I am 5'8, 160 lbs and I am a good contact hitter. I am looking for a bat that will put a little more power behind my swing. What oz and bat would you recommend?

The 2013 Miken Ultra ASA: SOULTA Slow Pitch is a balanced bat and best for a hitter than needs to increase their bat speed. The 2014 Miken Ultra 750X Maxload ASA: SULTMA is an end loaded bat and would be better for a player looking to increase their power. We recommend the 34" 26 oz. Miken Ultra 750X Maxload.

Is the ideal weather to use the bat under 55 degrees or above? The last question said use it below 55 degrees. Also my end cap is different from the picture above. It is a 2013, so why is that?

We do not recommend using this bat below 55 degrees because the ball becomes more dense and may damage the bat. Sometimes manufacturer's may make small changes such as end cap or color changes and this could be the reason yours is different.

What is the difference in ASA and USSSA rated? Play Senior Softball.

Previously ASA had stricter guidelines for testing than USSSA. However the new ASA testing has changed the way bats are tested and perform. The 2013 Miken Ultra ASA: SOULTA Slow Pitch was tested using new ASA standards.

I just bought one, it has about 200 hits on it. I don't feel the power in the bat. I was wondering what balls are best to use for this bat?

The 2013 Miken Ultra ASA: SOULTA Slow Pitch bat is best to use against the softer compression balls. Like the 50 COR 300 COMP or 52 COR 300 COMP. All newly stamped ASA and USSSA bats will be.

Is this bat considered single wall?

The terms "single-wall" and "double-wall" only apply to alloy bats. The 2013 Miken Ultra ASA: SOULTA is a composite bat composed of multiple layers of carbon fibers and resins, but will not be classified as single-wall or double-wall as it is a composite bat.

I'm 6'2" and 250 lbs with fairly good bat speed. Would you recommend a 28 oz. or 30 oz.?

I would recommend the 2013 Miken Ultra ASA: SOULTA Slow Pitch in a 30 oz. for a player your size. We recommend you choose a weight that you have used in the past and are comfortable with.

Dose the 2013 Miken Ultra ASA: Soulta need to be broke in to get better performance out if the bat?

The Miken Ultra does come out of the wrapper with good pop, but it does heat up even more after about 200-300 hits to help break up the material.

We play in an ASA league but the bats must be 1.2 BPF. Will this bat be legal in this league?

The 2013 Miken Ultra ASA: SOULTA Slow Pitch is only ASA certified. If your league requires 1.20 BPF bats, it sounds like they require USSSA certified bats. I would check with a league official on the legality of bats with only the ASA certification.

The bats in our 55+ ASA league must have the 2004 ASA stamp on them, can this bat be used in our league, and if not which bat models carry the above stamp?

The 2013 Miken Ultra ASA: SOULTA has the new ASA stamp, but does not have the 2004 ASA stamp and would be illegal in your specific league. The bats we have that still carry the old 2004 ASA stamp are: Louisville Slugger TPS Warrior: SB12W, Anderson NanoTek SP Omega: NANOSPO, 2013 Easton Hammer: SP13HM, 2013 Easton Cyclone: SP13CY, 2013 Easton Reflex: SP13RX, 2013 RIP-IT Prototype: S13DA, 2013 Louisville Slugger TPS Z-2000 Balanced ASA: SB13ZAB, and 2013 Louisville Slugger TPS Z-2000 End Load ASA: SB13ZAE

How will this bat handle hitting .44/375 compression balls if it is meant for the softer .52/300 compression balls? Will it not last as long? Will the balls come off the bat as well as other bats designed for the .44/375?

The 2013 Miken Ultra ASA: SOULTA slow pitch bat has the new ASA stamp and is designed to hit the lower compression (50 or 52 COR) softballs. Hitting the higher compression balls with this bat will make it more susceptible to cracking.

I'm having issues with the new 2013 Ultra ASA, the end cap keeps cracking and breaking off. It's now been replaced twice, I just received my third replacement but I did notice the end cap was different, it appears Miken put the older style end cap back on this one. Both bats were brand new only two weeks old before breaking, absolutely no modifications were done to both bats, not even rolled. Have you heard of this issue or am I the only one experiencing this?

Since the 2013 Mike Ultra was released, we have only received a few reports of cracked endcaps. Based on the number of units sold, this is a very small number and so far, it has displayed above average durability.

How long will this bat be legal? I went out and purchased the Ultra 2 when it came out, it was legal for one season. Will this bat do the same thing?

I asked a question back on Dec 4th abut this bat and the new standard and understood that under the new ASA standard the bats would be hotter. I got the new Miken Ultra and the Easton S2 and took them to our city's bat tester and both passed the compression tester that was used to test bats last year. Why are the new bats passing the same compression test as the old bats? (Last year's Synergy was hotter on this test than the new Ultra.)

Unfortunately, we have no say in the testing of bats and do not have the resources to conduct compression tests. I recommend contacting ASA themselves at (405) 424-5266.

I have noticed that the new Miken Ultra is only approved for ASA. (same for the new Worths) If it complies with the new 100 MPH standard, why did the other governing bodies i.e. NSA, USSSA, SSUSA, ISA not approve it? The new Eastons are approved by the other Associations.

The testing has changed for both ASA and USSSA. Please follow this link for a detailed explanation of the testing and certifications done by USSSA and ASA; http://www.justbats.com/blog/index.php/3226/asa-rule-update/.

I believe I saw this bat at the 2012 Winter Nationals and the sales rep said this is about 7 - 8 % less than an Ultra II in performance.....is that true? If true that would be one of the best ASA bats on the market and how would it rate against the original (100) mile an hour Freak?

Unfortunately, we do not have any hard information or statistics about the specific performance levels of new ASA bats. With questions as detailed as that, I recommend contacting Miken at 1-877-807-5291.

I have a Super Freak that is a 28oz. Mid-Loaded if I get a 30oz. balanced will it feel and swing about the same?

The 2013 Miken Ultra ASA: SOULTA Slow Pitch bat will be a One-Piece 100% Composite design. This bat will have a Balanced Swing Weight. If the previous bat you were using had any End Loaded feel at all, you will notice a difference in the way it swings. If you are trying to go up in weight to off set the balanced feel of this 2013 Ultra, I think you will still feel that it is truly balanced. If you are looking for an End Loaded bat, also look at the 2013 ASA Miken Triad Maxload: STRIMA Slow Pitch.
