Default Swinging aluminum

Have any of you considered going back to aluminum bats so you don't have to listen to people bitch and moan? I started swinging a friends Demarini Ultimate weapon which is a shit bat and Im thinking about switching permanatelly to that bat for the rest of the year

I think you should swing wood to make sure you really don't hear any shit.

I think you shouldnt pay attention to the shit

When there is a crime in your neighborhood do you get worried the police are coming for you? Same goes for shaved and painted bats, if you arent using one no need to worry.

No but I actually enjoyed hitting the ball hard with that bat, guys were like "Is he using a single wall?". Its definetelly more of a challenge and a little more fun in my opinion. I busy defending my team somewhere else so im out

I have and the furthest it went was probally 285ft, thats my limit with a wooden bat. Personally I just don't like the feel of wooden bats

I've never swung a wooden bat for softball. I would try it though. As for aluminum, whatever helps me get a hit i'm all for it.

Wood bats are very humbling, I'll tell you that.
