It sounds as if the SSUSA umpires are misinformed. Did they give a reason?

Yes, they are approved by senior softball. I have a 28 and it is a great bat!

Discussion: New Dudley Lightning

AJC, Yesterday the Lightning was the only bat that I hit. In the past my white and back Centenarians didn't have the distance that the Lightning has. The only bat that I have hit there with that distance was the Ambush but it only lasted about 100 swings.
Some bats were given to players throughout the country and I was luck enough to be one of those.

Discussion: New Dudley Lightning

We put about 200 swings on my 28oz 12" Dudley. What you have heard is correct, it's hot out of the wrapper. We hit on a baseball field that was 315 down the lines and we hit from about 10' behind home plate. After two swings "to get the feel" I hit several in round one that one hopped the fence. I tried a full overlap grip for 5 swings an hit two between 360-375 feet.
My bp partner took about 40 swings with it and was also impressed, hitting several over 330'. I did mishit some towards the endcap and although I could feel the mishit the ball still flew 300'.
I believe Dudley has a winner in this bat!!

Discussion: Use for Broken Bats

I've cut off the last 4 or 5 inches of a broken bat and use that part for a pencil holder.

Will do TT.
You would weigh the bat horizontally, resting the knob on a fixed, stationary object. Place the other end of the bat on the scale and read what the scale shows. In the past I have used something like a knob cuff. (don't forget to zero the scale if you use something like that.) You should be as precise and consistent as possible as even a 1/16 inch difference where the end is placed will make a difference. I went so far as to construct a wooden jig for holding consistently the endcap.
Last night I returned from Dalton with my 28 and it weighs 27.9 oz and has a swing weight of 17.2. The difference may be because I wasn't consistent in weighing them or because I weighed the 27 with the wrappers and marketing card still attached.

I was given a 27 by mistake. It weighs 26.9 but the swing weight is 17.4, swingly extremely heavy, much like my MM 30. I'll be exchanging mine for a 28 today.

I used a foam roller when I had iliotibial band syndrome a month ago. It corrected my problem in a week!

Discussion: Hitting

I try to use a USSSA bat for 90% of my bp swings, taking my last 10 or so cuts with my senior gamer. It's tough finding bats that have a swing weight near that of my sr bat, so I just try to find one close.
To find the swing weight, rest the knob on a fixed object and the barrel on the scale. Most of my bats have a swing weight of 16-18oz.

"2. Limit your rounds to 20-30 swings."
This is a biggie! Unless you are in tip top shape more than this and you arms are fatigued. Three rounds of 30 are right for me. I believe that bp when you are fatigued is a waste of time, except for the cardio benefits.

Discussion: Hitting

If the first pitch is what I'm looking for I'll jump on it. I've been a first pitch hitter except when I've batted leadoff. As a leadoff hitter you may want to be a little more choosey.
