Discussion: REEBOK BARRAGE vs MIKEN ULTRA 2PIECE MAXLOAD

Today will be interesting. Driving to Durango, Colorado over a snow packed mountain pass. Temp right now (6:30AM) is 15 degrees. Navigate thru airports on Christmas Eve and land in Tampa at 8PM this evening. Drive north on I-75 to Ocala.

Have my gear and will play some ball if there are pickup games going on this week. Have Melee's and Barrage's with me. If you need them, give me a call.
Merry Christmas All!!!

Webbie, Really glad to hear you are already on the mend. Hope you get some warmer weather in NM so the healing will happen even more quickly. Is really cold up here in the mountains. Please let me know how you are doing when you can.
Merry Christmas,

Back to the topic of playing ball, I will be flying to Tampa on 12/24 and will be in Ocala area for a few days. I have my gear there and would like to do some BP if possible somewhere or play a game or two or three.

Also have Melee and Barrage bats there and will help you if you need one.

Discussion: Reebok Barrage Legend is GREAT BAT

I too like the Barrage and it swings like a mild end load from my standpoint. I have all weights, including 30's. I will be in Florida on 12/24, then driving back to Colorado on the 27/28th. If I can be of help, call on me. Merry Christmas!!!

curve: I keep hearing about this but do not know this to be the case.

Discussion: Reebok Melee end load question

Kyphogt: The Melee EL is approximately 1/2 ounce end loaded and the 26 is a very popular model. The new Barrage 26 is a very mild EL and both bats are performance oriented. Reebok also makes the 26 balanced Melee and again, players like that bat.

I have not swung the Steel. If I can be of assistance, please let me know.

I have also been swinging this bat in colder temps as I live in colder region. As stated above, a few have experienced early breakage on defective bats but for the most part, a relatively strong, high performance bat.

Discussion: Nasty rattle in Reebok Melee

Chances are it is excess glue from glueing the knob on to the handle. I have had it happen to me and in my particular case, it had no bearing on the performance of the bat.

NUTS: Obviously, technology and materials are advancing and materials are getting better if a company elects to purchase higher quality materials. There are multiple companies that manufacture industrial coatings and composite materials. Also, there are multiple clear coatings available in the industrial arenas. The Barrage is for the most part, a quality bat and has good performance out of the plastic.

Discussion: What's the best bat for open tournaments?

As others are saying, everyone has an opinion and seems to make it known. This is my first time on the boards since driving across country and flying back last week, both trips among the nasty cold winter storms. Thankful the great Lord guided me safely home to Colorado.

Wishing all of you folks a wonderful Christmas and let's keep Christ in Christmas!!!

Enjoyed driving to Orlando to play ball on Friday. Met some really nice guys and played a double header. The wether was warm and a nice change for me. The Reebok Barrage worked very well in the 73 degree temp.

Have Melee/Barrage bats, will travel.
