Default Nice surprise

Got home from work and my 18yo girl hands me a bat still in box. Said she won it on a FB giveaway from Dudley. Not sure what I'm gonna do with it since I'm 41 but bp is gonna be fun tomorrow. Prob keep it since we have a few any bat tournaments every year. Really curious how much dirt this thing is going to pick up since its so dang tacky.

Been a while since I hit a 12 inch barrel. Any idea about durability on these?

Being a Senior assn bat, durability may not be that great. They make them livelier than other bats, often at the expense of any sort of durability.

Put about 75 cuts on it today. Pretty legit bat. Ball was coming off it pretty good in the cage. Starting to web up. Need to get it out on a field and see what kind of distance the grip spin produces.

Ive personally hit this bat (about 10 swings) with 44/375's Dudley thunder. Average distance 350'.
The seniors hit 60/550's (I think) ssus balls... Average about the same distance with half the power.
