Discussion: Worth 510 Launch - Old or New?

Hello Sisavic. I personally have broken 5 Worth Launch 510's. All within a three month period all with temperatures above 60 degrees and all using decent balls. Not to bore you but there is some interesting history with this bat. They are of course made by Miken. The gold bat is their 2008 model. It is a tiny bit more reliable than the maroon 2009 model. In 2009 the Launch 510 manufacturing changed to China thus the MADE IN CHINA label you see on the bat. They are having numerous issues with the bat. My opinion is that this bat is garbage. The gold bat for my two cents has as much if not the same pop as the Ultra II. (BOTH MADE BY MIKEN). Keep in mind though that they are virtually the same bat and are both extremely fragile as are all Ultra II's. There is a bit more to the story however i hope this will help you some.

Discussion: Warning

Let me preface this comment by stating that i am not taking a guilty or innocent position in any way regarding your bat purchase. I am a SELLER on eBay and have been myself scammed by several BUYERS. I would NEVER intentionally mislead or misrepresent an item. Several buyers have received an accurately described bat only to hit it....not like it....then state there was something wrong with it OR they found the same bat at a cheaper price. They know the cost to reship and or return an item so i have typically refunded part or all of their costs simply as a goodwill gesture. One should ALWAYS inspect closely any bat LONG BEFORE you start hitting with it. There are two sides to every purchase. Hope pay pal works with you if the bat was in fact misrepresented.

Discussion: WHAT BALL FOR RENO

Just my two cents regarding the balls used in Yuba City (Nor Cal) 5/16-5/17 and prior. They were an embarrassment to the game, the players and the sponsors who graciously spend their money enabling us to play. I might caution the tournament directors who may be doing this to save or make a buck or minimize chasing balls....this may backfire.

Dirty or who ever you are. In response to your quote it is the general consensus of many on this board that you don't get many things.....if any!

Discussion: Worth Launch 510

Hi Guys....Just purchased new Launch 510 for $99 & no shipping. It was such a good price that we are looking to purchase several more for team BP use. At basically half the price of the others if we can get a winters worth of BP it would be worth it. That said our source for the $99 bat is out of stock. Anyone out there have any sources (other than eBay). Thanks

Discussion: Yellow Macenko VS Grey Combat

Hi Guys....looking for some feedback regarding your experience so far as it applies to the DURABILITY ONLY with the new yellow Macenko as compared to the grey Senior Combat. Looks like there are enough Macenko bats out there now to establish a trend. I have hit both now with the yellow having a bit more pop. Unfortunately i have seen now two yellow bats with less than 200 hits crack. I was led to believe that the durability on the Macenko bats had improved. Please i understand temperature, balls etc. etc. have an effect so let's not make this a mile long thread. Just looking for first hand info regarding breakage. Thanks guys!

Discussion: BAN THE ULTRA

Hey PEPPERGRINDER just a question. Do you tell your buddies with the new large head composite golf clubs that they are cheaters? What about the College kids who no longer uses wood but aluminum (ps with far less injuries per capita then walking off a curb) that they are all cheaters. What about the composite tennis racquets ...they must all be cheaters. Oh the hockey industry with their composite sticks....i know they are all cheaters. Just FYI 8-Tracks are no longer the latest technology. This is the 21st Century and as one quite astute individual once said "LEAD....FOLLOW... OR GET OUT OF THE WAY"

Discussion: Las Vegas Results

Just another comment regarding the Desert Bloom complex. The lights were terrible with several near injuries. Restrooms were disgusting! No doors, soap or paper towels we are softball players and have been there before but the wives , girlfriends & fans deserve a bit more. Cops at the complex and surrounding area every several hours busting people.

Hey Dirty....Bowling????????? How could you possibly like bowling? It used to be twenty-five cents a game and NOW it's sooooo costly! AND the balls have changed sooooo much. There are now made of high tech material which makes it easier for Seniors to knock down more pins..... Gee how can you possibly pay for someone elses R&D. I guess however maybe bowling tournaments have more or just as many teams as in the old days. Makes one wonder.

Discussion: Timing

Hey Monta and Pete.....DB here. This guy has an opinion in every post....adnauseam. Like the insecure little boy that starts a fight or fire then runs away to watch what happens then returns to the crime again. I really need his advice on how to hit 1.000 I hope i don't have a problem with my timing. If i did then i might pay too much for my bats thus supporting someone else's R&D or be forced to play in a tournament with too few teams. Oh please don't lets this be true.

Discussion: New Combat Macenko Model

Dirty..... No one human being can continue to remain as backwardly negative or unable to comprehend logic as you . Do you realize that this is the twenty-first century! Technology in sports changes and evolves. Golf no longer uses a feather ball and a stick, Hockey no longer uses wood as the primary material on their sticks, Tennis no longer uses wood rackets, even the wood bat technology has drastically changed etc.etc. Technology as stated evolves as does man (most men)! Those who play those sports ALL have the same opportunity to use the best and latest equipment. Their performance has NOT been artificially enhanced by technology....just changed. Go take your worthless drivel to a Pro sports venue and see what type of responses you get from them. Even the wood bat technology has drastically changed You have every right to an opinion but please admit that you have a ZERO chance of changing the POSITIVE views we seniors have of this game. You are now merely fodder for our comments. You cannot live in your parents house forever. Either man up and play tournaments with us guys (you may find a better understanding) or PLEASE, PLEASE go to another site where you have some chance of changing perspectives.

Discussion: Senior events I like and why my own personal list

Sorry but i personally cannot speak as you may for "anyone" and or everyone.....nor should you try to do likewise. I speak only for myself. Some tournaments have three teams some five some as in Phoenix on occasion may have twenty. We are always guaranteed five games and typically enjoy all of them. Our life at softball tournaments does not solely rest on the number of teams in our division. At this point in many of our careers there may be more intrinsic, social and or camaraderie issues which keep us paying what we do.
