Anyone get the louisville bat survey, from SSUSA.
My link to it in the email, kept going back to the email. I have had no reply back with an answer about that.
I would like to take it.

That is the link in the email, but even trying to cut & paste, it comes up with different stuff: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=RB5C6v4y3paOT1UfR4%2fdKus372ZGYf1loi6wSigp89U%3d&
That doesn't work either.
I am using a mac, w\ winXP and shouldn't be a problem but something is a miss.
Is there another way to go to it via logging in or something?
Wonder if there is a rule on this one.... lol.

I just took the survey. It had lots of repetitive questions and a lot of irrelevant questions, but I appreciate the attempt. Lots about graphics-and I could care less how a bat looks. Lots about whether other players use a bat, but I use what I like and it makes no difference who uses a bat. I would have like to see more on the actual liveliness of the bats and what we preferred. Also, more on durability, although they did touch on that a couple times. The wording also steered you to some answers. Thanks SSUSA for the survey, though. It isn't easy to come up with good questions.

Almost sounds like one USSSA put out about two weeks ago. I sent a reply back to one of the various reps for the assn about it.
Too many irrelevant questions and no bearing on real issues about the game. Questions that can easily be taken out of context either way as well.
I went to copy & add that link add that link here and it is the same one. No mention of Louisville Slugger in subject though...
Wonder if plagiarism is alive and well all over the softball world or they share results... that's a laugh.

Completely agree with Webbie; got halfway thru & exited out. Too many similar questions about issues we don't really care much about.

It seems to me that the survey is a marketing tool for the manufacturers and any benefit to the players will be purely coincidental. Even with that said, it seems to have been poorly constructed. I, too, completely agree with your descriptions.

IIT IS the same one USSSA put up a week or so ago. I questioned my problem to the support team at the web site and they said the cookies were blocking my input. Reasonable sense I took it through the other assn.
Funny they would do this to also get replies given the non informative nature of the questions asked.
And Louisville has little in the way of quality senior bats, at least.

Perhaps it's a back door entry into the changes that I believe will be coming.
ASA is the mover and shaker in all this. Everyone else is a caboose for the train.

No beneficial results for players, because the questions asked were not geared for that. A Facade.
