The bat felt good this season and has a lot of pop. Nothing compared to last years model. Last year model is just hot stupid hot. This bat is hot out the wrapper and pretty much stays the same. The white one was hot out the wrapper and would get hotter and hotter after time. I like flat black on this bat and the small knob of this year model. It has more endload to it. Durability is there playing league and tournament. The bat been thru hell and back. Only the lettering has faded some and a few scratches. No cracks, chipping, or webbing. Good bat.
