Ultra 2 Maxload
Is the shell of the red Maxload the same as the black balanced model, and the only difference between the two (besides the color) is the endload?

Supposed to be.
What's going on Gary, you going to buy another "special" bat,
Not special, just legal for that league or tournament I'b bet.
Enjoy it.

taits, I am thinking of it. Of course they are "special", who under 50 can legally use it? I will use them if others can legally, still don't see the point to it, but if it is legal I can play along.

BTW, thank for the info.

Dirty,
I have both bats. I do like them both. They claim the material is the same with the only exception being balanced versus end loaded. There is definitely a different feel with maxload. The ball still jumps though. My only recommendation would be to drop down an ounce with the maxload so you can maintain your bat speed.

That is exactly what I was thinking of doing. From a 29 down to a 28. Thanks.

It seems the endload is breaking faster than black ultra II.They do not make a 29 oz endloaded . I bought a 30oz which is much too heavy to swing .
Some players have only got 100 + swings
before they broke.I will say one thing they are hot out of the wrapper!!

They definitely don't need a break in period. I am only using the max load in games. No batting practice. I have hit balls farther with the regular balanced Ultra II but with the max load the ball seems to still fly even with a slighty miss hit. I'm 6'4" and 240 lbs. I'm swinging a 26 oz. max load and swing a 27 oz. balanced.
