I haven't personally used it so I have no feedback for you. I know "Clatta" uses it and if you know him, then you know what kind of a hitter he is. The only thing I can comment on though is that I haven't seen to many guys using them at all.

My coplayer and manager uses one. he loves it. 26oz. It is strictly a game day bat according to him. Serious hitters could shorten the life with bp.

Yes al33, i know clatta and actually have played with him in a few tournaments.Im originally from virginia and everyone who ever played any serious ball there knows who clatta is.I play senior ball now and a guy on an opposing team used one of these worth bats the other night and the ball really hopped off it so i was just wondering if other people had used it with good results and if it was balanced or endloaded?

It's a Miken. It was either Miken bought Worth or the other way around. Not sure which, but the bats are made by one and the same. So my quess is they will last as long or as little in swings as the Mikens.

Our #3 hitter, Carl Underwood, uses this bat. He swings a 28.5 oz end loaded model. Its a hot bat, just for games he says.

For the record:
Miken, Worth and Rawlings are owned by Jarden Corp.
They used to be owned by K2

The bat is the XXX Toxic. I bought 2 early this year - a 28.5 and a 27.5. They have a 0.5 oz endload. I used the 28.5 in Reno and it broke in less than 50 swings. The 27.5 I am using now; it has a vertical crack but is not yet completely broken. The bats are hot and, I've learned, should only be used as "gamers". I would say they are about as durable as the Ultra II which in MHO is what they actually are with a Worth label on them.

Game only bats! And we're the one's that are suppose to set example for the younger generation? What would we say to our kids or grandchildren if they said I want you to buy this for me (200.00), but it might only last until later today or next week or next year?

I have TWO 27.5 's and both have 250 cuts on them now with NO obvious signs of fatigue. I bought a 28.5 for a tourney after I had left my equipment bag in Alabama. This bat broke in less than 45 swings !!!! Go figure !

I try to form my own opinion on durability after reading as many reviews as I can find and then trying the bats myself. Once I get an "idea" of the general durability and "break in" I always graduate my bats to the "gamer" bag after a few dozen ( Ultra2 ) or a few hundred ( Combat Centenarian ). The New Orange Worth's seemed to have a reputation of longer break in and higher durability than the previous edition and in my experience the 27.5's bore that out.....so far. It took at least 60 swings for both to get that distinctive "crack" that the Ultra's make from start to finish. The 28.5's however, seem to be quickly gaining a reputation as Extremely hot out of the wrapper ( mine was ) but no longevity. At the FHC tourney I spoke to several players about the Worth XXX after mine broke. One gentleman said that his team had used nine or ten over the previous four weeks and ALL of the 28.5's had broke before they reached 100 cuts ! In contrast the 26.5 and 27.5's had both lasted significantly longer.
