    HitTrax data of the Stovall that arrived today. Bat was brand new out of wrapper. We do not have a tester on hand but DT stated it should be testing at 275 like the other Z1000's. Austyn threw up 30 quick swings on it with our GSL balls we use on everything. Max exit speed of 103 with an 89 average. Tyler working on his launch angle in the last swing in the pic and hit one 429.

    I need to film in landscape!!

    Looked like most of those pitches were too short and flat. Still looked and sounded great despite the bad pitching.

    Unwrapped mine yesterday. It’s definitely a keeper. Took about 80 cuts and it got better with each swing.

    Feels EL to me. Not sure how the JHZ swings. I have tried the 27 Lloyd which was nice too, but this one seems to have more mass in barrel. I prefer the Stovall. It’s just so smooth through the zone. Huge sweet spot on both. Feels like the loading on this one drives through the ball. I took some video but don’t know how to post videos on here.

    It does not swing heavy. The loading on this one is like a EL bat in your hands, but smooth through zone. Mine scales at 26.5 with that pyramid knob cuff on.

    got to hit mine today...27oz. liking what i'm seeing so far. don't feel a whole lotta handle flex. very good feedback on contact. ss seems to be much larger than my vet's...good pop and distance. hit every kind of ball very well (52+, 52/300s, and Classic Ms).

    The hall I had was too light but hit the ball well...but I think I would still prefer this Stovall over the hall. My son he liked it better than the other bats he'd been swinging (18 Vet, Omega 2 and the Hall)

    Loved my Stovall. One of my faves for sure. If i didn’t like my other bats so much I would have definitely kept it.
