    My buddy owns one and he says its the best utrip Demarini he has swung and that its up there with Miken/Worth performance wise. But that its not a bat you want to BP. Webbing within the first 20-30 swings. Hotness off the wrapper

    Sounds like a Mistress repaint then.... Which makes a whack load of sense.

    Not quite a repaint. Feels a little lighter than the mistress. And has a different handle.

    I like the feel of the cartel better. Neither should be used in BP though. Put maybe 50 swings on either of them and they are good.

    They both perform great. Very title break in time. Just choose which barrel length you like better.

    What balls were you hitting? Were they stored in the garage or in a heated space before you took them to hit?

    Does the Cartel have any endload feel or is it the midload that Demarini seems so fond of now?

    A slight endload I would say. The mistress feels much more endloaded.
