Bat feels really good out of the wrapper. SS is a bit small. After 100 or so cuts the SS opens up quite a bit. Very crisp liners. Distance is getting better. Probably 200 cuts now. Compression was 260 NIW. Still @ 250 after 200 cuts. I have hit a few .44-400 with it and the bat kills them. I figure after a couple hundred more swings this will be a straight 10.
