Mike, ouldn't find it on the anaconda website. When will it be up? How is this different from the bat Kevin is selling?

HJ, the bat is the same as the one Kevin is selling. The only difference is the knob at the end of the bat. The one Kevin is selling has a smaller knob. The one Anaconda is selling is the regular standard size knob. There is not supposed to be any difference in the performance of the bat. I have them on sale right now for 189.00 and that includes shipping and handling.

Once again it comes down to the players preference. Small knob versus standard knob. Anyone that is interested give me a call at 330-419-0205 or e-mail me at mike@houseofswing.com.
Thank You.

Mike, I bought my yellow Macenko from you. I also have a Combat Virus enhanced which is getting hotter and hotter and is liked and used by a number of teammates. That has a 10 inch barrel.
Question will the new white senior 10 inch barrel
end loaded, swing like my Virus?
If yes, I'm interested.

Mike, is this the same as the red 10" Combat from a couple years ago?

No it is not the same as the Red 10 Inch Combat. They are similar. The actual design of the barrel size looks the same. They are endloaded like the Red bat. Combat uses a different type of composite material to increase the strength and durability of the bat. Once again they can tweak the composite material to be stronger but still have the great performance like the rest of the Combat Senior line of softball bats. The bat has a stiffer feel but with a soft shell. I hope this helps.

Thanks Mike. My red is really hot right now, so I am expecting breakage soon. This was the second one I owned and had the best of luck with them for pop and durability. The white one will be my next bat for sure. Thanks, David

My 3 week old White Centenarian is as good as any Rebok,Miken or Combat I have ever owned after 2 BP sessions.The first Black Centenarian I purchased has hundreds of swings,some at 40 degree temps and is almost as good with no sign of wear.

Got my white centenarian on tues and took batting practice with it yesterday. ball really jumps of this bat and I agree that it will hit with the best of the senior bats. Off a tee was clearing the fence,300 ft, with the wrapper still on it. Hope it last as long as my blue combat, have over 1500 swings and still hits the ball good.

This is all helpful and thank you. I still would like if any one can compare it to the Combat virus fully loaded which is also a 10 inch barrel. If it swings like the virus I want it. Can anyone compare the feel of the new 10 inch white combat end loaded with the feel of the Reebok Melee Legend end loaded. In my area I just can't get to swing these bats before buying and any info would be appreciated and helpful.

I got 2 of these short barreled bats from combat and the 1st one broke in 50 swings and the 2nd one broke in about 80 swings. SO for me they do not compare to anything that last more that them. They were hot right out of the wrapper, but the jury is still out on them in my opinion.

Sorry to disagree. I had two blue combats and they did not last 100 swings. One did not last 50! I did like the yellow bat.

The White Centenarian (IMO) is the best Combat out there since the yellow MM, Sorry to disagree also, but the Blue MM FLAT OUT SUCKED and I purchased 2 of them...I put about 50 swings on the White Centenarian and it was game ready. I have 2 White Centenarian's the small knob to me seem a little Hotter then the large knob White Centenarian...But I really like both models...The Black Centenarian seems a little stiffer, but really opened up after about 600+ BP swings.

Black has a barrel that is app. 3" longer and the balance point is different. The white combat is a 10" barrel. I have tested both extensively.Alan

Question for the sellers of these bats on this thread.
Given they are no doubt no warranty bats, and some are breaking at the knob, is that considered a DEFECT and therefore exchangeable for another one?

I have never seen a combat break at the knob, but if that did happened and I sold the bat it would be replaced. I have replaced any and all of the bats that have had a defect to date.

Misused or abused bats will not be replaced however.

tattooball,
That is fair. Until this week I haven't seen a bat break in the grip area on any bat.
Barrel area quite a bit. Taper area few.
Thanks.

WoW--Just hit 200 at BP with my new White
Combat---on the first hit, to the fence,(I'm 72) it sounded like a long lost "Wood Bat"--it feels good and hit well all day----now if I can just get Combat to make a 30oz, had to take a 28oz,that would be the only thing better.

I have a 28oz. white combat with 680 swings on it. And it is the best bat I have ever had. I ordered another from Kevin and it took 3 days for it to show up. Which is really nice when you are going out of town to play. I also took Kevin's advice for breaking the bat in. Which he said would help it last longer and so far it has. I would have broken 2 or 3 Mikens by now. The bat is very end loaded so if you know someone who has one ask to look at it. Because you might want to go lighter. And if you want to know how to break the bat in, contact Kevin.

tattoball you told me today on the phone that you did not have any 30 oz. So how is it that you tell Wes that you have some? In case you are wondering I'm the one you told that it would be 2 weeks before I could getr a replacement for my 30 oz that broke.

Your bat was purchased through combat canada and is being replaced by them. The 30 oz bats that are available are through A.D.STARR.

I said I don't have any on hand meaning my bats at the house or I would have sent you one of mine.

I did not know that even though buying through you there was a difference.
