Default Demarini Stadium

Just picked one of these up for $170 from a guy who was in a bind and cash strapped. Looks like it has a couple hundred swings on it but in very good condition overall.

Anybody have reviews on these? They are selling in the 250 range on ebay. I don't really need a utrip bat, I'm not putting down the duo anytime soon. Is the stadium worth keeping?

Stadiums are selling for $250 (NIW shipped) on closeoutbats.com. I can't give much of a review because I never had a chance to hit my Stadium outdoors because I sold it. Bat is stiff and seemed like a good utrip bat, but I picked up the SCX2 for $100 and put $130 back in my pocket.

Just saw that, looks like they only have .28 and .30 oz stadiums on closeoutbats. This is a 27, seems like ebay 's completed listings are in the 200-250 range. Softball fans has these on their price guide as "used" - $220 to $265.

I think I'll give it a shot at bp, worst case scenario I should end up with my money back.

I tried one out because of the hype, was not impressed at all. Put close to 150 swings on it and just didn't like the feel. Duo is best 2 piece out imo

A few of us swung it at worlds last year during bat wars and nobody was impressed. The bat seemed stiff and the ball didnt jump off it. I didnt hear anybody there other than Chris Larsen (long haul bomber champ) say they liked it.

I felt the same way about it at bat wars, the ball just didn't come off it like I expected after hearing everything about it. The Demarini Legend is a much better feeling Demo bat and can had for almost half the price.

That was the Larry Carter model. Is that the legend? Mooney had one too. Never impressed me.
