Topic: Bats
Discussion: Senior bat care and durability

Tri18

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!

Discussion: How much difference does an ounce make?


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?

Discussion: Combat Ambush updates

I just got the Ambush bat.
For some reason the bat felt heavier that the 27 oz. FL. that it is supposed to be.

So I weighed the bat on a post office scale.
The bat is still in the original wrapper and weighs 28.6 oz.
I would think this is out of tolerance for a bat that's labeled 27 oz.

Has anybody else noticed or is this just a mislabeled bat?

Discussion: Is it too much to expect ice water in the dugout?

Only a fool would go out to play softball in 100+ degree heat of the southwest desert and not bring water and/or expect others to do it for them.

You are supposed to take water with you when you go on any trip in the desert.

Have you never heard of a car breaking down in the middle of desert and the occupants dying within hours due to lack of water?

Take water and quit relying on others.

Your life may depend on it!

bkb555

If what your describing is true.

Perhaps that particular bat you have is a freak of the batch.

Or,if there are many numerous reports of such out of the ordinary performance from that make and model bat, than don't be surprised if that bat gets retested.

And possibly like the Titanium and original Ultra, it could get banned.

TIME WILL TELL!

Discussion: Player Ratings


How many tournaments does a player play with a team to get rated at the next higher level?

If a AAA player plays with a Major team for a tournament because the Major team was short on available team players. Will the AAA player get a higher rating if the team wins the tourney?

Question:

Other than a nice paint job, what makes the Ambush different than the other Combats?

Discussion: Open or Closed stance..

As I stated previously:


Truth is there is no "PERFECT" stance.

It's up to each individual to figure out what is "comfortable" and "works" for them.

OUT

Olden Slow

So you want to talk slow pitch softball players?

OK

Does Carl Rose, Brett Helmer, Denny Crine and Mike Machenco all use the same batting stance?
