Is the feel of the swing different from a balanced to a end loaded? If so is it a huge difference?
Balanced bats and end loaded bats will feel differently during the swing. End loaded bats have what's sometimes termed as a "sledgehammer" type feel to them, in that they take a bit more to get going, but give very good whip through the hitting zone with that end load. Balanced bats are great for max bat speed throughout the swing, and are easier to start the swing with than an end load. The difference between the two depends on the amount of end load, which this bat only has a .5oz end load.

I'm still bouncing back and forth from the Max Load and the Balanced bat. What are the pros and cons of each?
When comparing the 2015 Miken Ultra 750X (UL75MA) Maxload to the Miken Ultra 750X (UL75BA) balanced bat they both suit different type of hitters. The Maxload 750X balanced (UL75BA) is best suited for hitters who hit for bat speed and just to get on base. Where as the Maxload 750X Maxload (UL75MA) is best suited for hitters that hit for power and home runs.
Several reviews of last years bat say that it feels lighter than it is. I swing a balanced 28 oz., and an end loaded 27 oz. Would you recommend a 28 oz. for me? I'm 5'11 220 and can hit home runs almost whenever I'd like. I'm fresh out of high school and am still learning these bats.
The 2015 Miken Ultra 750X Maxload ASA (UL75MA) only has a 1/2 oz. end load. If you are a stronger player, the 28 oz. would work fine for you.

I can't find the 2014 model in 30 oz. Is this bat going to be as good? I really want the old model but if this is as good I'll take it. I have trouble spending the money since I'm just getting into the sport, but according to reviews last years model sounds great. If your league doesn't use .52 will it still do well?
