Default What to do???

So I needed an ASA bat on short notice, went to local Craigslist, bought a 28oz ASA Miken Ultra (SOULTA) and went to game right after meeting the guy...long story short the bat was way better than any bat we had, even my ASA DB and my ST98...brought it home, weighed it and low and behold the bat weighs 26.5oz...I never thought to ask the tool I bought it from because I only paid $140 and it looked like it had 5 hits on it...

I text him ask him if it was cut and says, YEP by local guy (who I find out happens to be law enforcement)...

He won't take bat back, NOW WHAT???

I ain't using it as I had my fun back in the day so what does anyone do with the bat, I don't wanna sell it locally and wind up having someone use it against me...anyone think I can return it???

Ask the seller again, then when he refuses.

Cut it in half knob to end cap take pics post it on craigslist as is, listing who you bought it from. Probably wont get you any money back but little bit of public shaming should make you feel better. Dont mention the Doctor tho, no sense putting future money in his pocket.

Miken might want it just to see how the work was done if you go that route might get a credit towards a legal bat.

I would be pissed. I would make an effort to get my money back from the seller. If not, maybe use it as a teaching tool to impress upon the local league just how easy it is to do, how common it is, and how you can't tell simply by looking at a bat and hopefully help persuade them to start testing bats if they haven't already.

Cut your losses. You never asked & you bought it as is off craigslist. Sucks, but it is what it is.

I’ve sold all my dirties. I used them for HR derbies/outlaw games, but I always found myself tempted to use them…I have used them on several occasions in league play against other teams with dirty players.

Not to condone it but there is always ebay. There are a bunch on there all the time. Of course, make sure to describe the bat as being shaved.

put it on ebay and describe it as a homerun derby bat only. People will buy it for sure.
