    Put about 30 swings on one today. Man that thing is fire.

    Still probably going to sell it though.

    How does this year's DC compare weighting wise to years past

    The pop on the 17' DC ASA was awesome, I just didn't care for the weighting. Not sure if I'll try the 18' since I only play in maybe one ASA tournament each year.

    My bag only has space for four bats, so I only keep four bats in it and I only own four bats I actually use. I have a bunch of brokens in the basement and damaged ones I can't sell because they're pretty effed up (cracks, gouges), might just donate them to someone who is swinging a metal bat in rec league or something. I'll probably have a few monstas for sale soon, just to get my bag from 4 bats to 2 and get a couple of fire sticks out of my basement as well before they explode.

    if I had to pick 4 today: TM, Psycho, Legit XL and ASA Harvey

    edit: the OGs are being kept regardless (PST, M7598, Syn+ and Juggy OTC) for bp and when I can use them.

    4 asa only - Legit XL, Harvey, Pink and Iconic

    Since I’ve always highly respected your opinion I’m forcing your hand, of these 4 ASA what’s the 1 you’d keep?

    legit/harvey hands down for asa over the iconic (and everything else...even though I know they're all an EST/Freak PT) for me...

    The 18 ASA Legit Harvey swings a little stiffer in the handle vs 17 ASA EST XL is the biggest difference.(hence the 2pc connection vs 3pc connection on 17&18 EST & Freak PT/20th annv. line.
    The same goes for the ASA '17 DC41 vs '18 DC41 signature line = stiffer handle)
    The composite and inner barrel technology are all the same though.
    I really like the 18 ASA Harvey the best of the signature lines even though i prefer 12" barrels. The ASA KP F23 was heavily el more than a half oz as projected it seemed and maybe I received a dud but it wasnt as good as ASA Harvey imo. Just my 2 cents here...carry on

    So since miken 12” freak is balanced and the worth 12” is balanced, I’m guessing one will be a little more endloaded than the other, now I’ll wait for some more reviews until the next purchase
