I’ve seen this as well. I bought into the whole ‘hot out of the wrapper’ hype and DD started using it right away. For a couple of weekends, solid hits were just clearing the infield. She’s still not hitting to the fence like her broken Ghost, but it seems like it’s stretching out every week. Two sac flies on Sunday .
Tested with 3 girls and they averaged 4 mph above the next highest bat (2019 lxt ). They all said it swings super light (weight was 23.8 oz) and liked the feel of the bat. From my perspective, there was a noticeable difference in squarely hit balls.
Test: Right out of the box (34/24), hit off a tee to get the feel and then right to the field for front toss. Averaged 10 swings with each bat (RT-carbon, lxt -9, GA* & PC). The girls that tested the RT carbon were 17 - 20 yrs old. Used Jugs radar gun for exit velocities.
*The GA was discovered to be broken after the test.
Our 17 Yr old averaged 4.0 mph higher, 19 yr old power hitter averaged 5.1 mph higher & our 20 yr old line drive hitter averaged 3.4 mph higher.
17 yr old will be using in a tournament this weekend…we will see if it holds up.
