Discussion: Softball

Agreed; the ball feels like it has a very low COR. There's no bounce or rebound to it; it's like hitting a wooden croquet ball.
And without any flex to it there will probably be even more broken bats.
All in all very disappointing, also just saying.

Took 10 swings with one at the TOC; liked it a lot, very good pop.
Ordered 3 for our team.

Discussion: All the hate on DBO with senior bats...how about this?

Garocket; don't see how that could work? We waited for a game in Vegas to finish some years ago so we could get our game in on a Saturday night. Home team was up around 30 - 22 going into the 7th of a M+ game with no DBOs. Visiting team scored around 30 in the top half to go up by about 20 runs. Home team came in and got their 20 or so runs to win. Game took over 2 hours to play and then it was too late for us to get our game in (at around 10:30pm) so they made us come back Sunday at 7am. Several of our guys refused to ever go back after that.
With 2 Unlimited innings like you're suggesting a game could last 2 1/2 hours; how could any TD run a tournament on any kind of schedule under those conditions?

Discussion: Reebok Barrage Legend is GREAT BAT

Kind of the same question: are all the v55660 bats defective and is there any other batch number out there?
Or are ALL the defective bats from the v55660 batch but not all of this batch is defective?

Discussion: Time to eliminate senior bats

Come on Turbo, really? "every softball player has a massive ego"?
And where is it written that you have to hit the middle when you're out of home runs?
That's the biggest cop-out on this whole issue.

Discussion: 2014 SSUSA Tournaments

Why only 1 tournament all year (ACC Championships in Northern Virginia) in the entire Mid-Atlantic region?
Nothing in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware or West Virginia?
There are over 100 teams in the mid-Atlantic in just the 50 thru 65 age divisions; shouldn't there be more than 1 tourney in 2014 or is SSUSA just giving this region away to ISSA?

Thanx W25; when your gamer is a 1-piece Red Miken you're always looking for a back-up . . .

What's the final verdict on the Dirty?
Does it hit as well as the Reeboks and the Ultra 2's?

Discussion: Softball and hot weather!!

At the ASA Nationals in Burlington 2 weeks ago we used a 44/375 Tattoo ball in 85 to 90 degree weather & it seemed to be OK.
Don't remember anyone complaining about the ball, but then again how could they when the "fences" were over 330 feet (looked more like 400)?

Discussion: NEW Miken Triad Blackout Senior bat !!!

Tri18; has anyone hit with this bat yet & outside of durability how will it compare performance-wise to the 1-piece & 2-piece Ultra Maxloads?
And how will it compare to the Worth Senior Legit since they're now all the same company?

Discussion: stop all the whining

ISSA combined Major+ with Major this year & it's not really working. In their recent Worlds there were 94 teams & only 14 of them were in the new M+/M bracket.
The Major teams are dropping down to AAA so they don't have to play the M+ teams & the AAA teams are dropping to AA so they don't have to play the Major teams.
Some intrinsic values probably haven't changed; most teams still don't want to show up if they're overmatched and likely to be drilled.

Discussion: Bat restrictions for Seniors.

OK; would also like to hear from anybody that swung both as to how they compare?
When the titaniums 1st came out 1 umpire told us the average hitter was getting an extra 50 feet with these bats but they were banned within 2 or 3 months after several deaths/injuries happened.

Whoa there OK, "composites came along much more powerful than the feared titanium bats of old"?
Don't think so; why do you think all titanium bats are still banned while newer & better composites are still being approved?
Also for the record, most if not all of the highest-performing golf drivers are made with a titanium face vs any type of composite.

Discussion: another senior ailment : TOE NAIL FUNGUS !

Going to the DPM tomorrow for the same problem. Last time they recommended removing & cauterizing the part of the big toenail that's growing into the toe. Apparently when they cauterize it won't grow back so you're not running around feeling like there's a nail in your big toe.

Discussion: Has the game really been toned down?

From 2000 - 2002 we used the 47/525 Dudley Red Thunder in every tournament. As soon as the Ultra 2 came out in 2003 the ball was switched to the Dudley 44/375. The Red Thunder was about 10% longer (around 30 feet for most players) than today's 375's.

Discussion: Major Plus

ISSA already combined M+ with Major this year and it's not working out. ISSA seems to let teams play at whatever level they want so a lot of the Major teams have dropped down to AAA to avoid playing the M+ teams and a lot of the AAA teams have dropped down to AA to avoid playing the Major teams.

Nothing wrong with this bat, just depends on what fits your swing best. Personally like the Red Maxload better but everyone's different . . .

Jetboy; don't think the original Senior Rip-It was ever approved for use so unless you have some new model your stick is illegal. And yes, it was considered too hot . . .
