Discussion: New Miken ASA Ultra

The Mulewhipper flat out smashes , I've got to witness several huge bombs these last couple of years. Personally with the hard as a rock balls we use in league I like to use a Utrip bat, not only because of the durability issue but also because I think that most senior bats flex way to much thus sacrificing some distance when used by a player with fast hands and strength like the M whipper. We have a player on our team who uses the white Combat Centurian who hits some of the longest balls I have ever seen , he has had no durability issues and also has extremely fast hands but is not near as big nor do I think has the strength of Mwhipper. Another teammate bought the Centurian from Corky that was made in the Great White North, pulled it out and hit some bombs. He was trying to get the team to sing " Oh Canada" after the game. Lol. I will say after watching other big hitters and testing the bats I am anxious to get the new GSC bat in M whippers hands. I truly feel that it will out perform any senior bat out there and has the durability of a Utrip bat if not better.. We'll see soon .. Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there... Troy E

To Jeff ,
Thanks for the clarification , the bats are very live indeed . I said the same about the Double Wall in the early 90's as I walked away from competitive softball.. It is cool seeing the prideful smile on a seniors face after hitting the longest ball he has ever hit in the " Bucket List " years of his playing career.. Priceless.. Good luck this year and give the GSC bat a shot , if performance is something your not worried about then the durability itself makes this bat the best value around.. Troy E

To JDub
What does stoooopid mean ? You seem to like to chime in on various posts with cocky remarks.. I'm thinking you must be this omnipotent ( big time softball player ).. Been many years since I've heard a grown man use words like you do . Way to represent JDub ,.. Lol

I Have swung the GSC Bat extensively and found it to be comparable if not better performing then the other senior bats I have used. Durability on the other hand is off the charts. I know that players in my area are anxiously waiting it's arrival. They are also making an ASA Bat and quite possibly a USSSA/NSA model as well. Steve, Rev and the team are really on to something special here. My humble 2 cents, Troy E

Discussion: what is the.....

The Reebok Melee and Ultra 2 are good performers but lack seriously in durability. GSC is coming out with a bat I have personally tested and found it to be equal in performance to the above but totally in another world when it comes to durability. We hit 47/525 evil balls over 1100 swings and not a single rattle. Hands down the best all around performer I have seen. And with it's rolled end it is tamper proof. My 2 cents for what it's worth..

To SFTF,
There were a few players as well as myself that took swings with the bat between games . There was a few prototype bats floating around Z3000's etc I recall and I don't remember seeing any of them being used during the games. I would think , correct me if I'm wrong that most players in a game situation would swing a bat that they are familiar with . And the fact like olie04 previously said the bat doesn't have a senior affiliation stamp might have something to do with it also . Once again , just my opinion ... Troy

Taits ,

I see your from Fresno area , the past weekend tourney I previously spoke of was in Fresno . It was not very competitive . I don't think it was ssusa but some other affiliation . They allowed 2 he's per inning and singles after that . They used a ball called Spirit . A 44 core ball that didn't fly at all .. Anyway if your one of the players that had an issue with GSC , I would get in contact with them . I'm sure they will take care of you .. Troy

Actually just took some swings with the prototype . Like I stated before , I have a a good friend who is new with the company and take his word as gold . I have had so much trouble with durability on the senior bats . In fact this past weekend my team broke 2 reeboks , a black and orange worth and an ultra 2 . This was our 2nd tourney of the year . Since I tried the GSC bat and know it's much more durable than the others , I'm sold and waiting for it to be released . It seems to be a great bat with weight options available. In case your wondering , there is no incentive for posts , just the truth to the best if my knowledge . I left a number on my previous post , so maybe give Rev a call and he can answer more of your questions . I'm a player just like you ... Troy

Discussion: Bat/ball combos of yesteryear

USMC,
Being a former service man myself , I must warn you . Many great hitters have come out of NorCal and even though we have had our differences at times , I must say that Tim along with Rev are probably two of the best right handed hitters to come out NorCal. Tim never really had the physical gifts of others but he worked hard at the game . He defined spinning the ball , a term I hear from many even the younger generation. I bet they don't have a clue where it came from .. Lol Tim is truly a pioneer of the game up here and probably the most " technical" or fundamental hitter around ... Thanks for your device and good luck this year ... Troy

I misread your reply . I'm reading and responding from my iPhone and the threads are not easy to read .. Sorry .. Dan Arevolos would be the person to contact (530) 304-9816 . I heard they are having some of the bats to try in Lincoln , near Sacramento at a senior tourney this weekend . Man I'm too sorry for giving you my softball bio when you didn't ask for it ... Lol .

Respectfully ,

Gentlemen , concerning the GSC bat . I was only given my honest opinion . I got a chance to swing the bat and think highly of it , it hit extremely well and seems not to have durability issues like the other bats I have swung . Another issue in the game is altering , some guys even modify senior bats .. Lol . Really ? This bat has a rolled end in it thus discouraging "easy" tampering . I know someone will come up with a way to get into this bat eventually ," they always do " however , why make it easy . These are huge issues to myself and most of the players I play with . In my opinion , a bat company that will sell you a bat for $ 150-250 and offer no warranty ,, you get even 300 swings ( which is something I have never come close to getting ) and the thing breaks is robbery . Or are we just plain stupid for giving them our money for an extra 40-50' ? True I don't know what happened in the past with customer service or who was involved but I do know the prototype performed extremely good , the same bat ( which was relatively new at the time) I swung is still in action and performing great , and I can attest that some of the guys that I heard from that have used the bat are some of Norcal's finest hitters , I have great respect for a couple of the GSC team members and consider their word gold, they are GOD fearing which personally in these times means much to me and last but not least , these other companies , Miken , Reebok , Worth and Combat have been selling us bats for years , and what ? you get a few hundred swings and toss it in the garbage then order a new one ? I personally can't wait for this bat to be released , I have 6 other senior bats in my closet that are cracked or broken , myself I don't toss them so I can remember what not to do with my hard earned $$ . Do what you got to do , I'm ready for a change . Thanks for your time and good luck this year .. Troy
