Discussion: Miken Senior Bat Review- shich is the best bat of the 3?

The 2piece white has taken forever to break in. About 400 swings so far. No problem with durability. Can't tell yet about the final pop at this point. A dud from the beginning, but started to open up at about 200 swings. A little behind my red at this point. Not going to be hot out of the wrapper.

JR, do you wear the mids or the lows? If both, is there much difference in weight?

Discussion: Tanel Shoes

My current pair of Tanels are 10 and a half. My toes however are right at end. Not uncomfortable, but no room at all. I'm thinking maybe 11s the next time.

Discussion: Tanel Shoes

I have the midi 360 turf shoe. Style 8317 M, if that helps. It is not the "light" version. I compared the weight to some midi 3N2 shoes I had from the prior year, and the Tanels were somewhat heavier according to the food scale I weighed them on. Love Tanels, just trying to find the lightest model. Rarely play in the outfield. 1st base mostly.

Discussion: Tanel Shoes

I have a pair of midi Tanel shoes. While I love the support and comfort, they are heavy. Has anyone had experience with the regular 360's and the light 360's? Is there much of a difference?

Discussion: Las Vegas Fields and Umpires

65 AAA at Lorenzi was very well run. Umps were knowledgeable and fields were in excellent shape. We got moved from Desert Breeze just before the tourney started. Never played at Desert Breeze, but Lorenzi was excellent.

Discussion: Bat restrictions for Seniors.

Never swung a ti, but I still have my original Ultra. Hottest bat by far I have ever swung. Hit one off the handle in a game that I thought would be a 280 ft. fly out. Ended up in a tree about 15 ft. beyond the fence.

Discussion: HAS ANYBODY TRIED THIS?

Use a rubber mallet up and down the barrel at first. I think this breaks the bat in evenly. After several sessions, then batting practice.

Tri18, Give me your impression of the new Miken 2 piece endload. Have read many posts and some are contradictory. Thanks, Ron

Discussion: Miken 2 piece

Yes, I like the Red Maxload also. But since they no longer make it,thought I would try the white 2 piece maxload. Also another point of interest, one post said the White Maxload was not as endloaded as the Red and recommended an ounce heavier.
Checked them both out and the balance point is about 3/4 of an inch back on the White. Definitely the White is more end loaded than the Red.

Discussion: Miken 2 piece

I just purchased the new Miken 2 piece Maxload. I have read a lot of posts on this bat. Some say it is hot right out of the wrapper, some say it takes 100 or more cuts to open up.Some say it is a dud period. Some posts say the durability is good, some not.Some of the most interesting posts say that the bat is "not a home run bat, but a line drive bat". This same post stated that the balls hit with this bat had "great speed through the infield, but died in the outfield". I would think the "dying" effect would be more of a function of the softball rather than the bat. For those of you that have used this bat, what is real and what is urban legend.

Discussion: weightlifting

Lift year round. Heavy from November to April, 6 sessions per week. 2 chest and tris, 2 back and bis, 2 legs and Macenko bat drill. Back off the weight and amount of workouts once the season begins. Works best for me.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Step across the aisleuit the game and go fishin'

First year in senior ball at age 67. Playing down in 60 major plus. I rather like the pitching rules/limits as they are. What might be discussed is the juking/ faking of the pitch before the actual delivery, sans USSSA rules. The real good Utrip pitchers are really good at this. No one pitch is then served up as they may be perceived now. No matter how patient you are, there is usually a little timing issue. This gives the pitcher a little advantage over what they have now. The disadvantage is it slows the game down a tad. Food for thought
