depends on the bat,

I have two stickerless and two stickered

the stickerless are a SS master 100 and newbery krakatoa and i love how they look

the stickered are H4L devil (with NV stickers) and gm noir and i dont think they would look right without stickers on

Really disliked naked bats till I sent one of mine in for a refurb and was returned without stickers.   Now I really like them!! I do enjoy looking out for unusual brands the oppo are using though.

Naked.

You can have more weight in willow (albeit less than ounce) than sticker weight.

I recently had a bat made by my favorite bat maker and I asked him to make one without stickers. It is a 2-10.9 beauty with single grip, no stickers, and no face sheet. Shoulders are a dead give away though. :)
