Sorry - hit send too soon.
This is the Balck aluminum bat with Green Writing.
Looking for a 25, 29 or 30 ounce end loaded one - not balanced.
Let me know. Thanks.

Wow, I need spellcheck, sorry.
I meant Black with green writing and 28,29 or 30 oz end loaded.

Are you talking about the TPS Inertia?
If so go to Louisville Slugger Softball bats .com

Hey Jef,
It is the TPS Air Inertia model SB21E, but it just says AI on the bat.
I googled it before I put my post up and could not find any for sale anywhere. These were produced around 1999 - 2000 I think. Good bats, but dented and folded up fairly easy. Anyway, I also searched eBAY and Craig's List, but nothing. I know Softball Fans had a close out deal last year on the 30OZ end loads, but I still had my old one and missed out.
Anyone out there still have one?

I had one and cracked it a year ago in BP during the winter. Like the bat ok. I swing the combat now. I have a CU555 in pretty good shape.
You might try this site
Louisville Slugger [Archive] Softball Fans. Com.
This is a site devoted to old and new Louisville bats and equipment.
Good luck

Hey Jef,
Yes, Mine was a triangle with 3 flat sides, but still hit good until I finally cracked it recently. Same as all my old Demarinis. I wanted it for an aluminum bat league that I play in. I swing Combats now also on my tourney team. I like end loaded bats which is why I prefer the TPS over the more balanced Demarini aluminum.
I think that I might know you if you are in Nor Cal.
What team do you play for?
I play for Mac II.
Thanks for the info.

This spring I found an outdoors store in Smyrna, Ga, that still has many old TPS bats from the mid 90's. I bought two green Ritch's Superiors. The only down side is that they still want close to the full retail price for them, ranging between $100 and $170.

I found a Louisville Slugger TPS Model SB18 Player in my closet. I don't believe it has ever hit a ball. It has a sticker on it that says it is "grandfathered" for ASA, expires 12-31-2001. It is a dark blue color and says "Air Attack 2" on the barrel. If this bat interests you then e-mail me at norquist44@yahoo.com

Norq44 - Hey nice number. : )
Thanks for looking, I really appreciate it. I am just wanting another AI if I can find one. Maybe someone else out there has a brand new one in the garage, just like you do with the Air Attack.

Jef - I'll try to say Hi next time we are at the same event as the Blasters or Stockton 50 teams.
I'm sure we probably will know each other by sight at least.
Thanks to you also.
