Weight of bats
How do bat Manufacture determine the weight of a bat. I got a warranty return bat from Worth that is supposed to be 28 oz.but actually weighs 27.3 oz. I won a Miken UltraII at the rececnt TOC that is stickerd at 27 oz and actually weighs 27.96 oz. Don't mfg weigh the bats before they slap a sticker on them?

I'm not sure of their processes, but I know that the bats will very alot in weight. To get the true weigth I've taken them to a postal outlet and had them weighted. I've had some off by an ounce or two.

I weighed them digitally at work and then for confirmation had them weighed a second time at the postal service.I got the same reading both times.My game bat-again a Worth bat(2007 model)3 yrs. old is stickered at 28 oz.Out of curiosity I weighed it today and it weighs 27.1 oz.I guess it would be prudent to weigh them before you buy-if you're looking for close to an exact weight.

yep bats seem to go from a .5 oz under to 1 oz over.
back when they were doing the ASA re-cert program,i sent a 26 oz demarini double wall in and it came back at 29 oz,need less to say i got a hold of demarini/wilson CS and got a 26 from them(after i sent them mine,LOL).

Not to sure of the QA at the bat plant, but from my manufacturing experience certain products were plus or minus X amount. However, certain customers want the exact weight, lenght, color, etc. for their buyers, sponsors, players.

SLOBALL since you won a Ultra II,does that mean you will start to use it in Senior tournaments. You are the only guy i know that uses a ASA bat and hits them as far as you do. How are doing,your ankle heal up,ok.I know what you mean about weights on the bats,my combats are that way.Take care SLOBALL

Hey Bullet. No I won't swing it at all. I'll stick to what works for me. I'll hold on to it for a while and will ultimately sell it.I still have an issue with the ankle but,it's getting better.See you in Indy.
