Discussion: Reebok Melee

Not sure who ever decided that making a bat handle flex was good thing, but it really isn't. The more a handle flexes the less the walls of the bat compress and the less rebound. Maybe somebody was watching the two guys on seniorsoftballbatreviews, but let me assure you when they talk about standing on the handle to make it flex more they are clueless.

Discussion: Reebok Melee

I'm with Kreugs on the Psycho. My 28 Supermax has 1200 cuts on it and I actually used it instead of my Reebok at the last tournament. It is probably 30-40' short of the Reebok but the sweetspot is huge and 360-380' is far enough :-)

Discussion: Reebok Melee

My first 29EL Reebok lasted just under 300 swings. Same as my first Macenko Combat 29 EL. The 2nd and 3rd Combats were good for 600. These bats are only used in 70+ weather. I also only hit 44-375 Senior League balls or 44-400 MicroCells. Just for Reference, I broke a Resmondo Mutant in less than 500 swings and a Worth 454 Reload in 400.
I also try to never hit the ball square, much preferring to cut the ball. Cutting the ball will way prolong the life of a bat vs. hitting it square.
IMO, the Miken Ultra and Worth Senior bats are crap. The end load Reebok has the best pop and about 65% of the Combats life span. While I strongly dislike the small knob on the Reebok, it is my favorite senior bat so far.

Uh, the trips to Crawford were not vacations. It was known as the Southern White House and was often used to entertain foreign leaders.
They were working trips not vaca's. But then trying to reason with an Obama voter is definitely the definition of insanity.

Mad Dog is absolutely correct on this one, DO NOT HIT Classic M's with your senior bats. I would suggest the Classic Plus balls or just a plain 44-375 synthetic.
Happy New Year everyone!!!!
May your 2012 softball season be played with passion and integrity with lots of fun and friendship mixed in!

Discussion: correct/incorrect dugouts

Mad Dog, pure genius! tg69 that's a great idea for your new rule book.
Rascals for the outfielders to speed up the game. Personally I think the dugout should be awarded based on run differential in odd numbered innings in tournaments played on the full moon. Carry on. :-)

Discussion: COLD WEATHER BAT DAMAGE

Yeah, thanks Kevin, now maybe the troll will chase after you. Be prepared to explain how you saw this testing first hand. Also be prepared to tell the troll where you bought the test gear and who certified it's accuracy along with listing everyones degrees in softball testing technology. Make sure it is all certified, notorized and sworn to on a copy of senior softball magazine. Otherwise have a nice day. :-)

BTW then prepare for the second round of inquiry, IJS

Normally I refuse to feed the trolls, which is why I answered the trolls question before he asked it?
Yet he still comes on here and whines aout not having substantiation of the numbers I posted.
Why don't you ask Kevin, aka Tatooball? In case you didn't notice you are the only one who can't accept what is factual information. But of course you don't care one way or the other. For a stinking troll any attention is good attention.

the ball compression increases approximately 5 lbs for every degree under 72 and lessens 5 lbs for every degree above 72.

For the math challenged
44-375 @ 72 becomes 44-400 @ 67 degrees & 44-525 @ 42 degrees
44-285 @ 90 degrees

Discussion: Anyone else swing utrip bats?

Bruce, The Supermax bats have a full ounce end load. The Maxload bats have a half ounce which would be more like your Freak Plus. In my opinion you don't want the supermax bats for bp. The Worth Reload bats have a half ounce as well. My 28.5 Titan Reload feels very similar to my 29 EL Combat and thats what I swing in BP.

Discussion: On My Honor 2

A little perspective on rolled vs shaved bats.
In the USSSA Conference the acceptable compression is 220 or above. A new Easton tests around 400. A Miken Ultra II around 180. It took very little time for the cheaters to figure out how to shave a bat to pass at 220 and be good to use for an entire tournament. Someone who ONLY ROLLS his bats had two Eastons fail at 160 and 146. Thats right only rolled and way exceeding an Ultra II. Yes a vast majority of players have rationalized that rolling is ok. This does not make it right. Personally I think that those who roll their bats should have to wear pink tutu's when they play because they sure as hell aren't men. Why is under 40 softball so filled with cheaters?
Because they were raised by little wussies that cheat in senior softball now. My God, good balls, great bats and you little girls still feel the need to cheat, pathetic.

I will not cheat, do not swing rolled or shaved bats or bats hit on a tree or any other illegitimate way to break them in or alter them.
The time has come to demand integrity in softball at every level.

I'm not sure who declared Ray Demarini the god of all softball knowledge, but you girls are free to keep swinging your little fast pitch bats and I'll keep winning every home run derby I enter. :)

Discussion: Lighter Bats vs Heavier Bats II

Al33, I'm your size 6'2" 250 and I can definitely hit it further with a heavier bat. More suits my swing. The longest hrs I've ever hit have been with
a very end loaded 30 oz Vanadium, a 29 FL MM Gear 10", a 29 oz Freak Plus and a JH120 28.5. I'm easily 20' short with my 27.5 oz JH120 compared to the 28.5 and the other bats beat the 28.5. It is all about swing type and what works for you.

Discussion: Lighter Bats vs Heavier Bats II

Here's one area I don't ever see mentioned in this discussion. When I cut the ball [backspin] a lighter bat tends to deflect off of the softball. The heavier bat drives through it better. Now, if you are the kind of hitter who likes to hit it square, the lighter bat might be your better option as it compresses the walls on a square hit instead of deflecting away. Make sense?
