Gary,
Read the posts regarding the bat and what you read are simple facts and experiences of testing. Yours may have been one of the stiffer ones produced early on but the orders I have been getting in the last couple of months have produced very good results at all the bat weights. So to be honest as you ask....what you suggest is that we have a bunch of bats we are trying to unload? That is NOT the case and in fact it's OPPOSITE of what you claim. I have sold them out repeatedly and am having to reorder. When I came back from playing last week I had ZERO left and just got my restock yesterday.
Good luck with your 28 and the rest of the season.

Lou,
The Barrage is not overly end loaded. More like a hybrid between balance and end loaded. It's easy to adjust to and breaks in easier than just about any senior bat. They get to high performance levels quickly and a few have broken early in life. Reebok is taking care of those for the players. I got in some more last week and the guys that have hit them like them a lot. I'm happy to help you out if you have questions.

Grayhitter,
I think it's funny that you didn't sign your name to your post, why not?

I give honest information about any bat that I am asked about. It doesn't matter what company makes it, period. Team 1 Sports and Alan Tanner simply give out information that is based on factual experience, testing, and knowledge. If you see that as promoting, that is your choice.
Good luck to you Grayhitter and enjoy your Reebok, it's a fine bat.

Discussion: NEW Miken Triad Blackout Senior bat !!!

The Reebok Barrage wins that hands down. It's not close.
Second place would go to Mikens 2 PC end load.
Third place to the Combat Ambush.

Diesel,
You are basically correct. Depending on the players strength, technique, and bat speed you may need that many to get one crank in' hot. But...there are certainly respectable performance levels that you will encounter along the way. For guys who break bats regularly or want a truly long lasting senior bat the Blackout is certainly a wise choice. Guys that hit them, like them!

CY,
Some of the first batches of the 2 piece were a bit stiffer than others. My first testing of them got me results very much like you shared. It took a bit to get them to respond like a red one piece. Remember, the one piece end load was quite a hot bat too out of the wrapper but durability suffered as a result. The new 2 piece model now fits into both categories quite nicely....ie, a bat easy to break in while attaining acceptable levels of durability. These last 3 bats that we have been testing show a definitive improvement over the earlier ones. Enough so that they certainly impressed me with the outcome and thus, my posts.
Hit me deep!

Gary,
A very truthful look at technology and how it evolves! Btw, have you seen the new beer taps that fill the cup from the BOTTOM? Very impressive but I'm worried that the new technology might make me drink more since I just like to see the new machine work! Is that bad? Lol thanks for sharing and good luck this season.

In USSSA Mikens Rev X and Psyco are a great value and perform well. Combats newest offerings , the Avarice and the Virus Plague are very nice. The Avarice is about sold out already! I'm happy to discuss the hitting habits and needs with you to help them make an educated choice,.

Skeptical,
You seem to be contradicting yourself about the technology and the hitters skills in your posts. Technology , SKILL, AND HOURS OF HARD WORK, combined result in some of the results that were posted. Mix in years in the gym,on a bike, running on the road, and thousands of laps in a pool and add some great technology in. Result? What you read in the posts. I hit THOUSANDS of balls testing senior bats and PJ3P happens to like to do the same as is a regular participant in the abuse. Sometimes....and I say sometimes, we get to experience something a little better than normal and I inform guys of that. That's it, nothing more, nothing less. Any athlete who sacrifices and puts in the time over the years as we have likes to enjoy the fruits of his labors...and share them with others. Technology isn't ruining our sport or any other, it's a fact of life. I encourage you to put some time in and enjoy what you develop. Best of luck to you,

Round 2 withe the end loaded Miken 2 piece was much of the same.....bombs dropping from the sky, balls being picked up on the radar screen at the airport, birds having to change flight patterns AROUND the field instead of over it!
Seriously guys, I was impressed to say the least that the 26,27, and 28 ounce models all came to life quickly and even the 26 developed a much larger sweet spot today and distance and batted ball speeds that place these bats amongst the top of the list of any senior bat. Miken has clearly dialed in the 2 piece to just the right specs to make it truly a high performance senior bat.
More later in the week....

SGT.
I greatly appreciate your post. It's guys like you that help me keep my passion for the game and for helping others when I can. The Miken Blackout is certainly a great bat choice and it's durability is among the best in senior bats. I will have another "care package" to you soon. You guys make me proud of our servicemen and the best country in the world that we are blessed to live in.

We dodged raindrops for some bp this afternoon with the Miken Triad Blackout....another 50 or so swings and still going strong. The bat has reached another level of good senior bat performance and has proven to be HIGHLY durable. Nice work Miken!

Hey Ed,
How about I wade in and tell guys the same about you. Ed and I have had mutual business dealings with each other and with some of the same clients. I always have known him to be truthful and follow up with his clients as I also try and do. Ed, keep up the good work. The sport needs more of you.

Guys,
Just to clarify on pricing of the Avarice G2. Retail pricing is at $219.99. I stated it was around $200 but just wanted to be sure that you got accurate pricing as suggested by Combat.
Thanks,

Young man...!
You sir are correct with your dating but.....a bat that hits like this is worth mentioning in that light! Compared against other Usssa bats ,
( I've hit a few...:) !) this bat stands out. Very,very good right out of the wrapper for ANY year of bat.
Best to you Taits,
