    Why would anyone buy a 13" barreled asa bat that isn't named aftermath?

    Never been a fan of the aftermath. More of a juggy feel kinda guy. I missed the boat on the omega, so I picked up the iconic.

    I am a juggy guy as well so i don't swing either. Just saying there is no way the iconic is going to be better with 52s. Just another useless exclusive

    How would you compare it to the omega?

    ^^^^ So true its not even funny

    Agreed, I hit the Cluggy for ASA and its virtually the same, which isnt a bad thing at all for me

    It's better for the 52's for sure. Not sure how many hits the demo I swung had though. The feel was a mix of the insane and aftermath. I can give a more detailed review once I get some swings on mine.

    There was mention that it kinda hits like the newbreed... I didn't find that to be the case... Then again, I didn't have solid pitching to keep me from swinging at outside pitches the whole time.

    x2, didnt think it was like the Newbreed at all. If I had to label it, I am sticking with calling it a "dual stamped cluggy"

    I did not realize that... Interesting. I wasn't overly impressed with the omega during my limited BP session...

    Omega is dual stamp so it probably won't hit the 52s as well (assuming you were hitting 52s). I should be getting my Iconic today

    There are plenty of asa only bats that aren't "fire".

    I was hitting a mix of 52s,44s and 47s. It wasn't particularly noteworthy compared to the flippers or the new breed (the only demarini utrip I have extended time with)...in it's defense, it was brand new but I preferred the feel of the flipper (brand new) and even the newbreed.

    I only got 8 swings on mine tonight. Feels very good, like the baby of the insane and aftermath. Was really good out of the wrapper, and has a nice end load on it. Would highly recommend it to anyone on the fence about it.

    Sounds interesting... Of course my inner bat whore will demand this after reading/seeing more reviews, I'm sure.
