My son and most of the boys he plays with use Easton bats (he has a 2013 XL1). 4 or 5 of those bats are having the cap come off or loose after every hit. They all have exceeded the 400 day warranty by about 30 days! Do these Miken bats have this problem and what kind of pop do these bats have verse the Easton?
The 2014 Miken Rev-Ex Youth Baseball Bat (YRVX12) hasn't had a prominent problem with the end cap coming off or loose. The Miken will have a 12 Month Manufacturer through Miken. Performance wise, the Rev-Ex would have very similar performance to Easton Bats.
