I thinned it down a little, but offhand:
Reaper and Demarini's look the best on that list. Anderson, Miken and Worths the next in line.

There is a difference in White Steel and Raw Steel depending on what kind of balls I think. Check back on this thread later and there will be some answers from those that know. Kind of odd on the Reaper being on this list unless it is one of the single-wall metal ones. Again, someone may be able to clarify better than I.

Single Wall Bat Definition: A single wall bat is a bat that has a hitting surface composed of one continuous, single shell or layer composed entirely of the same material without the use of any type of glue or bonding system. Any bat that is more complex than this definition, is NOT single wall bat.
Thats on the list as well dont know if it helps. And we use Thunder Heat (Gold Dot?) balls i believe. thanks again

If you like a lot of endload, white steels will do work.

Thanks for the suggestions, Actually got to hit with a White Steel today as well as a few Salvos, WS definitely the best. Any word of any differences in the WS vs the regular Steel. Also i notice on Demarini's website DeMarini White Steel the pics are of the regular Steel.

you can straight demoralize teams with a cyclone. i ain't bullshitting either.
We actually do got a cyclone white with like yellow lettering i believe, never tried it i think its only like 32inch or rly light maybe, ill give it a shot though.

He is bullshitting you although he says he isn't.


I may be bullshitting you, but when you swing the Cyclone you will know right off.
