Reebok Melee end load question
Happy Holidays!

I am new to senior ball and bats and have a bat question. I recently picked up an Black UltraII as well as slightly used Combat Centenarian and love the feel of both bats and their pop. I have been playing in a single wall league with the "kids" and have always used the Dimarini 26 oz White Steel. I am not a big fan of its end load feel and was wondering how the end load feel of the Reebok 26 oz end load Melee is compared to the White Steel?

Kyphogt: The Melee EL is approximately 1/2 ounce end loaded and the 26 is a very popular model. The new Barrage 26 is a very mild EL and both bats are performance oriented. Reebok also makes the 26 balanced Melee and again, players like that bat.

I have not swung the Steel. If I can be of assistance, please let me know.

Ed, any truth to the rumors that Reebok is going to pull the plug on bat making, or at least manufacturing of the Melee? Thanks.

curve: I keep hearing about this but do not know this to be the case.
