Looking to purchase either the Demarini one (if there is a preference on which year is the recommended model) or the Easton Salvo SRV5. Thoughts on either model.

I think the .12 model is the best out of the 3 I have swung. I was not big on the Salvo, owned a 260z and 28oz. Maybe I gave up on them to early? I like ( also became a team bat) is the Easton srv6bh. Really hot bat. Just my thoughts, but to each his own!

I used the salvo for the first time a couple weeks ago. I usually play semi fast pitch but recently went back to slow pitch and that's when I tried it because I was struggling(pulling everything foul) in slow pitch. Salvo was 28oz and my Miken is 26oz, that might be he reason. Either way...LOVED it!! Will probably be purchasing a salvo in the near future.

I have never swung the Demar but the Salvo is legit. I swung one for a while and it stuck around with all my utrip bats. The new ones are even better.

Another for the .12 and MLC, both great, just different feel. .12 feels slightly softer, has a 12" barrel, and swings more end loaded on the heavier weights compared to MLC. Swagger if you like significant end load.

I tend to like Eastons more. But my preferences may differ from yours. The chances are high.
