Who has put some work into one?
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.
there is a noticeably different feel from the handle...I was curious to see what others have to say about it. mine webbed up a lot more than my TM (barely noticeable) a lot faster
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.
thoughts about cartel vs malice?

Took the wrapper off mine tonight wanted to just put a bucket on it and didn’t even make it through a bucket it was indoor and it wasn’t cold can’t really give a review maybe got 10-15 swings before it blew up
Your pics are private. I wanna see this ****.
Sorry just made it public I think
wonder what the return options are...if it's gonna be this bad, I figure I should blow mine up and go with what I get for a return....
I guess I’ll find out tomorrow
let us know...I may be blowing mine up depending on what you find out.
Wow that’s nuts. What balls?
They both perform great. Very title break in time. Just choose which barrel length you like better.
Got off the phone gonna get another bat with a full warranty
Cartel or main line?
I asked for another cartel since it’ll have a warranty again
What balls were you hitting? Were they stored in the garage or in a heated space before you took them to hit?
you don't need to roll new bats, duh
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.
Not to be a sceptic, but I feel like I hear this, LITERALLY, every year with DeMarini. I am actually pretty close to breaking down and checking out a Cartel but come on, can we get some constructive feedback instead of "Best utrip bat they have ever made" cliché?
haven't hit the new NB but the Malice, TM and Cartel are reeeaaally good. I was really skeptical but got a good price on my first cartel and am really happy with it...gonna grab a few more in case durability becomes a problem ...
How about EL (or lack there of)?
I don't feel like it's got much EL at all...I mean I can tell it's there but it's nothing like swinging an Worth XXL/Miken Maxload
Talking to a guy about trading my NIW Mutant Haze for a slightly used Cartel....feel like an idiot even considering it :/
Bro, i agree with you. “Demarini was back” last year with the
Newbreed. Ebded up being BS. Difference this year is that the great feedback about the TM and Cartel is not only coming from the Demarini groupies, but basically everyone that swings them. I still havent swung them, but the feedback is too good to not be true. Even from none Demarini fans.
If you are going to do that trade, make sure you get really cood pics of the barrel as Demarini gave up some durability to increase perfomance with these bats.
Ya, he sent a couple picks. Said it has about 20 hits on it. Looks clean but cant see if any webbing has started. Been hearing these can explode in 30 which I doubt will be an issue for me but all I need is that one time......lol sooooo
Newbreed last year were gas. We hit them on radar next to
freak 12s/30s, Worths and ASPs and the MPHs were identical.
