I think it's more of a Freak Black El, Bal and Freak 30..

Platinum has TMC+ and the above do not..

Almost certain it's a flashy new paint job on older hardware BUT I want one all the same...

Have got to try most of this years Miken lineup and can tell u it's not a repraint. It doesn't have the traditional Miken ping sound. The freak show is very good from swing one as most mikens are. I've only got to try the 12" red max load and it swings lighter then this years F30. I would highly recommend picking one of these up. You won't be disappointed

I should have a freak 30 and the 12 inch Freakshow any day now. I'll try to see how they compare. Bighurt's review is definitely encouraging.

Based on the order time for an SMU from concept to production I'd guess it's a safe bet this is a tweak of something in last years line up...

We unwrapped a balanced 28 Friday and put it to work.

Weighting- feels a little on the light side to me, but the guys who like balanced bats really liked it and felt comfortable with it.

Hitting- feels and sounds​ a little more stiff than the '16. But our '16 also has about 600hits. That said, it definitely can use a few rounds of BP before gaming.

Everyone likes to rip on whoever is using it from some reason. "Look at the clown and his bat...." Etc...It's really strange

150 swing update..... Has some sand rattle and balls are just bouncing off of it now. The balance guys really like this one.

Gamed the Green Supermax Freakshow in a 27oz, and it's orgasmic. The ball was flying off this thing. The Grip feels nice and the endload is noticeable. Really love this bat.

We have a 26oz that comes in light and I'll weigh the 27oz today some time.
