    I would say LS C243....and I believe its a model Louisville makes for the public. These other guys on here know a lot more than I do. Or M356.

    "Right now, Hanley Rameriz sent in a Old Hickory LW1. It's similar to a R161 barrel with a M110S handle."

    BMH, Do you recall what you turning model that was made into?

    heaps of choices bro. C243/ Raw 456/ Sam AS12/ even T141 / and F123 ....
    I love the Raw M491's and old hickory and max and ny stix make there versions which are pretty similar but not quite exact in the handles. still good bats. go bucs!

    thank you very much. Very helpful. Trying to help son make the transition to BBCOR. He has always used end loaded bats without an issue so a balanced BBCO isnt going to be a good fit for him as we've already tried and its not comfortable so we found a deal on a 2012 Easton XL3 and you can really feel the end load. He's always used wood in the cage but never really focused on balanced or end loaded but I think we need to use something equiv. in feel to what his game bat will be.

    Anyone know of a good resource to find which turns are balanced and which are end loaded? I'm at opposite end of spectrum, looking for a 32" balanced for my son.

    Thanks man. It looks like the 110s are balanced, especially if I can find a model with a cupped end?

    It is a balanced model, albeit one with a long barrel (early transition to barrel from handle) and a relatively thick handle by modern standards.
    T141 is broadly similar, but with a longer transition and a bit thinner handle. R161 is sort of like a scaled up M110.

    The R161 has a much different transition over the M110. I'd argue that the M110 is a beefed up M159, but the M110 came first. I guess that makes the M159 a slimmed down M110

    Thanks fellas. Last weekend I picked up a couple 110s at closeout from a Sports Authority which was shutting down for $10 each, score! In the same rack they had a new in the wrapper 2014 Voodoo BBCOR for $70, score!

    I'll have to defer to you on the R161, used to see them in stores all the time but it was way too much bat for me. My memory was that it had a fairly long, straight barrel like the M110, but much thicker. Thought the handle on the R161 was a tad thicker than the M110, but similar in style.
    I'm not seeing the parallels for the M110 and M159, and I do have some of each of those. The transition from barrel to handle on the M110 is relatively abrupt and the barrel itself is pretty straight...the M159 has a barrel profile kinda sorta like the C271. Guess it could depend upon the age of the bat, I know that an M159 I bought in high school looked to have a somewhat different profile than one I bought in college.

    The R161 has a very thick handle and a distinct transition from handle to barrel.
