Discussion: miken Freak Black ASA maxload 2016

Yup, ASA senior league,and yes, we are using the "44" ball. Have to use ASA stamped bats. Looks like the Miken Freak Black Maxload for me, especially if you can hit both balls with it!! Thanks everyone.

Thanks everyone. Wondered how they came to that conclusion. Last question: Can you damage a bat that's designed to hit "52" by hitting "44"? (And by the way, snowing here again in New England, 5 to 10 inches! No early practice for now!)

I have been told that certain bats are better to use with the "52" ball. Our Ct. senior leagues will only let us use bats that are "ASA" certified, and must contain the ASA stamp on the bat. We are not allowed to use bats without that designation, such as senior bats, (SSUSA, ISA, stamps, etc,) I know of several payers here in Ct. that bought a bat, (ASA stamp), based on the fact that they thought they were going to be using a '52" ball. The bat, in several instances, broke after about 150 swings when hitting the "44"core ball. So I'm just wondering are certain bats designed to hit certain balls or can you use the above mentioned Miken Freak Black Maxload "ASA" 2016 bat, ( which I am considering purchasing), to hit "44" core ball, which I believe our leagues are staying with for at least this year. (Example: some "experts" up here tell me the Miken Freak Platinum, ASA stamp, should only be used on "52" core balls). Thanks again for the help, and helping me negotiate through this very confusing subject.

Just a little help here. I have read that certain bats are better at hitting the "52"coreball. Our leagues here in Ct. might be going to this ball. The question I have is can you hit the "44" ball with this bat? Hate to purchase the wrong bat. League still has not decided which ball to use. Which bat is good for the "52" ball and which one for the "44" ball? Thanks in advance, never got bad advice on this Web Site.

Thanks everyone. But my league tells me we can't use the Demarini Steel. Ant thoughts on the Anderson Flex?

Thinking about joining a senior league where they only allow single wall bats. Haven't used one in years! What's the best single wall ASA bat for distance? Thanks for any help.

Thanks Alan. Heard up here in New England that many senior leagues are going with the "52" ball next year. Same where you are? Will you be in Fort Meyers in November? Miken's my make, can never go wrong. I'll be calling soon. Thanks for the help.

Have two 2016 Miken Border Bats. I see where they have come out with a new one. Play ASA senior league and now they are using the "52" ball. Do the new Border Bats give you any better distance with this ball than the older ones? If not, which bat does? Thanks.
