My Macenko has about 250 or so hits on it and still feels like new, I loose about 20' when I hit with it compared to my U2. My team mate hits his Macenko 20 or 30 feet further then mine, he has 500 or 600 hits on his.
My feeling is 600 hits on the Combat, maybe 300 on the U2 before breaking. The extra hits may be worth the 20', especially if the -20' are on the other side of the fence.

I have both- same weight 28oz. I believe its more the ball than anything else. When the temps. are cooler and thus the balls are "harder" I like using the combat, I feel the this bat is a little softer and drives the denser ball better. In turn the Ultra being,IMO, harder drives a "softer" ball better.
I have hit a few tape measures with both.
