New U2 - have the 1.20 stamp ?
I am going to buy a the new U2 with the old knob. Can anyone tell me if it has the 1.20 stamp on it ? Someone told me it no longer is on the bat and our league requires the 1.20.

batgoyaz, I guess their are other places but I have had good luck with Kellys. They always treat you right and Mike Kelly still plays a little softball so I feel he knows what a player needs and trys to take care of us.

notice that these new ones are 26 oz. the original U2 were 27 oz.! There was no 26 oz. so that tells me something is different:) Good Luck:)

I don't think mikens patent would allow them to produce the SAME EXACT bat.
They are now in 26'es (which some repainted original greys were, a few hundred plus or so had a bubble also,) but I doubt the actual make up of these is the same as the 1st batches were with the paper knob sticker. Or even for that matter with the later issued bubbles. Best ones were the paper stickered and few bubbles before them.
Marketing....say you made what they liked and sell what you can.

Miken has no say it what K2 wants to do. The once mighty king of bats is now just a shadow of a large ocrp monster.
Not really a bad thing. Miken sales are slow to say the least. Big brother is looking to see if Worth ( also K2) can pick up there the broken U2 has left off. Make a change here and there, add some new paint and the senior group will buy into the .new' bat gimmick.
Don't get me wrong guys, not putting down any company or product. Just telling it as it is.
