DUE TO AN OVERWHELMING DEMAND BY YOU THE BALLPLAYERS, WE HAD MIKEN RUN THIS BAT ONE MORE TIME. GET EM WHILE YOU CAN. KELLYS
Miken Freak 98 DST ASA Maxload Softball Bat. Maxload swing weight. Thin Handle. 100% Composite. R900 Carbon fiber provides 38.8" higher tensile strength than industry standard carbon fiber. (DST) Durashell Technology acts as a composite "shield" on the outher shell of the 100% carbon fiber barrel, maximizing performance out of the wrapper. Made in USA.
I tested this bat with Tommy Kunze on 1-14-2010 at Willow Pass Park in Concord, CA. The field is 300 feet all around. We used a mix of high and low compression balls. We tested a 28oz. right out of the wrapper. The Freak 98 DST has got some good pop for a 98mph bat. I was real impressed with the performance and also the size of the sweet spot. Miken's have always been known to have the biggest sweet spots. The Freak 98 DST is very forgiving even if you slightly mishit the ball you can still get a nice hard base hit. The bat also does have enough pop to put em out of a 300 foot field. Reviewed by Anthony Kelly

ADD THE BAT BREAK IN SERVICE FOR ONLY $20.00
Don't have the time or resources to break in your bat before your first game, then let the professionals do it for you. We will break in your bat by hitting 100 softballs that are pitched from a pitching machine. The balls will be pitched at regular slo pitch speed with an arc of 6 TO 8 ft. We will rotate the bat so the entire barrel breaks in evenly. The Factory shrink wrap paper will be left on the bat during the break in process. This will not void your warranty like rolling your bat in a machine would. For Slow Pitch and Fastpitch Softball Bats the Softball used will be a 12 inch Dudley Thunder 44 core 400 compression.
We are among the top Softball Bat retail stores in the nation and this is a natural break in process which we have been told by all the bat companies whose bats that we sell that they have no problem with this process and that it will not void your warranty with them like Rolling a bat would. The $20 fee is for just 1 bat. If you order more then 1 bat at a time then you will need to make sure to adjust the quanity to match how many bats you have in the order. This service is only for brand new bats bought directly from Kelly's Sports. We will not allow you to send in a bat that you bought somewhere else for this service. This Service may take 1 extra day to do and may cause a 1 day delay in your shipping option. We will do the bats in the order that they come in to us.
