    Great find IMO. For anyone who was/is a fan. Couple NIW TaylorMade blackouts. Probably some of the last out there.

    They get my vote as the best-looking bat ever made, nice find. I only wish they would've made them in 28oz, I would've hoarded them.

    My brother stashed one in his garage and is keeping the wrapper on until the price comes up. Which for a Blackout is $3.

    Tell him the price has sky rocketed. I’ll offer $80 for it. :)

    Man I still remember paying out my ass a few years ago just so I could get my hands on an og niw TM lol. Still got in. In the wrapper. Cause I'm still messing with my other one. One of my favorite bats. Next to the orange recoil

    Yea I might sell the other one off. I just don’t see myself ever needing both before I quit playing lol. I opened one up and put 50 terrible BP swings on it yesterday. Felt the way a brand new Blackout does... like a frozen piece of pipe..

    I have one of these in a 28. Very underrated bat if you put some time into it IMO

    Is yours a Taylormade Blackout or just a standard black/white balanced? As far as I knew, they only made the Taylormade in 26 and 27.

    It's the Taylormade Blackout and is the one in the pic. It's definitely a 28. I can get a couple of pics when I get home later if you want. I got it from someone in a trade a couple years ago NIW and have rarely pulled it out to use it with the other bats I have. Used it in BP a few times but that's it.

    That's the first one I've heard of, you must have a rare bird. I've seen so many people on here comment that they were only made in 26 and 27 and those are the only two weights I've ever seen for sale. Hang onto yours.

    Yep, same bat, 28oz. I can't even remember what I traded for it. Sits in the garage for the most part. I'll have to break it out for indoor bp sometime this winter.

    Well there she be, first one I've ever seen. Now I just have to go wait on eBay for another one to pop up.

    You ever decide you want it, hit me up and make me an offer. Like I said, it may never get used enough to keep if someone else can.
