Discussion: Combat 52 CAL Frank Henry

52 cal Frank Henry is not a senior bat. It is a no warranty USSSA bat that does not have the 2013 stamp on it.

Discussion: combat Centenarian

Senior bats are hotter than most bats and with hotness you sacrifice durability. Sometimes you get a bad bat and it will break prematurely. IMO with composite bats you have to start out slowly, 25 or so swings at 1/2 speed, 25 or so swings at 3/4 speed, before you start swinging at full speed. This helps to break in the fibers more evenly which limits the weak spots, which cause breaking. Bats must be rotated after every swing and not used for bp after break-in, or in temps below 60. I have an original Combat (gray) that sees game use only and is still going strong. I have boken USSSA and ASA bats, but all were in 50 degree and below weather.

Discussion: Tournment Pitcher from NY looking to join a team

BBS for ASA is 98, all other associations except Senior use the 1.20bpf which have BBS of 100+. Most seniors have been playing this game for 30+ years and we have seen many different stunts over the years. My pitcher turns 60 this year and I have watched him eat up many a young stud. The good hitters adjust and hit their pitch, not yours.Experienced old farts like us don't fall for gimmicks, we've seen them all. Hiding the ball might work in hardball where the pitch is coming at 90+, but in softball your not gonna fool anybody, who has any experience. Good luck, and I know you will enjoy senior softball .

You got a bad bat. Contact the seller and see if they will make it right. I had a Worth 454 that broke in a couple of weeks with about 200 swings on it, and they replaced it. My Centenarian has about 250 swings on it with no marks on the barrel and is killing the ball.

Discussion: ASA vs 1.21

New ASA bats are made for .52/300 ball, if you hit .44/375's with them I doubt they will last long. 1.20bpf bats should still be hotter than the ASA bats. ASA dropped the testing swing speed from 85mph to 80mph, changed to the .52/300 ball, but batted ball exit speed cannot exceed 98mph. 1.20bpf have an exit speed of 100+. New 2031 stamp USSSA bats are supposed to get hotter faster and blow up quicker.

Discussion: Best website for titanium necklaces?

I wore one faithfully for 2 years due to a herniated disc in my neck. Thought that it was helping with circulation. Took it off a year ago and nothing changed. IMO placebo effect. Neck pain and stiffness come and go, no difference from when I was wearing the Phiten. Looked good though.

Discussion: Update from USSSA National Convention

Happy Thanksgiving Stick,
Did your UIC mention anything about the new stamp bats for next year? I heard a rumor on another site that it would only be enforced for USSSA sanctioned tournaments, and up to the director in league ball for one more year.

Hi Jeff,

I heard the same thing about the insurance, USSSA bats once boken in are pretty close to senior bats(at least for me)and I would play in a USSSA tourney as long as they tested the bats. Shaved and rolled bats have become the norm in USSSA. My league team plays in an over 50 ASA tourney in Port Hope, Mi. every year with ASA bats and the Worth green dot ball(marshmallow) and have a great time.

Miken MV1 for USSSA and a Mizuno Wrath 98 for ASA. I have a Worth Duo2, Mizuno Blackout, and a Combat Avarice for USSSA next year. MV1 can hang with my senior bats.

We don't know that Benny is Eric. Benny Barnes broke his ankle in 1974 and required 3 surgeries. Benny also wore #31, while Robert Newhouse wore #44.

"As a lifelong Cowboys fan from the early Cotton Bowl days, I can say with a all sincerity, the Pokes never had a DB named Eric Barnes that played for them for ten years"

Bennie Barnes played DB for Dallas from '72-'82 and graduated from Stanford. He now works in San Pablo, Ca.(Info from Wikopedia). He is 61 years old.

Discussion: Combat Ambush vs Combat Twilight

Although the Ambush is a very good bat and the customer service is excellent, every new bat that comes out makes the same claim. IMO most of the senior bats are pretty darn close in all 3 categories. It all comes down to what feels good in your hands. With proper break-in and then game use only, a bat should last a long time. My bats rank: 1)28oz. EL Combat DaBomb Original 2)28oz. BAL Worth 454 3)27oz. White Centenarian 4) 27oz. EL Ambush 5) 27oz. Demarini Blue The One 6)28oz. Geezer. I am 59, 5'11" ,185, a line drive hitter who hits the occasional HR. I can go yard with any of these bats. Here in Detroit, Mi. the top performing bats are the Mikens and Reeboks. We hit Dudley Classic m's(40/325)
