Default Technical question on my Combat bat

I play Senior Ball and my Combat Centenarian bat broke at the handle. It's non returnable and so I took the Cap off and wanted to know something. I noticed that Combat has an inner sleeve kind of like the Miken's and Worth bats and what I would like to do is to take the sleeve out of my broken Centenarian bat and put it into another Combat that I have that I don't use that's not a senior bat and make it a senior bat. That way I won't have to spend more money right now on another Senior bat and not totally waste my Centenarian. So does anyone know how to pull the sleeve out of these Combats. There may be a little bit of adhesive to it but it shouldn't be that hard to pull out but I just don't want to ruin the bat. Let me know if you have any experience with this or any suggestions. Thanks.

Cut it at the taper where the barrel starts and then cut the barrel in half long ways and it'll slide right out and you can put it in just about anything. Did this to several bats and they work great.

it's no different than puting an ultra sleeve in the old miken bats. Completely illegal. do what the rest of us do with broken bats. Cry inside and then fork out the money to get another one.

If done right you can do this and the bat will even pass compression. Your biggest thing is making sure you cut the bat at the taper in the right spot. As long as you do that the rest is pretty cut and dry. it is advised to use a little epoxy around the inner part of the bat you're putting the sleeve in just to keep it from turning in the barrel. Anyone needing help doing this just PM me.

Sounds like a lot of work. Plus u can be held liable if u hit anyone cause of it being altered. Is there no warrany warranty on Combat Senior bats?

It's not really all that bad... can be done in a couple hours time if you know what you're doing and have the right tools.
