Seems like it... with Pure being so new, I think they are still trying to figure it out. I don't think they expected for the company to become this big so quickly. Word on the street is they have purchased more machinery to keep up with the demands, but who knows.They're totally the monsta of utrip as their bats aren't available and you can't get a timeline on them.
Great out of the wrapper.
Durability seems to be a hit or miss, but I had one with 4.5K+ swings before it finally snapped in half.
If you want to order one you will have to wait 8+ weeks for one at the moment, no that is not a typo.
If you want one now, be ready to pay a premium.
Compression testing fails rather quickly, falls in the line with all the other 2018 model bats.
Has webbing at the handle issues, some are cracks, some are just webbing. Lot of misinterpretation of cracking vs webbing for these.
I was hoping that was the case with my handle, that it was just flexing but it broke good lol.
So Ive went with several Integritys. I really like their performance so far. Made me sell some Eastons
Great post. Very informative.I went through(2) Integrity that both cracked around the handle like mentioned. One at 75 swings and the other in about 25. Awesome customer service from my experiences though. They didn't count them against my returns and even got a free pair of batting gloves with the second one. I think his name was Craig, but he said there was a bad batch that he was kind of waiting on more to come back to narrow down which ones had the problem. I loved it but once I got my third return I sold it immediately. I have a lot of friends that still have them. They haven't had a problem and have 700-1000+ swings easily. The paint is about gone and they fail compression in the 180 range. They're definitely hot and if you're using any newer 2 piece, it will take some getting used to. I'm currently hung up on the Branch and F30 until further notice. Lol
I’ve tried many of the new line utrip bats out. My expectations were really high from reviews on social media etc. Finally tried a buddy’s Integrity when it arrived NIW and I (we) was very unimpressed. He continues to put hits on it during BP. At about 300 it’s “opening up”. For me it’s behind Worth/Miken, Easton and revamped LS stuff. Maybe it didn’t fit my swing. Any decent bat should be “hot” at 500 swings. So if his Integrity opens up at that hit count it still won’t change my opinion on it. Performance isn’t worth the quality issues, arrival delays and the top dollar prices.
Probably didn't fit my swing. Luckily my buddy's doesn't have the cracking handle issue where it either snaps in half or gradually stress cracks little by little. Not knocking the company in any way, I always root for the small business owner who is growing. With that comes growing pains, including quality issues, I get it. Simply stating that the performance for me, was not as good as majority of other bats out that I have tried and I was surprised because of the feedback or "hype" on them.i have had 2 and both was hot from 1st swing, only pure i have heard taking that long is the fuzion

Anybody else out there still waiting for their Fuzion order to show up in the mail. Been told twice now that my order will be shipped in the next couple weeks, and still have not seen anything. Wondering if this is a common issue for other people out there with popular size preorders
I called the company and they said, the issue they were having, strangely is getting their weighting right... seems they can't.
