Bring back the grey combat !!!!!!!!
Heard all these great comments on the new Macenko Combat Gear. Could not wait to get my hands on one. When I first saw the bat it look like the Virus Combat Gear painted yellow. I never liked the virus gear and I knew of no one that did. Now, I am not a big home run hitter, but this new combat has alot to be desire. People I hit with say it hits like the virus, in fact one person said that it is a virus painted yellow. We hit over 100 swings with 375 44 core balls and it does not come close to the U II or the gray combat. Now, maybe it has to be broken in more, but it goes into my bag as a practice bat only.
I am down to 1 gray combat and was looking for a backup. Now, I have purchase a Ultra 2 as my backup till I can find someone willing to sale a end loaded gray.
Just one mans opinon, I could be wrong. BRING BACK THE GRAYS!!!!!!! Bob

If you are hitting 44/375 softballs then it will take a lot longer to break in. 44/525 or 47/525 will get it broke in faster.

If you have a 13 inch model then it will take 200 to 300 swings to start the break in period. If you have a 10 inch model it should take around 400+. One of the things Kevin was worried about with this bat is that people would give up on it too soon. This bat is made to be as hot as the Grey model but last a whole lot longer so it will take more swings to break in. The two I have are as hot as any Grey Combat I have ever owned.

Because of Walk, Stoney and my friends here in Florida, I think that I might have spoken to soon. But all I heard was {hot out of the wrapper} and in 25 swings the bat was ready to go, etc. All someone had to say was it breaks in like the Grays. Thanks for the knowledge. Bob

Dirty, the original Ultra is not allowed in every ballpark , like it's not allowed in BLD's, nor in Anaheim where we played two weekends ago, so we swing the Combat,which I used for the first time andI will be using it when ever i can't use my Ultra

I understand. He called it the hottest bat "ever made", not the hottest one that is legal today.

SG - It's the Ultra2 now that can be used (not @ BLD). The original gray Ultra was a very potent bat. Now maybe only used in some local leagues - or - some guys use them for cheater bats but there can't be too many of those left to get a hold of.

Jim can back up his contention about the "hottest" bat - just watch that boy hit some time. Good thing he lives in a big state.

Hits pretty well for an older guy ( ;

He will hit 100's of balls during a BP session with some going 400 swings or more. That's what it takes to stay on top - dedication & practice. Him and Keith can wear out a field.

I have a pitching machine with a shoot that will hold 30 balls @ a time, mounted on a flat bed small trailer. I can go to my church softball field by myself and get in 200 swings each sat. take 50 ground ball and 50 flys to the outfeild. You do not need to know all of that. The machine I have pitches about like a bad church leage pitcher.
I need a good pitching machine that throws strikes --- anyone have a good recommendation?????
