Super Freak Maxload
I've a got a 27oz. 2009 Miken Super Freak Maxload arriving tomorrow by UPS. I hope it hits and feels as good as they say. Does anyone out there have one. I plan on getting a lease 200 BP swings with it before Pensacola. This bat may last a while.

I got one a while ago but only started to put some swings on it last weekend.

Bat is very stiff right now and you can reaaly feel the end load which I like

Will take more cuts and let others take more cuts this weekend in the hopes of loosening her up.

Hope to have it ready by Phoenix.

I got a feeling this is gonna be a good bat

Hey Lefty,
You made a good choice.
I have 200+ swings on mine and it gets hotter every swing.
It's great in BP unlike the other 1.2 bats out now
cause you can't crack it.
it's stiff just like the old Freak was
till it gets hot.
My old Freak got hot only after 1000 swings
then it got very hot helping us, (seven of us) win a Major plus national title.
When it gets hot you will have a max loaded ultra 2
which should be as good or better than the Original Grey Ultra.
Just keep hitting it
and watch Mike Kelly's son Anthony's video on this website
that had that had 300 + swings on it.

Thanks 18Mike and Einstein. I heard if you like a end load bat this is the one. I seen the video of kelly sports and they really like the bat. You could tell by there choice of words. I have all the good senior bats and I love them all. I would like to have a bat that would last a while.

Hey Lefty,
It sounds like my experience with bats is not more than yours
but it seems that every bat has plusses and minuses.
Which makes them all different and the same.
The SuperFreak when it gets in the hot zone
after who knows how many swings
will like any other 1.2 bat only have a limited number of swings left till it goes.
Again, with the Super Freak you have a bat barrel that was wrapped
by the manufacturer to get hotter to infinity
just like the Original Freak was.
I had one that got as hot or hotter than any Ultra 2 I've ever swung
as I mentioned earlier.
Why would the bat companies as they are interested in making money
make us a bat that would be durable, hot and lasting.
Then, the wouldn't be able to sell us
as many bats.

einstein your right about this bat. It came in dismoring and the guy I normally hit with was out of town. I guess I got lucky for I hit off the tie with this super freak. I normally hit well off a tie but this bat right the wrapper hit great. I had a few freaks in my time and off the tie this bat is sick. I can't see how this bat will stay legal in USSSA or NSA. I can't wait to try it with live pitching. The 27oz I baught doesn't feel that end loaded to me. I have 72 swings off the tie today with 44core375comp. and used dudleys. I plan on hitting it again tomorrow and the next day until my buddy shows up for live pitching. To me live pitching breaks in a bat alot faster than with a tie.

Lefty,
I forgot to mention that the Super Freak is a warranty bat
unlike Combat or Ultra 2.
That's 2 bats for the price of one
which means about $130 or so per bat.
You just have to be willing to break it in
and spend the time doing it.
I like that idea because it gives me a bat
I can use in BP and saves my game ready ones.

einstein Hey einstein I went with BP live pitching with the Super Freak. First if I remember right my freak took a while to break in. I'm on my second BP with the Super Freak. I'm probably starting at 80 swings. The first 36 I hit 5 home runs and it hit line drives great. The second round of 36 I hit 12 home runs, missed one ball and the rest reached the fence. Which is 300 feet with very little win. 375/44 balls. My buddy who was a pretty good ball player is his time hit around 12 with it and said to him it's not broken in. I have alot of bats and the Super Freak hits from the end cap to what we call the handle like an Ultra 2. If you hit the sweet spot you'll think it's a Ultra 2 with a little end load. Now is this a sick bat. Now saying that I have baught 2 Ultra 2's and one hit better than the other. So maybe the bat that you buy may take a little longer than your buddy's Super Freak. I give it a 10 for a USSSA bat.
