Discussion: Sore Toes

I like Lite Tanels.Get them about a half size larger than your regular shoe size. Get a good pair of inserts, and you should be good to go. I bought mine at Reno last year. If you are going to that tournament, stop by their display and try some on.

Discussion: THE "HOT BALL" DILEMA

Doerbaum, you bring up an interesting topic that has been debated many times on this board. The composite bats of today, and the 44-375 balls that we now use. As compared with the aluminum bats of yesteryear and the balls that were used then. The 47-525 Red Dots or the Super Blues that were used as late as 2005 or so, were golf balls. The Demarini double walls were a technological breakthrough similar to what the composites of today have been, except they were aluminum. As a result, the balls were dumbed down to the 44-375s that we have today. I would gladly go back to the double walls and the balls that we used then. The longest shots I have hit, or seen hit, were with that combination.

Would it be possible to add a "hot link" to these tutorials. It would make it a lot easier to navigate.

Discussion: Perl and the guys from Pensacola

I will be visiting my daughter again this year in Pensacola. I hit with you guys last year at Exchange Park. Do you folks have a pickup game at the same place this year? I will be there the week of May 11. Great tune up for Reno. There was also a tournament that weekend last year. Don't know if that is a possibility, but would be interested. I play 70 major. Regards, Ron

Discussion: old miken freak plus

You could always do what I did. I gave Big Mike and the Wounded Warriors an original Freak and a Synergy Plus. You then could write it off as a charitable contribution. Just an option.

Discussion: Pioneer park

Well it looks as if we have been moved from Hunter to Pioneer park in Mesquite. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? Is there also a baseball field that will be utilized there?

Discussion: Required Face Masks

Pitchers,and other infielders should wear appropriate protection. I may be in the minority here, but I like the game as is. It supposed to be somewhat dangerous. If you ask the average Joe what slowpitch softball is about, he will tell you it's a game played by girls, or overweight guys that are drunk. This is a game, at least in tournaments, that is played with very good athletes with skills that have been honed over many years. Most of us accept the fact, and actually like, that the ball is going to be hit over 100 mph. Wear good protection.

Jack, Are you coming to Mesquite/St.George? We will also be in Vegas and Reno this spring. This could be a special season for us and would love you to document some of it. We won the winter worlds in Phoenix and didn't have 1 picture to show for it.

Discussion: Miken White vs. Big Cat

Haven't hit the Dudley, so I can't comment on that bat. However, I have the other two Mikens. My white 2 piece is from 2013. One of the earlier releases. It was a log for a very long time. It finally broke in after a couple of months and probably 500 swings. I have a little power, so that wasn't the problem.I bought a Big Cat last year in June and it broke in a much quicker. I have not used the white 2 piece since. There is a noticeable difference in end load weight, but you have to compare them side by side to notice. I too swing a 27oz in both models. I really like the Big Cat. It seems to fit my swing a little better than anything else.

Discussion: Senior HyperZ softball bat

Any board members hit with this yet? Not the prototype, but the actual 2015 "on the street" model.If so, how does it compare with what you swing?

Discussion: New Hyper Z pretty impressive!

So tatooball, are you suggesting that the 1 way to do this has not been figured out? If so, please share with us what that procedure is.

Not for Christmas. Had some fried when I was in New Orleans many years ago. Tasted real good.

Discussion: Thanks for the info

I purchased a pair of 3n2 turf high tops in 2012.Although they worked pretty well, had a little trouble with my feet again during that time, and went back to Tanels. Purchased a new pair of lite low cut Tanels in Reno, and have been very satisfied. This would be my 3rd pair of Tanels,and I am sticking with them at this point. If you do decide on the 3n2s, they run really small. At least a half size, and more like a full size on some models.

Discussion: BATS COMPARE

LP, I felt the same way for a long period of time. I beat the hell out of the white for quite a while. It finally came around, but it took far longer than most players will tolerate. My understanding is the next batch of whites broke in a bit easier. I bought mine in June of 2013, shortly after they came out.

Discussion: BATS COMPARE

If you like an endload, I would definitely try the Big Cat. I really could not tell the difference between the white 2 piece and the Big Cat until I swung them side by side. The 1/2 oz. extra was then noticeable. My white took forever to break in, and I have a little power. The Big Cat, not as long. I didn't change weights between all 3. Hope this helps.

Discussion: BATS COMPARE

I have all three. Still have the red from 2 years ago. Bought the white in 2013 and the Big Cat this year. The red I do not use as much these days, as well as the white. I think the Big Cat fits my swing a little better, and with the 1oz endload seems to pop the ball a little farther than the other 2. All are very good bats. It just depends on preference.

Discussion: Best bat for a line drive hitter

I really don't think there are certain bats for "line drives" or "home runs". The difference between a line drive and a home run, or a ground ball for that matter, does not have much to do with a certain bat. It is where the bat contacts the ball. Most of the senior bats are fairly close as far as their exit speeds are concerned. It really comes down to feel and how a particular bat would fit your swing. It just really has to do with experimentation. Find something you can get consistent with and stay with it.
