Default Miken Freak 98 question

I recently purchased a Freak 98 on eBay, it has a serial #71933304 stamped on
the handle of the bat. I have been reading about some of these Freak 98 bats
being fake Ultra bats. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to know for sure if
this bat is a real Freak 98.Everything on it looks to be legit, but I would just like to know for sure. I paid around $100.00 for it and it looks almost new.
Thank you for any help.

If by chance, it is a repainted ultra, you won't need a test. You will know as soon as you swing it. An unbroken in Freak 98 is still fairly stiff. An ultra is utterly ridiculous, even compared to a well broken in Freak.

Not sure what you mean by utterly ridiculous. You mean the ultra is better then the 98?

Much better. That is why they were banned.
