    Just out of curiosity, how does this bat compare to the ASA Ghost?

    This bat def isn't end heavy like a Xeno...but its more end heavy than the Carbon2. It is slightly endloaded comparatively. The Xenos are heavy and the Ghosts are a little overweight.

    To be honest, most top line bats will beat these bats ...until you get 5000 swings on them

    Ok, I got this from the next guy that had them as he isn't on this board...

    Mizuno titanium - this bat reminds me of the old rocket tech but the sound was a lot different. Bat had a vibration when not hit solid ( very small sweet spot ). Bat was hot when you got a good centered up hit. This bat produced for most kids -2 to -8 mph compared to their game bats ( asa ghost, lxt,xeno, and demarins) but did put up higher exits when centered up. guess that's the key to this one.

    Mizuno power carbon - in one word the describe this bat WOW. Bat had a great feel very well balanced and exit speed was awesome. Every kid seen the same to +5 mph over there game bats. Did have 2 girls that seen +10 mph over there game bats which were a 2018 lxt and the other a Demarini cfx. This is no doubt a game ready bat out of the wrapper.

    Mizuni carbon 2 - this bat surprised me after some of the other reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. At 1st it took most of the kids a little to get a feel for it. After about 20 to 30 swings they really started coming around and bat was starting to get some good results. Over all the exit speeds were lower but I believe after a few bp rounds this bat will open on up.

    Over all review
    I had over 75 kids that came out to test these bats and only 5 of them where not impressed. They never really gave me a reason beside we don't like the colors. Performance wise mizuno is there with all the other company's with this line up. I had a age group from 12u to 18u and a few college girls. Main question I keep getting ask was if these where going to get banned because of how hot and why this bat was legal in all fields of play and the ghost wasn't.
    My daughter was the 1st kid to hit these bats and also the last. She is 14 maybe 5'3 and 110 lbs soaking wet. The last day we hit her exit speeds where 5 to 7 over her asa ghost and she hit 4 homeruns on a 200' field out of 25 pitch's. She looked at me said I got to have one.

    I want to thank Todd and core softball sales for the demos and letting these girls get a chance to swing some great bats.
    Mizuno keep up the good work and expecting to see many more great bats from you guys.

    Thanks again

    Had to comment on this....Core directed me several years ago to the Easton Mako for my twins based on the amount of ball they were playing year. We still have the original -11 and -10, still use the -10 for BP a lot (especially in the colder months) and even used it in a couple games this past fall. Built like tanks (Core's word) they've outlasted several other bats including a CF8 (and probably also it's warranty replacement the CFX) and a Ghost. Hot? Nope but built to take a beating and last? Yep
    Thanks Todd!!

    Edited to add: We'd love to demo a PC out here in the Rockies!!

    34 inch drop 10 would be great if you have one

    Good Morning,

    Are you still sending these out to Demo? I have a team of 13 12U girl's that would love to try them. We have a couple that are in the market right now. Including me. Also, we work out at a facility where a high school team practices (HS head coach runs the place) they also do hitting lessons out of there. Most of my girl's swing 31s or 32s. mix of drop 11 and drop 10. we have a couple that can swing the 33. I am sure most of the high school girl's swing 33 or 34. What sizes would you be able to send me?

    Thank you
