Thanks Lefty,that's good to know.Is the reason for going with a 29oz is that to help you let the weight of the bat do the work for you?

Discussion: Ulta2 with ASA stamp???

With some of the new senior bats that are coming out now that hit just as well and have some durability you would think that they should find that old technology. Just saying.

Discussion: Asa bats

Here is some good info on new ASA approved bats that I found on another site:

As of October 1, 2012, ASA has changed the way they are testing their slow pitch bats. With this change, ASA has also created a new stamp for all ASA-certified bats. Donít worry though, ASA bats with the old stamp are grandfathered in and legal for play moving forward.

The biggest change has to do with how ASA performs their tests. In the past, ASA bats were tested with a cannon that fired a softball at the barrel of a bat at 110 mph. This test measured the balls exit speed off of the barrel to ensure the batís performance didnít result in an exit speed greater than 98 mph. In the new test, the ball is fired at 105 mph instead of 110, but allows the exit speed to remain at 98 mph. The decrease in cannon speed allows for a greater bat performance. By slowing down the rate of the ball in the test, manufacturers can increase the speed at which the ball leaves the bat.

There was also a change made to the official softball used in ASA competition. In the past, ASA required a 44 Core, 375 compression ball. Now they allow a 52 Core, 300 compression ball. In simplified terms, the ball is now bouncier than in the past. ASAís goal is to have the ball flex more than the bat and for ASA bats to perform more like USSSA bats.

Even with the new rule changes, not all ASA bats will be USSSA certified. Each bat is specific as to which leagues it is legal. For example, the new Triad from Miken is ASA certified, but is too hot for USSSA play. While the Z-2000 from Louisville Slugger is maxed out on the ASA test, but still able to pass the USSSA certification.

Discussion: Ulta2 with ASA stamp???

We all know how good the ultra2 with the asa stamp is.What I don't understand is why doesn't miken produce the exact same bat again.Since we are all looking for a bat that will out hit all other senior bats and that was one of the most durable senior bats that was out there. I think if miken wants to get back on top they should.What do other people think?

Just my rant for today

Discussion: cold weather bats

I swung the 2pc fossil in March in Florida when the temp was around 50 degrees with no problems.I'm not a masher but was able to bounce the ball off of a fence 300ft away.Played in 4 games and teammates and me hit bp before every game.We were using 44/375's.Bat is still going strong today.

Discussion: remedies for arthritis

I've got arthritis in my left ankle.I found that when I wrap my ankle with a strong magnetic necklace the pain is almost totally gone. Also at the beginning of the year I was experiencing a lot pain in my groin area from probably to much BP. I started taking the Performance Formula that Tri18 was promoting and within two weeks that pain went away. This might be something to look into
phantomf4j.Call Alan and talk to him.

Discussion: ASA Only?

I play in an oldtimers 3 pitch league that adopted the hotdot 52/275 last year.At the beginning of the season I didn't do well,but the last half I started to hit it better.When hit correctly the ball will fly.I did hit 4 that went over a fence that was 275ft away. Yes I was hitting from home plate. This is my bragging post but I do a lot of bp . I don't like the sound of the dream seam ball.I hope no one hears of it up here.

Discussion: ASA Only?

Hi taits...I was informed that the asa only bats are being tested the same as prior asa bats were except that they are now using the hotdots 52/300.Apparently if you use a 44/375 ball with the new asa only bats they will be hotter than the new 1.20 thumb print stamped bats.That is why here in Canada we will not be allowed to use them in SPO(Slow Pitch Ontario) and SPN(Slow Pitch National) sanctioned tournaments.If you have a new asa stamp as well as the thumb print stamp it will be accepted.I do agree that not all bats in the same category are equal.And I'm also a fool who owns to many bats and will bring different ones with me .

Discussion: ASA Only?

I might be playing on a 60+ tournament team. In Canada we are only allowed to use the 1.20 thumb print stamped bat. The team will be playing the odd tournament in the states that I believe senior bats 1.21 are allowed. If I had an ASA only bat could I use it there?

Discussion: Monsta Athletics Senior Bats

When I was on vacation in Daytona I tried to order a the new miken ultra11 2pc el from Kelleys. Because my home address was in Canada they said they would not send it to me there? I ended up ordering and getting the monsta fossil 2pc el sent to the resort I was at in Daytona(thank you Carl).I received it and was able to swing it at the Altamonte Springs softball camp.I let anyone who wanted the use it swing it.I'm by no means a smasher but after the first game I got a good a feel with this bat with three singles and a double,first single was fielders choice .Second game two home-runs,two triples and a hard line drive single.The third game,triple,walk,single and then two intentional walks.Last game two triples and three singles. Obviously I had a good weekend swinging the fossil.I won't say that it is better than the ultra11 but it sure impressed me and my team mates.
From what I read maybe Alan aka Tri18 can get one of these bats to compare to the other senior bats and give his input.

Discussion: ASA vs 1.21

Personally a senior bat(1.21)will last me a long time, obviously I'm not a masher.If the new ASA standard bats are a bit better than a the 1.20's and I'm assuming durability would be better than the senior bats.Would it not make sense for a masher to swing the asa only bats? I do realize that the new asa only bats have only been out for a short time so durability is still in question.As far as price most of asa only bats are priced equal to the senior bats. Just thinking out loud!

Discussion: Altamonte Springs, Florida, 2013 Winter Softball Camp

Thanks Bruce.....I got on to the site.Not to much going on at this time on it. If I hadn't planned the cruise I would have registered for the Classic Spring Training in Jacksonville. Maybe another year if I can get the wife to agree.
I'm actually planning on staying over night at Jacksonville on my way down Feb 12th.Now if there was an off chance that I could tag up with some people on the 12th and get some hitting in I would come down a day earlier??? I'd just have to make sure the wife is occupied(that could be costly)

Thanks surf88....I'm trying to register on the Classic Spring Training site . It's telling me "Currently your account is waiting for approval from a staff member. Once an administrator has approved your account you will get access to this forum."
Hopefully this won't take long. It would be great to meet up with some players to do some bp when in Florida.

Discussion: Altamonte Springs, Florida, 2013 Winter Softball Camp

Thanks for the info guys. I've now have heard a lot of bad reviews on this camp. I've got a cruise out of Miami that leaves on Feb 14th and back on the 18th. Is there any other softball training camps around Florida either two weeks before or after these dates? I'm driving down from Ontario,Canada. It would be nice to get some softball time when I'm down there.
