Splice is in the blade so I'd guess not. Wood looks kinda crappy too

My cor3 had the splice in a he blade. Believe you are thinking of the mmi3.
Looks good to me

Yeah, plus- why would you sticker up fake kids bats to sell for 15? Surely by the time youve sourced the wood, the grip, the stickers and such a niche brand and size, makes me wonder how much profit would actually be in it

That's a good point on the splice. The stickers are too low though so I guess it could have been restickered but it looks a little off. Bit late now though

It's a genuine bat, but Kashmir looking at the blade. No way is it a Premium.

CoR3 from 2010/11 onwards had a 'mini-splice' in the blade, to introduce more flex back into the handle.
