The Dirty
I was told I could start talking about it, so here goes. We hit the final version of the The Dirty bat from Combat and Kellysultimatesports. It was about 55 degrees and this was 7:30am Sunday morning after 3 games on Saturday. You might could say we were a little stiff. We took the wrapper off the bat and it was good from the get go.

There a couple of videos on line with Steve Imlay age 63 1/2 and Fred Purvis 65 1/2 hitting.

Bat was too light for me 27 balanced, I would rather swing a heavier end load. 5 swings, 4 absolute lazers and 1 bomb. I am sure sure how many swings we put on it, probably 100. Not a mark. It is my understanding the bat will be in production the 20th of this month. The bat currently has the approved senior stamp. I have swung Reebok with very good success for two years. I will be making the switch to The Dirty and I am under no obligation to do so.

Any and all further questions should be directed to Mike Kelly.

When can we start to pre order this bat? Have the old yellow combat need to get a back up. My gray USA ultra 2 just is not cutting it.

If you go to their website, Mike is taking preorders. From my limited observation and relying on the comments of others, this bat swings like the original grey combat.

I seen the video of the Dirty dismorning on Mike Kelly's web web site. The Dirty hit well with super+ power hitters. I ordered one last week.

Are these bats already being shipped out or will it take several months to receive them once ordered.

I watched the videos....wondering what was the true compression of the balls and what kind were they?.....does the bat come in standard weights? balanced and end loaded?

Thrump Stote 44/375. Bat comes balanced and end loaded. This was a 27oz balance, it felt balanced but did not feel light if I am making myself clear. To give you an example, IMO a 27oz Ambush swings light this bat felt like a true 27oz.

I can only give you my impression, I do not know the specifics on the bat per se. You should send an email to Kellysultimatesports for more information. I do not sell bats, I only swing em.

Lou50, I would call Kellysultimatesports and ask them when you could expect the bat. It is my understanding they go into production on Wed, but I am not in the loop. All I know is that Mike would not have let me post on the board if it was not ready to go.

I also got to swing this bat-nice feel, but a bit light for me, as I am comfortable with a 29 or 30. The pop was very good on it and it swung more like an Ultra 2 to me.I can't wait to get a 30 and really break it in and see what it will do. From what I saw and felt, it will be a great bat.
