Check out this page though it's BB and FP primarily same forces apply.

There are many others out there as well.

Comes down to heaviest without loosing bat speed IMO.

Mass, energy, velocity. Albert Einstein knew.
Personally I prefer balanced bats, but do use on occasion some el's. Depends on how much EL and bat weight.
Like everything, its personal, with no one size fits all.

Discussion: 2015 Combat Dirty G3 Reload

The just came out with another on pre-order, the 'Protent'.
a few videos are out there but one that only showed some great hits really didn't show the bat. up close. Video on Combat site was lousy or at least the one I viewed. Left handed batter was hitting to the left and right but I couldn't tell how well it was I left about half way through.
As they say, it isn't the bat it's the user. lol

I'd agree IF you can keep the same bat speed.

Marv, neither of those are 'hot' links. So you need to work on that. Been there.

Look for them at the Reno event in the old truck. Kinda the reverse of the old Easton Zapper bat. Maybe someone will finally get it right let alone market what they 'promote'.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Huntsman World Senior Games

About the only thing, game wise, would be using a database of players at levels placed by you or if able to gather from other assn's and rate teams more accurately. "You" use so many brackets and players are jumping from one near bottom one time to another at or near the top level.
Personally I love the open rosters but how the teams are or have been placed is not always kosher. Best fields out there as are also in Mesquite lately.
Sun and occasionally wind effect a few fields perhaps those game times could looked at. Especially the sun factor. Dusk and dawn.
Fantastic place to play for the week or two.

You are absolutely correct Bruce. That's the up side but the downside is it gives an 'excuse' to raise fees which are done anyway like the short lived 'truck' did.

I notice many guys wearing a full set of catchers gear. Trouble with it is time it takes to put on and take off. Otherwise about the best to use.

Seems as though some good info may come from using this gadget. I will look into it again and check the links out MurrayW provided. Bruce thanks for the info on the bat swing weight.

Topic: Product review
Discussion: gloves on throwing hand

One of those sites, I think 1st one you listed has softball as a link. But they when I asked said none were made for throwing balls. Some show gloves with 'receiver' as part of name. Personally I think the tacky or stickiness might cause ball to move in a direction not intended at release point.
Perhaps one with top portion of fingers cut would help there though like weight lifters gloves. I use one primarily for extra padding for glove palm.
