ASA and Utrip (each one)? Mainly looking at Worth and Miken since I think I know the others. I'm not up on the new releases for those two companies.

Worth - For Utrip they have reissued the OG Jeff Hall 120 Reload (Blue/Red). If they are as good as the original then they should be considered near the best. If not the new JH Mutant 120 is their best line currently. For ASA it's probably the Mutant 98. There seems to be durability issues with all the new Worths though, so be careful.

Miken - (both ASA and Utrip versions) The new Recoils have gotten mixed reviews. They come in balance and endloaded versions. The 250 is supposed to be for power hitters while the 180s are suppose to be linedrive hitters.

For the others -
Easton - ASA Helmer, Utrip- 2nd batch Helmer Syn + are more endloaded and considered a better buy.

Demarini - Juggernaut

Combat - ASA Anti Virus, Utrip - PM Virus if you can get use to the 10" barrell

Anderson - released the Matrix their first composite bat that has had good reviews, suppose to be stiff at the beginning like the original Synergy 2 line but opens up.

Thanks for the info. Sounds like Worth and Miken both have some question marks on their new ones.

I swing Worth and there hasn't been durability problems for U-trip bats. I'm swinging the New M75 120 and it's better than the mutant 120. Not one person on our team has broke one and 7 guys use them. The other 4 use the red jeff hall mayhem which the guy above about the reissue one. One guy uses the green mayhem. We've only broke 2 U-trip bats compared to 5 or 6 ASA bats. The best ASA worth is the orange or grey. The new 98 m75 needs alot of time for it to break in. IF u like endload go with the jeff hall M7 98.

This blue one with the Japanese Anime style writing is the best utrip worth in your opinion?



I know you guys have to swing worth but would you prefer this over a Synergy if you had the option???

I've swung both the M75 120 and the JH Mutant 120 and hands down the Mutant is better for my swing. But I like endloaded bats so if you don't like the endload don't buy the JH models. But the M75 is a good bat but not better then the OG JH 120 reload. You are correct thought that they can't seem to do any ASA bats well. The M98 wasn't bad but I'd rather swing a Synergy Extended.

The Mutants have some durability issues plus it is a 2 piece bat.
I have a Blue Mayhem M7120 with the green writing. Seems to be pretty good., I don't swing it much since I am mostly a Miken guy but others on the team swing it and like it.

I never liked the JH. It was too endloaded for me
