Discussion: 50 MAJOR & MAJOR PLUS COMBINED

A couple of things here, the other association that does not have major+ still has great parity between the teams. We are major and beat major+ teams often, and the beat us the same. Are there some teams that get beat on a regular basis? Yes but in every division you have teams that get beat a lot more than they win.

Tim you hit the nail right on the head. If you are over 50 and can't afford to pay for yourself you should probably get a part time job on the weekend. Being that close to retirement and not being able to support your own hobbies isn't a good thing.

I know being a better player you are used to having someone pay for everything but sponsors have left the game and aren't coming back. Maybe it is a good time to be grateful we had them in the first place. I know I could buy a really nice house with the money I have spent over the years, I have no regrets but I am not going to continue to do this on 50+ year olds.
I had 1 guy that played golf 2 times a week at 120.00 a day but would call and complain he couldn't afford to split a hotel room with somebody for 2 nights, I don't think he is playing anywhere now.

Discussion: How to get more teams willing to play in the Major-plus division

There's been major teams that won and did not move up. They also returned with almost the exact same team.

There is no procedure, every company knows it will work no one has figured out how to make it work.

1.21 bpf is just that. Companies can increase durability, sweet spot handle flex etc.... There is only 1 way to make a bat hit farther and still pass the test. Of all of the bats I tested none have figured it out.

Discussion: Bat Flex

Tex Tran, what you were seeing is bending modes. There are 4 in a bat and everyone has been trying to eliminate at least 1 for over 20 years now.

Someone has figured it out.

These guys run full speed for the month before and 12 days during the tournament, and at every field there is more problems than most of us could handle. Posting scores is at the bottom of a very long list of things to do when trying to keep a tournament running on time.

Brian this is an outright lie. I never talked to you and I NEVER said do not tell any one that the bat broke, you can come on here and bad mouth me all you want you are a liar. I do remember my conversation with the owner of the bat. As a matter of fact when I got back on sunday I had an email from the owner to contact him about buying another bat of another brand. If I am lying why would this man send me that email. I will send them to taits to verify if you would like.

The force it would have taken to do this damage the box would have been destroyed. The box was not. I also would have gotten a credit for the bat so cost is not an issue.

Yes I do remember the bats I sold to your group at wholesale so you guys could make some money for your team, sorry my bad. I also remember replacing some of the ones with paint defects at no charge, my bad again. So the only issue I address is the bat was damaged and I have pictures if you would like to see them.

Well Brian the ABS plastic end cap was smashed in when the bat was received here. Abs is not easy to damage. Pictures were sent to the owner and we discussed the bat. I don't know what happened to the bat but it is damaged in a way that it would not be replaced.

It appears that the bat was smashed into the ground violently.

Good luck in Vegas.

Wayne I am going to go out on a limb here and say your post may have been deleted because of what someone else posted in the thread and not what you posted.

Many threads get deleted because of others jumping into the thread. Did a Dudley rep post in your thread? That could have been the reason.

Nancy call me when you have time. 845 532 2668.

Ozone all good questions, some I will answer.

As far as performance of the bat I will leave that up to players that are customers. I wont say how good it is because it is my bat.

This bat passed the bpf test with plenty of room to spare. Because of the materials I use the performance and durability is where it needs to be. This particular bat was intended for big power hitters that broke a lot of bats. As it all came together and testing done it turns out that anyone can excel with this bat. A couple of key points. This bat will never get a soft as other senior bats. When broken in it is not stiff it just won't get as soft. It will feel like a combat or miken half way broken in. As time goes on the bat feels the same, but the sweetspot will continue to get larger to the point that the whole barrel will hit well. Now it may not feel good when you hit the taper but it will hit good.

As for future bats, I was in meetings yesterday all day going over options. As of now I have 20 bats with 9 finished, they include utrip,asa,fastpitch and little league and of course bigger barrel more balanced senior. We just put this bat out and haven't even received our first big shipment so it will be a few more months for the next one. Once that happens it will change. First and for most we have to prove to the customer that this bat is the real deal. No sense in making new bats for customers we don't have. The improvements I have already worked on successfully are sweetspot and a bat without an end cap, both finished. This bat if you roll it, it will break in 100 swings, the bat without a end cap will break inside and just wont hit the ball. Without an endcap there will be now way to shave it also.

As far as the worst bat I made. The original bat that passed certification was 50 ft longer than this on, I toned this bat down because it was to good. Don't even bother to ask if that one will be made because it never will, end of story. 3 of them sit in my living room in the corner. Good luck trying to get them.

Thank you

good luck in Vegas.

Indeed, and not embarrassed to say I had tears in my eyes writing that.
