2022 Miken Freak Primo Review

Miken is one of the most trusted brands regarding slowpitch bats, and they are constantly searching for new ways to improve their bats. One of their latest innovations is the Freak Primo, which features new composite materials and a smaller knob.

So, let’s jump into the review and see what the Miken Freak Primo Maxload brings to the table.



In terms of new technologies, Miken hasn’t added anything special to the 2022 version of the Freak Primo compared to the 2021 version, but that shouldn’t present a big issue, since the 2021 version was a great bat, and it didn’t really need any significant improvements when it comes to technologies. 

Many players love the Freak Primo bats because they come very hot off the wrapper, and the 2022 model does too. Another significant factor that the Miken Freak Primo brings to the plate is power, which is always an important aspect to consider when buying a bat.

Features & Construction

If you are familiar with the Miken Freak Primo bats, you may remember some of the interesting features of the 2021 Freak Primo that the 2022 model also has. For starters, we have Miken’s Tetra-Core Technology, which uses the inner tube inside the bat to make it more responsive and increase the bat’s power output.

The bat has a strong composite frame that makes it extremely durable, but at the same time very light, which will help you get more power out of your swings and make them faster.

Another factor that will also help in generating the power is the big 14″ barrel with 0.5oz added to the top of it, hence the name Maxload. The Freak Primo bats also feature a larger knob on the end of the handle, which is good for two reasons: it increases the overall grip area and makes the bat easier to hold.

The Freak Primo has a reputation for producing huge amounts of power, and this is something that you should expect from it. While it is known for its massive amount of power, the bat is not as hard-hitting as some of the other big hitters on the market. However, if you have the ability to hit the ball out of the park, then the Freak Primo bats will help you do it with ease.

It is also very forgiving, so if you hit it hard or mishit it, you don’t need to worry a lot. One thing to keep in mind though is that the Freak Primo can be very heavy, which may affect your swing, especially if you are used to playing with lighter bats. 



The looks of the 2022 version of the Freak Primo are different from the 2021 version, mainly in terms of colorway. Now we have a purple bat with orange Miken and Primo logos, while the 2021 version had a black background with orange graphics. h brighter, and the green just pops off. We can also see a gradient purple color, which we haven’t seen in the previous model.


If you want a big hitter, the Freak Primo is a great option. However, if you want a light hitter, the Freak Primo is not the best choice. It is heavy and it will require you to practice to get used to swinging with it, but once you have done so, you will be able to hit the ball out of the park.

The pop is there, and the sound it produces is pretty good, so keep the Miken Freak Primo high up on your wish list.
