Haha ok, you must be right. It's all me, I guess I am the only one who missed it. God has spoken, I am done. You do whatever you want any way. Sorry to waste everyone's time.

Well staff, as Omar put it, facts are facts. I have had the same valid email since I've been playing, starting in the 40's. I have no explanation for the missed emails, sorry. And I'm not making this shit up. Maybe it's one of the reasons the return % of the survey was low?
But since Pitcher22 asked: Yes for 1-1 count.

Here we go again, Staff referencing the infamous survey that DID NOT go out to everyone. Staff may have sent it to everyone but not many got it. At least not many in N. Calif. I had asked several TEAMS (not people) at a NCSSA tourney a little while after it was supposed to have gone out, and two PEOPLE got it. To me, this survey is not valid. Would it have changed anything had it worked? I doubt it.

Discussion: Reebok Melee end loaded bat

1400 swings with a Melee? 1400 poopies maybe.
I broke 4 last year, average 200 swings depending on when we were in a tourney with those ridicules xrocks.

This year will be my 4th consecutive year. I've had a lot of fun each year, but I've noticed a slow decline in participation. Reasons I've heard is as BruceAZ stated above. And also it's too close to the Worlds for a lot of people.
Good luck with any positive changes you make and thank you.

Last I heard (read) was not till July at the earliest. I used this bat in Vegas last year and loved it. The one I used held together, but saw several shark-toothed (verb?)

Discussion: Reebok Barrage Legend is GREAT BAT

Update with the Barrage; Reebok called me today and is sending my money back, all of it. They don't have any bats to send out right now.
That's cool, better then what happened to the people who bought another company's bat and got nothing.
Thanks.

This is where I sent mine, but I don't have an email or phone # for them, and I don't know if you need one. I would think you do. The guy I bought it from let them know I was sending it in.

Rich I will thanks, and Happy New Year be safe.

To Mark, I heard you got yours already. I was hoping for the same but I guess I have to be patient. (I'm not real good at patient, oh well)
And this info was from Alan.

Discussion: REEBOK BARRAGE vs MIKEN ULTRA 2PIECE MAXLOAD

Nothing. Reebok won't send out replacements to Dean and I until they produce another batch, or some BS like that. It's the last dime I spend on any Reebok product. I bought it because the salesman swore that it would be more durable then the Melee. So they took my money, gave me junk from China and as a bonus, shitty customer service.
Like I said earlier don't buy this bat.
Merry Christmas everyone.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: 1 up rule

If the rule had to be changed (shouldn't have) then the 1-up should have been the rule to go to. Two power teams still have fun when they meet, AND teams with lesser power can/are very competitive. You here us tout NCSSA a lot on here, this rule is a big reason why. SSUSA really blew it all the way around with this one.

Discussion: Miken Senior Bat Review- shich is the best bat of the 3?

Ultra II Black one piece- Best pop/distance. No durability.

Ultra Two-piece White- Took 200 swings to fully break in, then promptly broke. I didn't like it, then the last 10 swings of its life it was as hot as my Melee, then it was done.

Ultra II Gray Two-piece? - The first gray one piece was great with a light endload. No durability.(I don't think there is a gray two-piece. Could be wrong?)

Discussion: REEBOK BARRAGE vs MIKEN ULTRA 2PIECE MAXLOAD

Better wait on the Barrage. Mine broke in 35 swings, and my team mates lasted 40 swings. I can't even say it was hot out of the wrapper, I was only taking 50% swings.
Alan had me ship it back to Reebok and he says they will replace it, but you might want to wait to see what we say about the replacement. Sorry Alan this is probably not what you want to hear but I'm just being honest. I haven't heard anything yet (except this thread) but it has only been a week.
If you remember the Melee had first batch issues also. It's still the hottest bat out there.
