|ASA Bats DeMarini Juggernaut Vs Miken Freak Black Balance|
I started playing in a Coed ASA league. I have borrow a juggernaut and really love it, but it does have a 12inch barrel and sometimes I can't get on with miss hits on the inside part of the bat (not use to 12 inch barrels either). I also found a Miken Freak Black ASA bat. I have never used this bat but it has a 14inch barrel and I can get it in 25oz. My question is would I get fast bat speed with a 12inch barrel and 26oz bat or with a 14inch barrel and 25oz bat or would it be about the same?
Second question, has anybody here used the Miken Freak ASA bat and is it any good? I an stuck between the two bats, because I like the distance I get with the Juggy if I hit it solid, but the Miken 14inch barrel gives me additional hits on miss hits (I can't tell you how many times I got on base with miss hits). The Juggy I could buy and practice more with and get use to the 12 inch barrel so I can get more power, but maybe since I have been using 14inch barrels for years, should I just stick with what I know?

Lots of great questions, let me see if I can help as I have swung and tested both bats extensively. You are really comparing two TOTALLY different bats that felel and swing differently. Both are very good bats and among the top 3-4 ASA bats out there so it going to boil down to which one best suits and feels comfortable to you. The Juggy is a heavy end load with a shorter barrel thus it feels and swings much different than the Freak. The Freak is totally balanced PLUS it has a 14" barrel thus creating a swing weight/feel a world away from the Juggy. I would tell you this....If you have been using and are happy with 14" bats don't change unless you want to experiment for a extended period of adjustment time in Bp with theJuggy. (Or if you just like trying new stuff :) NOTHING wrong with that either) call me anytime and I can go into greater depth with you. I'll be back from being out of the country this coming Saturday. I have limited phone access here.
