They say that another snag, with an equipment installation, has delayed their introduction, but they are looking at the next week or so.

There is always something for a 'delay', & likely always will be too.
Nothing better than integrity and honestly in business. Oh sorry, there hasn't been.

I imagine this has been incredibly difficult for Steve and his family and they have made mistakes, disappointed and frustration a lot of people, but I think they will come through.

to steve's credit, i did leave him a msg. a few months ago, and he called me the next day. i do believe he is of good caracter and a man of his word. i fully believe that he will make it right with all who have been waiting for their bats that have already been paid for. i called him yesterday and left a msg. i do expect him to call back monday.it has been quite an ordeal, but some of the problems were not his fault, and some were unexpected. soon, we will all be happy. i just thought maybe one of you who are waiting,might have got an update from steve. when he calls me, i'll pass on the 411. dennis

steve mckinlay called me today. he is the owner of gsc bats. i have spoken with him twice now,asking for an update for an estimated time of delivery for my veteran bat. he fully expects the bats will be shipped out before the end of this month. if you send him an email or leave a msg.,he WILL get back to you. i have never met him personaly, but will say that he is a good man with much character and integrity. he honors his word and lives by faith in the LORD. the g in gsc bats, stands for GOD. to me,as a man of faith, that means alot! if you feel like you need to bash him on here, why don't you just talk to him instead. toll free 1-888-459-7040, or steve@gscbats.com
he says the veteran bat will out perform any bat on the market. i believe him!

New GSC video is out on their web site, but no release date given. This has been an amazing saga. I hope it ends well. If anyone gets any real update please share. I have gotten no responses the past days in response to calls and emails. The new video says something about a company needing to step up.

Same old song and dance. Still no stamps on bat either. No follow up on that BP session from anyone what was supposed to happen in PHX this month either. No word out of Reno either as being seen there as well.
If they happen two years after they were paid for by some players so be it, but it sure doesn't give credence to this guy.
Not being one who ordered one, but one very interested in it when available. Still am hoping it comes out as good as hoped for.

You have it reversed, more like hoping the 'customers' or those owed a bat drank it so there is no claim to fulfill. Not that they will be anyway.

What's this, 2 years and counting.

I wonder how many of you guys bought these bats sightt unseen? I would have to swing one before I ever bought one! IMO

GSC stands for "Great Scam Cadge"... Swing4, I wonder the same thing and like you I would have tested a bat or got a word of mouth from friends or SSUSA bloggers before forking out the cash... a fool and their money are surely parted.
CONGRATULATION to you and your team!

The last heard is end of August. Reason given, wants to have enough bats to fulfill initial demand. This has been amazing. Something definitely stinks with how this has been handled. The lack of credibility created is sad. Most likely there are problems that they don't want to discuss. We will see again at the end of August.

Thanks Dano, we swing new bats all the time with BP twice a week. We try new bats all the time.. I'm lucky one of our founders of the Barons team is also a Factory rep of Demarini... I have given him a hard time for two years... he has been bringing out these inferior demars to our batting practices to get a gage on what's up with them... he brought out the blue ones from last year and the first 50 swings seemed promising, he was like he was on Viagra... then they broke.LOL We stuck with our Combats and Reeboks and U2s and Toxics.... Now, I have to say, he has a bat that can compete with the reebok.. I am a Reebok swinger right now but did buy a Demarini because of the BP performance today... As far as GSC, I hope they get it right.. Time will tell but those of you who bought ages ago should get two bats for your funding of this new bat company in my opinion! That's if it ever makes it to market. Good luck!

Well what's another delay. They just keep moving it back. Bur reason you gave is reasonable, unlike having to get the info second hand as it were.
Seems to be that they take out licenses but do not use them Cupertino, Ca is one this year. I think it was for manufacturing.
