DD was getting a few exit velos of 60-61 mph off tee. Usually her previous max w lxt and marucci connect were 57 maybe a 58. I think the bat is still getting there but so far I think there’s lots of promise. Even her 54-56 mph hits seemed to fly off barrel effortlessly.

Ok I don’t have time to read through 200 comments. 5’8” power hitter heading to college. Am I buying a Meta or a Mantra?

The obvious answer is both.
Or the more obvious answer is neither?

There are so many factors that go into what bat is right for you and I suggest you actually try out both bats to see if either is right for you.

I know the mantra has not done well in the masses and the bat really seems to have a limited crowd that like it and use it as their game bat.

The Meta is too new to get much feedback that is why I suggest you try it out to form your own opinion. I know 2 that got it a couple weeks ago and one already says the connection piece has separated from the bat but not hearing any breakage, which seems to be the only reason people are seeking an alternative to the ghost or ghost advanced.

I don’t mean to be rude but that’s an incredibly lazy statement. There is no right or wrong answer as every player has different preferences. This thread was inform others on actual findings and data collected so far. I’ve tested numerous bats with my daughter. Bats that others say are the best. She doesn’t like the way they feel though.
you need to do your homework and find the one she likes best. Hope that helps.

If she likes end loaded go with Mantra.

They say it is balanced but it isnt. It is a hot bat though but takes a bit to get that way. Only had experience with the Meta for a few days but it is more balanced.

I was kinda half kidding. Just to see what kind of feedback I got. We don’t really have anywhere to test drive bats, that’s partly why I asked. I asked her to think about all the bats she’s ever swung and what she liked best. Over the years she has had LS, Dimarini and Easton. She said the 2018 Ghost and the Xeno. I think we are purchasing the Meta. She has a PC and a GA right now.

I panic-ordered a Meta two days ago since the size my daughter needs is rapidly selling out and on backorder everywhere. We're already waiting for a warranty replacement on her 2020 ghost and since that could take several weeks she needed something in hand now.

She demoed the Meta, Mantra, CF, and Prism +. Hated the CF, but liked the other three. Ultimately, she decided on the Meta because she didn't like the sound of the Prism and the Mantra felt a little too end loaded for her preference. She's on the smaller side for a 14.5 year old at 5'1" 115lbs. Allegedly it will be here tomorrow, but I haven't seen an email from LS stating it's been shipped yet.

Good luck. Shouldn't be long on the Ghost replacement, I have had 5 on my teams this summer and all had new bats within 10 days of shipping out the broken one. Now if it is a 34 then that is for some reason taking months but given the age and size she should not be anywhere near a 34.

certain weights arent produced as much as others or produced as often...which leads to backorders.

Also because most bats arent made here...so you have to add that into the equation.
