Bat break in time
I got a reebok melee at the end of last year after using and breaking a couple of ultra maxloads and have only put maybe 75 swings on it so far, my question is to anyone else out there using a melee how long did it take for yours to break in? I know its going to vary with each person but im just trying to get an idea of the normal break in time before i pass judgement on which is the better bat

Cat: I have shipped Melee's all over the globe for over 2 years and many players have shared with me that our bats are ready to perform out of the box. I tell players to twist the bat between each hit, do not hit a composite bat below 65 degrees and to be completely frank, I use my Vector for league, BP and cold temperature games. My Melee comes out when it warms up. I've heard players tell me theirs broke in after 50, after 100, etc etc.

I hope this has been of help to you. If I can assist in any way, I have all Reeboks. Thanks, Ed 970-729-3145
