    BpHero has a video.

    It’s a twisted mistress with a composite handle.

    Haven’t tried it yet though.

    it has paraflex barrel vs APC in the TM/HB Cartel (I don't know what the difference is as to the construction)...feel is noticeably different from the TM and HB Cartel for me...like(d) the TM but love the comp handled Cartel more...the SI has the paraflex barrel which is what is/was on the newbreed and DS. doesn't break in as quick as the APC barrel'd TM and HB Cartel in my opinion but I feel like it'll be reeeeaaallly good when it opens up...it has already gotten noticeably better in the first 100 cuts I've put on it. idk...

    What weight do you use? I have that 26.5 one for sale here and it really goes through the zone fast.

    Watched the BPHero review earlier this morning. Hopefully I can get my hands on one to try out soon. Haven’t swung anything Demarini newer than ‘16.

    IS there any comparisons between the Standard Issue and the 12" Malice?

    Is the handle anything like true Juggys? (OG , J2, 2018/2019 DB44 - You know that nice whip)

    I don't think it's an og juggy like whip but the handle is more "forgiving" than the alloy handle on the malices, imo...

    Idk if it’s just me but I feel the difference in feedback between the comp and alloy handles...part of it is the stiffness but there’s something else there in the feel (however that gets "transferred" from barrel to handle on contact) that I would would rather swing the comp handled bat over the alloy handled bat...i don’t feel like theres noticeable flex in the SI so much as that difference in feedback/feel makes it seem so? Idk...a personal preference thing...both bats are great. I’ve put plenty of hits on both to know that...idk if this makes any sense....on a side note, I wish my 26.5 SI was a 27.5 :/

    Thanks.. me too. 27.5.. it's the lightest 26.5 bat ever.. but damn it hits good.


    Side note, I did weight the handle.. and Demarini handles weigh an ounce heavier than every brand I've weighed.. miken, worth, LS so, that really says something about the barrel weighting.

    And if it would stop raining, I could hit the malice ext, side by side, with the SI sometime...
