Discussion: What does it take?

Mike it is so hard to say. I have had 3 Reeboks in the past year. The first one lasted about 375 swings and the second one 260. The one I have now has a 1/2" crack at just 160 swings. My two MM Gears lasted 600 swings each. But, I had a Supermax Psycho that after 1000 swings rivaled my senior bats and it lasted 800 more swings before breaking. I have one of the new Combat Ambush bats in my bag and it is still going at 600 swings. So, I guess if I had to put a number on it, 600 for me is a pretty durable bat. I actually broke two USSSA 454's in just 400 swings each. So I guess you could say I am pretty hard on bats. Mind you 600 swings for me would be double that or more for most.

Discussion: New Senior bat coming out!

It's called the Gnineteen.
It has a 1.21 BS factor.
It comes in two models.
One is full of hot air and slightly off balance.
The other is BE [bovine excrement] loaded.
Either one will up your skill level to that
of a keyboard hero that is smarter than anyone
who has ever stayed in a Holiday Inn Express.
So smart in fact when you have the Gnineteen
in your hands, you too will be omniscient, guaranteed. Just ask yourself and see! Have a nice day :-)

Colt, NO Buggs is not Steve Butler's Gilligan LOL. And Taits, I think it was/is a pest control business. If you want to know how obnoxious Buggs is..... he should be called Buggs19.

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.

Discussion: Bat Care

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.

Discussion: COLD WEATHER BAT DAMAGE

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.
