I keep reading that getting a bat made in the first or what ever "batch" preforms better or worse than another batch of that same make and model.

So my question is:

The manufacture determine the number of bats in a run. It can be determined two ways by the end cap used on the bat or serial#. As years go by bat companys change graphics bat tape and endcaps. EC are mmade to close bat and assist bat performance. Company logo change in style yearly. The number will tell if its a first batch because number also tells production date. versus second or continued run. Most bats that come out in the first year may gain a rep over time as being a great bat and everyone wants one. It may be a continued run. However the previous bats could be tanks and then a 2012 model could be a fire stick. Everyone would want the 2012 demand would go up. My 2 cent is there's too much made about batches. You should find the production date. I have a 05/06 batch Grey Combat snake bat & 08 Combat MM gear, both still going strong not used for bp just games. I've had some crazy offers for them, but won't let them go. because they're very good and durable. Take the mikens ( don't swing or like them) the past few years they've been breaking left and right, but the older runs are more durable. Both hit bombs one is just more glassy. hope this helps jm2cents
