    This is all for now ... Feedback coming

    EDIT: quick tee feedback...

    put 46 (yup, 46...not 40, not 50...46 cause that's how many are in the bucket at the moment...a hodgepodge of sxspinr52s, bp52+s, 52/300s but mostly 44/375s and a few bp rockets and the green/yellow sxspinrs)…

    bat swings stiff...I contribute that tp it being a 1pc (no ****, huh?)...barrel is "soft" but not mushy. I feel like the nitrous has a much crisper feel...that being said, the ball comes off very well. hitting the same field as I was the 18 BB Legit and was hitting well past the tree I mentioned in that post (in the worth section)…

    although anarchy says this IS a bat for the harder stuff and LC, I felt like I was getting better distance on the 52s...idk. hard to really judge...

    I need some live bp now...the wife is pissed from the last go so I gotta convince one of my sons to come out with me again soon.

    EDIT: live bp feedback...

    the earlier comment about the barrel being soft wasn't/isn't entirely accurate now...while there's the obvious difference when hitting 52's vs the harder stuff, it's not like I previously mentioned...I didn't have a problem finding the ss and every hit came off the bat very well.

    I don't WANT to say this is a much better bat than the Nitrous because it isn't...and I cannot definitively say that the "new and improved" technology helps it break in quicker but I really like it and while I wish the weighting was similar to the 18 BB Legit, it really is a non-issue for me...

    I was/am definitely seeing better performance out of it early in the hit count but I don't think that was something I really paid attention to with the nitrous because there was never any specific mention of a quicker break in, etc...

    bottom line for me is...if you buy one of these new anarchies, you may be fairly pleased with the performance...or not.

    Yeah, I was kinda surprised because I didn't feel like I was getting a hold of the ball very well (I kinda rushed out to the field during lunch) so I wasn't focused on "swing discipline"

    Nice! Been back in the states the past few weeks so hopefully mine is waiting on me today at work when I get back! Really hoping this thing is on par (if not better) with my awakening!

    Put about 30 live cuts on it...bats has maybe 130 on it now. If the advertising is to be believed then yes, it breaks in faster. Hit the ball noticeably further than with the nitrous at this point... Idk how much of that is the "new tech" or just coincidence but yeah, easily hitting in the 300' range... Still prefer the weighting of the 18 BB Legit but can't argue with the performance of the Diablo with 52s and 44s...I'll have a quick clip later for those interested.

    There's a reason why I don't post a vid. I'd take your swing any day.

    I know I know. Maybe one of these days I'll get some Joker and Country bait going again. It's been awhile.

    Didn't mean to hijack the thread. Where were we...ahhh yes....El Diablo.

    lol haha.. don't tell me you afraid of their comments. actually there are a quiet a few. but who cares, at the end of the day, this is just softball that we all enjoy to play hard and feeling good about. something other than work, kids and wife. my own space.

    now about the bat, man, i am at the point where i am not even that excited about the bats anymore. all bats are good. it's me. my mechanic, skill and power. that's it. that's why i like to see more videos, so i can learn. I pay more attention to chille's swing than his bat how he generates his power with consistency, etc... well, enough of me talking... carry on.

    Hopefully mine arrives sometime this week so I can get some swings. I'll gladly post vid and hit some of the other anarchy's side by side and see if we can notice some differences/similarities.

    I do like seeing other folks posting vids because I might see things I didn't "see" while swinging the bats myself...looking forward to seeing your feedback.

    I think it's more midloaded than the EL I'm used to in the Bubba and even the 18 Border Battle Legit...I don't scale my bats but I'm told the new models are pretty spot on.
