Topic: Bats
Discussion: What if bat?

These CORE bats ( ASA, USSSA, Senior and Baseball ) have unique qualities that separate performance and durability concerns from the current antiquated manufacturing process. Our goal is to show the softball/baseball market that once again it is the USA taking the lead and replacing 20 year old technology with something that will work better, cleaner and longer. Our bats are greener, smarter and more advanced in every way.
CORE bats cannot be rolled, shaved or altered in any way and with their unique performance it will not be needed.

Paco13,
If there is a delay it because GSC has moved to their own factory (USA). You should call Bill and make sure you are on the list if you are waiting for a replacement bat.
I don't know of anyone that has any issue with GSC but I do know the China bats caused a great deal of headache.

Out hit in terms of lasting much longer than any bat. Hitting performance will not be a concern.

Discussion: What if bat?

So what if there is bat, not composite, not alloy but a new material category. What if this bat was made 100% in the USA and not only outhit any senior bat on the field and came with a full year warranty. What if this bat was impossible to shave or roll because it has no traditional end cap and is solid thought-out.
What if this bat was ready this summer……

Discussion: How many shaved bats in SS

Found this on another web site. looks like there is already a fix to the shaving issue.

The new system was devolved at the University of Arizona. It is much more than just a chip in the bat as it uses a very complex database with manufactures. This system is very advanced and does more than just preventing shaved and rolled bats from entering the field of play for it also aids the manufactures in other data input as well. Bat doctors will still be able to shave and roll bats however those bats will not be able to bypass the system and make it to the field of play. Many if not all the associations are already on board with the system. This program is not for sale or debate and information about the system is not available to the public. It will be part of bats used in association play.

What percentage of bats in senior softball do you think are shaved?

Due to the inconsistency of China we at GSC decided to have all our bats manufactured in the United States. Our Veteran Bat (Coachbuy.com) will be available in approximately 90 days. This is great news for the quality factor. Stay tuned for update information

I think there is a way and the issue at hand is oversees production. It is my belief that a company can make this bat in the USA and figure out how to make it work.

Discussion: Spirit ASA

My two teammates do not agree. They tell me that the Spirit is far better than other ASA bats. Which is why here in Sun City that bat is heavy in use.

I have hit the Speed and it is a geat bat. However the Spirit is a tad better. This comes from the team more than me.

Many in our league use the Spirit bat and some had question if it was ASA approved. Yes it is as you see on www.softball.org (ASA site).

Discussion: veteran bat

I am a single hitter but others on the team think it is close or same as other senior bats. On the new 2 piece we have about 300 plus hits and it is doing well. For me it has great pop but I am not a power hitter.

I think one of the bat companies is in the process of moving production back to the USA.

Here's hoping one of these companies can make a true USA bat. In the meantime we have to get what we can.

I heard some say Miken has moved production to China. Maybe someone here can shed some light on that?

Reading all the talk about senior bats I was wondering if you care if the bat is made in China or the USA. If there was a pure USA made bat (I don't know if the UII is) would you buy one provided it had the performance.
