Update: Reebok Barrage
Hey Guys,
here are the latest updates on the Reebok Barrage. After more testing and experience, the bat is definitely a winner. It wins the hottest bat out of the wrapper Award for 2013...after 15-25 swings it will reach performance levels that you are used to from the Reebok MeLee when the MeLee is FULLY broken in. We have had several early failures on the bat. After looking into it in depth with Reebok we feel there is a slight resin issue in some of the first bats produced. Not to worry...if you got one and it fails early Reebok has told me they will replace those right away. I have some of the new batch of 26 and 27 models in now and will be receiving the 28 and 29 ounce versions this week. Reebok is only releasing a small amount of these right now so get with me soon if you want to get some before the beginning of the year. They are definitely a nice addition to your bat bag. From myself and Team 1 Sports...Happy Thanksgiving to each of you and your families. I am thankful for each of you and Senior Softball.

Thanks for the update & responding to my text today. The bat I returned to Reebok was definitely the hottest bat, from the get go, that I have ever hit. I got one of the first Barrages & was hitting home runs within the first 15 swings. I'm looking forward to only carrying the Barrage in my bat bag for next year. Thanks for you help getting my broken Barrage replaced.

I have to agree with Mark on the bat being hot early . Look forward to getting relacement bat and seeing what it is like after a couple of hundred hits .

Most of the early failures came from ; 3G-FTC--55660
Although, there could be a few more and....not all in that batch were bad,. In fact, several guys have had over 200 hits so far with reports of "one of the best I've ever swung"
The bottom line...Reebok is " stepping up to the plate" and taking care of any early failures right now. O, my....that's a bad pun!
Hit em hard,
