Agree on pick up mind..

Seems counter intuitive when he says "Designed to have all the weight down the bottom of the bat" but then "It's so light, it's 2lb10 but pickw up 2lb7 or 2lb8" haha.

ive used a nemesis since they first came out and absolutely love it.

i also agree about the pick up. ive never thought it was bottom which you might expect from the shape

It has a deceptively large amount of meat towards the splice and @edge 's Nemesis certainly picked up very light...

I would completely agree the splice of tthege bat is an optical illusion

Looks like half a Warner bat (bottom half v top).

Be interesting to see how mis-hits further up the bat would go with all that 'missing' wood.
