Discussion: Miken Ultra II balanced and end load.

If a bat would give 200 to 300 hits of life I would be happy ,Since I only play once a week(placed 9 th or 10th in the hitting line up)this averaging 3 to 4 times at bat this simple math would give me 50 to 70 games of use .
A player on another team wants to buy my red u2 when the deal happens the money collected is going towards a" ....."
As a user all I want is 10 more feet of distance over my aged "585"

I am not against buying a "reebok " bat .what I would like in a bat is out of the wrapper ready ,I am to old to waiting for a "magical" break in period to take place and when it happens my next worry is when the bat's barrel will crack.

at one time I made a machine to test bat barrel performance "several" things i learned was when the day came the bats performance increased it wasn't much longer till it started to crack .

Before the test machine got scraped. I had the chance to test a bat called a 510 ,to my surprise it tested the highest of any bat I ever tested high .just some fyi.

My three question are:
1)how long the life of the "melee"?(amount of hits until it breaks)
2)is there any type of warranty coverage ?
3)how long, or does it have a break in ?

I want to win games too ,I hope players in the market for a new bat will read this thread,imo all the new mikens are duds and not worth buying.if Reebok and combat have better peforming bats the buyers should look to them.Reciently I purchased a cracked red ultra just for the purpose of seeing inside ,after cutting off the end cap what was seen is the interior walls are thinner but more dense than freaks nrgs and 484's from the past,I think miken changed the desighn requiring less materials to make a bat ,the terminal performance is no distance short life and with no warranty replacement.

I have a hard time believing in bats made by shoe manufacturer ,such as "nike "and "reebok"

i have seen many different types rollers ,imo i don't believe results can be obtained with a few turns of a handle ;alone the this idea is the fact to much rolling can effect bat life .

with my machine shop back ground maybe is it time to construct a motorized rolling machine along with a barrel deflection gauge to test its results .

next problem i have seen with the bat is the miken u2's they dont seem to last .there are a ton of them for sale on ebay either cracked or broken,life is short and performance is bad.I would like to try a 510 launch or an early black u2 next.

I purchased ( a month ago) a miken ultra 2 end load the bat has a red barrel transitions to a black handle real fancy looking,like said above "my" bat is "dead" in distance also ,I figured it was me and my loss in bat speed until a guy on a former team i played in asked to try it out in bp.during our work out session the furthest distance the ball flew for each of us was 280 feet .To elemanate the possibility of dead yellow balls being the problem .I reached in my bat bag and pulled out a 8 year old red tps warrior aluminium bat.Same balls flew 280 to 290 feet.it has a 1.21bpf stamp on it.
