Why It Exists
The first factory produced cheater bat available to the public. Claims to have BPF of 1.5. The funny thing is that it has purposely misleading stickers that say "BFP 1.2" and "American Softball Association" rather than "BPF 1.2" and "Armature Softball Association".
What People Say
Tiny sweetspot and suspect durability, but if you catch the sweetspot few bats hit the ball further.
My Impressions
The bat has its advantages. If you have no problem finding the sweetspot on most bats and have no moral issues with using a cheater bat, this might be one to check out. Especially if you play in low compression leagues. Just don't dare to bring it out on a chilly night.

Why it exists
It was the first composite inner core, aluminum exterior wall bat on the market. Also designed as a cheater bat with BPF 1.2 markings, but no ASA approval.
What people say
A lot of people really love these. A lot of people are unhappy with the bat's lack of a warranty.
My impressions
It's a factory produced cheater bat for what it's worth. It's right up there with the best aluminum and many of the composite bats of the world. Too bad it's durability is severely lacking. I had two with inner cores rattling inside the bat.
