Default cracked bat

I cracked my new Extended last night, (about 300 hits on it)
What are the odds of me getting an 08 Flex in return?
Do you think it will count against my return if I just got it in May?
The crack in vertical, (along the barrel), is it worth just keeping it and hitting with it until it breaks?

Thanks for your help

Default keep it

Vertical cracks are whenthe bat gets super hot....even if its 3+ inches long....once it starts horizontal then its done...you will know it by the sound. I had an original Synergy with a crack that must of lasted another 200-300 at bats....Extendeds wont last as long but dont be surprised if you get another 100 Ab's

Yes it counts against your return, they stamp it Warranty Replacement.
No shot of getting an Flex, big difference in MSRP and it's not like Easton doesn't have new Extendeds sitting around.

I would keep swinging it till it shatters but that's just me.

After all that I have heard about them, I really ydon't want an 08 Extended though

It'd be better than the metal bats you're pulling out your ass for tourneys.

What is mikens policy on returns? I cracked my freak at that last NIT. It's about a 3" crack right below the barrell. I'm kind of afraid to swing it again, I don't want it shattering and hitting either me or someone else.

I've got a 6" crack at the end of my CNT thats been there for over a month - Yes it's gotten worse but the bat is super hot - Keep hitting it until it explodes.
