Discussion: New melee

My wish that Suncoast would bring back the one-piece Melee, especially the 12Ē endload and the Reloaded.

Hey G-MAN, I forgot to add, swinging the Melee Max 12Ē 25.5oz feels exactly comparable to the 2015 Miken Senior Ultra2 EL 26oz. 2-piece. Hopefully, that helps you to zero in to the correct bat for your swing.
Swinging a 27oz and I assume thatís an EL. Endloads are very tricky because bat manufacturers could have different weight distribution in the barrel and handle. Thatís why I mentioned the Miken Ultra2 Senior 2-piece bat.

Hey G-man, that Melee Max 12Ē 25.5oz. is the lightest feeling endload I ever experienced. Itís lighter feeling than the Adidas 2-piece EL with the comparable weight but not by much.

Discussion: AT18 bat for 2020 from Worth

Mr. Tanner, My personal preference is a light enough EL bat that I can control the swing and have consistency at the plate as though I was swinging an optimum weighted balanced bat.
If I were to buy a bat from you but I didnít like how it swung, would I have a no hassle or free return ability?

Mr, Tanner
Hopefully, you werenít thinking I was downgrading your bat. I was just adding my two cents about the weight of the Worth AT. Thatís why I used the Adidas bat in my first post for a comparison. There has been a few times when I bought a bat, blindly without swinging and I was disappointed because of the weight or the weight distribution of the bat.
My goal with this forum was to help my fellow senior players to zero in on a bat to their preference because they may not have the money to waste.
BTW in my second BP session with the Worth AT, itís opened up very well. But the great thing about this particular bat, I didnít buy it but my friend did, on his dime sorta speak.

To Gary, Today, another batting practice with the Worth AT. It did well, itís starting to open up.
As to the questioned weight in my earlier post, the bat weighs 25.6oz. I now understand why it swings heavier like a 26oz. EL than as marked 25oz.

Discussion: AT18 bat for 2020 from Worth

garyheifner, in Mr. Tannerís first post to start this thread, he mentions that the Worth AT is endload. My post was just my word how it felt to me. I also added a comparison to an Adidas EL so my fellow senior ball players would understand what they are at times blindly buying without swinging.

JamesLG, considering my Melee Max 12Ē EL that has less than 200 hits and my Adidas 12Ē EL has a whole bunch of laser shots and its number is 1150. I would think 1250 is a decent number with room for the possibility. Lesser the number, the hotter. Both bats on the compression test were in the red zone.
Go to YouTube and find David Velasquezís compression test on several bats to actually understand the test.

I had a compression test on my Melee Max 12Ē. It had about less than 200 hits. It tested at 1250.

Discussion: New Adidas Senior Bats

Youíre in luck JamesLG because I swung both the Adidas Melee 2-piece EL and Melee Max 2-piece EL 12Ē today. There is an ever slight swinging difference between the two with the heavier edge to the Adidas but not by much. When you mention the Orange bat I assume youíre talking about the Adidas EL one-piece 12Ē. I love this bat especially after about 500 hits, it gets really hot. Believe it or not, my Adidas 12Ē EL one-piece 25oz seems to swing heavier than my Melee Max 12Ē EL 25.5oz. but both perform very well.. I hope my info helps and not too late especially since your post date is in October.

Discussion: AT18 bat for 2020 from Worth

I just swung a Worth AT 25oz. today during batting practice. I hate to say it but this bat swings awfully heavy, more like an Adidas 26 or 27oz EL one-piece. When one goes to the lightest EL as possible, one should be able to feel comfortable swinging it. I have no problem swinging a 27oz balanced.

Discussion: ONYX Senior Bats

Iíll just add my two cents about the Onyx 12Ē 25.5oz. for what itís worth. I just got my bat this past week. From what my friends and I noticed this bat swings heavy. It swings heavier than an Adidas 25.5 EL. I usually donít blind order a bat without swinging the bat first. I chanced it and was disappointed. As to performance of the Onyx, I never got a chance to put this bat to a ball because I probably will return it. If you normally and comfortably swing a 26.5oz EL with other bats, you may want to consider dropping an ounce in weight with this bat. Just a word of caution and an opinion.

Discussion: 2017 Miken Platinium Freak

After thinking about it, I will probably sell the Miken because if I mess with the endcap, it may affect the inner-sleeve and its performance. There will probably never be an ASA bat like this again, with all its technology.. I hate to give it up. Perhaps for $400........ I may do an experiment as OZ40 explained.

Discussion: 2017 Miken Platinium Freak

To clarify, I donít want to shave the barrel. I wouldnít think taking a little off the end-load would mark it illegal or dangerous. If the end-load itself was a quarter of an ounce, I would want to reduce it to an eighth of an ounce.

Discussion: 2017 Miken Platinium Freak

I bought a 2017 ASA Miken Platinium Freak 26oz end-load. I thought it would swing like my 2015 Senior Miken Ultra II 26oz end-load. Well, I was wrong. It swung a little heavier than my senior bat. Iím wondering if I can find someone who can shave a little off the end-load. Is it worth it? Will it downgrade the performance of the bat? I donít like choking up on a bat because I like using a knob-cuff with my pinky finger on the bat knob. Other than that, itís a good performing bat.

Lefty, What? After 35 swings, you rate the Worth Wicked XL good.

I have owned both bats, Dudley 26oz EL 13' barrel and Miken 26oz EL 2-piece. The Dudley, without a doubt, swings heavier.
