Does this hit like a true 2 pc bat(stealth, mutants)or more like a Demarini the one series 2pc with a 1 pc feel?

It is somewhat in between. I have them in stock now and they aren't as stiff as a one piece but a slight bit stiffer than some other 2 piece bats. Preliminary testing shows them to be good out of the wrapper and starting to perform well at 75-95 swings. They definitely flex...if you are a strong hitter or a guy with faster bat speed be prepared for that. If you need more information on the bat or any senior bat feel free to contact me.

Using my 27 oz. at the Huntsman Senior Games. Hot right out if the wrapper. About 60+ swings so far.

i understand that a bigger stronger person will swing harder and have more bat speed but what effect does this have on a two piece bat.i know they will flex more but is this a good or bad thing?and what type of bat should a person with alot of bat speed use a two piece or one piece?

Big cat, I know most guys with good bat speed and some strength generally prefer a one piece bat. That's not to say that some don't mind the flex in the handle but it can take away from batted ball speeds/distance if the timing isn't just right while flexing the bat. I have been testing the new version and it seems to have an improvement on the durability side of things. If you need one or any senior bat get in touch.

I have hit the Miken bat and it is a winner. Are you getting these Miken's direct from Miken. I heard that some other sources were selling them and rolling them as well as shaving them. I still can not believe that players do that to senior bats. Just curious. If it is straight from Miken then I would be interested in buying one. Thanks in advance. Do the different weights have different balance points as you have stated on other bats. I like a 27 ounce.

Ugly, forgot your other question. Right now the bats come in 26,27,28, and 30 ounce models. They come just as that...not end loaded or balanced,. I think they have done a nice job with balance points on the bats....they don't feel really end loaded nor do they feel especially balanced. They swing true to their advertised weight. Hope this helps...

Hey Mike,
Same as SSUSA basically. I do give a discount if it's a multiple bat order and to my repeat people. How's things?

Big Cat7,
My thought on the 2pc is that swinging harder or faster will not effect the flex of a 2pc.But bad mechanics will be felt much more in the flex If you cast the bat to much instead of going straight to ball you will feel more flex ,same with timing issue or missing sweet spot.

Got to swing this new 2pc Miken along with 2pc Combat yesterday, I do not think there will be any discussion about performance from these two bats, of course don't know about durability both being so new, but we had one of are original bp pitchers out yesterday first time all year due to work he is 5'6 165lbs 48yrs old hitting them far. Both these bats feel different, sound different, so again its whats your flavor and what feels good in your hands.

Hey 5Tools, did you get that chance to hit the Monsta senior bat? If you did how did it play? I hear it is a great bat. Just what I heard! Thanks.

We did hit the Monsta, problem was the bats were demo's no decals, the models they sent to my buddie did not perform like senior bats plus we were having so much fun with the Twilight and new Miken that it did not get much of a look after 10 or so swings from each guy. A new bat now trying to compete with Reebok/Combat/Miken/Demarini/Worth is insane, does anyone have the Bass Crippler senior bat? or the Boombah senior bat? how do they hit?

Boombah info:
Constructed for the 52/275 ball that is used in Senior Slowpitch
Composite, Carbon Fibre and Leather Grip
Approved for SSUSA
Imported

I'd bet the Bass bat being sold on Amazon is a dud like I think the above will be in as much what it was designed for.
