Addias 2020 VS 2021 Suncoast Bats.
Can anyone provide an honest opinion on the Suncoast Balanced bat between the black & white balance(2020) vs the black & blue balanced(2021) models. I have an opportunity to purchase either and was hoping to make an informed decision with the public's feed back, thank you.

Bronx,

Here’s a couple videos that might help answer your question:

I am swinging the '21 Balanced model now as well as the '19 balanced. The new Diamond is a tad hotter right from the get go. I never had the chance to swing the '20 model but have talked to people who have had then break relatively quickly. I believe that because I broke the red '19 2 pc in under 150 swings. The new Diamond feels great right out of the wrapper, won't need to break it in IMO, but well less than 50 bp swings if you feel you have to. I would go with the Diamond.

I have both, and I am now selling all my 2020 Melees. The 2021 just feel better in my hands and when the ball is coming off of them, and as an added bonus they are much more durable.

I don't have the balanced but I do have both in the end load version. I'd say they are very similar and feel alike. The 21 needed no break in and was hot right away. The 21 seems to feel a little stiffer in the barrel and maybe doesn't flex quite as much, which I like.
Both are good but I prefer the 21 so far.

Ihave the 2020 white balanced 26oz. I am 80 years old and weigh in at 160 lbs. I thought it was a great bat until I got between 300 and 400 rips. It's busted and I won't buy another.
