Miken Freak

I need some help i bought a Miken Freak 98 on of craigs list a few months ago practically brand new. I broke it last night in a softball game, but since i do not have a reciept i cannot warranty it. Does anyone have any suggestions or a reciept i can borrow to warranty it. Maybe someone has or works for a sporting goods store that i can buy one from and return it so i have a reciept. any thought please let me know.

You're a hoss. BTW, overall, how do you like the bat besides it breaking? I have a Synergy 2 that's about to be no good at the end of the year and I'm needing something new.

aside from breaking it i loved the bat it is a bad ass bat. I would suggest it to anyone, the freak only comes with a one year warranty and wont do anything without a reciept

I just bought this bat for USSSA play. I did a lot of research and this came out on top for me...pop as good as Miken Freak and huge 14"(barrel) sweet spot plus supposed to be really durable.

Do you want a brand new 28oz Synergy 2?
I won 2 auctions on Ebay and decided to keep the 30oz. The 28oz still has the wrapper on it but no receipt.

get someone to get you a reciept, go to a little sports store and slip them some money to give you a reciept.

The Synergy 2 won't be any good in the 2 leagues I play in after the end of this year, but thanks.

I play in USSSA. So will my bat not be good after this year either?

The Syn2 will be banned in ASA, starting Jan 1, 2008. It'll still be legal for use in Utrip/NSA/ISA play.

Warranty returns have to go back to the manufacturer, retailers won't take them.

The Mayhem is a good bat, I have 2, one for Utrip, one for ASA.

Mach1Nut, if you want to sell that Syn2, I'd go to Softballfans.com/forums and post it up. I don't know how much you paid for it, but since they're being banned the prices are taking a hit, I'd try quick.

One of the USSSA umps told me that my Synergy 2 is no good after this year and that the Miken freak is no good either, since the grandfather rule is going to be up.

That's only in ASA play. If you doubt that it's legal in Utrip, ask your league/park director. I can find the rule change for ASA if you want, and show you the Utrip banned bat list.
