Reebok Barrage vs Worth Legit
For those of you that have hit both, which has the better pop? What are the other differences between the two,(balance points, sweet spot etc.)

The Reebok has a bit more pop but not by much. The Worth bat is a pure balanced bat while the Barrage has some "hybrid" properties in certain weights.
The 26 swings like a cross between the end load and balanced MeLee
The 27 swings like a MeLee 27 end load
The 28 is like the 26... A hybrid of EL and BALANCED
The 29 swings like an end load.
All in all the Barrage is very easy to adapt to whether you like and end load or balanced bat. Reebok did a nice job on it and that's why I only have a few left! The sweet spots are similar although the Worth bat hits slightly better down on the barrel while the Reebok extends it's hot spot in the other direction...

As you guys know, I have been driving across country to visit family in North Florida for Thanksgiving. I am currently in Ocala until next Tuesday, then back to Colorado.

If your favorite bt supplier is out of inventory, I have Melee's and Brrage's with me and can ship from the road via UPS. This response is not designed to circumvent anyone else.

I picked a 30oz Worth Legit and got to hit with it this past weekend. The bat's performance is right up there with any of the other Sr bats. It opens up (at) about 125-150? (depending on the hitter). Yesterday, my 30oz really open up after the 2nd rd of BP, I normally hit about 40-50 per rd. We used Sr. balls like the Stotes, X-Rocks and the Utrip Hot Dots(BTW, this ball flying really well off the Legit.) This bat's distance and pop (IMHO) was better along with the speed of the ball coming off this bat, than most of the Sr. bats I have swung so far this year. I have not swung the new Reebok. But for me, right now I'm sold on the Worth Legit. Hopefully, I get to hit again next weekend barring no rain? :) and see how this bat's durability holds up..?
