Miken Titanium Bats - Is it Legal for SSUSA
Guys, in a cost saving move - I have been taken BP - exclusively with a Miken Titanium Bat (Ebay Special 130.00) It does not have as Much POP as a Senior Bat! But is has good pop for BP purposes!!

No Dings, No Cracks, No Rattles PLUS a 18 month warranty.

I just noticed that the Advertising states that it is Legal for SSUSA - Is this true??

Big D it's legal for Utrip. The Titanium they are talking about is from a few years back. They hit very well. Are you going to TOC.

This might make you think or question a few things.

Dwight did you try the 29oz balance. Jim still has a 29oz balance reebok and if it's not big difference between it in field and the 28oz endload I might get it. I ordered the 28oz endload but I don't believe it will be in buy the TOC.

Yes, it's legal in SSUSA as it's still a composite with some Titanium additives that don't make it hotter than the Senior bats.
Very durable and hard to break-in but I'm sure you won't have any problems breaking it in. Once broke in they are a better than average composite bat.

Hitman, If this is True - Then I will use it! I will take less POP for CRAZY Durability!!
I am beginning to feel like the Senoirs are being "FLEECED".

When seniors have to purchase 4-5 or more - Non Warranty bats per year @ 200.00 each in order to be competitive.

Thanks

Remeber the goal is COST SAVINGS -

I like to take alot of BP

The Titainum gives enough pop and everlasting durability for BP Purposes!

I agree that most any Senior Bat has good Pop. But as soon as you break it in - It's almost ready to Break!

I will take BP with the Titainum and Play games with my Reebok or Combat

Thanks

My home practice field in Memphis is a baseball field. Unused for years, I keep in clean and I work on the field.

We never have any problems accessing this field. Therefore a LITTLE POP is needed at 365' in the power alleys!! (Smile)
