Crush just did that today with 3 Over. Hellcat fought hard with a respectable 11 just fell short. Hellcat going into the bag for Indoor Play starting tomorrow. Best bats for mush balls they use there.

Next Round

The hellcat well I guess we have a gate crashes at the party. The midload on that hellcat doesn’t bother you. Or is it that it feels more like an endload bat.

Most of the Double Barrel line swing similar IMO. Would say more mid-loaded for sure.

Did a round against the Obscura after for some additional swings. Would swing it over that bat based on today's performance.

Not ideal conditions, stiff wind from right to left, slight hangover from Xmas party. Show must go on.

DC41 sent home the repaint Daisy Cutter DB44.

Score doesn't show but the Resmondo Helmer hit the best line drives and seems to be opening up but the Gamer DNA Legacy moves on to the semi-finals with 2 gatecrashers.

Stiff wind pushing in. Any balls that had some lift got deflated. Crush made quick work out of the DNA OG.

DNA Legacy (Gamer) sweated it out with a battle against the DC41. After the DC41 having a 3 point lead the Legacy needed an OTF to force extra round. And so it was the difference of not just over but hitting top of fence and falling OTF to force the OT. 1st round of extra 3 balls ended again in a tie. Then went to single ball round with the Legacy getting the point with the DC41 hitting the wall of wind to dash its hopes.

Finals will determine who will play the next round of loser bats @ later date.
Consolation 3rd place will happen just to get the swings.

Another day of stiff winds with added cross wind. Balls were moving from L to R about 10 feet or more

Crush hit one over but the Gamer smoothed its way in with consistent 1 hoppers to stay in contention.

Did not do the other round listed previously. Since this is a double elimination wouldn't be fair.

Moving onto the main bracket next.

Early cuts to loosen up and focusing on line drives. Well those swings crept into this round. Points were lower since most were line drives and lift wasn't there today.

CJ428 eeked out a win and Grunt in OT round with 2 one hoppers to win.
No OTF today with only gatecrasher was Obscura. A little off my game today.

Anarchy Redemption - 2pts
Worth CJ 428 - 3pts

Monsta Grunt Style - 6pts
Easton Obscura - 5pts

Stiff wind in and to right made this one of the most difficult rounds. Went into OT with Backlash one hopping to the win on last swing over one of last year's gamers the Easton Helmer Border Battle

Boombah T3 moves on but barely. Will blame the winds but the LS TPZ is not in same breath as the LS 4TF.

No OTF or Gatecrashers as the wind was just killing distance. It was line drive to fence day.

Suncoasr BLash2 - 5pts
Easton Helmer BB - 4pts

Louisville TPZ - 1pt
Boombah T3 - 2pts

Tie going into balls 5 to 7 but Bombardier did just that with longest on day to send Anti to Loser bracket 2nd Stage.

Monsta Bombardier - 6pts
Combat Antivirus - 4pts

4TF was constant performer with scores on every swing. Blew out Nihilist out of the gate.

Demarini Nihilist - 5pts
Louisville 4TFallen - 10pts

Derby hit great line drives but couldn't muster enough points to edge out Banger who banged one OTF.

Monsta Banger - 7pts
Combat DerBoys - 4pts
Screenshot_20230103_225452.jpg

This one below was tied after 7 balls @ 8pts each, 2nd set of 3 balls was enough for the Militia with an OTF and 1gatecrasher to move on.

Anarchy 22Day - 9pts
Monsta Militia -13pts

3 more Rounds to the Sweet 16. But will pause that for the bats that lost to have their 2nd chance.

Demar Flipper Blue from Board Bro Arthur Itis pulled ahead on last swing with OTF to edge the Combat Revolt

Monsta Gamble pulled out of the gate early with 6 points on 4 swings. Those 2 points early was the difference with the Lazer chasing.

One more Round with Monsta WBuffalo v Demar Custom Flipper Yellow. Then back to loser bracket stage 2.

I have both of those platforms as well, the end load on the Legacy is very smooth, I just wish mine would open up more.

I've said it before to another board member and someone I've seen on the field. Hit some 44 cor balls for like 20 to 30 hits. Mine turned another level after that, so did that other player. But don't blame me if your a beast of a swinger and it breaks!

Anarchy Lazer made quick work against the old schooler AntiVirus with 2 gate crashers and 6 out 7 balls scoring points. The Lazer will square up against the Nihilist in next round.

Was supposed to have a 2nd set of bats but grabbed wrong ones. Did hit the Easton Hellcat ASA for some swings and looks like it hit another gear. Will see since these Ghost Barrels seem to come in different waves of performance.

Battle that went into OT Round with Revolt pulling away with a gatecrasher to move on. Possible sleeper of this round.

Screenshot_20230117_113629.jpg
Another round that went into OT with the Redemption starting to show signs of opening up. The TPZ hit some knucklers but fell short with them.

White Buffalo with an OTF, sent home one of the last few Eastons in the hunt.

Stiff wind from left to right causing many lifted balls to shift about 10 to 15 feet to the right.

Believe first scoreless round. Buffalo lifted too many and line drives weren't long enough to get hop to fence. 22 A Day had only gatecrasher of the rounds.

Took 4 OT rounds (13 swings) but the Derby Boys was able to edge out the Anarchy Redemption. Doing it for Normy!

Both rounds came down to final balls in ways.

Nihilist led early but the Lazer tied it after 7 to force 3 ball OT. Here the Lazer answered with 5points and 1 OTF. Nihilist on last swing had chance to tie with OTF. Last ball bounced off the top of fence and fell forward in front to lose by 1 point.

Easton Helmer Border Battle on last swing 7 put one over to end the Revolts chances.

Combat Derby Day

Derby Boys ousted the Anarchy 22 quickly with an OTF. Moving into Finals.

Anarchy Lazer with 2 Gatecrashers held off the Helmer BB ending any Easton chances to get to the final four. Still love the line as these bats seem to fit my swing overall.
Screenshot_20230122_104737.jpg

Battle in Final with Derby Boys again going OTF to pull the win and move on. The Lazer gave it all but fell short on 2 miss hits that we sharp line drives. Both barrels on these are hot right now.

Combat had a good thing when they came out with this tech. Think they just went to overboard with paint schemes weights and overall production issues.

The Primo lives up to its name so far. Edging out the Warthog by a gatecrasher. Both hit OTF with Warthog being the longest but to no avail.

Anarchy Streets edged out the Juggy in OT due to Juggy not pointing in OT. All line drives that fell short of fence.
