The XP80 is dead, long live the VelocityXL.

Found this

 

I thought they were reducing the physical size of bats.

I messaged the owner of the bat, who also owns a XP80. He says the XL 1500 toe is thicker that the XP 80 1500 he owns. Outside of this he says it is the same shape.

I think the edges are slightly smaller overall and that wood is now in the toe. That said if you own a XP80 I would not trade up to this. 

As already stated the shape may change and is not due for official release until July.

It's a bargain to be honest, looks Aussie made.

Out of curiosity how can you tell it's Aus made?

I don't suppose that automatically means Stuart Kranzbuhler made?

looks like the A is stamped in rather than a sticker, they will have an aussie made sticker on top of handle as well. No not necessarily made by Stu.
