Topic: Bats
Discussion: Miken's defective bats

Do Miken U2 bats crack early because it is just the nature of the senior bat, or is it that they are poorly made?
Miken is owned by Jarden which is a monster size company with huge resources for R&D which makes me think it has little to do with both questions.
I think it has to do with this: the bats break because they can! Because we buy a U2, it breaks and then we get right back in line and buy another one. The bottom line is good old fashion greed.
I know we are only talking about bats and not the world peace but it is important to me and I believe in what I have heard that change might be in the air. If true how nice to tell Jarden to keep your bats and may we remember for a long time about this scam of the U2. It will also make me happy to tell that Euro company making senior bats in China to take a hike. I don’t know much about this change but I hope it works.

Discussion: Miken's defective bats

I now play in 60’s and have used the U2 for years. Over that time I have lost count how many I have had and have just accepted the fact they won’t last more than 300 swings or less. My question is for you Miken experts: I have heard that the U2 is made part made in China and finished in the USA so they can put ‘Made in USA’ on it. If this is true it might explain why they break so much. I won’t buy the Reebok because if there is a choice I will buy American and not support a China made product made by a European company. So please tell us if this deal about Miken is real or just a rumor.
