We'd recommend the 2016 Mizuno Nighthawk to hitters who prefer two-piece bats yet need or want a lighter swing. Also, those who need or want a bat that still feels stiff but doesn't come with the associated hand sting are looking at the right bat in the 2016 Mizuno Nighthawk.
The 2016 Mizuno Nighthawk might have become a one-hit-wonder had any player actually wondered about it. This was a weird aberration on the Mizuno front with a one year release of the bat and then a transition into the Carbon and Hot Metal series of bats. It was too easily confused with the Nighthawk in their fastpitch line and few ever gave it a chance. In the end, the bat is perfectly reasonable and, you can be sure, you'll never find anyone else with this bat.
