What do you think is the best 2013 Miken USSSA Softball bat? I am leaning towards the 2013 Miken NXT Freak Maxload USSSA: SNXTMU Slow Pitch or the 2013 Miken MV-1 Supermax: SPMVMU Slow Pitch
Both of these are good bats. It depends on how end loaded you want it. The 2013 Miken MV-1 Supermax will be slightly more end loaded than the 2013 Miken NXT Freak Maxload.
Will the MV-1 come out balanced any time soon for 2013 or will it remain Supermax? The older balanced version is a hot bat.

does this compare to the miken superfreak maxload in performance?
I would give the Super Freak a leg up in terms of performance. I've hit with both and the MV1 felt great to swing, but I felt I was getting about 10-15 additional feet using the Super Freak. That's my opinion at least.
what is the hottest miken bat thats out on the market now(new ones)
If you're judging by straight up performance, I would go with the new Ultra II (SPU2P). Out of all the new Miken's it is the hottest. After that, I would go with the Miken Freak SPFXBU.

The MSMV1BU is a balanced version of the MV-1.
