    Hit up Smarkley here on SBF, he is the guy to talk to about the new Anderson bats & I know he swings the Flex. I swung his (27.2 oz scale weight) a number of times but it was just way too light & balanced for my taste. It actually felt like a 25 oz bat. You definitely need to go up an oz or two, my guess is that I would of been more at home with a 30 oz (I usually swing a 27 oz end load). I did not like the ting sound it made but it did hit up there with the other new bats on the market (Ultimate Weapon, Salvo Scandium) & it will probably be the more durable option.

    I have one...it's ok, hate the ping. Picked up an OG Nano and now the flex is just sitting in the bag. It's very very balanced. Distance is fine and its very easy to find the SS but just not my cup of tea

    The 2017's are more endloaded--they claim to have added a 1/2 oz el. If you like the 2015's go to closeout..... NIW on sale for $80 (30oz only)
