REEBOK LEGEND SENIOR VS COMBAT YELLOW MM
I own the yellow combat mm and I really like it, it hits very well. Now I hear the Reebok Legend outhits the Combat MM. Has anybody hit these 2 bats? Can anybody shed some light on this? Which has more pop is my question. Would like to purchase a 26oz Reebok Senior if it out hits my Yellow MM.

I have used both bats extensively. The Yellow MM End Load lasted longer.The Yellow Reebok broke in faster and did not last as long.Reebok feels more end loaded.Distance was about the same but I would not argue with anyone that claims the Reebok has more pop.

The Reebok MeLee Legend is an excellent choice to replace your yellow combat since they are no longer made. Reebok performance will be as good and sometimes slightly better than the Combat although the yellow Combat is known for excellent durability as well. The 26 end load will swing very closely to the Combat as it's swing weight/balance point are somewhat similar. I think you will be very happy with a Reebok. Get with me if you need to track one down.

I would hit that Yellow MM until it breaks... I rate the Yellow over the rebook... just as much pop with durability! Best bat I have owned it the seniors so far...I been going through three Reeboks a year since breaking my Yellow MM that lasted me a Year plus!

hi playball212,i have had both bats. the yellow MM was more durable,but reebok for me hits a little farther also has a heavier endload than MM.the yellow MM was replaced by a blue gray MM.i talked with Mike and he said the blue has the same specks as the yellow.i have one and I also like it,it hits as well as the yellow model. good luck

rbigs51... if the blue MM was the same spec they would be selling them for$300. I bought one took about 100 swings and it broke.. Not the same animal...and the sales of that Blue MM is proof! Out of 100 teams I might see on or two of those same spec bats! LOL

Very soon there will be a bat out with unmatched durability, I have been hitting it for weeks now and it is ridiculous in both performance and durability. So far about 1400 swings and still going strong.

maddog, I have been playing senior softball now for 4 tourny's. I use a usssa bat or an asa bat. The senior bats hit the ball to far for me. Line drives in the 6 hole end up on the other side of the fence, totally stupid.

52/300 ball with asa bat sucks! 44 375 is fine for ss and asa! Now you have new asa mats to hit these 52crap balls! Explain that!

All of my old bats hit the .52 just fine, as to why ASA changed their bat spec? I am going to take a guess at it. Maybe so players can't cry about ASA bats being less than usssa bats in performance.

Usssa and nsa both have the ,52 ball and in usssa and asa the manufactures sell more .52 than .40 and .44's.

Asa is trying to get players playing again.

BTW my favorite bat to hit the .52 with is the original anti-virus.

BTW I find it odd that you are on here crying about the ball still. It has been in play for over 4 years now. I made it 7 years ago.
