Combat mm
Have a Combat MM with 50 swings on it, and the end cap keeps coming out about a 1/2 inch, have had 4 MM'S and this is the 1st to do this,, have tried gorilla glue & epoxys but doesn't work,, two swings and it Pops out, any ideas?? And does it reduce the Bats Power? Thanks Hoover

There is I believe a mention of this problem about 2 years back from some players and Gorilla glue was one that was recommended. There was a marine glue but do not remember the name, Do a search on here.
You might try asking at a shoe repair place. Their glue is stronger than the store stuff.
It you haven't had it long you might try calling where you got it...

i called anaconda a couple years back with the same prol,they said i could send it in and be without it for 4-6 weeks at least,or use 3M MARINE GLUE 5200.they said wait till the cap has come up from hitting and use a butter knife and push it the rest of the way.clean both the barrel and the cap and make sure nothing is left.put a thin coating of the glue on both the barrel and cap,pop cap back in and let it set for 7 days.
it was a service rep who told me what to do,it worked for mine.

I tried driving that cap out in a vise, with a chisel, and it would not come out, its going to be a practice bat anyway,, so I'll just clean whats exposed and use the 3M Marine Glue, a Shrimper I work with says its good stuff! Thanks
