Discussion: Mikens new Freak Senior bats for 2017

Ok, so we're down to the Miken 2016 Ultra II Black U2BLKM, or the Miken 2017 Freak Platinum MFPTMS. Other than the barrel length difference of a 1/2 inch, is there any other difference?

I also see the Ultra II Black.

Discussion: Mikens new Freak Senior bats for 2017

So, my last Senior bat was a 2012(?) black Centenarian. Great bat. Now it's time for a new bat. I need a 26 with about a .5 oz EL. I am not a power guy by any stretch - mostly singles with the occasional double. I play only on the weekend, so I don't want too long of a break in period. We hit 44/325 balls. I need a very forgiving bat (that's code for I need all the help I can get!)

I see the Freak Platinum. But I also can have a Rocket Launcher (.75 el), Hyper Z, Lighting Legend 2.0, Juggy, or another Centenarian. Or maybe something else I didn't consider?

Living in S. FL means no place to demo bats. So I have to choose based on reviews and opinions.

BTW, does a longer barrel mean a larger sweet spot? Do I lose (or gain) anything by using a longer barrel, rather than a shorter barrel?

Thanks.

Thanks. What about a Combat Centenarian Senior Softball Bat CENSP1 - Fully Loaded?

Discussion: Bat confusion

So, I need a bat that is very forgiving, yet durable with an end or max load. 26 or 27 oz. I see the U2 max load, Reebok Melee legend, and the Combat Ambush. I also found a Combat Twilight TWLSP1-E end load from Anaconda for $160.

I'm not that strong a guy that i going to break a bat i don't think. I usually hit singles, with the occasional double thrown in. I will be 50 in June. I would like a bat the requires little break in time, since i only play on Sunday.

What about a bat from a previous model year?

There are no Softball retailers near me to try these bats either, so i have to take my best shot.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
