Miken Freak DST
Released April, 2010
The Pros:Very good line-drive performance, experienced hitters will find this easy. Capable of hitting balls up to the highest allowed ASA speeds (98mph). Higher maximum distance than many average bats.
The Cons:Rather high price point for the typical softball player. Relatively small sweet spot takes some practice.
