Discussion: stop all the whining

Tim is your team a major team or plus team. Are you against it because you can't win or can't compete?

Player for player we did not have the best players in Va but that day we had the best team. We played hard for each other and played as a team, that is why we won. Sometimes team unity can overcome and beat teams that have better players. One thing I can say is everyone on the team looked forward to beating the plus teams or at least trying to.

I don't know which issa tourney you are talking about but Manassas was a very good tourney. We won it as a major team and played both major+ teams and beat them. They did not have the best games they've played.
The other major teams all did well against them also, some won some didn't. It was 2 major teams in the finals, with a major+ team 3rd.

If you have the same bat and balance it the bat will pass. End loads are the hardest to pass and 29 oz is the hardest of all to pass.

It is real simple one bat needs to pass the first test. The moi of the bat is recorded, all of the bats need to have the same moi as the one tested or other weights need to be tested.

I will refrain to see if any of the others can answer it.

I am but I won't. They have been tested, all I will say is that all of our softballs are in compliance with what is marked on the ball.

It is actually lower than that the math is correct but a .44/375 ball is between 330 and 360 compression new. 375 is max allowable, poly cannot be controlled that closely. So if you do h math based on a 345 lb ball on average you will see they are much lower. The only ball tat is not effected by the heat is a high cor ball.

Discussion: Has the game really been toned down?

Crusher you mention the t2000 it was actually the t4000 but that is not my point. When I developed the .52/300 ball it was made to the spec's of the old super balls of yesteryear. The t4000 was a .52 cor 400 compression made of surlyn and eva. The new balls are made of poly. If you tested them side by side with todays bats you would see no difference in performance.

Back then bats didn't flex so you wanted a high cor ball to bounce off the barrel quickly, today the barrels flex so you want a low cor ball to stay on the barrel longer and make it flex.

So I agree lets bring back the super balls of years ago, because they are already here exposing average players everywhere.

The truth is most of the senior players today never hit a homerun wen they were younger, but at an advanced age can now hit them. I think that says it all. I have many friends playing now that never even tried to hit a homerun in the 80's or 90's that hit them now.

BTW I find it odd that you are on here crying about the ball still. It has been in play for over 4 years now. I made it 7 years ago.

All of my old bats hit the .52 just fine, as to why ASA changed their bat spec? I am going to take a guess at it. Maybe so players can't cry about ASA bats being less than usssa bats in performance.

Usssa and nsa both have the ,52 ball and in usssa and asa the manufactures sell more .52 than .40 and .44's.

Asa is trying to get players playing again.

BTW my favorite bat to hit the .52 with is the original anti-virus.

maddog, I have been playing senior softball now for 4 tourny's. I use a usssa bat or an asa bat. The senior bats hit the ball to far for me. Line drives in the 6 hole end up on the other side of the fence, totally stupid.

No but he does keep bugging me for one. They will not leave my possession until I am ready. Now if you want to come up and hit them you are always welcome.

Chick UNFORTUNATELY you are about 100 in line. We have been hitting them in the N.E. for a month now. Many are looking to get one.

It is a new bat not out yet. I am meeting with manufactures in the beginning of July. To date the bats hit as well as any senior bats out there but last. We have yet to break one, everything on this bat is just what a senior will want. Durability, sweetspot, performance, and great feel. As of now we are hitting farther than most with no failures.

Senior bats break in and get hotter to the point of failure, this design stays at a set compression so the performance never fades, this also makes it much more durable. I am using a material that is different than what bats are made with now so they are stronger and perform great. The sweetspot is 1 inch from the end to 1 inch from the taper.

Very soon there will be a bat out with unmatched durability, I have been hitting it for weeks now and it is ridiculous in both performance and durability. So far about 1400 swings and still going strong.

Discussion: Making a ball choice for a recreational league.

None of those ball choices will be good for that field. Here is my number if you would like to call for info. 845 532 2668.

Bruce the ASA .52 is of standard weight, only the .44 is heavier which makes no sense at all.
