Touch and go right now. I hit an unexpected shipment in this week but can't get them to commit to making more yet. ....it's possible there will be no more till June and after that they aren't saying anything. Quite a stressful story but that's what I am told at this point.

Is it just me or are the newer Melee's taking more & more to break in? The Reebok has been my choice of bats since they were introduced. I still have 5 Reebok's that I'm still trying to get to be tournament ready.

Mark, I also think they are taking longer to break in, hope this means they will last longer also.

Manny and Mark,
I have had several reports of a little extra break in on the Melees and added durability from guys I have got bats out to. I just received the shipment of the new ones today. As I do when test bats, I randomly pull bats from stock orders from each company. That way we all get a fair evaluation of each bat model and also evaluation of batches. I will be working on a few of the new Melees this week and next and I'll update you guys on my findings. If you have questions you can reach me via email or phone.

I had a senior Melee LEngend end load last me 1400 hundred swings last year. No senior bat has ever come close to this bat in my opinion. I wish they would keep making it.

Did you ever make any contact with any of those 1400 swings? That May have been why it lasted so long.

There is no change in the Melee process. There may be some change in materials purchased in bulk and used in the manufacture process, but the Melee is the same as it has been from the beginning. Reebok has not made a great deal of profit from senior bat sales when comparing to profits from Taylor Made golf or CCR hockey stick, etc etc, thus the cut in production.

I have balanced and end load Melee's and Barrage's in stock and can ship same day if contacted before noon. Appreciate the opportunity to help you.

Have a great day out there.

My end load was a hot bat but only lasted half a season.
