Default Raw Steel vs. White Steel

Looking to pick up a new singlewall bat. I have a 26oz White Steel that hits great but its a team bat so its beat up and doesnt have much of a lifespan left. Anyone know about the Raw Steel or should I just get another White Steel?

Go with another white steel,the raw is good but doesn't have the pop of the whitesteel. The barrel of both are the same,the handles are different.The raw, if I'm not mistaken, is a stiffer aluminum handle where as the White Steel is the composite handle.

I am wrong about the handle of the raw steel, the handle is aluminum.

there are such conflicting opinions on this bat, I was looking into one myself. I hear on one hand it hits with the WS but is more durable, then on the other I hear the WS outhits it. I still may try one.

I too have heard conflicting reports of each...I have a white steel and I love it...but you might want to take into consideration that the white steel has a composite handle...whether the extra flex helps or not, i don't know, but i do know that some leagues ban the white steel cause the handle is composite?! If your league doesn't care about the composite handle then in my personal opinion i would go with a white steel cause i know they hit well, if you need a totally metal bat try the raw steel out!!!! cheers!!

Booch whats up, it Aj one of the twins, I bought a raw steel for my bro as a x-mas gift, so we will have one around if you wanted to try it out first hand before buying one, i think the season starts around the mid of april so. We have hit with it and the both of us like it, I personally didnt really like the white steel I prefered the f2, and the 375 from last year, but the steel feels real nice so far.
