We played again in the 2013 Hinohara Cup. This time I used the Combat Ambush 27oz. maxload and it did drive the ball better than the Miken Maxload. I believe a stiffer shaft bats does better than the flex shafts. Certainly a heavier bat would drive any ball further, but I would use the same weight with a stiff shaft.

I not sure which Kenko ball is being discussed here but I can share my awareness of the 14 inch Kenko Ball. Nagase Kenko Co.(NKC) manufactures a wide variety of baseball, softball,etc.. This 14" is made of rubber and does NOT have a core and is very popular and played throughout Japan. I've played in the Hinohara Cup tournament in Tokyo and had a great time. The people are unreal nice and generous. We felt bad taking the Tournament Championship. The bases are 50 ft., pitcher plate is 40 ft, and the homerun barrier is 164 ft. I really can't see anyone hitting this ball 220 ft., unless there was a very strong tail-wind. We scored 57 runs and gave up 4 in four games. No one had a homerun over the barrier. You have to strike the ball perfectly as "batter4u" described previously. Macho guys would not enjoy this unique game of softball since they would look silly trying to rip homeruns. I recommend using a bat that gives you the best accuracy. I did quite well using a 27oz. Miken Maxload. This game is great for goodwill, fellowship, and social bonding.
Aloha
