    Bought the hype and picked up a Z1000 (orange and grey model ). One question are they game ready or do they need a few BP before games.

    you mean the lloyd? if it's the lloyd you will need to do bp with it. They kind of swing on the heavier side for me since the el is like 1 oz i think.

    LLoyd is 0.5oz EL, i think it was ready from the get go...love the way the 28 feels...and I usually swing a 27 EL...

    It won’t hurt to BP it a little...but i wouldn’t hesitate to bring it straight to games

    Swing anything like a newbreed? I'm getting one in the next few days... Sounds like this is the one of the only durable lines this year.

    Can't remember...last one I swung was the 17 and it was a 26...hardly any kind of loading .. Felt almost balanced to me. Between that bat and the Stovall, I'd take the Stovall

    It will not feel like the newbreed at all... it feels much more like a 1 piece easton if i had to compare it to anything. Balls jump of if it when you don’t even realize it... and for the most part have been durable.

    Chad has some in stock and I’d junp on one if your looking to try a new bat that has the performance of the Miken / Worths but a completely different feel to it

    This is coming from a guy that has swung Demarini for the past 10 years

    Thanks man! I ordered one yesterday ... I live down in Mexico so I'll have to wait until Aug 8 to get it swinging. Once I do I will definitely post my impressions. I appreciate the feedback! It all gets me more excited to get it going. Just from a physics standpoint it makes sense that the sweet spot be the most loaded portion of the bat, maybe the midload will be the next rage in bats?

    Bro, you have the same bat just different loading. Buy a Stovall! Sell the one you don´t want, keep both, or trade, or none of the above. Buyers remorse is fatal unfortunately...
