Many years ago I had developed my own custom bat with an offset magnesium handle. 25 years later, I re-enter the sport and lo and behold, I come across the Tenaly bats with OFFSET HANDLES! So I guess I was ahead of my time. Thing is... I use mine BACKWARDS from its design intent.
That being said, the new bat was surfaced with Yasaka V-stage 2.0mm and off I went. I love this thing. It has a "feel" for the ball that is downright uncanny. Add to that a very satisfying "POP" when you hit the ball. It is very comfortable in the hand as well with the exception that the handle could be a bit longer. Had it been, I would have rated it at 5 stars.
