Pros: First time I used this bat, I took it to the batting cage. OMG let me tell you, this bat is amazing. I hit 60 balls that day. Second time I used it was at practice. I have used endloaded bats before and this one is a true endload. I hit 15 balls at practice and 7 of them went over the fence. I am 6' 235 and I bought the 34" 28oz.
Pros: My team broke this bat out for the first time last night. The reviews were universally positive. I had one HR with it (a 26 oz), and it also felt great on a few line drives.
When I bought this, the video said it was balanced. IT IS DEFINITELY END LOADED. The balance point is farther up than both a Demarini Steel and an Anderson Rocketech 2.0. Fine by me, but keep that in mind.
Pros: I tried this bat at my first practice. In my first round of BP, I used a bat that was balanced and got really good contact. The ball traveled well, but when I brought this out for the second round of BP, the difference was significant. The ball flew off my bat. No comparison. If it takes longer to break in this bat, then I'm only in for better results, but I'm extremely satisfied with the current ones.
Cons: Graphics aren't my style, but if it gives great results, I'd swing a pink glitter bat the next time around.
Pros: This bat has been a "hit" since it's first use. It has become a the go to back for half the team, each already having their own bats. It gives just the right amount of pop for solid base hits and keeps getting better. Some reviews disliked the graphics but I like how it stands out.
Pros: Super Quick Delivery
Love the feel of the bat when I swing
Cons: I was so excited to try this bat when I received it and so wanted to love it. But, I hit with this in practice and in a game and just didn't have any luck with it. The old bat I had been hitting with had more pop and distance. I continued to hit with it thinking maybe I just had to break it in/get used to it, but it didn't happen. Other women on our team also used it also...same result. I'm back to using my old bat and looking for a new bat; very disappointing.

You say it's a two piece. I'm assuming handle and barrel. Is there any composite on this bat at all? Or is it two piece aluminum?

This 2018 Miken Vicious ASA / USSSA End-Loaded Slow Pitch Softball Bat (MPV18T) is actually listed as a multi-walled bat. However, multi-wall and double-wall are considered synonymous terms.
Why is this bat so much cheaper than the rest of the Mikenâ€™s?
Asked by Big Nasty
The main reason that the 2018 Miken Vicious ASA / USSSA End-Loaded Slow Pitch Softball Bat: MPV18T has a lower listed price than the majority of the other Miken slow pitch bats is because it is made with alloy, a cheaper material to manufacture, instead of the more expensive option of composite.
What temps can you use bat in?

Does the 26 oz and the 28 oz have the same hitting quality? I have a ultimate weapon in 26 oz and 31 oz and it seems as if the 31 oz hits better and even has a better sound when hit.

I have been given an old Miken bat. It's a Halo 2004, model # MPH9. Where is the sweet spot on this bat?
Asked by Twig
Unfortunately we aren't too familiar with bats that old, but as with any bat the sweet spot typically starts about .5-1" from the endcap and is normally anywhere from 10-14" in length for slow pitch bats.
