I have had two of these bats. The first was hot out of the box and after giving me much gratification, it finally broke. I had a second similar bat but after over a 100 hits it is very flat and has no pop. I've done better with traditional bats. A friend who is a student of hitting and bats says he heard that there may have been a batch of these bats that were substandard. I'd like your input about this before I purchase another bat.

I want to buy this for a gift. How do I know what weight to get? He is 5'6, 150 lbs. Senior, not a good hitter (but a great pitcher!). Thanks.
The most common size bat for someone his size would be a 26-27 ounce weight. When he gets it, before he takes the wrapper off, have him swing it, if it isn't the right size you can send it back and we can exchange it. We offer free shipping back to us.
why does it crack
This bat has a great amount of pop, the way the bat is constructed is to give it the highest amount of pop possible this also creates a little bit of a durability issue with the bat
does the bat come with a fat handle also?
No, it only comes in the standard size handel.
What's the difference between the MSU2 and MSU2M?
The MSU2 is evenly balanced. The MSU2M will be endloaded with more of the weight distributed towards the end of the barrel.
