Default always switching bats

Does anybody switch bats every game like I do or Am I just a weirdo? It seems that every day is different. Some days i can't hit the ball out of the infield with my Jeff Hall and then I will switch to my SYN2 and the ball comes off alot better. Then on other days I can't get the ball out of the infield with my SYN2 and then when I switch to my Jeff Hall the ball flies. Sounds crazy but it seems like every day is different. I have like 4 bats and even my teammates think Im crazy when I have 4 at bats all with different bats.

I think you are just a weirdo. I only switch for different associations.

OG Freak in ASA until next year and my stealth+ for USSSA until it cracks.

During BP I use other bats, but only to break them in.

Leagues I just swing my PST.

Tourneys I switched between my freak plus and the synergy until I cracked the freak.

I do have guys on my team that swing a new bat just about everytime they get up.

That's the most obvious conclusion.

Also, you have two drastically different bats. The Syn2 is very even weighted which will swing very light. The JHM is very end loaded which will feel heavy. One day you're stronger so the JHM feels better. Another day, vice versa.

Jackpot switches bats like a true whore. Really bad.

If I find I'm not hitting well I'll switch from my Syn-2 to my B1-98. It's just a small mental thing to get me back on track. Usually works.
