Dont go with the strobe or torque. I had a torque for about a month or so, and have hit with the strobe and didnt like them that much. Originally, the torque had tons of pop, but towards the end of the month i had it for it had already started to die. The strobe I tried never seemed to have much pop in it. If you are a stiff bat fan, I would stick with the TPX line and try to stay away from the nike bats. While nike may have something good started, their bats arent good enough yet. A graduated senior in my program's father is a nike rep and he is decked out in nike gear except for his bat which is easton. That tells you something.
