Discussion: looking for a 55 team

Discussion: ultras

Im 6ft3 and about 260 and i swing pretty hard.I still hit it a good ways so i was wondering how long a maxload may last me.I had a 30 oz that lasted at least 150 swings or more before breaking and i just came across a 28oz that i havent used yet.I had heard that the heavier bats may have lasted longer than the 28s.Has anyone else came across that?

I would like to get some feedback on just how fast some ultra maxload bats have broken, how many swings did it take?

I would like to know if the miken ultras or the reebok melees that you see on anaconda sports,kellys or direct sports are 2012 models or 2011 models? If they are 2011 models then are 2012 models available and if so where?

Discussion: reebok

I got a reebok senior bat when they first came out and the first couple of times that i used it i felt the same thing. I actually felt like the bat was breaking off at the handle when i hit the ball.I put the bat in the bag and used my miken till it broke and decided rather than buy a new one i would try to use the reebok again.I used another bat and a rubber mallet and beat on the bat till the paint started to spider web.Once this happened and i used it the bat was awesome.Just as much distance as the ultra and it hasnt broken yet.

Discussion: reebok vis a vis ultra....a year later

I got a reebok senior bat in april and didnt use it very often until my ultra maxload cracked after fifty or so swings and at first hated it.the reebok just didnt seem to have any pop and felt really funny when i hit the ball.So i took the cracked ultra and each day used it to hit the reebok, i kept rotating the reebok in my hand while hitting it with the ultra finally after about 250 hits the paint started to crack a little and the next league game i used it.Well i must say since then i put it right up there with the ultras in distance and may be even more durable.

Discussion: worth bats

Yes al33, i know clatta and actually have played with him in a few tournaments.Im originally from virginia and everyone who ever played any serious ball there knows who clatta is.I play senior ball now and a guy on an opposing team used one of these worth bats the other night and the ball really hopped off it so i was just wondering if other people had used it with good results and if it was balanced or endloaded?

Discussion: reebok melee

I have a 29 ounce end load reebok melee and have only used it a couple of times,i cant really complain about it because i havent used it enough but i have a few questions.First when i really hit it on the screws it sounds like glass breaking now ive heard thats a good thing is it or isnt it? And secondly i use the overlapping grip and it has only happened with this bat and now it has happened twice but when i hit it solid for some reason the area between my right thumb and index finger gets pinched. Ive taken the grip off and checked to see if maybe the handle was broken but its not. Has this happened to anyone else?

Discussion: another one bites the dust

Well just had another MIKEN MAXLOAD ULTRA break on me.This one lasted all of 35 swings and just in games no batting practice.I love playing the game but its getting expensive having to buy two or three bats a year.Has anyone ever had any luck returning an ultra?

Discussion: trade

I have a 29 ounce end loaded reebok melee and am looking to trade it for a 28 0unce miken maxload.The melee has about ten swings on it and its a little to heavy for me.

Discussion: hitting

Thanks i understand that you have to focus more.Actually what i wanted to say was that im right handed and stand in the front of the box and pretty close to the plate so these guys were throwing right at me and the ball was breaking to the plate. i was having a hard time deciding whether to swing or not and i wanted some input on what guys did to help them hit these curves

Discussion: hitting

thanks for the imput vinny and i did hit it i believe i was 17 -20 with 12 homers so i wasnt asking because i cant hit it i just had to move around in the box and couldnt stand where i normally do and my question was to find out what others did to hit it

I think senior leagues should go to utrip rules all the way around.If you use utrip bats and decent balls people that can hit them will still be able to hit them.Also with the lower arc hitters can control where the ball is going better when they swing rather than fighting off some twenty foot high pitch and smashing one back up the middle.I think the utrip bats and maybe a 44/375 ball would be great.

So now that its warmed up, what is the verdict on the reebok senior bat? How are they holding up and are they as good as the miken?

Discussion: hitting flaw

Thanks for the comments webbie,but how do you know that i have such a great swing?Ive been watching alot of videos on you tube and i may have come across something. I remembered a tip from mike macenko about if youre hitting alot of grounders bring your elbows in closer together and i realized that unknowingly my right elbow had gotten very high and separated from my body.On all the videos i watched all the good hitters had that right elbow tucked in close to the body.As soon as i can get out im going to try that and see if it works.
