We have 33/23 and 32/22 Mizuno Demos that I would be willing to send out to good members/customers
of this board. The 33/23s are spoken for, for a few weeks. They are out now and 2 people are in line for them
next.
The 32/22 lineup is open to demo. (Titanium, Power Carbon, Carbon2)

Couple rules...

1) Need to be able to get many kids to hit them...cant send bats out for just one daughter. Trying to
get the word out and need multiple kids trying them. And have to be able to organize your kids and
use asap.

2) Need to be a good member on this board and ALSO a customer of mine. No interest in giving demos
to somebody who buys elsewhere. Contact your store to give you bats to take home and hit and demo.

3) Must send bats back Priority USPS and within a few days. Cant have a whole line of bats out for weeks to one
person.

4) No dimple ball hitting nor Stadium balls (evil "this sucker flies ball" or the Launch 650 Worth ball...etc...)

Text me if any interest...610-417-0448

Demo bats arrived yesterday.
Verdict on the first day (realizing that they're brand new and will require a break in period)
Results right out of the wrapper by 5 players and me...
#1 Power Carbon. It was approx 3 mph faster exit speeds than the other 2.
#2 Carbon2. It feels like a CF9 and performs well, but nothing "amazing" just yet (again, still not broken in)
#3 Titanium. Feels stiff and very different than what we've gotten accustomed to. Had the lowest average exits by about 4 mph, however most of us had 1 or 2 hits with it that were "holy crap" hits. My dd was averaging 63 mph (upper 50's on the low end and 69 as a max) I believe her TI max was 67. (69 came off the PC) (her previous high was 67 with her Xeno)
We were all hitting .47/375 balls off a tee, with the Blast vision app and a pocket radar.

PC is a beast...that has been a fav by many so far and has proved itself...even brand new.

The Carbon2 will def need swings...that bat doesn't have the inner tech so its gonna require a little time like the CF's. Wish I had time to get a couple hundred hits
on it before I sent out these bats...haha.

So far you have had same results with the Ti...a ball will come off like a rocket, then some are less that ideal. I def think it needs swings as well...it is a weave with Ti
in it, so def may need to get beat up.

My problem so far with the Ti, after one hit, a girl usually decides she does or doesn't like, and then the effort matches that.

I guess being brand new, nobody can say I did anything to the bats :)

And THANK YOU James for taking the first test ride. Unfortunately, usps right now can be delayed and took a day or two longer to get there

Core from your description, Ti is not exactly an alloy right? Any thoughts, predictions or guesses as to durability?

Reason I ask is my area is big on pitching machines and was an Anderson stronghold. Can’t help wonder if this bat would be a particularly good fit for machine ball hitters.

Titanium by definition is its own metal. Its added to steel or alloys as a strengthening agent.
With this in mind, I think it'll be very durable.
The TI is the same bat as the PC... Both are 3 pc composites. The only difference is the outer shell of them.
The TI will require a lenghty break in period as you'er breaking down the fibers of the inner barrel through the outer titanium shell.
I'm going to continue to report results as more kids try these out this week.

Ti is a titanium and carbon weave...think its like 60/40...durability is not an issue. Because of the type of weave...I am guessing this will take quite a few hits to get going.
I have a feeling this is gonna be one of those bats that gets hit and hit and hit....then finally starts impressing people once everybody has given up on it...haha.
Maybe one day when these bats are done going around I will take one of the Ti's into a cage and see if cage balls destroy it

Power Carbon has NO titanium (all comp)...I relate this as their flagship bat. Has the inner tech/discs.

Well, after about 18 kids hitting with these bats so far the general results are changing...
The PC is still the favorite, but the TI is heating up... the numbers are shifting towards it now.
#1 PC
#2 TI
#3 C2

The TI had been about 4mph lower exits, now its about even with the PC
On Mon my exits were about 86mph with the PC. However last night I got 90 a few times with the PC, while my exits with the TI never exceeded 87 (again, I'm using 375 comp balls. I think I could get 100 with some Evil brand 600 comp balls)
I believe the break in period is starting to taking hold with the TI.

I might as well order one now. I won’t be able to sleep until I do.
