Default Review of new and old

After hitting the new Derby Boys, I've come to this......

Combatant>Pure>Avarice>New DB>old DB>OGGV>Plague>GS>Spiked

this is my opinion only. I hit the new DB with a mix of 52/275 balls. Nice feel, good exit speed, but it didn't have the "ewphum" power/feeling to it. nice overall though.

I'm assuming by your other bats listed that you're talking about utrip? i was not THAT impressed either by the utrip DB

yeah just utrip based reviews here. I will give Combat this, they make the best "feeling" barrels in the game. If giving the choice of what to swing, new stamped, I'd go with the Pure then the Avarice. I could be wrong though after more swings with the DB. I was in the lonely group of og DB lovers.

I have a DB275 on the way. Don't know if I made the right choice (over the ASA), we will see. Sticking with Easton and venturing into Mizzy land for Utrip...at least where new stamps are required. Otherwise, OG CNT+ gonna be the mainstay.

Oh yeah, forgot I got a Utrip Pure too. So many damn bats.

I've been on a combat kick lately. I can get a virus plague for $40 good bat yeah/nay?

Like 1 piece solid sticks with .5-1oz EL. Yellow derby is pretty hot, but I need something with more ass behind it at 28-30oz

I’m not quite sure if I do or not yet honestly. I guess you could say I’m trying to broaden my horizons.

Curious of what combat has to offer. Mccraw & myself have the same hitting style/grip so I figured I’d start with this. Combatant, pure, avarice, & jm26 wood are all on the list to try for nsa league play.

This was a steel vendor at work who's a combat addict. We swung a plague, combatant, & pure today on lunch.

Honestly the 500ish hit pure was the best out the 3 to me with the combatant right behind it. I might even step out on a limb & say the pure is better than the new derby. $99 w/ a new stamp at kelleys is going to be hard to resist.
