Discussion: Mike Macenko's Ultra 2's.......

Mike,
Thanks for talking with me on the phone a few months back. I hope your hip rehab is progressing nicely.

I really like your signature bat-the feel & game performance are top notch. I actually put down my red maxload and made the Big Cat my gamer, but I have had nothing but bad luck with this stick.

As you know, I purchased this bat in April and it lasted me somewhere between 35-40 swings. First hit out of the wrapper went 400+ and I am not a big distance guy. I sent it back to Miken and they promptly replaced it. I received my 2nd bat about 2-3 weeks ago and took it out for bp on an 80 degree day hitting 52/300 & 44/375 balls. After 5 swings, the outside part of the end cap basically started flying off until only the center of the endcap was left. Performance was consistent with the first bat in distance and pop. I can only assume that someone slammed the end cap on concrete "by accident" for this to happen. Weird. The bat has held up for 30 more swings without any other sign of end cap malfunction.

Not sure what to do at this point, but I plan to swing it until it breaks. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Regards,
Sean Morgan

Discussion: Ball For Break-in

I've been swinging the red Maxload almost exclusively for 5 years and would not suggest using anything more than 44/375 balls for break in. The OG models took about 15-20 hits to break in. The newer models of the last couple years take about 75 hits. The bat is generally not a very durable model, so be wary of this. My OG 28 ounce lasted 300+ swings but I've been told this is a complete freak of luck. Since it broke about 2 years ago, I've gone through 4 other maxloads that lasted between 75-150 game/bp swings. My favorite senior stick of all time. Enjoy, sir!
