Default Got $99 Problemz

heres my list of the best $99 bats out now... (some are cheaper)
mixed bag of balls (52/275 - 47/425)
*new out of wrapper*

utrip one piece bats:
B2*
L5(2013)
Balance Blackout
End Load Blackout*
Combat DB*
Combat AA*
Worth Filthy
Worth JH454*

Ranks:
overall winner: Blackout (both). took a bit to break the EL in but the balanced one was just nasty. smashing everything.
feel: Combats with the B2 close behind

utrip 2 piece:
B1 (13, 14)*
Wanted (14)
z2k balance

Ranks:
overall winner: B1 2014
feel: B1 2014

I will say the wanted is great if you can consistently hit the SS.

to much flex in the z2k for me. I think if you have a powerful quick swing, stick to 1 piece bats. imho.

asa (puke)
wanted*
potent
b3*
b4
L6
lx*
F5
blackout
filthy

overall was a tie for me.... L6, F5, Blackout

feel: b4... just no pop like the rest. it felt very good though.


these bats I swung in the last few days. I was either the 1st to hit them or I got them on the second round.

Im a firm believer in spending wisely and not wasting money on the flashy whats hot now bats. In all fairness, I like to swing whats cheap and durable. just my 2 pennies.

I like the L6 more and more as it gets seasoned. Just don't play much ASA to do it, but I think I may start swinging the L3 I got this winter. It was only $115 at the time so it is close.

Blackout for trip based on your criteria.

Old and worn > new and shiny

Good info as usual HB.

I remember when you could get st100s and sy100s for $99 talk about a deal. 34/30 dirty will get the job done.

My personal favorite if it's still $99 is the derby chris grienert

I have not hit those yet

So for the question missing is: where did I get these bats. Google. I didn't buy most of these.

I'm currently mentoring a team. And teaching them how to hit. These kids (19-24 yrs old) went out on my advise and bought these bats.
