Reebok Replacement bats
Hi Guys,

I just received word that Reebok mailed the replacement bats out yesterday on the bats that they deemed to have experienced a manufacture's defect. This was performed on a case by case basis. To qualify for a replacement bat as the result of an early barrel failure, the bat has to have 100 swings or less on it.

I understand Reebok has been slow to get the replacement bats out and for that I apologize. The demand for the Reebok Melee Legend has been outstanding and the stock has been very limited. Reebok has finally caught up enough to get these replacement bats out.

Of course with any program some people have attempted to take advantage of this program. My understanding is that bats which appear to have more than 100 swing +/- have been rejected for replacement.

Approximately 6% of the bats had an outer layer of composite which was not wrapped, or pulled in tight enough. Reebok was able to identify the problem and have implemented the solution, which simply required the bat be constructed to specs. Therefore, no changes are being made to the bat, it is simply being produced correctly now.

In addition, Reebok determined how to detect if a bat has this condition and the newest shipment of bats, which is arriving to the states now, has been checked and any potential defective bats have been pulled from this shipment.

Again, if you experienced an early bat failure on a Reebok Melee Legend bat, I want to apologize for your inconvenience. You should have your replacement bat arriving soon.

I hope this helps,
Curt Hollis
