Miken 2 piece
I just purchased the new Miken 2 piece Maxload. I have read a lot of posts on this bat. Some say it is hot right out of the wrapper, some say it takes 100 or more cuts to open up.Some say it is a dud period. Some posts say the durability is good, some not.Some of the most interesting posts say that the bat is "not a home run bat, but a line drive bat". This same post stated that the balls hit with this bat had "great speed through the infield, but died in the outfield". I would think the "dying" effect would be more of a function of the softball rather than the bat. For those of you that have used this bat, what is real and what is urban legend.

Nothing wrong with this bat, just depends on what fits your swing best. Personally like the Red Maxload better but everyone's different . . .

Yes, I like the Red Maxload also. But since they no longer make it,thought I would try the white 2 piece maxload. Also another point of interest, one post said the White Maxload was not as endloaded as the Red and recommended an ounce heavier.
Checked them both out and the balance point is about 3/4 of an inch back on the White. Definitely the White is more end loaded than the Red.
