DD started swinging her new PowerCarbon (32/21) this weekend. (Thank you Core!!!!)
Bottom line = WOW!
I wish I had the equipment (and time) for measuring exit velocities, but this is a low-tech review.
DD was using a 31/20 Easton FS1 CXN Zero last year, and outgrew it (probably a while ago, but she was comfortable with it so I did not push). Then we borrowed a Demarini CFS (32/21), and DD was happy feeling the pop of a higher end bat.
Enter in the new F19 PC, and she seems to be crushing it. I even took out the adrenaline factor of a new bat and the first few swings by waiting until the second bucket of the second day to judge the results, which seem to confirm that this bat has what it takes to compete against all of the other top brands. (posted a video in the hitting technical forum).
We'll see how it goes for distance when we get out to an open field, but tee work looks great. Evals this weekend, so hope to get out and see some live hits. And hoping it lasts as long as the FS1 did!
I guess the other bottom line, the one that I actually care about, is that there were extensive smiles after each hit, and this after having to nudge her into continuing to play this year.
Soooooo worth the money already!
Thank you, again, Core. And also Coach James for posting the exit vel data at the beginning of this thread!! That really grabbed my attention on these bats, helped sell it for me as an engineer.
Now, if I could just get her to break in her new glove...
