Discussion: Best leadoff hitter

When I played with Northern Ohio Printing in 50 Major last couple years I believe I hit behind one of the best lead off hitters. Ray seemed like it was a automatic double when he came up. Being the 2nd hitter that makes my life easier when you have a guy on 2nd with no outs.

Discussion: Combat 52 CAL Frank Henry

I have a 27oz EL and was swinging it yesterday in the cages. We were using 44/375 balls. The feel reminded me of my Combat (black) Centenarian. The ball jumped off it really well, but I won't be able to really tell much until I swing it outside in the spring. I put 75 swings on it and it showed now signs of wear.

Discussion: 2 Piece Bats

Any feedback on the two-piece Monsta senior bat the "Fossel". Talked to Carl from Monsta and he seems like a good dude. Anybody swing one yet?

Discussion: combat Centenarian

I have had very good luck with these bats. I had one that had over 800 swings before it broke. The one I have now has over 300 swings and doesn't even have scuff marks on it. Combat is a very good company to work with, they will help you out if they can.
Good luck

Discussion: New ASA Ultra softball bat

This is a very good bat for those senior players that like the feel of the Ultra ll, with more durability.
They have a 1 year warranty and they sell for around 199.00. I've got about 75 swings on my 27oz and you can feel it starting to open up. I will be putting on another 75 on it today and will give a update
Later.

Discussion: DeMarini The One Senior

I picked up one of the 2012 blue Senior One bats from bats unlimited for $119. I have about 150 swings on it and there is not much paint left on the barrel, but there is no stress cracking and the performance is very good. I suggest if you do purchase one go heavier than you usually swing. The bat swings very light.Not a bad deal.

Discussion: new combat centenarian......short

I purchased a white centenarian and after about 5 swings paint started to come off. after about 25 more swings big chunks of paint came off. At know time was the performance of the bat effected. It hit great and felt great from the get go. My only concerns about the paint chipping off was the ability to use the bat in tournament play.I contacted Rob Kauffman and Combat and they asked me to send them pictures of my bat. About 4 days ago i received my new bat. I've taken about 50 swings with it and there is no paint issues. Mr.Kauffman and Combat were very understanding and super to work with.
THANK YOU COMBAT

Anybody try One of these bats yet? I use the Bass Pinky in my NSA league and I'm very happy with it. I was wondering if the Crippler is anything like it? Thanks for your input in advance.

Discussion: FORT MYERS WINTER NATIONAL

I just played in my first senior tourney. Only thing I can say is "WOW". Our team (Northern Ohio Printing from Ohio) ended up 3-3. I met some great people and played some ball with some super guys. I'm looking forward to our upcoming tournaments. I'd like to thank our sponsors Gary and Kevin and also our coach bubsey and also to mr. Hoffman for helping teach the senior game to us young 49 year olds. Haha ! Everyone was class. I'd like to give a shout out to the fellas from Kentucky, new York, Maryland and Florida. See ya soon.

Discussion: NEW WHITE VETERAN BAT

Just got back from hitting with my 50 & over tourney team. I was swinging my GBA 26oz veteran bat. It was about 50 degrees out. The bat had about 75 swings on it prior to today. This bat is starting to open up really good now. The ball was going 325 plus with nice easy swings. Maybe this maybe is a cold weather senior bat? Haha!

Discussion: Miken Durability

Had a brand new 29oz Miken Ultra ll. Pulled it out last Saturday to hit, the weather was about 70 degrees. The bat broke on the 20th hit. The first bucket of balls. The bat had no marks on it except for the side that was smashed. I called Miken and explained to them what happened. They gave me a RA number and said they would look at it, but couldn't promise anything. Well I heard from Miken and they are going to replace my bat for me. THANK YOU MIKEN !

Discussion: UltraII vs. Worth Toxic XXX vs Combat MM

Just got the hook up on a senior toxic with about 50 swings on it. I took 5 swings with 44/.375 balls. I hit 4 balls about 350 plus. Is this bat that good? Hit with the Miken ultra ll, Ultra ll maxload and the Ultra the day before and they had good pop, but nothing like the Toxic. There is no cracks on Toxic but some paint chip. Will this be a issue in tournament play? What are my options with this bat?
Thanks

I just took some swings with my GBA senior bat and it felt pretty good. Hit a couple out about 330ish. You can tell it needs some more hits on it.

Discussion: What bats are legal in senior ball?

I got the lady virus in a trade. I had a extra MV1. Just got back from hitting and I used a ultra ll, ultra, ultra ll maxload and the Lady virus. They all performed well, but if you can get a hold of LV and it doesn't bother you it's 33" you should invest in one. They maybe more durable than the ultras and possibly more pop.
Good luck

I have a combat lady virus that is 1.20 certified. Would it be legal to use in ssusa? It's also 33/26.
