Discussion: 27 oz Nightmare video

TerryN you are welcome.
The Blue Flame I am using is about 3 years old.
It is extremely adjustable and is currently set to throw a 12' arc. As its names implies [UPM45] it pitches to 45 mph. The Black Flame machine UPM60 throws up to 60mph.
You can quite easily dial in whatever arc you want and it is very consistent. The only variable being the weight of each ball.

Discussion: Nightmare bat approved

This bat is the real deal. Those of you that know me know I have swung just about every bat out there. My favorite bat is now the AD Starr Nightmare. I have 750 swings on it and it is amazing. In fact I have ordered a second one already.

Discussion: Hitting

some great points in this thread
1. Practice with purpose!
2. Limit your rounds to 20-30 swings.
I think it is difficult to stay focused for more than 25 or so swings a round.
3. Hit at targets in the infield. Five gallon buckets make great targets and help you keep the ball down. In the game the confidence soars when you have "practiced with purpose!"

Discussion: Worth legit

Paco, if the end cap is just the really thin part of the end cap..... that happened to one of mine as well. I used Loctite marine epoxy on 7 Legit handles with no issues. BUT, when I tried it on the end cap [twice] it did not hold. Worth informed me that because I had tried to fix it myself that they would not fix it for me. So before you try to epoxy it, call Worth. Good luck.

Discussion: New DBO HR rules for 2014

One thing not mentioned in this discussion is playing conditions and how much easier it is to hit the home runs at altitude. Dry conditions and altitude add up to huge home run numbers. In the southeast, with heat indexes in triple digits and high humidity it is a little more difficult. While for some of us it is still pretty easy, for most it is not. As far as USSSA goes the major division limit is 16 and the A division is 12. If you want to insist on run limits and home run limits the current number needs to be higher in Plus. I think maybe the problem is trying to make the rules equal with vastly different playing conditions across the country.

Discussion: Worth legit

I think the Legit is the best of the 3. The Legit is a fantastic bat in distance, feel and durability. The Barrage, Melee or Ultra 2 Maxload 2 piece for for EL.
The Big Cat 2 Piece Ultra for a 1 oz end load is fantastic.
The Legit is very easy to hit with being balanced and to me does not sacrifice distance. The end loads are great but harder to swing if you are tired.

Discussion: Cant decide on a senior bat

I rate both of these equal in distance and give the edge to the Worth in durability and without question the Worth in feel.

Discussion: Cant decide on a senior bat

The Legit is the best balanced Senior bat I have ever hit.
The Ultra 2 Maxload is a fantastic bat with a 1/2 oz endload. Either of these two is a great choice.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: 2 Rules that are somewhat unclear

5.5(3) MERCY RULE FOR 50+ THRU 70+ MAJOR-PLUS (ONLY)
If a team is ahead by 15 or more runs at any time after five innings have
been completed, or four and one-half innings with the home team ahead,
the game shall be declared a complete regulation game.

AT ANY TIME would mean that the visitors ahead by 15 in the top of the 6th...... game over. MAKES NO SENSE.

5.4(2) INTERNATIONAL TIE-BREAKER RULE
Teams start each half-inning with a runner on second base. The runner is the
last batter of the previous inning whose turn at bat had been completed,
assuming a position on second base. No substitute or courtesy runner may
replace him until he has reached third base. EFFECT: If the last batter of the
previous inning cannot continue to play because of injury, illness, etc., he will
be declared out and the next previous batter will be the tie-breaker runner.

If the open inning ends in a tie..... are the extra innings open or subject to the 5/7 run limit? The rule states that the last inning of the game is open. Does that rule carry over to extra innings?

Discussion: Reebok Barrage update

Clean Up, as is often the case the last Barrage that was being tested was purchased by someone who wanted a bat that was game ready. Team 1 Sports will be playing for the 5th time this year on Saturday and we have been spending a lot of time hitting with our Mikens.

Discussion: Barrage or Legit

Lefty,
They are both in my top 3.
I have always been an end load swinger.....
but the Legit is so forgiving and so much easier
to swing if you have to hit that tough 15 footer :-)
There is only one down side to the Legit. You have
to buy epoxy for the knob when it comes off.
Either way you will not go wrong.

Discussion: NEW Miken Triad Blackout Senior bat !!!

DieselDan, he meant
The Reebok Barrage
The Miken Ultra2 two piece
The Combat Ambush
The Triad Blackout takes a long time break in and would not be a good choice for a base hitter.

HJ, it has not broken yet! I put a lot of swings on this bat when it was new and took a few swings with it again the other day. It is much better now.

73 teams in the 50's for December. 69 teams in the 60+ categories for December. Somebody is doing something right.

Discussion: HR rule - why????

There is a reason that the monthly tournament series that I play in averages 60-70 teams. No home run limits, no runs per inning limits and teams are fairly seeded so that you play competitive games every month. And you know your schedule [4 games] a week before the tournament.

Discussion: cold weather bats

The 52 300 is the best option in cooler weather.
It is not nearly as affected by the temperature.
