JWIG: 4 most Senior events, the old U-2, is the best Senior bat. 2nd best, Senior Combat.... The new U-2, still will break faster than the Combat. The Combat, seems to last 3 to 4 time longer than th U-2.

JWIG... R u a power hitter, do u hit 'hard' line drives, or do u hit to all fields? Will u be playing ASA, NSA, ISA, ISSA( which is a 'form' of ASA), etc.

SPA, LVSSA, SS-USA, & ISA (not sure 4 how long), will allow the U-2 bat. K2, owns MIKEN & WORTH. As of today, the WORTH Composite bats r, or have been made by MIKEN. WORTH, is coming out w/ a SENIOR BAT. I have been told that this 'New' WORTH BAT, is made by MIKEN.( this comes from several Major Plus, men from the East Coast.)

As far as bats:: 1) U-2 2) Senior Combat 3) Miken 600 Series or Worth's: a) JEFF HALL b) M-7 MAYHEM C) FREAK PLUS d) 585.... also, Combat's ANTI-VIRUS

I am sure that there r a few others: Wrath, Evo, Rip-It, etc. C what u're team mates r hitting or went u do play, ask the other team players.

The U-2, is still number 1, when allowed.

GOOD LUCK.............. The STONEMAN

STONEMAN: Thank you for the information on the bats,I have been on ebay looking around and talking with other players and they are high on the U2 and senior combat also.I am pretty much a line drive and good about going to all fields I will sneak a long ball in on occasions or by accident but i am not considered a long ball hitter. I have been playing with the younger guys and I was just courious how people my age still played, So far I am impressed. Thanks again and keep swinging the old bat.

JWID: R we compair' a balance bat to a balance bat? Or r we compair' a balance bat to an END LOADED bat?

The U-2 is a great bat..... The U-2, is a balance bat. 4 me, even when I hit a H.R. or a rope, the hands r ahead of the bats "head". The SENIOR Combats & Anti-virus, the Miken 600 End Load Series, that I swing, r all END LOADED. I do not 'feel' my hands lead' the bats head.

An END LOADED bat, will increase ones bat speed by 5 to 10 percent. That is why, one can go up 2 oz, on an END LOAD. The U-2's, r balanced & weigh about 1 oz heavier.

Miken's, 585, Freak Plus, & 600 Series bats have lasted me well over 1000 swings. Miken's U-2's, last me any where from 60 to about 150 swings.

In late fall, winter, & earlier spring, be sure to hit 44 cor balls w/ a 375 comp. If, one hits 47 cor balls or balls w/ a 525 comp, ones bats will break sooner.

The SENIOR COMBAT, even @ this time of the yr, will last me 3 to 4 times longer than a U-2.

Again, 4 me, I have several bats that I think r almost as good as a U-2. The next best bats r:: 1) SENIOR Combat
2) 585 or 600 Series Miken. Miken & Worth, bats r very close to one another.

The best... long last' bat 4 me & several other, is the TPS CATALYST. This bat has over 3000 swings.

GOOD LUCK.........The STONEMAN
