Default 2013/14 broken bats? and rate your swing power

Ok anybody break a new bat this year ala bought a NIW 2013 over winter its broke or bought a NIW 2014 this year and now its a paper weight? Side note have not broken a bat this year, only dented/deformed cheap aluminum bats in the past.

personal thoughts on your swing power on a scale of 1-10, 1 being low 10 being high
Example
Suzy catcher on coed first year playing: swing power 1 little dribblers to the pitcher.
Longhaul Bomber: 10

Haven't broken any new bats, but then again not a big bat breaker. My 2 OG CNT+'s have cracked recently, but they were a bit old and were used by some power guys and lil ol me. I have a theory that tells me they were rolled, so think they might have even been a bit pre-mature deaths even then. Haven't used the new ones long or often enough to potentially break.
My power based on your scale would be about 6.832517, or you can just say 7.

I would think occasional clear the fence would put you at 7.

should modify the scale make it less murky lol

# descriptor
1. Dribblers to pitch, lucky to make contact
2.slow rollers infield, Inconsistent
3 good contact occasionally clears infield outfield plays edge of the infield
4 hits well outfield plays short or assigns a roamer
5 line drives/ short fly balls 180'
6 line drives/ fly balls to 280'
7 occasional HR on 300' fence
8 regular HR common on 300' fence
9 FIGHTING TO KEEP THE BALL IN THE PARK (all power no control)
10 Long haul bomber (anytime anyplace I want, controlled fury).

on this scale I am a 5/6
chrometip78 and defos like this.

Started thinking on this after over hearing comp players bitch and moan the new bats are not as good(durable) and breaking. did not know them or the bats they where talking about but curious if others have run into this.

Utrip 44/325s & NSA 44/400s Line drive power hitter maybe an 8 on your scale.
Temps Vary lowest probably 65F highest 100F
Death toll:
13’ 454 balanced – done after est 800 hits (bp’ed & was open to team use utrip/nsa, wife used in coed etc)
13’ psycho – done after est 400 hits (same as 454 pretty much but really crappy durability on this one)
Mv1 – done after 600 hits est (bp’ed with till around 150 then brought into utrip/nsa play open to those who could swing it & was fire from 150 till death)

No slack given, but never abused. BP’ed, team use, etc….no rolling, beating on poles, or any shananigans like that

I've broken 2 aftermaths, j3a, fu dawg and a mercy this year as well as 2 stadium 2's. Used and abused. We put 1000 swings on most of them. The stadium 2's were stadium ball hit only just because it's fun and the cl22 is better.

from you're scale I rate myself at an 8 but I think you're scale doesn't progress quickly enough and then jumps very quickly.

I think if I hit bp more than 5 times/year I might break more bats. No cages, everyone with busy schedule and I am too impatient to hit and chase balls off a tee.

Using your modified scale, I will list myself at 7.

I put this together based off the Coed Rec(play) and the local comp teams I watch locally.

that being said age gender doesnt play into my scale covers all. If I still played comp* the scale would most likely be different. overview of what I was attempting

1-3 is pretty weak generally new players
4-6 is your avg rec, some comp/Sr players that place shots
7-9 comp/Sr players, some rec that for various reasons dont play comp
10 PAID

If we can smooth out the Flow of the scale im for it.

*I dont anymore quit in late 90's teams where bad and full of drama.
