Discussion: Comparison

Read more different topics here. When bats break, people don't like it. It's evident on many posts. I've seen plenty of incidents of disappointed players not getting their money's worth and it's not right. Can't ignore it when it happens. Making excuses and proclaiming it's the nature of the beast doesn't cut it either. Players deserve to be treated better when a high price product fails in a short period of time.

mad dog....if you think I'm the only one complaining about a bat you aren't paying attention. I also know for a fact the end cap has been infamous for separating on Combat bats for many players I know, and it has been mentioned on these boards. I originally brought up this issue with Combat to inform other players, the same way others bring up their issues. Apparently you get defensive about it.

Don22 does NOT have a Combat bat going strong after 3 years. Where did you get that from HJ?? You are also misspeaking when you say "most do not agree" with me and my issues with Combat. I was very nice to both Combat and Anaconda and got nothing but shot down and the runaround. My expectation of Combat replacing or refunding me for the defective bat was fair and reasonable and many believe I am correct. Unfortunately, Combat has us all by the short ones and also has our money, but won't get any more of mine.

My recent Combat was not durable at all and Combat corporate folks don't care if it breaks. They just want you to buy another one. Very disappointed in Combat.

I will "boycott" Combat. Don't need anyone's permission to do so. Not only was the bat itself and not getting my money's worth the issue, but when folks in corporate can't even have the motivation to respond then it goes deeper than the product itself.

The website says all bats Combat manufactures have a 1 year warranty.. It's there, we can all read it. I'm not a sucker because I won't have this happen to me twice by Combat. I had one bat. I haven't won the lottery.

The Combat Mike Macenko bat is manufactured by Combat. Combat says, clearly, that it has a 1-yr warranty on all bats it manufactures. It's on the first page of it's website. I don't want excuses or deceptive contradictions. That's cursory enough for me. Back up the claim or don't make the claim.

Not even CLOSE to 400 swings. Bottom line.....Combat says they have a warranty on every bat they manufacture. It's clearly stated on the website. I bought one of their bats, it broke, they won't back the claim. Totally unfair and they clearly don't care about the customer satisfaction. It comes down to integrity. If a company has it, it shows.

I realize there are guys who can drop $200-300 on a bat and not blink. I am not one of those guys. If I buy a golf club, a toaster or bat for a good chunk of change, I would hope if that product fails the company would have the integrity to replace the product and keep the customer satisfied. If Combat would have done that for me I would have spread the word of the good customer service the same way I am posting my present dissatisfaction. If they were to call me today and tell me they will replace the bat, I would come on this post and recant everything and sing praises to Combat. I called Anaconda, who told me to call Combat who, in turn, told me to call Anaconda etc, etc....nonsense. They got their money and they are happy.

In response to a few posts above....
I know the Macenko bat is not sold by Combat, but it is manufactured by Combat and their wedsite says they have a warranty on every bat they manufacture.
There are some bats that come with a warranty. I've seen the ads and I realize the cost goes up a bit with a warranty.
I'm not being remotely unfair to Combat. For them, or anyone else, to charge $200 or more for a product and then not back that product is poor business. Yes, there ARE options out there and from now on one of my options won't be Combat. The fact that bats break after 10-50 swings is not a viable reason nor acceptable for a bat company to blow off a customer who just spent a ton of money and got nothing in return.

The website says they have a one year warranty on ALL bats they manufacture. This bat I have was manufactured by Combat. Thus, logic says Combat should cover their products. This bat is not a Centenarian so it is irrelevant. They aren't backing their claim on all bats they manufacture. Very disappointed in Combat.

If you look at the Combat website, it clearly states they have a one year warranty on all bats they manufacture. I used a new, blue Combat Mike Macenko bat for just about 3 months and it cracked. I called Combat and they said they don't offer a warranty on that bat. Apparently whay they advertise and what they really follow through with are two completely different things. Very disappointed in the customer service by Combat. I wrote to 4 people at the corporate headquarters and only heard back from one. I will never buy another bat from Combat. I used the yellow version for almost 2 years and liked it,except for the end cap issues. I am hoping I can find a bat that has endurance to last a while and is manufactured by a company that backs it's products.
