Not to be overly critical but this looks too concaved for a 2-10 bat for my liking. Its rare to see pros use such concaved shapes usually their bats are quite full almost dome shaped. Makes me question whether it really is the exact profile and weight QDK uses. Grains look lovely though and im sure it pings like a cannon

^ I have concaved bats and have unreal ping! I wouldn't worry about it. As long as the concaving does not go below the edge level, there is no degradation of performance per James Laver.

What is the reasoning behind performance being effected as soon as the concaving sips below the edge?

They won't catch us this time! Not this time! They haven't spotted us! No, they're all snoring in their bunks! Or, you know what? They're drinking at the bar, celebrating our sinking! Not yet, my friends. Not yet!

I think when concaving dips below edge level, you are basically putting more wood at edge than between edge and middle (where it dipped below edge level), which doesn't make any sense as you either hit the ball off the middle or between edge and middle i.e. off centre. As long as concaving is above edge level, compared to convex shape with small edge (comparing at same weight/volume of wood available to work with), you are basically spreading out wood all along the way towards the edge resulting in a wider sweet spot compared to no concaving/convex back but with small edges.

From personal experience, i did find slightly concaved bats/modern bat shapes had wider middles compared to convex bats with small edges/old bat shapes. Not to mention, pickup is almost always better with concaving, maybe something to do with aerodynamics. Pickup difference can be clearly felt when trying horz bat shots.
