I hope this bat is good. I just sent a synergy 2 & a 2008 Flex back to Easton for 2 ASA Helmers.

Rock the ASA is AWESOME mine is at home if you need it. Breaks in much quicker than the USSSA version. You will have to get used to the short barrel though.

ASA Helmer is a good bat but be careful of the weight. My 26oz weighs 25.5oz with a Knobcuff on it! I need to swap it for something heavier as I keep hitting right of the endcap.

Mac: barrel is like a PST? If so no big deal I hit it on the sweet spot every time!

Your right Bono, not this year or even last year for that matter. Probably last time I hit like a real man was when I played for you in commack in 2005 the night before I left for the worlds.
