Ended up getting an Old Hickory MT27 in maple. Bullseye! Took my son out for some BP today with it and that was the best I have ever seen him control a wood bat. He said that was the most easiest swinging woody he has ever swung before. He said the American Batsmith MT27 felt a bit heavier and end loaded compared to the Old Hickory. So after trying trying many numerous companies and turns I think he has finally found one that works for him.

Ended up putting the Old Hickory MT27, American Batsmith MT27, and his Baum bat on a scale. The American Batsmith and his Baum both came in at -2. The Old Hickory came in at -3.2. So that does help explain why he felt quicker with the Old Hick.

After a couple of weeks of practices and a weekend tournament, my son definitely like the Tatis a whole lot more than the EB12.  He said the Tatis feels more end loaded, and he likes that better.

While researching the various Victus models, I came across this video.  They say that V243 is the most end loaded.  But the Victus description is that this is just slightly end loaded.  Anyone has experience with this turn?

My son has been loving his Tatis. He’s crushing everything low in the zone. Higher fastballs have not been barreled as consistently. He hits those well with the JC24.



On a side note, I’ve seen a ton more bats breaking this summer. Maybe the kids are just a year older and this is common. One kid on son’s team has broken 2 Maruccis and 2 Victus so far in 3 tournaments. He’s a switch hitter and they’ve all broken while hitting lefty.
