Hi Mike,
i found your website a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. Dirk was from our area and while i did not know him, many of the guys i play with did. i sent a link to all of them and had lots of good feedback about the article.
thanks,

Man let me tell you, I watched the game Monta is referring to and a lot of different guys used this bat with "outstanding" results. Some guys have never hit a ball that far in their life. Even the hits that weren't that solid were hit hard and long.
"Very nice bat."

Already breaking in my 28FL & ordered a 30FL 10" barrel to complement it.

I've not owned any of the shorter barrels but have swung them and they launch nicely.

I just noticed 4 small (1/4 inch) cracks in the yellow paint at the endcap. What did Kevin say about yours? It's too late to get him on the phone here in Az. Has anyone else seen this? I only have about 10 swings on it. Very short BP today (sore finger). Thanks for any feedback.

If your bat is one of the original 50, all have these cracks. The end plugs are forced into the end of the bat similar to a slip ring and the yellow paint does not expand so it cracjks. The new bats have a different paint on the last 1/2 inch of the bat.

That is good to know... mine did that, too, but only in one spot... thanks.
I have heard many of you raving about your new bat (Senior Gear). Did you also have the same bat before (gray version)? If so, how do they compare?

Monta,
I am also bullish on the Senior Combat line of bats, never having tried the red ones. But the new one and the gray ones have been everything advertised.
In your comparison of the new one v. any of the other ones... was it an 'apples to apples' comparison? i.e. did you compare the same weights/weight distribution, etc.?
I have (new one v. gray ones) and I have about 250 swings on the new one. It has a different feel than the gray ones (stiffer) but I don't know that this is bad thing... just different. I'm a creature of habit, so to speak, and it has taken me 2 years to fully divest myself of the Ultra 2 (Combats became available 2 years ago).
