I'm getting so close to ordering one. I sold three of my old bats today to make room for one of these.

What model bat do you like, Goldy? I want to make sure when you order you get the bat that is most like the model you prefer.

Gabe,

Im really bad at interpreting bat specs. The last bat that I ordered was a max bat t14: Handle: 29/32" Dia. | Barrel: 2 13/32" | Knob: 1 27/32" | Weight: -2.

So I was thinking either the Capri or the Firenze would be good. I like a thin handle and medium to small sized barrel.

The Roma is a very good choice. I will tell you that the Venezia is "inspired" by the M110, but I find it to have a thinner handle with a small/medium barrel and profiles very close to the c271 as well. I think the Roma has a bit thicker of a barrel.

I received my 33.5" -3 Potenza about a week ago, and I am having a hard time putting it down. I've been hitting with it everyday and it keeps getting better. Hands down, the best wood bat I've ever used although my Trinity PS271 Birch is right up there with it. Great bat, with amazing pop!!! Nothing but great things to say about Mine Bats. Huge thanks to Gabby for the code, and for introducing me to this company.

I just taped up my Potenza! I am having a really hard time deciding which one I like the most, but I have to say I love the Amalfi. The Amalfi is "inspired" by the C243 - but it has a longer big barrel and thin handle. I don't like the thin handle, so I tape it up a bit and it is just the best bat I have ever felt.

Let some of my teammates try my MINE bats out, and everyone feels the difference of European Beech. I just have to let all of you guys do the talking! Thanks for ordering and enjoy your stick! I hope you got the warranty - even if you don't break it in 30 days, you will get $19 off your next bat.

Roma arrived today. I should have done a -3 drop since it's a heavy -2. It feels very solid. I really like how thin they tapered the handle on this 271 model.

32 -2. I really like the feel of it. Hopefully I will get a chance to use it in a few weeks.

I got a Roma also, and I think I like the bigger barrel bats more. The handle is my favorite of all of them, though. I'll bet you got a solid piece of wood with that size/weight! Looking forward to your reaction to it's performance.

Hey guys - I ordered the below models of Mine Bats to sell at a local MSBL Regional tournament this weekend. Should I not sell them at the tournament, I will be listing them on Ebay - UNLESS you guys are interested. MSRP price on the bats is $129, but I will sell them for $100 each. Jump on this deal as they will be cheaper than the discount I can get you with my "gabe10" coupon code.

I got the bats in today, and after inspection these are some FINE pieces of lumber.

Here are the models and crosses:

Two Venezia (M110) 33 inch, 30 ounce
Two Roma (C271) 33 inch, 30 ounce
One Amalfi (C243) 33 inch, 30 ounce
One Capri (P72) 33 inch, 30 ounce - uncupped
One Bergamo (G175/AJ25) 33 inch, 30 ounce - uncupped
One Firenze (G175/AJ25) 33.5 inch, 30.5 ounce
