new bats
if you like the combat dirty but can not wait get the gray combat same bat with new paint.Senior softball players will buy anything that is said to be the best and iam one of them.Dont you guys hate those videos where they test bats oh that one went 400ft on my second swing.Give me and everyone a break here 400ft is a long way and some of the swings just make me laugh iam sure some guys can but not many.

Gary-I watched in person when these guys hit-both Steve and Fred were hitting absolute bombs into the parking lot. Fred Purvis can bench press 400 lbs and Steve Imlay is well known for his power. They were going that far.

Webbie, you might be right about the bombs but let's just say the had the Melee or Toxic or the Demarini or the other combat line.. would they not be hitting them the same distance???? Just saying that if you want to sell me a bat, tell me I could get 500 swings out of it and it can perform like what's in my bag already.. I'm in..

swing-I have hopes for some longevity from a bat again someday. I'm tired of spending $1000 bucks a year on bats.

$1000??? I'm tired of spending half that a year for the bat of the month club. These manufactures really know how to work us old guys. There is so much conflicting info out there. And we eat a promise of 10 more feet up.
Guess I'm just as gullible as anybody.

I think Webbie figured out how to reduce his cost per year. He kept walking around and asking players if their bag was too heavy and if they wanted to get rid of a bat or too. Not sure how effective he is going to be with the Easton Hammer and the Louisville Thumper.

Mike-I dug out my 38 oz brown Louisville Slugger for the next tournament. Besides, if I could hit like Mike, I wouldn't need a fancy bat.
