Any news on these as of yet. Looks like the Eastons with the rubber connection between shell and barrel.
Slowpitch bat bros released a video review finally, both tested at 230 in the wrapper but, they said they still felt unbroken in and very stiff, not very good and tiny sweet spot... . Apparently warstic released the first batch and the 25 and 26 oz unknowingly all had this problem and they're swapping them for a new version for free. 27 and 28 oz were unaffected somehow, according to warstic. The balanced one has a really neat handle with basically no knob, they seemed to like it alot for drop pinky grip.
Because compression isn't a direct correlation to performance and it never has been. See my combined works of everytime I've botched about this dumb ass standard on here lol.That was a brutal review. I don't understand how a bat can fail compression right out of the wrapper and still feel stiff and dead. Not only that, they cracked both models almost immediately. As much as I love the tapered knob and looks of the Bonesaber I think I'll be waiting for Warstic to iron out the kinks.

It's not a terrible way to find shaved or rolled bars, but as a performance standard it's not it. All you have to do is watch those exit velo vids the bros do. There's no real consistency by compression grouping. The worst part is testing has all but stopped around here.
I would agree it's atypical, but I'm not a materials engineer. For all I know it could be that way in softball bats because the makers know the current conventional wisdom is that soft feeling equals better performance.Compression definitely doesn't have a linear relationship with performance. But it is directly tied to how a bat feels; low compression = soft spongy barrel, high compression = stiff barrel. The bats in the Softball Bat Bros. video both failed at 230 but they still complained about how stiff they felt and how bad they hurt their hands, that's not typical for anything that tests below 275-300.
There absolutely are 240 bats that out perform 220, but I agree on not listening to reps.Performance is subjective. If a bat works for you, it’s okay. That’s the point of trying new bats.
However I don’t believe 240 bats are higher performing than 220 bats. The bat reps are just trying to sell bats.
Exit velocity is dependent upon learning how to get better results. Hard grounders, spiked down with a raised tee get the highest MPH results. That type of hitting doesn’t translate to the field very well.
Bat dog guy says the sinister is the best and BP hero says it’s the worst; doggy’s swing looks a lot different than BP hero’s. Different bats will work for different people’s types of swings.
I still believe heavier bats and more BP yields better results, but my swing isn’t the same as anyone else’s.
So swing what works best for your swing.
