    A BP buddy of mine has been hitting one. It has around 500 hits on it and it's starting to open up. IMO it's a decent bat but I prefer my Dudley but that's me.

    I have 2 28oz and they have 200 swings a piece on them. Goes through the end field fast and starting to get some distance. Really satisfied with the Wicked.

    I have one on it's way. I was told that these bats were truly hot out of the wrapper, let's hope I didn't get duped again! Guys were supposedly hitting them out, right out of wrapper in Vegas worlds.

    I have one that I picked up last week from Mighty Mike/Alan Tanner at Worlds. I now have about 200 swings on it. It is hitting right there with any senior bats on the market. For instance today I hit 27 of 85 balls out in BP, 300ft fence, no wind. The ball really knuckles off this bat. The bat is still stiff and the barrel doesn't flex like a Dudley but the performance it there. It's now a game only bat.

    I've heard it's similar to the old red Ultra II?

    I think the comparison to the red U2 was about how it's weighted ........................

    Just received my Wicked and it says made in China on the wrapper, I thought these were supposed to be made in the USA? Bat feels really good and I will be BP'ing tomorrow along with the 13" Dudley EL I received on Friday.

    Thin air & great balls, I totally agree! I know guys who have never hit HR's until they played in Vegas. Tried to BP yesterday but couldn't, shoulder was too sore.

    Just got back from Vegas and we didn't play that well -we finished up 3-3 in the 50 Major plus. With the balls we use in Vegas ANY bat will hit them out with no problem. I saw a few guys using some 2017 Miken Freak 30 usssa sticks - doing very well.

    Wicked bats are hot (or a very little bp to break in) out of wrapper but I am abit concerned about the durability....I do not think that they will last long like the 2016 OG dudley lightning EL bats.

    Hit this past Saturday a 27oz it has a least 100 hits on it. I'm very impressed with this Worth model. The weather was in low 80's, with a light breeze.

    My best shots were two, 1 at 370' pulled to LF 2- at 350 dead CF and 3- at 340 LC. These bats are hot out of wrapper. We used mix balls Evil BP, X-Rocks and Stotes balls. The balls does zip through the INF very good and line drives in the gaps just as good. I'll be getting a 28 oz from Alan T, soon.

    FYI, from what I've heard its not sounding good news on the new Dudleys.... We'll see?

    If the new Dudleys don't pan out - you buy the old ones for $119-$130 - then your set brother

    i had an email sent to me from a reputable west coast dealer who said straight up that the new Worth Wicked ( Made in CHINA)
    is simply a painted Addidas sr bat - ???? Im sure some will denounce this, but it makes sense to me. Bigcat - any thoughts ?

    The answer is no...as Wicked has 13.5" barrel....the new Melee 2 bats come in 12" barrel....last year Melee 2 bats come in 12" and 13" barrels.

    Thats what I thought - I have the 13" Melee and the WKD side by side and i can't see the 1/2 " - they look identical to me
    - I will be hitting it this week and we will see what its all about.

    I didn't think Adidas and Worth were owned by same parent company.

    probably more logical comparison is Miken - but the Wicked is not like any Miken I've ever had - nor is it anything like an adidas - nor is it anything like the old Worths nor is it like any senior bat Ive ever had - swings super smooth with just enough end load

    unbelievably ready to go once unwrapped but just keeps getting better and I've only put 140 cuts on mine and just a couple web lines and it's already equal to or better than any fully broken in senior Ive ever swung - great bat!

    hit up Chad for a great SBF member price

    This I like. Is it similar to the EST line in stiffness? Have been really happy with those.

    I have exactly 219 bp swings using a mixture of balls of the tee and the wicked is impressive. But my balanced Adidas Melee beats it by 15-20 feet
    so far....IMO
