2021 Demarini senior bats


Hi Folks:

I have decided to buy one of the new Demarini bats but cant decide on the balanced or mid load. I watched Dave V's review of the balanced and he gave it very high marks. Have any of you hit the mid load and if so what do you think of it?

Also are any of you on this board Demarini reps who I could purchase one from?

Thanks:

BOUGHT THE 2021 BALANCED BASED ON DAVES REVIEW. CKED WITH DAVE NOTTH WOODLAWN NITTING CLUB FL. A LOT OF GUYS THERE SPEAK HIGHLY OF THE DEMARINI.

WILL HIT IT AS SOON AS THE LAST ICE STORM UP HERE IN ILLINOIS DECIDES TO MELT AND WE GET SOME FAVORABLE TEMPS.

Thanks for the input. I have been swinging an EL for the last 6-8 years but have been thinking about going back to a balanced. I may wait until more reviews are out on the EL bats before I order. It does sound like these bats have large sweet spots.

JamesLG,
I swing primarily a 27oz Larry Carter(mid load). Although I have swung the 26oz Denny Crine (end load) later in tournaments because of fatigue and don't miss a beet. I have also won a HR derby (Smokey Mountain 60's) with the Paul Stanley/Paul Sadler 28oz balanced. Bottom line is you can't go wrong with any of Demarini's for performance and durability. Right out of the wrapper. You won't be disappointed.

I have all three, the balanced, midload and endload and just prefer heavier on the balanced 28, and 27 on the Denny Crine. No better premium performance bat on the market for sure! Hard to beat an Advisory Staff with Seniors Doug, Sadler, Stanley and Crine & Carter among others.

i have the Denny Crine....it has great performance HOWEVER, it has a crack in it with a little over 100 swings....that is the word on the streets about Demarini bats in general, great performance but don't use them for BP or only about 25 swings, then bag it until games.....takes the fun out of hitting it but that's the way they are made

I just placed the order and look forward to hitting this new bat. Will get at least one backup if it works out as planned.

Thanks for the help.
