Topic: Bats
Discussion: Flared or cone knob ???

As best I can tell the flared knob is legal in senior softball. Many of the players have them on their bats.
Not sure about 'rolled' as I how that relates to the knob. I do remember a bat called the axe which had a axe handle and we started to use it at the Huntsman games but the ump told us it was not legal in senior softball. However the flare I put on my bat is more like a cone...guess it is one in the same.

Discussion: Flared or cone knob ???

After a few weeks with a the flared knob my hitting has improved. Seems to be more gentle on my hands. So how my hitting has gone from really bad to not-so-bad....

PS: This new Veteran bat has turned out to be a great bat and wondered if any of you guys have also hit one ?

ASA rule change: ASA now allows cone/fared knobs. They made the change starting 2010 according our P&R ASA director.

I ordered one on line and will give it a try. Also ordered a new bat so maybe all the newest will change my hitting for the good LOL.

What is I hold the bat in the normal way ? what would cone flare do ? I have heard it makes it easier on the hands to swing. Is this true ?

Discussion: good wood, bad game

I played in a fun game with wood bats. The fences at this park are 250 and even some of the young guys could not hit it out. We even used a 47/525 ball but to no avail. Using wood bats changed the game for the worse IMO and I would never want to play in a wood league full time.

Discussion: picher's safety equipment

I got a face mask from a company called ripit. It is very open and light. Bad news is the chin pad came off right away but I glued it back onl.
For the legs I went to play it again sports and picked up a pair for $15.

Discussion: Launch 510

I was told that the 510 cracks faster than the other senior bats. Is this true. In our league only 70 plus can use the 510 or U2

Discussion: Another bat/ball thread

I remember a long time ago a city league used orange balls. There were great in the day light but very hard to see at night.

Discussion: True Home Run Hitter

I agree with the statement that the long ball is for the true HR hitters. In the winter league I play in we have a rule that only guys 70 plus can use the U2 and since that only the true big hitters are parking it over the fence. We have a handful that can park it once in a while and one guy that hits it 350ft almost every time. That guy I heard has starting using a wood bat so with our fences at 275 it will be interesting to see how that works out. Overall the U2 rule has balanced out our league and kept the HR to those that can really do it. On a side note I am not really behind the idea of our big hitter using wood since I like watching the ball hitting the top of the trees that outline the field.

Discussion: Is this true ?

at the fields today someone said the U2 is hotter than all the other senior bats because it is granfather into senior softball and the other bat companies cannot make a bat on par with U2 and that is why the U2 is hotter. So is this true ?
