Topic: Bats
Discussion: Solar Bat Warmes

Speaking of next year, competition in the bat wars must be heating up. My last Combat Ambush I received had a 1 year warranty decal on the bat. Never seen a senior bat with any kind of warranty.

Think that is a sign of things to come?

Dbax, what info makes you think warmers DON"T work? I'm certainly not as they say a rocket scientist, but considering the material these bat are made from, looks like heat would make them more flexible. So I would assume that would help with the trampoline effect, course you know where assuming will get you.
Just wondering.

Discussion: Bat restrictions for Seniors.

Biscuit, several options on bat choices. Most of us have a hard time avoiding senior equipment ads. There are several people on the board that are very knowledgeable about the different leagues and their rules. The one person that I depend on is Alan(561-718-7504) at Team1sports(tricoach18@att.net). I'm sure he could answer all your questions and has always been truthful. He can advise you for what every age group your in. Also has very competitive prices.
Good luck on your second time around.

Discussion: 2 piece Ultra broke after 6 games..... extremely disappointed

Good to hear follow up on your bat. Kind of thought they would help you. Have received 4 or 5 of the second run Ambush bats and I noticed they have added a year warranty sticker on the bat. First senior bat I've seen with a warranty. Guess competition is forcing companies to offer some kind of help.

Great news Alan. There getting here just as softball is really heating up.
Do you think the formula for the bat will be the same as before? Hope they didn't change anything. Have seen on this board where performance changed from one batch to another on different brands.
Happy Father's Day Guys!!

I echo your comments about Allen's knowledge, also he and his family are just good people. I fell in love with his new Ambush bat, but since they are on back order he sent me a Miken two piece and it is doing a good job for me. Still like the Ambush better personal, guess everybody's swing is deferent. Hope this post gets me a discount of some kind. LOL

Boy-O-Boy! Been using the Ambush with good success. Just purchased a two piece Miken as the Ambush is on back order. Hope I have better luck with my two piece then you did my dear.
I really fell like they will help you though.

Discussion: What does a rattle mean

My 26oz. end loaded Ambush has also developed same rattle. When I grip the bat in a swinging grip and wiggle it rattles at the end. Alan informed me that maybe some of the epoxy has come lose. No indication it is about to break. Said probable because of my power and or G-forces(Yeh Right). He also told me what type glue to use if I could get end cap off. When my backup bat arrives think I will just send it back a let a professional do it. Meantime, use it.

AHHH!, Mr. Gasket (Joe Hrudka) started selling header gaskets out of the trunk of his car.
You guys are getting way back now. And yes Tommy (Mouseketer) Ivo did he have some wild rides or not? I think every boy in my era had a crush on Annette.
Seems all the people and things I grew up with are disappearing.

Curveball, that class has gotten so competitive AND expensive which is way I had to go home.
Those California boys are tough, it's hard to stay with big money. Course Jimmy has so many other cars he runs he won't miss one. Looking forward to seeing some old friends at the Southern Nationals(Atlanta) next month.
If these bats keep going up and belonging to the bat of the month club I may have to go home from softball also.

Discussion: SSUSA BANNED BATS

Fairly new to senior softball and I see where the Miken Ultra/Ultra 1(orignal Gray Bat)and titanium bats are banned from play.
But I also see where they have banned fast pitch bats from play.
Is there a performance advantage in using a fast pitch bat?

Discussion: Why the low prices on bats?

I guess senior bats are like electronics, they get cheaper as time goes by. After they recoup thier research and development cost.
One other thought, NOBODY is as bad as golfers!

Discussion: new bats

$1000??? I'm tired of spending half that a year for the bat of the month club. These manufactures really know how to work us old guys. There is so much conflicting info out there. And we eat a promise of 10 more feet up.
Guess I'm just as gullible as anybody.

Discussion: ANYBODY SELLING THE YELLOW MM SENIOR GEAR

Playball212, my neighbor has two of the blue MM ones, 28 and 29oz. He is no longer able to play and I'm sure would sell them at a reasonable price. 29oz. not even broke in yet. Just an option if you don't find one.
