Pros: This bat is insane. On my second at bat, I hit an absolute bomb! No doubt, one of the best bats I have ever used. Feels good and looks good, love it!
Cons: The whole team is gonna want to use it :)
Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SPSYMU
Feels almost as good as the Easton S2 not made any more
Love this bat
Pros: This bat is insane. On my second at bat, I hit an absolute bomb! No doubt, one of the best bats I have ever used. Feels good and looks good, love it!
Cons: The whole team is gonna want to use it :)
Pros: Incredible Pop off the wraper, it has consistently worked wonderful. Perfect sound, music to my ear.
Pros: Insane pop out of our live on field bp with the wind blowing in from right field I put 18 of my 32 pitches to the fence in air. And 4 over the left field fence. This bat is 110% legit! The grip is 10/10. The loaded end is 10/10 the one ounce end loaded helped the follow through big time! This is now my bat of choice. Note bat isnt broken in yet.
Cons: A bit stiff.
Pros: This bat has great feel, pop and the maxload end loaded version helps you swing through the strike zone with ease. When you connect with the ball it will go a loooong way!
Cons: It is not as hot out of the wrapper as people will lead you to believe. Take this to a team batting practice session and get them to put 300 swings in and you will be good to go!
Pros: Beautiful bat, feels good bought the 27 oz, expected to feel pop right off the rip, however, we got about 20 swings, still breaking it in, hope it lives up to my expectations!
Cons: Break in time seems longer than some of theses reviews screaming out!
Pros: Great pop and feel of the bat. I am 5'10 180lbs and purchased the 27 oz bat. I have been more of a base hitter in my co-ed league. After hitting once at the cages I took some batting practice at the field and drilled the 300' fence in the air. So far the bat has only been used for less than 100 swings and I can see a major improvement in my distance. I am hoping this season that I can hit my first home run as the bat breaks in more.
Cons: None so far
Pros: this bat is scary. i picked up the 30 ounce (after getting last year's 28 ounce model) and this bat is hot. highly recommend it.
Cons: none yet.
Pros: I was a Worth guy until I got a Miken Sponsor. Picked up a 27oz and hit bombs out the wrapper. I recommended this bat to anyone.
Pros: Like they said .HOT bat right out of the wrapper!!! I have always swung a balance bat and have been playing for twenty plus years. Could not believe the feel of this bat when I just hit a hundred balls with it. Moved up to play some senior ball and did my home work and I KNOW I did the right thing. Awesome bat!!! Can't wait for league to start!!!
Pros: Had the last izzy, got this one in a oz bigger, didn't seem to have that Barrell sound like the last one but once I put a few huts on it, it really started to open up, and was hitting lasers and bombs. Miken does it again!
Cons: Break in period, not completely hot out of the wrapper. Colors are ok...
Pros: The ball feels like it comes of so much harder than any other bat I have swung. Extremely happy with this bat so far!!!
Cons: None so far
Pros: Took out of wrapper went to the field hit around same day as i got it. No hesitations cracked 'em deep nearly every time. I have not owned a bat this nice before. Also feels perfect in the end, i love the way and end loaded bat feels.
Cons: The bat does have a matte finish not a shine finish. I just assumed it would have more of a normal bat finish but this one comes with a matte finish (It looks awesome)
Pros: I was not a big hitter until I got this bat! Now I can hit it 300+. Was using a Miken Freak and this hits way better. Hit great out of the wrapper but gets better everyday!
Cons: Everyone else on my co-ed team wants to hit this bat because it has improved everyone's distance.
Pros: Very good bat straight from the bag and almost injured the other team's third baseman.
Cons: None, at this time.
Pros: This bat is filthy hot and feels great in my hands.
Cons: Large knob but I really dont notice . I use a knob cuff to make up for it.
Pros: This bat scary hot out of the wrapper, like head shaking hot. Crushes all the different core balls with no issue 1oz EL (feels like more than 1oz) gives bat a nice whip. To date very durable, team has 4 of them all with about 500 to 1000 swings, with no issues... other than crushing softballs.
Pros: This bat is extremely hot as far as the sweet spot. I love the colors and design and the ball jumps off immediately out of the wrapper. If you are a balanced bat guy get it an ounce lighter. I was strictly a base hitter but this bat gives you the best of both worlds. The bat swings through the zone with ease and you will get positive results!!! Miken hit a grand slam with this one!
Cons: I wish I had bought this bat sooner!
Pros: First end-loaded bat Ive bought and i do not regret. The ball comes of the bat stupid fast. Every hit is solid, and hard, even if you don't necessarily hit it on the sweet spot. I got the 28 oz. It was a little heavier than i anticipated but im glad i got it.
Pros: Out of the wrapper extremely hot feels great and love it so far getting balanced version soon
Pros: Went with the 27oz - I love the weight and feel of the bat. I can already see a big difference in this bats quality. First BP sesh and I was hitting homers - and I never hit homers! Guys on the team also boppin' them.
Cons: Too early to tell - hope it lasts!
Pros: The ball flies off this bat like no other bat I've hit. My whole team used this bat in a tournament right after I got it and everyone said that it was the hottest bat they've hit. You will not be disappointed in this bat.
Cons: Not enough USSSA where I live :(
Pros: bat is pretty hot out of wrapper an gets better and better. the ball comes of great. just nasty...
Pros: Bought this bat may 8, already sending back for a return because it cracked/busted thru after about about 50 swings. We played 2 games with it, hot out of the wrapper. The next practice, initially i thought it was just the paint chipping off but no. It had cracked all the way through to the core.
Cons: Durability? Guess ill find out when the return comes, hope its just "this" bat cause that a lot of money to spend to only get around 50 swings out of it.
Pros: This bat is just ridiculous. It's hot right out of the wrapper. The first hit I put on it went about 290ft and I barely even swung. The sweet spot on this bat is insane. My friend and I did BP yesterday and we were putting them in the 300ft plus range with no problem. Even if you're not a homerun hitter, you're gonna be putting lasers over the infields head with no problem.
Cons: None so far.
Pros: Haven't had any game action yet but a few of us took it out for some batting practice to break it in and the immediate pop was fantastic! None of us are big guys (all are between 5' 6"-5' 10" and 160-180 lbs) but we were crushing balls over the 280 fence. This is the best bat we've used so far.
Cons: Nothing yet
Pros: Thought I was losing some pop due to age, mid-forties, but decided maybe it was the bat, five year old Demarini One used by the whole team. This bat is as advertised. First hit a laser up the middle, no more than 20 feet off the ground, landed 275, rolled another hundred. Second, 325+ over left field fence. Excellent pop, can't wait for it to break in.
Cons: Feels heavier than it is due to end load, very different feel if you're used to a balance bat. Other team keeps asking umps to check the bat
Pros: This thing is NASTY!! Hottest bat I have ever had in my hands! 3rd swing out of the wrapper, 365 foot SHOT!!! Just keeps getting better!!
Cons: I don't have more than one!!
Pros: This is the best bat I've owned since I had the Miken NRG 600. I went with the 27 oz and hit one out of a 300' field my second at bat. I average a home run about every 5 at bats, so nothing new, but this bat definitely is the best bat I've used since the new USSSA stamp was required a couple years ago. One other guy hit one out the first night with the bat. I should have had a couple more but my pitch selection is one with little patience. I've swung another guy's 28 oz version of this bat, and have hit 5 so far with his bat before getting my 27 oz. Solid bat for sure.
Cons: The flat black finish scratches easily.
Pros: I'm NOT an opp o field hitter as a right hander.. normally a dead pull hitter.. started going yard opp o with in 30 swings.. as for dead pull bombs....just to easy. Hottest bat ever used.
Cons: "Missed" hits end up as popcorn BUT go yard anyway. limited HR leagues equals outs. So really zero cons....
Pros: I have last years model and decided to get this years and WOW. I bought the 30 and the end load is unbelievable. Barrel is extremely heavy so you whip it through the zone that ball is going somewhere. does not matter what compression the ball is this bat is ready for it.
Cons: It's hot but there is still a break in period. It's a single piece so it is stiff out of the wrapper. give it 50 swing, basically one day at practice and it's game ready.
Pros: THIS BAT IS HOTTTTT!!! AND HAS GREAT POP I HIGHLY RECOMEND IT IM ONE HAPPY PLAYER!!!
Cons: NONE AT ALL..
Pros: This bat is legit hitting shots to every part of field feel bad for first pitcher that gets hit from this bat. I don't go up middle on purpose but it happens. This bat is the nicest bat I have ever swung hot out the wrapper.
Cons: a lil bit smaller sweet spot than expected but still nice. Stings hands if hit on inside part of bat but if the ball hots sweet spot guaranteed shots all day long
Pros: hot out of the wrapper. My first time using this bat , i hit the fence, twice! Feels solid when you hit that sweet spot.
Pros: just took the plastic off last night and i couldnt believe the results with this bat. not a home run hitter but that changed, if you can swing the end load and dont find them to heavy you need to buy this bat.
Cons: my entire team used the bat and all love it.
Pros: Best bad I ever owned. Very happy with my bat crushing the ball every time hitting homers bat avg. Has gone up by 90% turning heads every time....strongly recommend this very bat..
Pros: Love this bat!! first time we used it last night brand new outta the box and it had great pop and I even hit a bomber with it 3rd time using it!!
Pros: When I first got this bat, it had amazing pop to it. After about 100 hits, I noticed the end cap was coming off. Plus it didn't sound or feel quite right. Sent it back to Miken. They fixed the end cap. But it doesn't quite feel the same , nor does it have the same pop. Took about 2 weeks to get the fixed bat back.
Pros: Only a few swings too really open it up but honestly hits good right out the wrapper. It is my go too base hit bat along with my teams brand new z-3000! both great bats would deffinately recommend too anyone who is a serious ball player!!
Cons: ....none so far
Pros: Supermax endload is perfect Great pop out of the wrapper Knob is on the smaller side which feels better in the hands Ball exit speed is out of this world thanks to the endload
Cons: So far I have yet to see any cons with this bat.
Pros: Not usually a home run hitter and haven't played in 8 years. First tournament hit 5 home runs on a 300' field. Bat is HOT out of wrapper and hope will get hotter as it breaks in. Recommend to everyone.
Pros: I usually hit with a 32oz but I got the 28oz and it feels like a 32. Its amazing, once I unwrapped it a took a couple swings and sent the ball way out in the outfield, pop is amazing, feels amazing and the swing is amazing. grip is a little uncomfortable without batting gloves, but overall a really good bat and worth the price.
Cons: May give a couple pop flys
Pros: Our team has a 28 oz. The bat was ready to hit right out of the package. I normally swing a 30 oz but this bat was new so I gave it a try. The very first time I hit with it I crushed a line drive over the fence after having a pretty off day with my other bat. Results may vary, but either way this bat is hot and fairly priced. Miken continues to amaze me with their softball bats. I probably won't ever use another brand. If you're having any second thoughts just pull the trigger on this bat. You won't regret it.
Pros: First night in a year, one practice, and our team reached home run limit both games. After the first game I switched bats once we reached the limit because I accidently hit another oppo on a relatively soft swing. Our team has reached HR limit once in five years, til now twice in one night.
Cons: erm...gotta use another bat after HR limit?
Pros: Ball comes off the bat really well!
Cons: It takes about 75 to 100 balls to break in.
Pros: 7 homeruns in first 15 swings, incredible out of box.
Pros: Feels great. Pop is outstanding.
Cons: Heavier than expected
Pros: This bat pops right out of the wrapper and is 100% broken in after 30 hits. When you make contact with the sweet spot the ball will be launched even if you don't have alot of power or experience.
Cons: The sweet spot although of good size is not the entire barrel- about 5" off the barrel curve to 3" off the end of the bat.
Pros: When I first got this bat, it was awesome! I was hitting the 300' fence, on my first at bats. But after about 3 weeks, it didn't feel or sound right, and it lost it's pop. So I sent it back to Miken. They said the Nitrogen gas escaped from the bat. I didn't know they put gas in the bats. So when I got the bat back, it still was not the same. It's still a good bat, but it didn't have that sick POP as it used to.
Pros: This is another 2015 money bat by Miken! I have the 2015 Fallen in a 28 oz but after right and most recently last June left full shoulder reconstruction I am just not strong enough to get the bat around yet so I bought this Izzy Psycho in a 26 oz and now im hitting consistently again and with tons of pop right out of the wrapper! I've hit about 100 balls with it so far and I can't wait to see how much more pop can come off of this bat! 2015 was the year for Miken for sure! I really like the 1oz end load too. i have always been into balanced bats but with that end load you can really throw your hands out there and get them to come around just right. Thanks for continuing to be the go to spot for my batting needs!
Pros: It was semi hot out of the wrapper. Still took about 50 hacks before she was broken in. Grip is awesome on this bat. Usually I have to use a bunch of pine tar but i dont have to worry about that with this bat.
Cons: None so far.
Pros: I play on a co-ed league and have been looking for a bat that I am comfortable with that has some pop to it. I don't hit many out but I do hit a lot into the gaps and I used one for the first time lastnight and I absolutely loved it.
Pros: Bat took no time to break in. Love the way it feels and the whole team uses it because it hits so good.
Cons: The whole team uses it because it hits so good.
Cons: I have had nothing but issues with Miken bats. Had to return my 1st bat back to Miken, they replaced it with this one and not even 5 games in it cracked! Sent it back in, and they will not replace it with no explanation. Never will we deal with Miken again. They said I can still use it, but it won't last long! You think being a big company they would stand by their products.
Pros: Good pop right out of the box gets better the more I hit it.
Cons: Not as hot out of the box as some say but still good.
Pros: Great Feel, good pop and the team loves it!
Pros: Seemed to be hot out of the wrapper at first
Cons: This bat last about 25 swings and then went dead. Sent it to Miken and they said it was good. Has lost all of its pop and miss hits are painful.
Pros: Big Sweet Spot. Like everyone else said, "Hot out the wrapper". Feels like the bat is part of my hands, it's extremely comfortable. The bats design looks crazy. I feel more comfortable at the plate knowing I have this bat in my hands. First 2 weeks using it and I'm hitting shots, high and far. The bat just feels great when the balls flies off.
Cons: Nothing, yet. Hopefully never.
Pros: Looks great. Good pop out of wrapper.
Cons: Not durable. Broke one within 2 months and then the warranty bat broke middle of next season. Only got 6 months of use for it.
Pros: Just got my Miken supermax After talking to Ben from customer service I decided to switch from years of using Louisville slugger TPS bays to this Miken. I immediately took it out to my horse pasture and not even out of the wrapper stated hitting. I love it Iâ€™m hitting like I did a few years ago. Great feel & pop. Itâ€™s a keeper. Oh did I say Iâ€™m 72 & played ball since I was 12
Pros: Just got my Miken supermax After talking to Ben from customer service I decided to switch from years of using Louisville slugger TPS bats to this Miken. I immediately took it out to my horse pasture and not even out of the wrapper stated hitting. I love it Iâ€™m hitting like I did a few years ago. Great feel & pop. Itâ€™s a keeper. Oh did I say Iâ€™m 72 & played ball since I was 12
Cons: Have used it hit many times now & it marks easy.
Pros: Immediate pop, one of the best bats Ive ever swung
Cons: A little pricey but worth the money
Pros: Feels almost as good as the Easton S2 not made any more. Probably more power. Great sweet spot - don't need to kill it to hit doubles, etc.
Cons: Everyone wants to use it in my games!!
Pros: good pop right away
Pros: lots of POP! by the 2nd hitting session it was already dropping bombs. Only got about 50 cuts so far and still no "Miken" rattle. cant wait to see how hot it gets.
Cons: i only have one
Pros: not bad looking design, not bad price i guess
Cons: not very happy how long its taking to get the good break in feel when i hit the ball seems like a very small sweet spot, the bat has some kinda weird vibration sound to it if you dont catch the ball just right
Pros: Better than the reaper that i bought
Cons: no pop no power, maybe its because its a 30 oz. 500 hits still is a dud.
Pros: I hit with this bat for the first time yesterday. Had to hit on a highschool baseball field and put one 10 extra feet over the center field 350ft sign. Very impressed with this bat out of the wrapper. If it gets any hotter as it breaks in I'm sure people will be accusing me of having it shaved.
Cons: as of now none. just hope it lasts for a long time
Pros: This is the second Psycho I've owned, great pop, hot out of the wrapper, whole team uses this bat. 1st one lasted 18 months and then cracked however we still used it in league play and it still produced homeruns and hot line drives!
Pros: great feel with the grip and the end weight, love the matte black color too!
Cons: haven't found any cons yet
Pros: I'm not a power hitter but went 6 for 6 in my first game with this bat. All were solid hits including one 320ft Hr.
Cons: None so far
Pros: I had purchased a 28 oz originally a few years ago. It was used as the primary bat for one of my teams. It hit well and held up well for multiple years. I just got a 27 oz new for my coed team and started using it last week. my first 3 swings with it were hrs. So far I'm 8-10 with is with 6 hr and a double. If you make good contact the ball will fly.
Cons: I don't have anything negative to say. I like the bat.
Pros: great bat
Cons: none yet
Pros: all gpod
Pros: Assume pop like no other. Reminds. Me of my old MIKEN INK just a little hotter. First Grand Slam in last weak tournament. LEFT THE COMPLEX. Enough said!!!!!""""
Cons: Find some
Pros: This bat is just nasty. I had last years model to and I love this one even more. Hit bombs all day long with this bat in BP.
Cons: cant talk my buddies from swinging it.
Got a question about the Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SPSYMU ? Ask our team of experts, and they will respond within 24 hours.Ask A Question OR
I usually use a balanced composite bat in a 26 or 27 ounce. I was wandering what ounce would I want to purchase with this end load. I am 5 ft 9 and weigh 180 and pretty much a small ball hitter
The weight is more of a personal preference for each individual hitter with the Miken Izzy Psycho so i would recommend staying around that 26 or 27 ounces. Although many small ball hitters have more success with more balanced bats.
I think I'm in a league that requires ASA certification. Will this bat work?
This Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) does not have ASA certification and will probably not be allowed for play if having the ASA stamp is absolutely required.
Can you buy this bat balanced instead of end loaded?
You cannot get this specific design in the balanced version unfortunately. However, you can get the 2017 Miken PSYCHO Balanced USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (MPSY1U) in the balanced version. It is composite rather than aluminum like this Psycho through.
I'm 5'9", 170 lbs. Looking for a power bat. What size should I buy?
This Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) will certainly be considered a power bat with its SuperMax end-load. I would recommend the 27 oz or 28 oz weight to maximize the impact of the end-load.
Does the 26 oz feel like a 27 oz because of the end load? im 5'9, 165 and have average bat speed. Would I be risking power if i ordered the 26oz?
Yes, the Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SPSYMU is going to feel about an ounce or an ounce and a half heavier then what it is listed as because of the end load.
I play Mush Ball (16' softball) in Chicago. Do you recommend I purchase this bat for this type of ball?
Typically, a bat with a stiff design and end load are going to be the best options for the mush ball. The Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SPSYMU features that stiff design and end loaded swing weight, which makes it a good option.
What type of ball is recommended when using this bat?
For the best combination of performance and durability, I would suggest using the 40 COR/325 Comp ball -or- the 52 COR/275 Comp ball with this Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU).
I am a 34-year-old female weighing 165, and 5'7". I am currently a swinging an end-loaded bat (26 oz.) and having trouble with my bat speed. I am constantly hitting the ball on the hands of the bat and I have tried everything to adjust. I'm thinking I need to switch to a more balanced bat. Would this bat be a bat you would recommend for me? Or do you have another suggestion of bat you could recommend? And weight, 26 oz.?
The Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SPSYMU is a one-piece composite bat that features a full ounce end-load swing weight design. For someone currently using a 26 ounce end-loaded bat and having difficulty getting the barrel head through the zone this particular bat would not be a good fit. If needing a USSSA slow pitch bat from Miken that will be balanced and in 26 ounces then it would be best to look into the following: 2016 Miken IZZY PSYCHO Balanced USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SYKOBU.
USSSA approved? Also ASA?
This model is approved for USSSA, NSA, and ISA play. It is not approved for ASA.
What year is this Miken Psycho that you are selling for $209? Is the bat pictured the bat that is being sold? Will it still be good to use in 2017?
The Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SPSYMU, that is currently listed, had a release date of 11/2013. The bat that is being sold is the one depicted in the photos and will still be good for use this year and next.
Is this bat a two piece composite bat?
The Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) is a one piece composite bat.
What is the difference between this Izzy Psycho (SPSYMU) and Geno Buck SuperMax ASA (MNATMA)?
The biggest difference between this Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) and the Geno Buck SuperMax ASA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (MNATMA) will be the USSSA certification on this Izzy Psycho and the ASA certification on the Geno Buck model.
Is this bat ASA approved?
This Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) will not be ASA approved.
What is the difference between model SPSYMU and IZZY2M?
The difference between the 2016 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: IZZY2M and the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SPSYMU is going to be the paint scheme. Besides that, these two bats are constructed the same.
Is it NSA stamped?
Yes, this 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) will carry the NSA stamp and be approved for play in NSA leagues.
Which Miken softball bat is best fit for 44 core 325 compression balls? Lets be real, and don't sell me what you like.
None of the currently produced Miken line will be ideal in terms of durability with the .44 core 325 compression ball, as that ball is not the newest sanctioned model and the new bats that are produced like the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) are designed to be up to date with current rules. The .44 core balls are much harder than the more current .52 core balls and can cause the bats to break easily.
Is this bat single wall?
The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) is not a single wall design.
How will this bat perform with a .40/325 ball? What ball brand and/or type would be best for this bat?
The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) would be best used with a .52/300 ball. You could use the .40 COR, but the ball won't have as much flex to it.
Is this bat still approved for USSSA play in 2016?
Yes, the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SPSYMU is still approved for USSSA play in 2016. As long as it has the USSSA stamp it will be approved.
Even if 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho Supermax has the 2012 stamp, is it still good for use in 2015 leagues?
Yes, the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) should be legal for play within USSSA, NSA and ISA certified leagues during the 2015 year.
Does this bat have the 2012 NSA stamp on it?
Yes, the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) has the 2012 NSA stamp.
I love my 10 year old Mizuno Spitfire bat that is 28 ounces. I think this bat is end-loaded, and I have a slower swing. I am female, 5 foot 7 and weigh 125 pounds. I hit opposite field and usually can hit over the infielders for singles and doubles. Would this end-loaded bat be the right bat for me at 28 ounce?
Given that the restrictions on that Mizuno Spitfire would have been a different level at the point that bat was made, most bats on the market today may have a more restricted performance level. The end-loaded feel of the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) would generally be more attractive to a power hitter or stronger hitting player due to the added swing weight.
I have a couple Milken bats that don't have ASA thumb print sticker on them. Is there a way to get them certified?
Unfortunately, the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) is not ASA approved. If the bat does not have the ASA certification stamp it means it is not ASA approved.
I am a 5'10" and 145 lb. girl. I currently use a 27 oz. Synergy right now. What size would you recommend for me in the SuperMax?
For a player of your size, our bat coach would recommend the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) in a 34" 26 oz. model. The Psycho does feature a 2.5 inch longer barrel as well as a more significant end loaded swing weight.
Would this be a good bat for a 44 core 400 compression?
I am not familiar with that type of ball. Most .44 core balls that are used will have a 375 compression rating and they are the old ASA certified balls. There are not any bats currently in production that are specifically designed to hit these balls as most softball regulating bodies have started using softer balls for safety reasons. The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) is a USSSA model which will be best suited for Classic M or Classic M+ models.
I am 5 foot 8 and weigh 210 pounds and am completely fit. Every at bat I hit the fence and hit over it rarely. What size bat would you recommend with my height and weight?
It would ultimately come down to your personal preference for feel. But if you are a stronger player, you may want to go with a heavier model to allow for more mass to act on the ball so I would maybe recommend going with a 28 ounce model of the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU).
I'm 56 yrs old and played major open years ago. I just started back in fall 2014. I busted my Miken Ultra last night. It had less than 500 BP and all. I'm looking for a good bat that will last.
We have had nothing but great reviews on the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU). It is definitely one of the most popular slow pitch softball bats.
I'm 6'2" and 250 playing in an over-50 league. They've changed the balls to .52 cor 275 comp balls. Is this a good bat (or is there a better one) for me? It has to be NSA 2012 certified.
I would look into a bat that is ASA and NSA certified.

I hope this helps!
Which bats are good for the .44 COR 375 Compression balls?
The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) is approved for USSSA play, which uses the Classic M and Classic M Plus balls. The .44 COR 375 Compression balls are best hit with models such as the Easton Synergy CNT Flex Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SCN8) which we no longer have in stock. You could also take a look at older ASA DeMarini J2 models or older Worth 454 ASA models as well.
This is my first time buying a bat! I'm about 5'6'' and 110 lbs. I used a few end load bats last year (z2000, z3000) and I absolutely LOVED them, but I'm looking for a single wall, which is why I am interested in the psycho. I was wondering what weight I should get!
For a player of your size, our bat coach would recommend the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) in a 34" 26 oz. model. The SuperMax end-load on the Psycho is noticeably heavier than the Z-3000.
Does the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho Supermax SPSYMU 30 oz and the 2014 DeMarini Juggernaut 30 oz feel the same weight? I have the 30 oz DeMarini Juggernaut and I was wondering will it feel the same as a 30 oz Psycho or a little more.
The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) has a full ounce end load and will feel overall heavier than the .5 ounce end load on the Juggernaut. They will both weigh in on a scale at 30 oz, but the increase in end load on the Psycho will make it feel heavier overall.
I just found out that my Izzy Psycho 2015 is not in great shape. Is there any way you have any 30 oz. left in stock?
Unfortunately, it looks like we are currently out of stock in the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) in that 34" 30 oz. model.
Will this bat hold up to .44 cor 375 comp balls? Does it hold up in cold weather? I currently swing the red and blue Jeff Hall 120 Mayhem but trying to replace.
The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) will hit the .52 cor ball much better. It will also hold up better versus the .52 cor balls. These bats will not perform up to their highest standards in the colder weather. The .44 cor ball would be better versus some of the older bats from 2012 and prior. The older Easton Salvo's and Worth Mutant 454's are great against the .44 cor balls.
I am 6' 3" and 250 lbs. I have the 2015 ASA balanced Psycho in a 30 oz. Would you recommend me getting the 30 oz. or the 28 oz. IZZY Psycho Supermax. The balanced version seems very light and I was wondering if the Psycho Supermax would be extremely heavy.
The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) would be a great choice. The 28 oz. would work well with the end loaded swing feel. The 30 oz. would not be out of the question, but would definitely feel heavier than your previous bat.
I currently hit (and love) a Miken MV-1 26oz. Would this be a good bat to move to?
The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) will be the most similar model that we carry to the Miken MV-1 Supermax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPMVMU). Both bats feature 14.5 inch barrel length as well as a Super-Max Endload (1 oz.) Both bats will feature high-grade composites as well as vibration transfers through the handle.
I am 6'4", 270 lbs. I am typically the clean up hitter. I am using a 28 oz bat now, but still feel that I sometimes am swinging too fast. I'm afraid a 30 oz bat would cause me to lose power. Should I stay with a 28 oz or move to the heavier 30 oz?
If you have been currently using the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) in the 28 ounce model and have been having success, I would continue to use it instead of switching to the 30 ounce model. However, if you have not been connecting successfully at all due to the bat feeling light, I would recommend a jump to the 30 ounce model.
I am the power hitter on my team and I have been swinging a Stadium 27 oz for the last 3 years. I'm 6'2" and 190. Would the Izzy Psycho have the same feel or would it have more of a end load?
The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) will have an end-load that feels much heavier than the end-load on the 2014 DeMarini Stadium CL22 Slow Pitch Softball Bat (DXST2-V14).
Does this bat require a break in?
Yes, the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax (SPSYMU) will have a better performance after a short break in period of about 150 swings off of a tee or soft toss.
Is it ASA or ISF approved? How is it loaded?
The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax (SPSYMU) is not approved for ASA or ISF. It is only approved for USSSA, NSA, and ISA play. The Izzy Psycho will feature a 1 oz. end load.
What is the hottest most balanced bat?
The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) will not be balanced. It will feel more barrel heavy and end loaded. The 2015 Miken Psycho Balanced USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYBU) would be a much better option.
Can you get this bat balanced and not end loaded?
Yes, the 2015 Miken Psycho Balanced USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYBU) is the model you'd want.
I am 5'9" and 180 lbs. I have pretty good upper body strength and very quick bat speed. I would like to generate more power and was wondering what size and weight might be my best option?
At your size, the 27 oz. 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) would be the ideal choice for you. The SuperMax end loaded feel will help you acquire the power you desire.
Is this bat better than the Ultra 2? Is it legal for senior softball that allows the Ultra 2?
The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) adheres to USSSA standards which are stricter than Senior Softball restrictions. The Miken Ultra II Senior Slow Pitch Softball Bat (MSU2) will have thinner barrel walls and better performance but will not be as durable as the Izzy. The Izzy would be allowed in most Senior Leagues as it does not offer an advantage over Senior bats.
Is this bat better than the Miken DC41?
The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) and the Miken DC 41 would both be great bats. Both are very high performing for Slow Pitch. The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) would be the more popular choice.
I am 6',160 lbs and I am a leadoff hitter with a lot of speed. Right now I use a DeMarini F5 double wall 34/27, but I am hoping to increase my power. Would this bat at 26 or 27 oz be a good fit? Should I be looking at a more balanced bat like the DeMarini?
The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) is an excellent bat for increasing a players power. The stiff one-piece design combined with the full ounce end load are two key features for increasing a players power. Based on your height and weight, we recommend a 27 oz option. The DeMarini F5 is a two-piece hybrid design with a slight end load, so the adjustment to the Izzy will not be a problem.
I have a Triad 3 Maxload which has 0.5 ounces of end load. In 28 ounces, will this bat have similar feel?
Anything listed as a "SuperMax" model with Miken with have a 1 oz. end load. The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) will feel slightly heavier in the 28 oz. weight than that Triad 3 Maxload.
I'm a 5'5", 150 lb. former baseball player. I'm looking for a bat that swings and feels like a baseball bat. I've heard Miken is as close as it gets. How true is this?
Unfortunately, no slow pitch bats will feel like baseball bats. The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) will be a great high performing slow pitch bat. It will have a barrel heavy, end loaded feel to the swing weight. At your size, the 26 oz. model would suit you best.
I am 6', 290 lbs and I have decent power, but not great bat speed. One of the guys on my team just bought the balanced version of this bat. I was wondering if the end loaded bat would help with my bat speed?
End loaded bats, like the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU), are best used by power hitters with great bat speed. If you are looking to increase your bat speed, then a balanced model is going to be better for you. Balanced models swing lighter than end loaded bats and are designed to increase a players bat speed.
Is there a version of this bat that is ASA certified?
Absolutely. Unfortunately, we do not currently have the 2015 Miken Psycho SuperMax ASA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMA) in stock: http://goo.gl/kc77HB.
I am currently looking for a great USSSA bat and have used Psychos in the past and they have been pretty good. I currently use a DeMarini dxone sunday swagger 2012 ed. I am looking to add just a bit more pop any suggestions for USSSA with classic m or possibly c+ balls?
The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax (SPSYMU) has some of the most pop of any USSSA bat. The Psycho is specifically designed for the USSSA balls and should perform very well for you.
Is this a composite bat?
Absolutely. The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) is a one-piece, fully composite model.
If I have a 28 ounce Psycho and it has a 1 ounce end load, does the bat now weigh 29 ounces?
No. The actual weight of the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SPSYMU) would be 28 ounces. The end-loaded 1 ounce would just give it a feel like the bat would have an ounce of weight more towards the barrel.
I'm 5'10" and am more of the lead off guy to hit through gaps. I want something that will give me some extra power in case I am in a situation that calls for a home run. With other bats I usually can one hop the fence if I put everything into my swing. Would this be the bat for me? Should I consider something different?

I am 4 foot 11 and weigh 95 pounds. I am looking to purchase a quality bat. Are there any cons for me using this bat for softball?
The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax (SPSYMU) is a great model and performs extremely well. The only thing I would hesitate about when recommending this bat you you would be the end-loaded design given your size. The more balanced 2015 Miken Psycho Balanced USSSA (SPSYBU) may be a better fit.
I'm not sure if I should order the Miken end-loaded or balanced model. Most of my hits are at the opposite side. Can you please advise?
If you are more of a power hitter, I would probably suggest the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax: (SPSYMU). If you are more of a contact-hitter I would probably suggest going for the balanced model. An even weight distribution will make it a little easier to swing through the zone. However, if you are able to generate power pretty easily, an end-loaded model would fit your game well.
I am 5 foot 9 and weigh 195 pounds. I am a female. What size of bat would you recommend?
The most common weight of the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax (SPSYMU) used by a player of your size would be the 28 ounce version. If you feel that this would be a bit heavy, the 27 ounce size is also commonly used.
Are there any differences between this bat and last year's model of the Izzy Psycho, aside from the look?
There are no major differences between the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax (SPSYMU) and the 2014 model. Both feature 750x HPI technology and a one piece composite design.
I'm 5'8" and weigh 205 lbs. I'm not a power hitter I was wondering if a 26 oz. would improve my distance or would a heavier bat be a better choice? I like the bat speed I get with 26 oz. bats.
The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax (SPSYMU) has a full one ounce end load. We recommend to use the 26 oz. The end loaded designed should help generate enough power for you.
I am 5'11" and weigh 200 pounds. Since I am not a power hitter (home runs or triples) would this bat make up for the loss of power? I would like to hit the ball for distance. Based on my height and weight, would I choose a 28 oz or 30 oz bat?
The 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax (SPSYMU) would be a great bat for someone looking to hit with power. It comes with a full 1 ounce end-load to give it more of a sledgehammer type swing that power hitters like. This bat is one of the more higher performing models available right now. Based on someone of your height and weight, I would recommend a 28oz model.
I'm 5 foot 9 and weigh 220 pounds. I have hit my fair share of homers. What weight of bat should I go with to be more consistent with my bombs, heavier or lighter?
A heavier model of the 2015 Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax (SPSYMU) may benefit your power numbers if you are able to swing it at the same speed. The equation is mass x velocity= power. If you go heavier and swing it at the same speed, your power should increase. If you sacrifice weight to get better bat speed it can achieve the same results but it would have to greatly increase the speed you produce.
I play mixed USSSA softball. I was wondering how this bat would handle the 11" USSSA girls ball? I'm a power hitter. I was also looking at the Psycho balanced bat, not sure if there is a better bat you would suggest for a woman.

For best results with the "mush" balls, you want to use a stiff one-piece bat that is also end loaded. Since both those models feature those specs, they both would do great. The better bat for you will be a matter of preference.
