Pretty sure this is the Miken PT12. I also want to try this bat. Here is one of my fav youtubers swinging it:

I've swung the new alloy handle pink/black Miken and it performed quite well right out of the wrapper. It's definitely less forgiving on mishits but when you put it together and hit it on the sweet spot the ball flies off the bat...

Be interesting to see what happens with this one...

Death to Demarini in Utrip

Obviously we know the barrel is sick...

Now the stiff alloy handle lovers finally get a bat with Miken heat off the barrel but the alloy handle. Hmmmmm....

have you played ball in the western side of the USA?
its ALOT more popular than you think!

i think Miken should make a model with an alloy handle and bigger barrel too.

Nope, never have. I gotta be honest, I don't understand why they like the D so much in Utrip. So many better options IMO.

I am not sure on the whole alloy handle thing. Not for me. I like a stiff handle but still prefer it in composite.

No doubt it will be popular and a big barrel version would be well received.

So much for keeping this info classified... Here's factory testing video... Did really well in the middle of a monsoon (Steele's idea)
