Discussion: New Hyper Z pretty impressive!

Good to hear. Been waiting on one for awhile. Bat was suppose to be in hand the first week of February. Looks like the middle of March.

I got to swing one in Vegas. Usually swing a 27 ounce balanced Z3000. The one I got to swing in Vegas was 26 ounce.

Was told they swing heavy. The 26 felt great. How big is the sweet spot. Been reading that they feel more balanced than end load.

Any insight on the bat would be appreciated. Glad you like it.

Ron Parnell gets my vote. Hard working, great team guy. What I was impressed by the most is he is a very humble guy. Don't know him. Seen him play. Was watching one of Sunnyvale games in Vegas. In between games we started talking. I am a LS guy. He took the time to pull out the Hyper Z from his bag. Talked with me about the bat and other things. Great guy.

Had the pleasure to play with John Heller. Same thing. Works at the game. Humble. Will take the time to talk with anyone.

Both are great hitters, fielders, and are great people to talk with.

Discussion: Bat Flex

There was a write up if bats flex or not on another board. When you see bats flex in a photo or in slow motion it depends on the shutter speed of the camera.

Someone stated, that Chris Larsen from DeMarini did a test on flexing of a bat. He stated something like, the strongest player can not get the bat to flex.

I've stated that is bull. I would swear I could feel the bat flex at the handle. That is why I stick with one piece bats. Just couldn't get use to the handle flex.

The conversation went back and forth to yes and no of the handle flexing.

Finally I came to Chris Larsens conclusion when someone posted a picture of an airplane propeller. In my opinion the bat handle does not flex. The person who posted the picture stated it depends on the shutter speed of a camera. The propeller blades were bent in the picture.

Also don't like the 2 strike, the next one has to be fair rule. Especially for the bigger tournaments. I don't care what anyone says. This does not save time.

To the exception of #1. Courtesy runner shouldn't be allowed until the runner is on second. Most hits are singles. The team with a courtesy runner coming from the 3rd base side dugout. I think it would be less distance to jog to second base than it would to go to first base. LoL.

Discussion: Worth Legit need reviews

Bruster25. You were the one hitting the bombs. I was a tad behind you. But seriously, the Legit is legit. Bruster25 put a show on with the Legit. The balls went high and far. The base hits he hit were missiles through the infield. I'm glad you finally listened to me and decided to pick one up Primo. The 2 gringos went loco last weekend. Worth has a winner. The bat is sick.

Bruster, can you compare it to the Z3000?
