Really...so just as it happened before I played senior ball when the latest greatest bestest bat comes out in the middle of the winter, the exact same thing is happening in seniors...I get that manufacturers have to sell bats, but if there is a standard for how fast a ball can travel off of a bat, doesn't it reach a point where it can't get any better...oh well, where do i sign up to be put on the pre-pre order list for a bat to replace my latest greatest bestest Reebok one piece Melee that I got last summer....sighhhhh

bkb: I am a straight shooter and have helped a lot of guys (and gals) with their Reebok bat needs. If I can help you, don't hesitate to contact me. I swing the Melee Legend, the Vector-O and the Melee ASA bats.

Bruce, I don't believe you will see a 10 inch barrell in the Reebok line of bats. There was a lot of talk about a 10 inch. Especially if you watch Dave Reed hit it. I just don't think that is going to happen. It should have but it didn't and won't. Just what I know.

Front Of The Line WOW!

I don't think Reebok will come out with a 10 inch this year. 2 piece will be out though.

Who did you hear this from, Cliff Claven, as he was expounding on the 'buffalo theory of bats'? Or did you hear it from someone in a responsible position? Who is 'they'?
Should we presume that you sell the Ambush?

kip: What an idiotic thing to say. This is a thread on Reebok and does not need your uneducated 2 cents.

If your looking for the new big senior bat?

I'd wait for the H&B senior bat. It's being said they will go on the market middle of this year.

In testing the bat I tested lasted over 1,000 swings in 55 degree weather hitting rock hard stadium balls.

The bat even might come with a one year return, they are so durable.

I spoke with Reebok at great length today...the MeLee will continue to be used and offered along with the new 2 piece bat. I believe some parts of a conversation may have been mixed up but at this point the Reeboks will still be available . The new 2 piece should become available during March. if you have any further questions feel free to contact me.

The two piece Reebok will not be available for at least 5 to 6 months if not longer. The bat has not been submitted for testing as of yet. This process will take two to three months, once the bat is approved an order is turned in, the manufacturing process, shipping to the states, warehousing and transport to the retailers will take a minimum of an additional three to four months.

I tested several versions of this two piece design. The final version is the best two piece bat I have ever hit. I rated this bat slightly better than the Melee Legend due to an increased sweet-spot and the test bats were slightly more durable than the typical Legend. Davey Reed tested this bat also.

Tri18 is correct, the Melee Legend is still being produced and will still be manufactured. "The Melee Legend will not be banned".

Reebok will not be making a 10" barrel senior bat.

I hope this clears up the confusion.
