Combat Anaconda 27/28 oz EL compared to 30oz balanced one
I have a chance to purchase a like new Combat Anaconda in 30oz. weight bat. I swing an Ultra II 28oz and a Rip-it yellow Elite 28ozer. I hear this over and over to get the EL version as it will or should hit the ball further then the balanced version.
Makes sense I guess, Now the Ultra II is balanced and it hits the living crap out of the ball as everyone knows. To me the Ultra 28 feels a bit light. Soooo, is there anyone out there that has hit say a 27 or 28oz C.A. EL and also the 30 oz balanced version. If so would you please give me some feedback and thoughts from your experience with the EL's versus the balanced. It would be very appreciated. Thanks.

I use a 30oz EL Combat (gray) and like it very much, it just feels good. I never had a good feel with u2-- I bought
a 30oz (red) in Phonix, was going to hit some this weekend
but my pitching m. did not want to work so I will take it to
Ft Myers and find out if it is better than the gray

Thanks. The red one I hear is very good too. Guess the only difference is the size of the sweet spot. I really don't care much for the U2 swing, but the ball sure goes no matter what the swing is like. I am so tempted to get that balanced 30 oz. Anaconda. My friend says just buy a new 26 or 27oz model. I can get this 30oz one for $125.00 shipped, and it only has no more then 25 swings on it. The guy wants to go to a 26 oz ASA bat. Big difference there. Hope it works for you in Ft. Myers.

This reply is for WES. What are your thoughts on the red one as compared to the gray one? Are your bats balanced or end loaded? Thanks for a reply.

My mistake, I found out that all the red ones are end loaded.

My Brother ( Monta) bought the red Combat in Phoenix and we used it last night when we got back from Umpiring in Las Vegas and it was a 27 oz and I normally use a 29 oz Ultra II. All I have to say is WOW. That hit further than my Ultra by 10'. I have a Mountain in my back yard have hit probably 300 ball towards it and the 3 swing hit the furthest out of all the bats I've swung back there. Including my Freak 100, Flex & 2 Ultra Ii's. Really end loaded and with effortless swings. IHe got it from Jim Carey, who I heard just got of the hospital. Prayers go out to him & hoping a speedy recovery. Cman#3

Thanks Cman#3 Still looking for a used one. Guess I'll have to get a new one. Heard someone was selling them for $180.00 Shipped? Can't seem to find the ad on the web or who is selling them./ Think it was Kelly's
