Which .44 375 To Use
Playing in a rec league which purchase all balls from 1 vendor before the season, I have no way to know how the different balls all labelled .44 375 perform compared to each other and as the game goes on, and in different atmospheric conditions-
cold/hot; wet/dry, high humidity/low humidity etc. Let's not sidetrack this thread by how the balls affect the game, please just discuss how the different brands behave in different conditions and why you like some and dislike others and let's avoid personal attacks. Thank you. Just trying to learn.

The Baden is the second best option in my opinion . We use it for our NCSSA tournaments and it is a vast upgrade from the "Stotes" , that SSUSA uses . But , to actually comply with the designated 44/375 rating we need to use the X Rock . It is actually 44/375when it is 100 degrees . Doesen`t lose compression in the heat . This is why they use it in Vegas . If other tournament directors were really concerned with us actually using the compression , that is specified , they would use the Rock . It is a no brainer .

If you can find some old Thunder Advance 44/375 that is an excellent ball IMO.

Be careful which Baden Fire softball you purchase. Model 2sb550ys has been used in numerous tournaments which stipulate the use of a 44core 375compression ball. There is a very small 44core 375comp printed in red on the ball. According to several sites which sell these balls, the 44core and 375comp stamp represent the minimum not maximum. They are actually 47 core 550 compression balls. Note the 550 in the model number. It is suggested that they be used in outlaw leagues and home run derbies.

If you have ever hit these balls, you knoe that they are not 44 375's.
