Miken Recoil
Has anyone come across any info on the new Miken Recoil bat line?
Is it to replace the UII or a different type bat.

By the way, I play with a Combat Senior and have over 250 hits on it and it's great! One small 1/8" piece of surface material has been chipped off. probably from hitting the stitches but it doesn't affect paly.

Based on the commercial on Softball 360 it looked as if they were for USSSA and ASA only use. The standard they will have to meet is the Rip-It ASA bat. I hit both the Elite and the ASA bat Rip-It bats at the Florida Classic Spring Training in Febuary and the ASA bat is very hot with reportedly good longevity. Someone will have to come up with some comparison bp's and let everone know.

I am not a bat expert by any means, heck, I can hardly hit. But I have noticed over the past few years that Miken has a new bat almost 2/3 times a year. It seems like the same bat with a new paint job or a adjustment here and there, but still the same old bat. If they are new bats than why can they not just keep one model for awhile or is this the way Miken makes the fatihful keep buying bats ?
You guys know better than I, please let us know.

azsenior,

its like the new Easton line. From what I hear its pretty much a repaint and maybe a tweak here and there for the flex and Stealths.
Its like new model cars....$$$$$$$$$

If you go to Softball Fans website (Ialways just google Soffball fans and go their bulletin section) They have excellent reviews on all bats by players. If you scroll down and look under the manufacturer section for the specific bat mfg. There are several reviews on this bat there.

Azbatguy, I don't know what you were looking at on softballfans.com!!! There is about 12 different threads w/posts in all of them about the recoil. I don't remember any posts that said it was poor. Most of the posts were very positive, while the others were waiting for the bat to break in, they only had 100 or so hits on them, and would post later after break in is complete.

I guess if its not about rip-it bats you have nothing good to say.

I'll wait and see what happens w/the recoil reviews and decide then. I'll just keep useing my senior combat, or whatever bat works best for my swing. It doesn't matter what brand bat I use just as long it works for me and my swing and gives the results I want and looking for.
