Combat 52 CAL Frank Henry
Does anyone have any info on this bat? I have never heard of it until just now browsing the web. It is as stated Combat 52 Cal Frank Henry Senior bat.

TriCoach at Team 1 Sports would know. I'm sure he's tested it.

52 cal Frank Henry is not a senior bat. It is a no warranty USSSA bat that does not have the 2013 stamp on it.

It's an NSA/USSSA bat. I bought two to use for bp. I hit it about 150 times yesterday and like it. Not as long as a senior but it does have a large sweet spot like one.
ju25 is correct about the stamps, not the latest.

Bruce,

How would you compare this bat to an end-loaded, black Centenarian as far as swing weight and feel? Did you buy it for BP because of better durability? I would like to find something very durable that is weighted like the Centenarian for use in winter BP.

I bought a Freak with a warranty last year; it broke just before the warranty was up, so I got a new one for this winter. I guess I can't complain about getting two winter seasons out of one bat purchase, but I'm on the lookout for a replacement.

TT, I have a black Centenarian but it's still in the wrapper. As for the feel of th 52 Cal, mine is a 28el and it feel much like my 30el MM. I didn't mention in my previous post that after 150 swings, the paint started to chip and that the temps were probably in the low 50's. I don't believe it is the tank that my old Velocity 2 is but then it is much more fun to hit than my vel 2.

Bruce hello.

When you decide to get the black Centenarian out please let us (me) know how it hits. I got one last year for tournament play and some league. 30oz balanced, swings easier than my 26oz Demarini Classic alum bat.

Ball comes off bat like the 1st legal Ultra II 30oz balanced bats, or so it seems.

Have a great day. C

I have a 27oz EL and was swinging it yesterday in the cages. We were using 44/375 balls. The feel reminded me of my Combat (black) Centenarian. The ball jumped off it really well, but I won't be able to really tell much until I swing it outside in the spring. I put 75 swings on it and it showed now signs of wear.

I guess this 50 Cal would be good for the winter and bp w/o losing much pop. I found them for $100 NIW

since i play in leagues(ASA) other than senior,i have to use different bats....last year used a combat avarice(asa) and spike baker(usssa),both 27fl......just got a combat pure (usssa) for xmass...our ASA leagues allow usssa bats as we use the 52/300 ball....

i use these for bp and no prols so far...the combat pure has only been hit off a tee,but feels real good.....also been using a wood bat in bp.........
