Default Mattingly Beast 120

Just got the demo bat and heres my review

Pros

1) I like the V-grip better than I thought I would. I never seem to line my knuckles when I swing a normal bat because its just not comfortable. The V-grip makes this easy.

2) End cap says locked and loaded which I think means the end cap can't come off but Im not sure.

3) Ball came off the batter better than I exspected and I was hitting some very hard line drives with it.

Cons

1) Not sure how the break in will be since you really can't rotate the bat.

2) Small sweetspot

3) Price, company hasn't prooven anything yet to be charging the $325



I would be glad to answer any questions you guys have about the bat.

I'm not sure but on the bat there is an arrow that says locked and loaded. I took a look at the endcap and its a little molded into the bat so I think that anyone that would try and take it off would have some strong signs of tampering on the end cap. I'm no saying it can't come off I'm saying that it would be obvious if it did.

The more I use this bat the more I love it, I hit really good with it tonight. I sounds really dumb but they V-grip has helped my swing.

I really thought they would suck based on what I heard and based on my personal opinion. After swinging it Im getting rid of my Wrath120 and Virus120 because I will never swing them
