Evil 44/375 compared to Tattoo 44/375
We have been using this evil for several years and a great ball. We have two teams, playing in Massachusetts Bay State League and A and B. Someone change it to Tattoo 44/375 and we are really disappointed. Ball goes no where. We are using old evils out of ball bag for games as they are better. Has anyone else had this problem. thanks, Bill Ayer Windham Elders and Windham A's

They are 44/375's. We use the 52/300's in our regular league and found they perform very well except for one field where they are kept in a metal equipment box. When at 80 I can hit those 52/300's 250-260' that is not a bad ball. That was using a PST R&B and a Miken Triad3.

I just came back from retesting the Tattoo's today. Took a fresh doz out of my basement and went down to the park to hit them. They perform very well as expected. Not sure why they are having a problem with them.
We have a practice game on Monday and will break out a couple of fresh ones and see how they perform and will let you know.

I have found so far the new bats and the old metal bats. We have one player on our team that crushes them with a Raw Steel and a couple of others are having good luck with the Demarini 375 (One Piece)

The least expensive, best performing Asa bat for the 52/300 is the Miken Ultra in either balanced or end loaded version. At under $200 with a warranty, they are hard to beat. If you need some help you can contact me at

Got to use the Tattoo's 44/375 and didn't find anything wrong with them. They do have a deader sound than the Evil's which I would contribute to the Composite cover but for distance they flew pretty good.

Not sure what their problem with them are.
