Default Bat Wars down in Orlando - Who Went? What did you swing?

We shat the bed so badly that we had plenty of time and energy to spare for the Bat Wars. They had a bunch of vendors outside selling mostly apparel. Picked up a bunch of cheap dry-fit shirts, some batting gloves, and a hoodie.

You got 15 swings per turn on line and there wasn't much of a line to go back if you wanted to. They had a couple hundred bats lined up to choose from. The goal was to pick one that was broken in at least a little bit to get a better gauge on how it would perform in a game situation.

I had the Miken Psycho in my hands but put it back to keep it down to 3 bats. I should have tried that instead of the Mizuno but I tend to hate Mikens and the one I found was too heavy anyway.

I swung the Mizuno Frenzy which was way too bottle shaped for me. Didn't swing right.

Swung that see through Easton which was nice but nothing special.

Swung the Johnny McGraw Combat Virus Plague which was way too end loaded after taking 10 swings with the even weighted bats listed above. I do like Combats though as they tend to be even weighted. Pity they seem to ignore ASA.

max i take it you swung the 14 inch barrel frenzy? try the 12.5 its much more endloaded and i feel swings better than the 14. the plague is supposedly stupid hot although with a very heavy endload.

I saw an easton reveal in action last night and it did not seem like a bad stick. First guy who swung it jacked a bomb with it and then added another later. They have two more models of it coming out a stealth model and i believe its an extended or flex model.

Worth is also coming out with a new jeff hall bat. I believe its going to be a jeff hall resmondo mutant. along with an asa titan.
TPS has the Triton out and supposedly its very hot. ugly as all hell but supposed to be hot.

I picked up a new glove from worth, and tried to talk them into swapping out my PST there. They wouldn't do it.

Swung the white team resmondo bat which I fucking loved. Also took a couple swings with the black titan which was nice, but I'm sold on that Resmondo mutant. I also picked up the clear easton bat, but didn't take any cuts. Me and 2 guys from Fatman (ex McWorlds) got interviewed for softball magazine.

The Resmondo was perfectly end loaded, I actually got a couple out of that field.

Yea, It was not me hitting bombs.... I let the guys use it!

The one I had at that game was the SRV1. (The green one)
