What does it mean?

I have heard several different explanations with no clear answer.

If you have the answer, please share.

Question: What exactly does "Reloaded" mean?

What does it mean?
simply the wording of their marketing of a "different" end load. others may have their bats labeled "maxload" or XL or XXL or other.

Bat manufacturers typically have .5 oz, 1 oz, and occasionally either 1.5 oz or 2 oz endload. How they describe their endload in the naming of the bat is more indicative of how they market the bat, not specific to the amount of endload. You wouldn't see all of the bat makers with a model with the wording "reload or reloaded"

A bat manufacturer might have a bat with a 1oz endload named XXXXX endload and then come out with essentially the same bat but with .5 oz endload due to customer demand or simply to sell another line of bats and call that bat XXXXX reload.

its all about selling bats and having something that the other bat manufacturers don't have

endload is usually 1/2 ounce
reloaded is 3/4 ounce
at least that is how adidas and suncoast sold them but each manufacturer is different within their own ranks

bkb555 and i are in agreement, adidas and suncoast have used the term reload in their marketing of their bats, and the use of 3/4 oz has been dictated by demand of consumers for either slightly more swing weight than one of their 1/2 oz end loaded offerings, or slightly less than one of their 1 oz endloaded bats. As far as i know they are the only manufacturers currently using the term "reload or reloaded" in their marketing
