So does that mean that they've gotten all the bugs out? I've when though 3 GBA's for a total of about 150 swings before they CRACKED, 30 on 1, 40 on another and about 50 on the WHITE GBA.
The video may be cool, but the BAT sucks!!!!

Rightrj send me your email address and I will make sure you get one of the new designed GBA 2011's. This is a totally redesigned bat. This bat has new formulated composites and is 2 pieces for more whip. What team do you play on? Are you in So Cal? Will you be in Hemet on the 22nd?

Marv19, I Appreciate your efforts in regards to advertising this bat.
Were they able to make a new Version of the White Veteran also? This also had a 30 day warranty as well as the GBA. I purchased both models and was told bye Mr.Gately that it too would be replaced, but i haven't hear a word on this model! Anyhow, Yes i do live in Southern Cal & yes I will be in Hemet next weekend. Email "rightrj@sbcglobal.net"
Thank you for your help

Bull3131 they are available on our site www.socalssa.com. Just click on the Bats tab and follow the instructions. What is pictured is the 2010 version as I am waiting for new graphics to update it. But be assured all orders pending and in the future will be of the 2 piece double wall design. If you have any questions feel free to ask me here or off the board. If you have a specific size and weight I'll check inventory so contact me off list for that. Remember however at this time supply is very limited as a new order is in transit. Thanks in advance for your order :O)

How much flex in this bat? Is it whippy like the geezer, or stiffer like the worths or eastons?

Need to add to this because people have asked about the video: The fence is 300'. The soccer goal was placed at exactly 400 feet. Balls were all .44/375 Baden Lexum from a shag bag that have been hit dozens of times.

The red/white/blue bat is an ASA. The black one is UTrip.

There was a laser range finder. Furthest ball hit with the ASA bat was 418. Furthest ball with the UTrip bat was 432. Hope this answers a few questions

Just curious but have any normal players hit the ASA bat. I could use the 418ft hit for 4 at bats in a game. I would like to know how the ball goes through the infield off of the bat and what is the break in time. Thanks Harry
