Discussion: What the #@%& is a BATCH?

It seems I always hear that the 1st batch of any model bat is the best, can't remember anybody advising to wait for the 2nd or later batch.

Does the quality of the bats go downhill from there?

I recall Auto Industry insiders advising me to not buy the first year model run of a any car because all the "bugs" haven't yet been worked out. Wait for the 2nd year model.

Evidently, what theories that apply for bat manufacturing is no where close to that of automobile manufacturing!

Discussion: What the #@%& is a BATCH?

I have worked in the Auto Industry and can't recall ever hearing of a Batch of cars. Never heard of buying the first or second batch of cars or car parts.

What other manufactured products are made in a batch or run, is sold but the number of units in the run is unknown?

ALSO HOW CAN A CUSTOMER FIND OUT WHICH BATCH WAS MADE BEFORE MAKING A PURCHASE?

WHY DON'T THE BAT SELLERS ADVERTISE WHAT BATCH NUMBER THEY ARE SELLING?

I just can't understand why NOBODY has bought that "Wonder Bat" yet?

How can so many pass up this great deal?

Discussion: Best website for titanium necklaces?

I see some people wear just one thin necklace and some wear what looks like 2 or 3 necklaces woven together to be a thick necklace. Does the thicker the necklace give more benefit than the thin one?

Is it the more of these items a person wears the better it works?

So if you use an aluminum bat, you can't hit a ball hard enough to hurt a pitcher?

Does anybody know why it is that in all forms of Baseball and Softball from T-ball to college to Major League, batting helmets are required for batting and base running, but in slow pitch softball is this rule exempt?

Did you bother to "break the bat in" before you declared it "no good"?

How many swings did you put on it?

As I was reading your comments on this thread something didn't seem to make sense to me. In your comments you stated that the use of Senior Bats in temperatures below 65 degrees will drastically shorten the life of the bat. Then you suggested that purchasing a USSSA bat with a 1 year warranty for the cooler weather to be used in place of the senior bat. The problem is that USSSA bat will not last much longer than the senior bats if used in temps below 60 degrees. Sure, you get a 1 year, 1 time replacement warranty, but both the purchased and replacement bats could be broken in just a matter of months if used in cold weather. A few years ago I did just what you suggested and during the cooler Las Vegas months I cracked 2 USSSA Miken Denny Crine Pyscho bats with warranty. The first bat I cracked was the one I purchased and the second bat was the warranty replacement. While I agree that USSSA bats will hold up better than senior bats during cooler weather there is no guarantee they will not break. The use of the U-trip bats is only a bandage and not a cure for use below 60 degree weather problem. I am still looking for a solution for the cool weather bat use problem.

The two piece bat against the one piece.

Should the Combat White Centenarian be thrown into this mix?

Which is the overall winner between these beasts?

Let your opinions and votes begin.

HOW DO YOU RATE THESE BATS?

AND THE WINNER IS??????

And I thought it was because of taking too many drugs back in the 60's!

Or was it the 70's!

Can't remember....

Have to go take a nap and think about it....

or did I do that already?

A Stiffer Handle?

I was under the impression that handle flex is desirable?

Isn't flex the reason for standing on the handle?

Can anybody explain?

Thank you!

If follow through makes no difference then why does Tiger Woods or any golfer end up with his golf club high over his shoulder when he is hitting the golf ball only several inches in front of his toes?
