Miken 2 pc End Load vs Reebok End Load
Hi
I'm interested in buying one of these bats. But haven't decided which at this time.

I am looking at the Miken 2 piece end load or the Reebok end load.

Please give any information you may have to help me decide.

Thanks

The reebok end load is as good bat as any for senior softball. Finding the right
Weight is paramount, please sample different bat weights if you can.
Haven,t hit miken,s new 2 piece.

I agree and the end load varies quite a lot the different size Reeboks. For instance the 29 swings lighter than the 28.

Az lz -- Our Senior league in Richardson Tx. Last Tuesday I saw a guy hit a low linedrive out of park with the new Miken 2 Piece. It was at least his 2nd over fence of the game as it was same as a walk. I looked at bat and it was new, he told me that was his 3rd swing.

The bat really appears to be lively.

I have had both bats and they are both really excellent. To me it comes down to what feels good in your hands. The Reebok may have more fans since its been around longer but the two piece is a good bat. Alan Tanner is a good source of info on bats.
Good luck with your choice.

I was told the Miken 2 piece is every bit as good as the Miken Red bat which is very comparable in performance to the end loaded Reebok. Plus it's supposed to have better durability than either the Miken Red or Reebok.

How do you get a Miken 2 piece? Get a Miken Ultra or Maxload and use it. How to get a Miken 3 piece? Get a Miken 2 piece and use it.

Some things never change - except for your checkbook balance if you decide to keep using them.......

If you want to bet on a sure thing bet on gravity. If you want to lose - bet on Miken durability............has as much pop as a bottle of champagne on new years eve - and about the same life span

Alan is a good source. I am in the west near you and perhaps I can answer questions to be of help as well. Will be in Vegas this week-end if you are there and need to speak with me.

Crusher,

Who was the batter, and what team was he playing for?

I have noticed a few players hitting the ball further than normal......don't know if it is the bat, the machine, or the winds gusting out.
