? About the Ultra 2 Advance
Has anyone hit with this bat without breaking it. I've got the Combat but would still like to get another Ultra 2. I just don't want to throw money down the drain.

Lefty, If you click on batguyaz's name you will find that he's a shill for the rip it bat. I haven't hit the new Ultra yet but I can't imagine that Miken would spend the money to re-engineer the rest of the bat when all they seem to be doing is changing the knob so that it prevents people from cheating (younger guys) by painting the bat to make it look like something else. You might want to research it a bit further. Some of the bat experts on this site are pushing other bat companies and some of them could hit homers with a piece of wood. Good luck.

Michael, I couldn't agree more. This guy has been pushing the Rip-It ever since he made his debut on the board.
Shill is to kind of a word.

Well said Michael...I get that feeling to when reading all that is posted on bats.

Here in Hawaii the Ultra II's are good to go.
I let some guys use my "original" combat da bomb senior bat the Silver one I got when it came out in Aug/Sept 06.
It goes, it's alright, feels good and I use it.
But the "Man" in the Senior's Game is the Ultra II. by far the bat used by the Vast Majority of Seniro players.
Are they buying other brands? Yes I hope so that's why we have choices of products.
But when we travel to other Tourney's on the Mainland guess what...Ultra II's are in everybody's dugout and probably 7-8-9 guys swing it and crush with it.

Players should buy what they like...I usually swing a DeMarini 375 or the F2 now the F3.
Works for me bec' on our team I am not the Big HR guy.
Oh yeah I do have an Ultra II, 30oz.
Good Luck and as always Buyer Beware...it's your money until you give it to the seller then it's your bat and his money.

Stones, you didn't say if your U2 is an Advanced. I tried one and did not like the knob. The knob makes the Advance shorter the the original U2 because it is thicker than the normal knob. Try one before you purchase one. I have several original U2's (not for sale) and will not be using the Advance. Good luck.

Got both models...
Yes that new knob is kinda Funky, gotta get use to it.
I did..not to be vile or anything, Crush a few w/the new one.
Not as consistently as the old one but it works just as well.
SSUSA has that commorative one going on sale in FL for those participating.
Like the looks of that bat.

I suppose the Combats, Rip-It's and the rest will make it's way onto the Senior Circuit but for now my Friend as you know and I know the Ultra II is the "Man"

Thanks for the inputs. I guess what I'll have to look at the temp. and how mush the ball happens to be that day before I pick the bat of choice. If I do get a Ultra II later I shouldn't need it until the temp. gets to 90 degrees. I'll just use my senior combat or freak plus at the lower temp.. But it still depends on the ball. From what I see the Senior bats are for games only not BP. Good luck to all this year.

Who said women? Lol

Seriously, if you look at your posts you will see that 90% of them are either extolling the virtues of Rip It products (for whatever reason) or bashing somebody else’s stuff. You may want to help the distribution of their product, but anything you say comes off as a cheap attempt at promotion. I suggest that you just give it a rest.

I actually agree and am sorry if I over stepped my bountries.
I will stay off the Rip It thing and just chill.

Have a new Ultra ll Advanced and love it. Just as good as the Ultra ll. I would not think it would last any longer than the Ultra ll as the MFG process is the same except for the handle. I think you will be very pleased with the Advanced. I have been.
