Miken 2020 Johnny Bailey Ultra 12" reviews?
Checking in to see if anybody has any reviews on the 2020 Miken Johnny Bailey 12" half end loads?

12" in general not easy to find yearly. One of the best bats I ever had was a Miken Freak 12" 2015 U-Trip bat that broke in 2017 and was near impossible to replace. That bat was better than many senior bats I've swung.

Any review on the new J.B. version appreciated. I did see the A. Tanner video on-line.

Dave V did one - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ldu8qvJNDQ0

Couple of our guys have then, only have hit them inside due to weather but everyone seems to like them. Seems that durability is there as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dij3qHc5yQ

mck71 thank you!

Anybody used them in games yet? Being in Northeast Ohio we wont get outside for 7/8 weeks or longer yet either. Even then might still be too cool to swing new senior bats in practice.

Don't you guys make or buy bat warmers?

17Black - Suggestion: leave bats and balls inside until ready to hit, that should work even if temps aren't above 55/60 (this is what I do even hitting indoors). Also, I would suggest hitting 52/300 balls, will take longer to break in the bat but will at least give you a good feel of it and then when temps are better, you can use 44/375 to check distance.

Also, Suncoast makes a 12" (new Melee, it's the red one), very nice bat as well.

mck71 yes when we hit indoors we use 52/300 balls and older bats or non senior bats. its just cage hitting to stay in the groove. Some guys might take a dozen or so swings with a newer bat. Every swing on those is precious though.
