Questions and Answers for Miken Ultra II Senior Slow Pitch Softball Bat: MSU2
is this bat end loaded or balanced? and how does it compare to the ultra II black big cat?
The Miken Ultra II Senior Slow Pitch Softball Bat (MSU2) is a balanced bat. In comparison to the 2016 Miken Ultra II Black Balanced Senior Slow Pitch Softball Bat (U2BLKB) is is pretty different. The MSU2 is a one piece composite bat while the U2BLKB is going to be a 2 piece composite bat. The 2 piece will offer a little more flex while the one piece offers a more traditional feel. Neither has an inherited advantage over the other and whether somebody liked one over the other is going to be all personal preference.
