Bruce,

Do you think the Crush will be a durable bat for someone who is mostly a base hitter?

2) MIKEN'S FREAK
3) WORTH'S 100 PLUS WICKED
3) EASTON'S 100 PLUS SYNERGY

Thats why the Crush is number two. I am trying not to use it much. Its funny, it will get a wave and then, after hitting with it some more, the wave will disappear. I would think that a base hitter wouldn't dent it. I found out recently from the Mohr board that I have a team bat, denoted by the silver "Serious Performance" on the taper. But, I have heard that the Crush in general is lacking in durability.

Miken U2 for SSUSA. I will also be purchasing a Miken Freak and a 2004 Demarini 375. I have read several reviews on the 375 and it is supposed to be awesome on low to mid compression balls. At $220 it could be this years sleeper.

Bruce-
I'll concur with your assessment of the Crush. We hit a brand new one this past weekend. There were five of us - about 75 swings each on the Crush. We were using the old Bob Mitchell yellow 47 core - 525 compression balls. These balls are two and three years old so they are not hard. BUT we still dented the bat and had a couple of what may have been waves but we thought they were cracks.

My appraisal: I like the bat but for $200 and suspect durability, I may have to look elsewhere.

Check the upper right corner of this page. It says: "2004 bat policy
Senior Softball-USA allows use of bats meeting the 1.20 bpf, including the Miken II, Easton Synergy and all other bats meeting the 1.20 bpf."
Does the Freak meet the 1.20 bpf?

Quick note on the Freak. I have a 34/28. After a small breakin period 100 swings I see no big dropoff in distance from the U2 when you hit the sweet spot. The biggest difference is size of the sweetspot. A lot of dying quails if you don't hit it right.

1. Miken Ultra II, you can almost roll your socks up and hit'em 300+ feet with this bat.
2. Easton Synergy, durability is a question
3. Wicked Composite, But I personally feel the "sweet spot" is too small
4. PST, also small sweet spot but a great bat

I play for the Matador Club out of Florida and I will be using the PST when my Miken II and Synergy are not allowed.
