The HOLY GRAIL of softball bats. Universally acknowledged as the hottest metal alloy bat ever made, this is the bat that Ray DeMarini and Mike Eggiman (MDE) held up as the best of the best, that they could produce.It is discussed in forums that there may only be 3-4 NIW'97 Ultimate Distances left in the world. Guys, this is the ultimate collector's bat for our sport. It is in pristine condition, with the slightest of cello tearing.
You will want to mount this on your wall, to the envy of all in the softball world. The 1997 DeMarini Ultimate Distance was used by the legends of our game.
While the UD was produced for multiple years, the'97 provided a power that was never reproduced. Production bats and in 1997 this is what everyone wanted to swing.
The double wall, C405 alloy metal, creates a massive trampoline affect. The'97 outer wall was softer than any UD produced before or after, and this did create a durability issue with the rocks that were used in this era.With the new LC balls used today, I use my'97 UD in my metal bat league and it preforms very much like the best of the composite bats.
