Break-in time for the Miken Maxload
I just purchased the new Maxload and would like to get some ideas from the members of what is their experience of what the break-in time frame will be.

Approximately how many swings are needed before it is game ready?

Thanks Lecak, I wasn't sure if it was good out of the wrapper or needed to be broken in.

Ken, maybe I'll bring it Tuesday and get a few guys to use it during batting practice.

Jose#12, from my viewpoint I would suggest that it really doesn't require any breakin period. They are really a great bat right out of the wrapper. In fact, last night we were hitting one that was still IN the wrapper, we hit with 60 cor. 150 comp rubber balls, ( these balls don't damage the bats), and we were hitting them out with the Miken Ultra II maxload. These balls are 100 feet less than a .40 cor. 375 comp ball. And I definitely wouldn't be letting anyone else swing your bat. Keep it for when it matters!!

Thanks, that's good to know. Maybe I won't share, that's probably why so many of my bats have broken.

I wouldn't roll that bat, just hit it, you will be fine
