Default Rattles?

I have a Jeff Hall reload 09, I have probably put about 250 swings on the bitch since Christmas. I have taken Bp inside at the cages, and used a various collection of real softballs, not cage balls. My question to all of you, is Do composites always develop a rattle? If not, does my bat suck, or is it a bad thing? Help me out, this is the first time I have owned a real bat, like this and just need some help understanding all the pros and cons on bats and such.

The rattle is just the composite pieces that have broken off, the rattle is a good thing, means your bat is broken in.

Hmm, must be a thing about being in Florida, because I was doing the same:



This was at the Orlando (aka Millers) Ale House. Place is incredible.

you should just stop letting me mash the hell out of the balls when i use your bat and the rattles will not occur
