Surf88 should be able to help. Where do you live? There may be a rep that lives close to you.

So why should it make a difference who you order from?

Why are some getting delivery way faster than others?

What happened to first come, first serve?

big cat7,
After reading all the posts on this bat, why would you buy one now, instead of waiting to see if they can get the bugs out ? Just my thought !

Pull, I was thinking that big cat would do better talking to a rep face to face.

Ed,
Here's my problem, if there having so many problems with the Reebok bat, why not wait until you have all the kinks out before selling them, then having customers semd them back and wait even longer to get another one ? Just asking.

#6: There hasn't been that many problems with the Melee. There are tons of guys who are pleased and happy with their bats. Think about how many bats are out there. The reps are hearing stories every day from players about broken Mikens. The point is, sometimes companies experience problems. All of them do and Reebok does not have a lot of them. Do not believe all posts that you read. Some are just not accurate. #6, you make the choice that is right you.Thanks for your post.

Ed,
I must be one of the lucky ones, I swing a ulta red since 2007 and it's stll going strong. Hope I just didn't jinx myself, also I swing a Toxic I got from my buddy Billy Blake and its a sweet bat.......Just my thoughts.

bobby davis of reebok was at the TOC this weekend, and he hand delivered my 28 oz balanced that i ordered in november. it was great that he was willing to take the time and run me down at the banquet on friday. unfortunately, i was unable to use it, due to the cold weather whenever we played. i will make it a point to only use when the temp is above 65.

Webbie,

The players on the Classic's are real good friends of mine and I used to play with then before I turned 60, but winning a TOC with only one other team to play to me just doesn't mean a lot, sorry.

kenny really,are you kidding,its the way all pro sports are done,yeah some have more teams to show up,but it is not open to all teams.these are teams that to have won a tourney to qual for this,not just a pay your money and show up tourney,you had to win something to be able to play in this.we had a very large div(60 AA) with 11 teams,by some people's standards that is not a big tourney,and i don't think anyone else div was bigger.

mad dog,
I am talking about the 55 AA, there were only two teams in that division.........with all the TOC qualifing tournaments and the teams that won a birth in the TOC, there should of been more than just 2 in the 55AA.

I guess I don't understand your logic, you show up to play, you have no control who shows up. You win a TOC qualifier to get there, you win the TOC championship, sounds pretty good to me.

If it only takes two teams to make a tournament,,,,,,each to their own.......I would rather come back and say we were the best in a 8-10-15-20 team tournament than a two team.
Your right, you show up to play in the "largest" tournament of the year and there's you and one other team.what happened to all the other teams who qualified ?
To me a waste of money to get a free ring, if about $15,000.00 for the team to go is free !

#6,you are probably right, you could have stayed home and purchased lots of bud light and got drunk. But on the other hand if you win a TOC, the bud light would have tasted better.

He did. lol

There were a few 'divisions' that were light on teams. I don't think winning with less than 5 is saying much. Trouble is, there are far too many T's with less than that. Sure you get the 5 game in but a full 7 innings for each?
The TOC is 'suppose to be the best of the best, but there were only about half of the teams overall that could even make it there.
Doesn't really mean much against one team.
But it was what it was and they will be again.
Four months or so away from regularly playing hurts every one. And the snow bound teams suffer even more.

yeah the split on cold and hot weather states winning was surprising this year.even the 2nd and 3rd place finishers.
still i would rather see this tourney in nov instead of feb,even our team from texas(so called warm weather state)were real stale from not playing for almost 2 months.also what about the fact a few were 2009 winners and had to scramble to get their roster back together for this one tourney b/c of a 14 month wait.make this tourney the same year you win you TOC bid.also when it is a year later you have teams that play a div down b/c they have been bumped up,but won in the lower div.
