Discussion: Hard time getting ahold of Team 1 sports re: broken Ambush

Once I put the cap in place, and yes it wants to come out because it is air tight, I get it as tight as it will go then I wipe off the excess glue with an alcohol solvent. Then I will take 3 10 inch pieces of duct tape and tape it over the end plug on 3 spots accross the end cap. This should keep the end cap in toight. It has worked for me. Stand it on its plug overnight. All you can do is try. I hope this helps.

It seems like somethings work better than other ones for certain people. I know that the glue Pete usesd works. I believe I got the ingrediant form Krueg. He kn ows the real good stuff but it so expensive. Hey Pete waht was the glue that Krueg suggested again? Thanks in advance....

Discussion: Hard time getting ahold of Team 1 sports re: broken Ambush

The key to any end plug repair is having some patience. You want to use a 80 grit sandpaper and clean the end plug as well as the inside of the barrel. Kevin Schullstrom is the one who really worked it out to repair the bats. I just followed suit. One thing I do is put plenty of the glue inside of the barrel and a lot on the end plug. I am a firm believer in more than less when it comes to end plugs. It (might) add a little bit of weight to the bat but I really don't think it will be noticable. If anybody has any questions about the end plugs you can contact me at mike@bigcat844.com.. Hope this helps.

It is a new senior bat that Coop is doing for Mike Kelly. He is not only doing a senior bat he is also producing a ASA and USSSA models as well. The scoop is another great bat that Combat is doing for Kelly's Ulitmate Sports. What is the difference? I really can't tell you because I don't know except that it is not one of our projects at Anaconda Sports. Combat makes great bats. I hope this helps. it is not much but that is what I know. I won't bullcrap you.

Discussion: New Reebok?

Bruce, I don't believe you will see a 10 inch barrell in the Reebok line of bats. There was a lot of talk about a 10 inch. Especially if you watch Dave Reed hit it. I just don't think that is going to happen. It should have but it didn't and won't. Just what I know.

Front Of The Line WOW!

Discussion: Centenarians & Twilight

Just a note to let everyone know that I got some good pricing on the White or Black Centenarians along with the Twilight. I just had one player that had over 800 swings on his Twilight and he said it played unbelievable. The last 50 swings were by far the best with any senior bat he has swung before. Just give me a ring if I can be of help...

I sure am glad that I didn't have to dial in on my bats or I might not have ever hit a home run.

Discussion: Corky Pellen and SSUSA Truck Schedule

I will be getting in on Thursday afternoon. As soon as I get there I will post where he will be on Friday. As far as Corky being at Shadow Rock, I spoke with him around 12:00 on Tuesday and he said that was where he was headed. He had been at another diamond in the morning. There are a number of complexes that he travels to. I will post where he will be on Friday.

Discussion: Twilight Senior Softball bat In Vegas At SSUSA

If you get a chance and see Corky at one of the fields in Las Vegas ask him about the new senior softball bat, the Twilight. He has them on board the SSUSA truck. I will be out there on Thursday morning and will have some demo's for players to try. The Twilight is the latest state of the art senior softball bat from Combat Sports. It is of 2 piece construction and Anaconda Sports feels this is the new bat design of the future. Anaconda Sports has done an exclusive with this new bat and you can give me a call at 330-419-0205 for further information on this product. You can call me direct also to order your new softball bat. Will see you in Vegas on Thursday.. Good luck to all teams and players.
You can check this link out for more info.

HJ, sorry for the delay in answering your question.

End of barrel - not the sweet spot but at the end of the bat where when you usually hit the end of the bat the ball doesn't go to far. The way the handle and barrel work together at that precise moment gives you a little bit more distance because of the flex.

Barrell it up - when you hit it on the sweet spot. the barrels are 11.5 inches long, so you have quite a big sweet spot.

Smaller hitter - the way the bat is designed the players with a slower bat speed might benefit more from this bat. It could be a big guy with a slower bat speed. So no I don't mean short players.

Bottom line is hitting should be kept quite simple. See the ball and hit the ball. The last thing you want to do at the plate is to think too much. It will get you in trouble. I now first hand because that is what would happen to me more times than I would like to remember. If you want you can give me a call to discuss anythng further.
