    I wanted to get one of these this year. Has anyone swung one yet? What is the verdict??

    I liked it. Sweetspot started pretty small but really opened up after some good bp rounds. The endload weighting felt much like the 16 Fulk endload.

    Here are some clips from the day we took it out of the wrapper.

    Good sound. When did it change for you, after a 100 or so cuts? I have hit 44/400's and 52/275's which come off ok. What softballs were you hitting in the video?

    Any others thoughts on the Crush. I have a 27oz EL, .It got a decent enload but not super heavy.

    My endload Crush has climbed up into the #2 spot in my bag, only behind my Blue Line Helmer which has twice as many swings on it. I like the feel and sound of the crush. It has started to open up nicely around 100 swings. 50 or so with stadium balls off a tee.

    I’d say the 100 swing mark is a very good estimate. We were hitting mostly classic ms, some 44/400 freedom balls, and some evil 52 lites.

    To me the endload was mostly a half ounce el feel. I’m sure it might be more pronounced in the heavier weights.

    Thanks Nickham10 and Bakesta72. Any others?

    If it would stop raining down here I might be able to get some more cuts in.
