Which 1 bat will carry the test of time?

I ask cause I hear Easton, Combat, and Mizuno players say that the Z+ is nuts. So I got to thinking when numerous guys said the og+ was top dawg. Then the jhm7120.... so on and so on.

Or will there always be another bat come along and be "it"

Thoughts?

Always the next best thing. I'm sick of this "hot out the wrapper" crap to. I have yet to peel the wrapper of a bat & it be what I consider hot.

I hit one @ 300' within 5 swings with my DB275. For me, that is saying something. But while it still has some rough spots, it hasn't grown much. And I wouldn't call it an 'it' bat either.
Everyone loves the Z. I have never been a big LS fan, and it is so hyped, I just avoid it whether it is good or not. Swung one once and didn't care for it.
Blackout may be my 'it' bat, but time will tell. Haven't liked a new type of bat from my norm in awhile. And it really isn't that different of a style.
I get my HR's on occasion, but I am not a HR hitter so IDGAF. If it feels good and has good pop, that is all I need.

Honestly it’s hard to have a best bat conversation without the mention of a scn2. It’s probably the best all around bat of all time imo.

New stamp wise I think the sp12sy100 (or st100 if you like 2pc) is similar. Bp, game it, share it….it’s all good. Great feel, great pop, durable, & most everyone I let hit with it falls in love no matter what they’ve been hitting with. Over 200 hits it just gets hotter & hotter.

I was only referring to newer bats myself. Everyone knows the scn2 is the best all-time. And if they don't, they should.

Ultras aside, the SCX2 was the goods.

the it bat for me even tho I didnt get to swing one will always be a Titanium bat. In 4 yrs I can move to sr and use the Ultra2, but still will wonder about the old Ti bats.
