Guys! relax, there is nothing wrong with the CORE. Overbudget and behind schedule is not a sin but the norm for making a new product, with new tooling and new designs. The bat is a major project in itself and tooling is even more of uphill climb.
Steve is on top the issues and is doing everything he can to move forward within a safe speed. There is no one waiting for this bat that is bent out of shape in the least. If they are then they need to call me or Steve direct, have a drink and relax.

Please note that only the old GSC (made in China) have been hit. The CORE bat has only been hit in controlled field test. We have a group of players already lined up to help test the new CORE once production issues are finished. Remember that the prototype bats only let us know the concept would work. We now have to turn that concept into a product that can mass produced which is not an easy task. If we had to decided to copy the layup of other bats we would have been up and running many moons ago. To create a new concept, a new design and to hand make the tools to bring it to being has proved to be a major challenge, a task we have accept and work to complete.

Traditional production is to wrap bats by hand, however we use a computer based process run by a highly complex software program. This is the stage that is taking the longest amount of time and is something we have to rely on outside computer engineers to work on. We were very happy with the ASA and Senior field test last week and will have another round next week. We are in the final laps and thank all those involved for your patience and understanding.

Discussion: Best softball on the planet, bats too....

If you are in the Tampa area on Jan 13/14 please visit Plant City to watch the Wounded Warriors play the FCA all stars. The Wounded Warrior team is made up of some of our nation’s bravest and most determined heroes, soldiers, and veterans. These young, extremely athletic men have sustained severe injuries resulting in amputation while serving in Afghanistan or Iraq. Through extensive rehabilitation, they have become competitive athletes again. The weekend will be nothing short of challenging, encouraging and motivating and promises to be both an inspirational and an emotional experience for all involved.

The FCA team (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) is made up softball great like Jennie Finch, Dot Richardson, Leah O’Brian and even Johnny McCraw.

If you want more information please contact me.

Thank you,

We had a busy week working on the ASA model. Getting ready for lab and field testing. On the senior bat the programming is moving forward well and all indications lead to a successful launch at the Wounded Warrior/FCA game on Jan 14 in Florida.

We just started field testing units from the production line. It is slow process with many small adjustments along the way. We are planning on having the bats fully ready for tournaments in January.

Thanks,

Not a puppy any more…..the web site (gscbats.com) is upgrading to a new host and will be up when we are ready. As for as production we are still building the production line. Found some issues that needed to be fixed before production and as we understand many have been waiting it is still better to get it right from the start. As we stated before we are not in a rush to deliver and have found it is better to change the tooling now then later.
Say what you will however we are in full gear here in Charleston.

Solid advice....just keeping in touch with the many that are asking. So many emails and calls, this is a great way to let them know where we are. Thank you for wish for luck....please note that we have not taken any pre orders, we will wait till the bat is in hand and since we don't have to wait for a slow boat from China we will be able to deliver very fast.
