Monogamy is rare in senior softball.

Discussion: When to postpone shoulder surgery?

Sisavic,
I also suggest you get it done soon. I had the exact same issues and held off on mine. I played 1 last tournament and went under the knife. Doc said "it was worse then I thought it would be" the bone spur had severed the rotator cuff completely. Had mine done in 2011, 12 weeks minimum recovery and 1 year before the strength returns to max. It's nice to throw without pain. Just wish I could run without pain now. Best of luck to you.

Discussion: bad Ultra 2

AP,
There is more than enough feed back on this and other forums to prove Miken is most likely not fully vetting every bat that is returned. There was nothing in the form letter I received with the return of my bat that stated it was field tested, it only stated that the bat passed your compression test.

Vilifying customers is unbecoming.

Contact me if you would like to discuss.

Discussion: Miken SPU2P Ultra II USA 2012

AP,

I stand by my previous comment as to Miken's QC issues. You may feel they have been addressed, but I'm not so sure. My red max-load passed the "compression" test and was sent back to me with a form letter saying such. There seems to be no batch or serial numbers on the bad run so tracking bad bats must be nearly impossible for you guys. If you hit one of these duds long enough it will pass the comp test, but the bat will still be an under performer. On the up side the U2 durability issue seems to have been solved with this batch, after about 500-600 swings (most of mine only last 400) it shows no signs of wear. I only use mine for BP and I finally got one out of the park last week with this bat (I think the wind was blowing out).

I realize this is a no warrantee model, I knew that going in, I never bought an Ultra for its durability, It's always been about performance.

Feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss.

Skins,
If it is not preforming send it back now. The longer you use it the less likely they are to replace it. I will not be buying any Miken products even if they turn out to be the best. I can hit it out with any senior bat (except with the dud they refused to replace).

Miken has quality control issues with the older U2 models. It's a crap-shoot to see if you get a good one and an even bigger crap-shoot to get a dud replaced. I'd stay clear of them unless you have money to gamble with.

Discussion: Miken is NOT taking care of the problem Ultra IIs

My newest red UII has yet to hit a ball over 300'. I sent it back, they compression tested it and it "passed". Without a call or email they sent it back to me. A team mate sent his in and is getting a new one. We both bought our bats from the same vender at a tournament in FL at the same time. I continued to hit my bat and let other power hitters use it in the hopes that it would open up. With over 400 swings it has never got any better. Compression test pass or not, this bat will not perform.

I think the secret here is to send a dud back right away. The more you hit it the more likely it is to pass the compression test.

I have been a Miken fan for many years and have bought 3 to 4 senior bat a year + league bats. I have bought my last Miken bat.
