Default Bats in the cage- what are you swinging.

I'm scared as shit to crack a nice broken in composite at the cage, so I've never actually swung one in there. I have an old Green EST that I beat on in there.

What's everyone swinging in the cage?

I use my PST or any of my composites except for my Original Freak because it about 5 yrs old and very broken in. I only use that one in games.

We pitch to ourselves in the cages so I can swing whatever I want.

Same here, we rent out a couple of the pitching tunnels. Live pitching is so much better then the machines.

OK so yes machines suck, but when you are the only one on this board out in Suffolk, it is kinda hard to find a pitcher to pitch in a tunnel or drive to West Hempstead. If you had to guess, what is the compression on the yellow cage balls.
