    Coach James, what was your dd swinging before?

    Reference the Ti vs PC, can you comment on forgiveness on mishits? Back in the dark ages, some would say the Anderson metals had the best sweet spot of any bat but the hitter had to put the pitch directly on the sweet spot.... I don’t know why I am so determined to compare metal to metal, that probably isn’t fair.

    Thank you for collecting and reporting all this info. Sounds like this added a great option for a lot of players.

    DD's current bat was a 2018 Xeno 33/23
    The TI feels similar to an old Rocketech...only a couple oz. lighter. Not forgiving at all. Small sweet spot, but holy crap, when you find it.
    The PC honestly reminds me of a hollowed out and corked, wooden baseball bat. Very smooth, but powerful recoil! Large sweet spot!

    Nice. I can’t deny that I think the Ti will be the hands down best weapon for some hitters. Rocketech filled a very narrow niche but this bat might just cover bigger spectrum. If you are a hitter that puts the ball precisely on the barrel and aren’t being challenged by most of the pitching you see that might be the one bat you have in your bag.

    Also glad to hear that your dd swung Xeno, that bat fit both of my kids swings until we went the Ghost route.

    Because comparing metal to composites isn't fair for metal bats

    Carbon2 doesn't have the rubber power connection but its a two piece...but color scheme, instead of purple, its a lighter blue.

    The Carbon 1 is one piece and like a mint green

    Outside of my DD being staunchly anti-purple, she's really liking the -11 Power Carbon we got from Core.

    The power carbon is the real deal...
    Its performance speaks for its self. The exit speed comparison proved that each player averaged at least 3 or 4 mph higher than with the bat she currently swings.
    So, if the math that says each mph equals 3.5' (if a launch angle is approx 20 deg) your dd will hit balls at least 15-20 more feet with the PC than if she'd swung her _____ bat.
    Not rocket science here folks! Ultimately it's the indian and not the arrow, but this is one helluva an arrow
