40 core 375 balls
Hey Guys, i'm planning on playing in a USSSA turney soon and they're using the USSSA 40/375 balls...does anyone of have in history in regards to these balls? Are these GOOD balls or are they restricted?
Thanks for your input...

depends,if it is below 70 degrees they are ok to use,the lower the temp the harder they get,higher the temp the softer they are.usssa also uses the 52-275 ball that doesn't change hardly any with a temp change.we use both over in dallas for usssa tourney's,52 for summer and 40 for winter ball.

Biggest piece of crap ball I've ever played with. Two tourneys last year, 75-80 degrees, not fun. I've never hit a 52-275, I'm interested to see if it is any better. Have my doubts but who knows. I got to see for myself.

Thanks guys for your input!
Mad Dog I hit with this trump USSSA 52/275 yesterday in BP.. about 100 swings,I must say it really sucks!
Don't beat me up..lol
I've already contacted the Director of the turnney, and he stated to bring our own balls just incase the teams start to bitch! This happen in the Toys for Tots turnney this past Dec. Guys complained and the Dir.felt the pressure and had teams throw in whatever balls they wanted to hit with. The only problem was some teams used 47 & 50 core balls, with U-trip bats, the Kids had a ball!!!!lol

rightrj was it the classic plus ball or the older one.now if you are hitting the 52 dead center it will not travel all that well.it will get thru the inf pretty good,but not a lot of distance,unless you get some back spin on the ball.the 40 is ok for cold weather,hell even i can hit out with a syn-2.haven't played in a tourney (play E with the kids here)where we allowed hrs,playing with the 52 ball,hey wasn't allowed with the 40 but got an accidental one,oopppsss,also was 30 degrees out.

sounds like ya had fun with the 47's and 50's,kids egos are so fragile now a days,they need to hit it out to feel good,also need glass to do it.

FF make sure it is the classic plus ball(for the 52-275),as it is the newer one.

mad dog is right -ball is OK below 70 but just barely and then if your swinging a good bat. The ball is no fun when warm out ...with any bat.

enviro-vac,the ball should do ya's great up there in the great white north,do ya ever get temps above 70...LOL....
i found that any bat during cold weather hits it ok,i used a syn-2 when i play with it,only have one other usssa bat anyways(miken 585 maniac).

b/c of its temp sensitivity(40-325) is the reason i like the 52-275 ball better,its not temp sensitive like the 40 ball.
