The first thing I thought when I first swung this was "Omg this is going to get banned." The speed the ball comes off this bat is far and away faster than the competition. This thing produces super sonic lasers! The pop is the best on the market and the distance is too. Feels amazing and nice end load sweetspot. This and the balanced version are easily the best bats on the market right now. The Z-models are so good wow. Pitchers and infielders beware for your own saftey when someone brings this to the plate. This bat is getting hotter and opening up nicely. Durability only knock on it, scratches easily.
