I can wait as they become more scarce..the price will go up,,I have found this bat to hit with a larger sweet spot than the ultras and be more durable too..also have a 28 that I d hate to part with but will if the price is right

More scarce? they are already very hard to find, almost impossible. They are not harder to find then the ASA stamped Ultra from 2004, and they only go for about 210-225. Some people say that's the best senior bat ever made. I swing the yellow combat. I have two, both 26. One is a ten inch barrel the other is 13 inches. i hit the grey combat and the new ambush just as well as the yellow. So i'm selling the two yellow combats. 215 shipped.......

Personally I think a better answer for a bat at 400 is two other new bats, not almost new...lol. What is almost anyway...wrapper on but was hit with, 10 hits, 2 dozen, but hair line fractures in the 'paint', who the hell knows ones definition.

It is too the american way. Quite frankly I do not blame who in any case.
I have a couple in wrapper I'd like to sell as well but usually wait until I see someone looking for that particular bad and maybe weight. They'd be up there also, maybe more.
Hope you sell it.

had a miken break in less then 1 month and a reebok break in 1/2 a season..we used a differant yellow combat in the fall as a team bat and it lasted in a doubleheader sun league for 20 fall games and about 12 more games in spring..and at least 9 or 10 guys used it every at bat

Please tell me that this fool is not paying $300 for senior bat. Dude I know that Yellow combat might last a little longer but at the end of the day is a senior bat. Combat has what 6 models and do you really think that they are all that different when all of them are priced about the same. Hey I have a rock that sings and give you luck with the ladies...sell price $100.00. e-mail me @ afoolishard2find@Stupidis.whatstupiddoes. LOL

Wagon hope you make some money.

Hey Phil: No yellow Combat Mike Macenko bat has sold for over $175.00 on ebay since before June, 2011...Just wondering if you are taking your meds faithfully because the hallucinations are begining to cloud reality for you. Bat sold originally for $199.95 so unless your doctor has medicated it too, you are way out in space.

Let me get this straight...

buying a used, no warranty bat at the ridiculous price of $375 = winning multiple championships.


I DON'T THINK SO!!!

Maybe that "Magic Bat" will turn to gold so the owner can buy championships!

Rip off priced used bat...

Automatic winning of championships...

Not really sure why everyone is so up tight about what this guy is ASKING for his bat.Hes not making anyone buy it for that price, just offering it for sale.Looks like Lee Lee was interested in it until everyone bashed him for asking that much.I could care less what he wants for it.I have a 57 CHEVY that I wouldnt take sticker price for. I also am not interested in his bat for $375. but someone just mite be.

If this guy really wants to sell the "Greatest Bat Ever Made" then why such a ridiculous price?

Either he really believes it's worth it and has no clue about the bats value.

or

he hopes to find some poor sap to rip off.

Are you the type to just stand by and watch a rip off?

One mans junk is another mans treasure. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Old enough to know better but too young to resist! Every person on this board is old enough to vote therefore are old enough to make their own decisions as to how they spend their own money..Like I said before, I wouldnt give that for his bat but thats just opinion. ALSO, what would you call $700.00 entry fees?Do you still play at that price? Do you fly to tournaments? If so, do you pay $50.00 extra for your ball bag to fly? Is that a rip off? Just saying that just about everything we do to play senior ball is expensive so where do you draw the line as to what really is TOO MUCH? JMO

very true tg69..and what is the thing most seniors pay all this money to do? HIT!!! hitting is about 80 percent mental so if you are real confident with a certain bat..you will hit better..a 100 extra or so is not too much for this psychological and also I believe a technolocial advantage is it?

Okay guys I guess I need to say something. First, I didn't buy the bat, secondly I would never paid $375.00 for a used Combat. Yes I was interested in the bat so I wanted to talk to the seller which I did. And lastly I ended up buying a used yellow MM combat for $40.00. I do want to thank all of you that were looking out for me but I am always looking to buy yellow combats it is the bat of choice for me and yes I already have at least 10 senior bats presently, from Demar's, Miken's, Reebok's and yes 4 combats. Thanks guys and I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season.

Now why in world would anybody pay that much for a bat that they could only use in NSA and for only until the 2015 season. I guess you could use it in seniors but why do that when you can just buy a senior bat for less than $200.00.

has all the answers!

And still hasn't found anybody dumb enough to buy the bat at his price!

Is it hard to figure out why he hasn't sold it yet?

He will be able to sell the bat when reality sets in and his asking price comes down enough.
