 26.5 was a sledgehammer. Mine anyway. The 27 oz G5 is less endloaded than 26.5 Extinction I had.

    27.5 for the Extinction I was thinking about getting a 28 G5

    I'd have to guess my new 27oz G5 is around a full ounce endload. Can't speak for the 28. Sometimes they do the progressive endload as they go up in weight. On this exclusive bat, it could be different though.

    Around 200 hits on the Avarice G5 now. Has a nice crack sound with the 52's. Gonna game it Monday in coed. The chicks dig those crazy Combat graphics.

    Can anyone tell me how the Guilt 2 stacks up with the bats of today and what it's comparable to?

    Never swung the Guilt but mostly good reviews. Has some junk in the trunk if you're an endload guy.

    My newest addition is a 2013 OG Dirty ASA 28oz. Won't be able to swing it for awhile but a few of the guys on the team are gonna give it a try. Feels good as far as weighting goes. Any of you Combatants still swinging this artifact?

    Not the asa, but the dirty 120 reload utrip is what hooked me on combat. Straight up nasty and lasted for quite awhile, really hated to see that one go

    Hoping this one lasts for a little while. Unknown number of hits but seems to be in good shape with the original grip. Heard it was a repaint of the 13 DBA with a lighter endload.
