Havn't seen that bat in particular. A few years ago I bought a paint blem bat (easton synergy) from the same company and it still rocks!

Superduty - My 05 Demarini F-2 I bought from these guys 2 years ago and I couldn't even see the blem in the paint and it's still got good pop.

I always wanted to try an Easton besides I wasn't gonna shell out for a new 08 Extended there crap from what I have read.

Guys using Extended's as team bats are starting to see the wear and tear on these bats especially when they use it as a team bat. My buddy had a new one last season and he plays three days a week plus tournies 6 a year and one of the league teams they used his bat 80% of the time. Well it's tailing down to the end of season 2 with that bat and she's dying a slow death.

I'd have to say that any non single wall bat or composite is a cheater bat. But that's just me.

Had a rec league game tonight at 5 p.m. and had to jet to our Floyd League after for a 6:15 p.m. start. The stealth was everything as advertized smoked two line drive base hits with it in a 4 for 4 game against the opposers that was an 8-4 win against and undefeated team in the early game.

Rolled to our 6:15 game in our competitive league and brought the F-2 out and went for 4-6 with 3 bi's en route to a 25-15 win. The stealh will be my base hit bat when the outfield is lacking speed and the F-2 I'll use against the rest. A couple of guys used my Stealth tonight and gapped a couple of hits. My F-2 has more pop but when there playing you back you can drop those 375 .44 comp right over the infielders head with Stealth. That ting sound is pretty sweet when you connect miss that sound from years gone by. Call me old school but at 43 playing with a bunch of 20 year olds it's nice that the old man can still hang...

Wrapped up the regular season title tonight with an 8-2 record and have the number 1 seed for the post season. Been with this team for 5 years and never won the regular season outright so it's pretty cool. Well we have a couple of position rounds and the we start the playoffs. In the second game we sent 11 guys to the plate in the 3rd before we made our first out, that was awesome..

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.
