Default Cartel....

Ok, So the other night I decided to give Demarini another shot.... Last Demo I bought was the Yellow Evo to give you an idea.

I tried a buddies 26oz. Cartel and fell in love with it....

2 questions.... First, His 26oz on the knob was orange and his 27 was blue...What's the difference.... Second, with U-Trip changing bat standards is it worth buying one for a season or is U-Trip going to grandfather bats already out there....

There is no grandfathering as I believe I read, but I am expecting our local leagues to not enforce, only sanctioned tournies and the ilk.

Its well worth it, my demo I got is a 26 and it has a blue knob. One of my team mates has always been a miken fan and he can't put down my cartel. I got around 400 cuts on mine and it spits hot fire

Now, have you hit one that's not a demo? I am ready to pull the trigger...

Maybe the knobs color might be a no return or returnable

The orange knob and endcap was for the prototypes and GTL team issued bats. And no these are not returnable (to the best of my knowledge). The blue knob and endcaps were the bats produced for retail sale. And yes my bat with the orange knob absolutely spits fire, and also is the one that JT25 hit with.
