Discussion: Mikens 2017 USSSA bat lineup

Hi guys,
I have been busy hitting and testing Mikens new USSSA bats for 2017 recently. They are lights out good, literally! Many balls into the lights and over the lights later means Mikens engineers have perfected and tuned these bats to become the best 3 USSSA bats I have ever swung. They come in 3 different configurations so pick the model that suits you best and you will be thrilled. As always, if you need help selecting the one that fits you best just give me a call and I'll help you out. I do have videos on Facebook and on YouTube on all 3 of these and I just released one of me hitting the Psycho. Look them up or just email me and I'll send them to you.
1. Miken Psycho: 14" barrel with 1/2 ounce endload makes this bat swing exactly the same as Mikens Ultra 2 Black Maxload. (Black/green model) Love, love it!
2. Miken DC41: 14" barrel with a full one ounce endload which swings just like the Big Cat Senior bat.
3. Miken Freak30 is a 12.5" barrel with a 1/2 ounce endload that swings just like the Patriot senior bat.

If you really like your Dudley 13" el or Adidas el you will most likely love the Psycho. If you like Dudleys 12" barrel senior bat you will love the Freak30.

Balanced versions will be coming after the first of the year and each of these bats comes with a ONE YEAR WARRANTY. They are so good upon break in that they aren't far off senior bat performance.
I'll have some exciting Miken Senior news in the next 2 weeks or so so stay tuned.....!

Merry Christmas !

Discussion: When did bats start getting END CAPS ?

Jim,
Louisville Slugger started the TPS model that was rolled over and had urethane end loads. It was dark blue with silver and red writing on it. The visible end plug material was red. On my bats and other players under contract with Louisville bats, the visible plug material was black. Then they came out with the silver/black Rich Plant model that had a red plastic end cap. This is 1989/90 I believe. Easton then came out with the SX1 which was silver/black with a semi clear end cap on it with urethane/bb shot in it for end loads. Bombat did make some models slightly ahead of these with end plugs/caps as did Steeles. I was testing equipment for them back then and both of these were actually produced for them at American Modern Metals. I know Mike Macenko can also give you insight to this as he was also doing research and testing with Steeles back then.

Discussion: Fall Training Camp for Senior players

Today we closed out our fall training camp. We had awesome weather and a FANTASTIC group of dedicated guys and a lady who put in a great effort and who our staff saw improve dramatically. As a coach, it makes me feel really good to see the successes of each attendee out on the ball field. Our staff received a couple requests to bring out program on the road in the spring of 2017 to senior leagues across the country. If your senior league is interested in us coming to your area in 2017 to put on a training camp for your players feel free to contact me. After meeting with my coaching staff today we have decided to accept the invitation and travel to various locations in the coming year.

Discussion: Senior Softballs-44/375

Captain,
I worked with Trump and have a fantastic 44/375 ball that actually DOES perform well even in extreme heat situations. We have similar weather here in South Florida and the ball not only performs well but keeps that performance for hundreds of hits. If you would like information on it give me a call.

I have received a few calls and just wanted to let you guys know the camp is on and we have spots available. We did have several guys that had to cancel due to hurricane damages at their homes but the camp is on at this point. If you want to get a lot of individual instruction in a small group setting, this camp is just for you. Call me at 561-718-7504 to register.

Discussion: Pitching screen

Shoot me an email or call me and I can send you pictures of it. It's easy to put up and take down. I just rest my BP ball bag on top of one of the legs and against the net and it works just fine.

Discussion: Pitching screen

The Powernet I Protection screen is the one I have been testing. It is slightly narrower and slightly higher than the Pitch Safe model that is widely used. The Pitch Safe is definitely more heavy duty but after hundreds and hundreds of swings this Powernet seems to be holding its own. If it last HALF the life of a Pitch Safe and its a QUARTER or less of the price (80.00) it appears to me that it's worth considering for a player wanting a lightweight ez to use BP screen. Now safety is affordable which to me is a win- win for us players.

Discussion: Pitching screen

I haven't posted a lot about the topic until I finished trying this out but I have to say for around $80, these Powernet screens are hard to beat. They are lighter weight than the Pitch safe and some other brands but they cost 1/4th. I have found it to be durable enough to withstand round after round of Bp so I brought them in to my repertoire. They come with pins to secure them not the ground so they aren't knocked or blown over but I have found it just as easy to prop the Bp ball bag against the net and it works just fine. The set up is simple and quick and it takes down easily and is stored in a carry bag that comes with it. The entire screen and frame weighs just under 10 pounds so it stores simply in your trunk and is taken out and onto the field easily. If you have questions , want to see pictures, or need more information feel free to call me.

Hail,
Call me because it sounds like you need a bat with a different balance point than what you are swinging.

We made out pretty good. Luckily, the storm slightly veered off the coast and the stronger winds didn't come onshore here . I had a lot of debris and one tree blown down that missed my house by 18 inches. Looking forward to the camp which is only a month away. Registration is open so get with me and come on down for a few days of fun and sun in Vero Beach!

Discussion: Dudley 2.0

FOFO,
This isn't uncommon in composite bats although a vast majority of the new 2.0 Dudley are breaking in quickly. There are always a few stubborn ones in the bunch as I found yesterday with another manufacturers bat. I have broken in over 150 of these and this one....made my back hurt! But....about an extra 115 swings got me to what we are all looking for, a very high performing senior bat. So.... Squeeze that lemon of yours a bit harder and longer and I'm sure you will get...lemonade. Good luck!
