Pros: The sweet spot in the bat is HUGE!!! ive used it in 5 games now, and it has really started to open up. My teamates have abandoned their bats and are grabbing this one after seeing the work I've been doing.
Pros: first 4 at bats hard line drives
second 4 at bats 2 pop ups batters error 1 hard line drive and 1 dinger (homerun) bat had alot of pop and isnt even broke in yet. gunna be a scary bat when it gets hot and with a few cuts on it its starting to wake up
Cons: needs a clear spot to mark down all the dingers that its gunna hit over the next few years.
Cons: it tings really bad where it almost sounds hollow. Literally makes you not want to hit around other people. Maybe it just still needs to be broke in but it has been awhile and it still sounds bad.
Pros: - quick to break in, less than 50 swings and this thing was HOT
- Huge sweet spot, never felt any vibrations, every hit was solid
- love the end load, purchased the grip and rip it rubber tapered end and the bat felt great to swing
- incredible POP, the ball flies off the bat
Pros: This bat is hott right out of the wrapper.. I play in many leagues including Co-Ed & I will not use this bat during co-ed it is that hot.. I have swung the bat about 60 time now & its becoming my favorite..
Pros: Guys... If you have any hesitancy at all... wipe that nonsense away. This is the bat to best all other bats. For the price, it drives right out of the wrapper (I actually took about 30 swings with the plastic on and shredded it, still had monster pop). Break in time was almost 0. Hittin dingers has never been so fun
Cons: This section needs to be erased from this particular bat review
Pros: I bought this bat yesterday, No BP or break in cuts. Hit two bombs with it today on a 265' field. Bat has a great feel and makes super solid contact. I bat with an overlap grip and couldnt even feel the 1 oz endload. I would buy it again in a heartbeat.
Pros: The bat felt great, all end weight and the look of the bat was nice.
Cons: The bat broke 2 weeks in with only a few people using it. I got 4 games out of it. Also, the grip was coming undone in a very short amount of time. As someone that has purchased dozens of bats in the past 20 years, I am very dissapointed.
Does this come in a balanced weight? If not, can you recommend a bat that is comparable? I'm currently using the Miken Ultra II 100% composite, balanced, 1.21 bpf and they don't make it any longer.
The 2018 Miken Freak 20th Anniversary Balanced USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: MF20BU is going to be the most comparable option to the 2018 Miken DC-41 SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: MDC17U that will feature a balanced swing weight.
New to slow pitch, and I'm having trouble selecting a good bat. Some say to stay away from composite just to be safe, because there is a banned list. Others tell me that I just need to make sure there is an ASA stamp. Could I use this bat, or are all composite bats for Seniors only? Thanks!
Slow Pitch Newby
Composite bats can be used in any league as long as it has the necessary certification stamps. The two main certification stamps are ASA or USSSA, and bats will typically carry one or the other. This 2018 Miken DC-41 Supermax has the USSSA stamp as indicated in the title, so if your league requires that stamp this bat will be legal for use.
Is this ASA approved? If not, is there a ASA model?
The 2018 Miken DC-41 SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: MDC17U is USSSA approved, not approved for play in ASA leagues. The ASA model would be 2018 Miken DC-41 SuperMax ASA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: MDC17A.
When getting a bat from Miken that's a USSSA 28oz Supermax with a full one oz end load, will it swing like a 28 oz or heavier, like a 30 oz? Asking about the 2018 Miken DC41 Supermax USSSA MDC17U cause I really like the 30 oz. Just wondering if the 30 oz is actually a 30 oz or will it swing heavier?
End loaded models will swing heavier, yes. A rough estimate is that a bat would have a swing weight of a model 1 oz heavier if it has a full 1 oz end load, so a 28 oz model would probably swing closer to like a 29 oz.
Which bat is a better investment in the long run, MDC17U or SPSYMU? I'm having a tough time debating on which one to get.
These are both top of the line, high performing USSSA aproved bats with full ounce end loads, so it would really just come down to your preference of one piece vs. two piece design. The 2018 Miken DC-41 SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: MDC17U has been our more popular model between the two, and offers more flex on impact with less vibration. The Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SPSYMU offers half an inch more barrel length, and is much more stiff due to the one piece construction.
I play mostly WSL and ISA leagues. Is this bat good for both?
This 2018 Miken DC-41 SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (MDC17U) does feature ISA certification and would be fine for use in an ISA league. However, I am not sure about the requirements for a bat in a WSL league. I would reach out to the league for an exact explanation on what is required for a softball bat in a WSL league.
I'm 61 years old, 5'7", 156 lbs., and work out four to five days a week. Just getting back into slow pitch. What bat would you recommend? I've been practicing with a DC-41 Supermax that was loaned to me.
It is tough to make a direct recommendation for you, but I would say that if you have enjoyed success with the 2018 Miken DC-41 SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: MDC17U, then that would be a great option for you. The biggest key will be to make sure you have the right certification stamp for your league/tournaments.
I'm getting back into play slow pitch softball after sometime off. I'm 6'5" and a 212 average build. What oz Miken DC 41 would you recommend?
I would recommend going with the 28 oz 2018 Miken DC-41 SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: MDC17U based upon your height and weight.
We use a .52 COR 300 softball, would you recommend this bat for that type of ball?
For that soft of a ball, typically a "harder" ASA bat is the better option, such as the 2018 Miken DC-41 SuperMax ASA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: MDC17A.
I'm interested in this bat but noticed you have a used model. Should I buy new or used?
I would recommend a purchase of the new bat. New bats do cost more, but they come with a full 12 month warranty from the manufacturer, Miken. If you buy the used version of this 2018 Miken DC-41 SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (MDC17U), you will be getting a bat that was inspected by our returns team to decipher if it appears to be in quality condition for use. However, the used bats only have a 14 day used bat guarantee from JustBats. If you purchased a used bat and it broke after the 14 day period from the purchase date, you would have no recourse to get a replacement through JustBats or Miken.
Is this a good bat for NSA with .52/275 balls?
Yes, this bat should show good results and durability if used with a .52/275 softball.
We have a team full of 25-35 year old guys. Only a few big power hitters. Lot of gap and slap hitters. We have the 27 oz. Izzy Psycho and wanted to get 1 more bat in a different weight. What do you recommend?
The 2018 Miken DC-41 SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: MDC17U would certainly be a great option, one of our most popular and highest rated options. However, the 2018 Miken DC-41 SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: MDC17U features a full ounce end load, so it will swing heavier than the Izzy Psycho, and quite a bit heavier if you go with a larger size. The 2018 Miken Freak 23 Maxload USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: MFK23U would offer a swing weight similar to that of the Izzy Psycho, so that may be the better option at a larger size.
I swing a 27 oz bat currently. Should i get a 26 oz in this model?
Since the 2018 Miken DC-41 SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: MDC17U has a full ounce end load, if you wanted the weight of the bats to be the same as your current bat then you would want to get a 26 oz.
What grips are on this bat? I plan on replacing the stock grip with Vulcan and was wondering what size to get.
Most bats, like the 2018 Miken DC-41 SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: MDC17U, feature a grip tape of roughly 1.1 MM in thickness. To confirm the exact size though it may be best to reach out to Miken directly for clarification.
Would this bat be good for Worth ProTac Super Gray Dot balls (C-Lok Compression), those are the balls my league tend to use? .40/375 . What other ASA/USSSA bats would you recommend?
The 2018 Miken DC-41 SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: MDC17U would work well with that type of ball, and is one of the best USSSA options. The Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SPSYMU would be another one to check out if you like a more stiff feeling bat.
Which is a better bat, the USSSA DC-41 or the Freak 23?
Both the Miken DC-41 SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat and the Freak 23 are high performing bats and you really can't go wrong with either one. The DC-41 has a slightly longer barrel.
I have the Miken DC-41 2017 but it just broke last week and I really love this bat and the sensation to hit a rock with. I would like to know which bat from Miken is very similar than the Miken DC-41 2017.
Miken does not have another DC-41 model out at this time. The best comparison from Miken on the market right now would be the Miken Freak Primo 14" SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: MPMOSU. This bat would also feature the same one ounce end-load with a 14 inch barrel length.
