Discussion: Which bat to buy follow -up..

Follow up on the Dudley Bobby NiFong, it took over 450 hits to break in, now it is hot, very impressed. Also, just bought a new 2021 Worth Mach 1 XXL 26oz. David V. has it ranked #1 on his top 10 list. I need warmer weather to start hitting it.

I got a 25.5 oz Dudley Bobby Nifong last week, got about 80 swings on it now. The 25.5 oz feels like other 26.5 oz bats. So far, I am impressed. Read where that hard shell barrel bats like the Bobby Nifong works best for fast bat speed. Also, been told it can take up to 400 swings before the Bobby Nifong is broke in and hot. So going to be patient.

Well, dang it, the 2021 Denny Crine Demarini cracked after about 125 swings. No doubt, that bat got hot before it cracked. Now, have to figure what to do, may go with red Suncoast Melee. Also, thinking about the blue Dudley Bobby Nifong, I know it takes a while to break in, but a sweet bat after break-in. Decisions, Decisions :-)

So I have had more practices now and able to put more swings on the 2021 Denny Crine, 2020 Red Suncoast Melee and my old 2019 Red Adidas Melee. The 2021 Denny Crine is breaking in and definitely has some pop, dang close to the melee's.

Some of my team had practice yesterday in 87 deg NC weather, not much wind. We put about 100 swings on the 2021 Denny Crine Demarini 27oz. Consensus, in our opinion...it is a very good bat, plenty went out over the 300ft fence, but feel like the 2020 red Suncoast Melee and 2019 red Adidas Melee may have a slight edge over it.

David V. posted his review of the 2021 Demarini Denny Crine this morning. His opinion only... he ranked it behind the 2020 Suncoast 12" Melee and 2019 12" 2-piece Adidas Melee. It's like the 2021 Larry Carter, great distance, but they cracked a few of them. So if you got bat speed, they will not last long.

David V. just put his review out on the 2021 Demarini Larry Carter. In his opinion only, he ranked it pretty high in his list. Great distance, but durability is questionable, may not last long for guys with alot of bat speed.

Finally pulled the trigger, was surfing on Amazon, got luck and they had the 2021 Denny Crine endload 27oz for $184 incl shipping. Great Price! Can't wait till next batting practice to see how well it does. I am sure there will be a break in period. Our team supposed to play in the Great Smoky Mountain Senior Classic in Knoxville June 5th, still unknown if that tournament is canceled.

Update....David Velasquez posted his review on the Easton Empire today, he did not care for it, he put it at the bottom of his list. But like he states, just his opinion.

I got a chance to hit a 26oz green suncoast melee and 27.5oz red coast melee yesterday in 84 degree NC weather.
I like the 27.5 oz red suncoast melee, the balls were clearing the 300ft fence easy. I could not get close to the fence with the 26oz green suncoast melee, just seemed like it did not have enough kick, maybe because it is lighter. So the red suncoast melee is in the lead for my next purchase.

Still thinking about the 2021 Denny Crine and Larry Carter Demarinis, and the 2020 Miken Johnny Bailey.

I currently have 2019 Red Adidas 12" Melee. No complaints.

Looking to purchase a new bat. Thinking about following....
2021 Denny Crine Demarini end-load
2021 Larry Carter Demarini mid-load
2020 Johnny Bailey Ultra Fusion
2020 Easton Empire
2020 Suncoast Red Melee 12"
2020 Suncoast Green Melee 13"

I follow David Velasquez reviews, still waiting on his 2021 Demarini reviews, and he just started the Easton Empire.

Looking for any input or advice, Thanks!
