Discussion: BAT WEIGHT


Hi
Is there any SSUSA rule concerning minimum bat weight?
I was told that a bat must be at least 26 ounces...
Is that true?

Thanks

Discussion: Endload?

Maybe the end load weight is the same for both Dudley end load bats.
The only difference between the two bats is just the 1 inch barrel length.

Discussion: Endload?

I have a question....

I know that Miken has 2 end loaded bats. One being .5 ounce end load and the Big Cat is a 1 ounce end load.

So what are the end load weights for the 2 Dudley end loaded bats?
Are they .5 and 1 ounce like the Mikens?

Discussion: Hitting from tee vs. hitting pitched ball

If anybody were to conduct an actual test to get an answer to this question. The human element would have to be taken out of the picture by using some sort of mechanical batter to get accurate results.

Discussion: Sore Toes

Guys and Gals playing softball in shoes that are not really softball type shoes seems to be the new trend. Lots of players are wearing running shoes for softball. The advantages of running shoes is that they are generally lighter in weight, more comfortable to wear and can be used for more than one sport.

Discussion: Dudley Lightning


I believe the stickum is more of a gimmick than actual hitting aid because if that substance made any huge difference the bat would not have been approved.

Also if you don't wipe the bat down with a damp cloth on the bat after each use the bat surface will become like any other bat because fine dirt or dust will cover it.

Discussion: Best turf shoes out there


"One of the biggest problems I have with shoes is that after a few games of running in the outfield my toes get sore. It seems to occur more often with turf shoes. It could be the shoes get a better grip when hitting the ground and my foot slides forward just enough to rub against the inside front of the shoe. I have had it happen to me wearing Boombah's (2 pair) and a pair of Mizuno's. I have tried wearing 2 pair of sox but that didn't seem to help much. My foot size is 10.5 and the shoes I bought were 11's. I don't know if going to size 11.5's would make much difference as the foot would still slide within the shoe. And yes, I do tighten the shoe strings."

Should I get size 11.5 shoes?

A full size bigger than my foot.

What do you think?

Any suggestions?

I think Boombah shoes are good but overrated.
When it comes to buying things like shoes it is better to go to a "brick and mortar" store and try the shoes on before buying. It saves on time and shipping costs if the shoes don't fit or feel right.

Discussion: Does This Make Sense??

Hey Mr. Swing Makeover Ken, Mr. Senior Softball Bat Reviews Super Dave or any other Senior Softball YouTube Stars.

I would like for you to make a video that sheds light on the effects of aging in relation to hitting softballs.

Sharing some your thoughts and suggestions on this subject would be very helpful to the all of us senior softball players that watch your videos.

After all, you are one of us and you will be facing this is the not so distant future.

hemi racer

Your statement "No scientific proof, just see more knuckle balls off my bat during batting practices." indicates to me that your tacky bat is giving you LESS SPIN than a non tacky bat.

Discussion: HELP---I just don't get it!

Is there anybody out there that has any real proof or evidence that a tacky barrel on a softball bat will actually change the spin or flight of a softball any more than a non tacky bat?

A video would be nice!

Discussion: What Are The Settings?

I have found that setting the pull release arm at 5, the rise pitch arm at 2 and the foot spring setting at 1 give a 50-53 foot pitch with a pitch arch of about 8-10 feet.

Discussion: WHO ARE CURRENTLY THE MOST POWERFUL HITTERS IN SENIOR SOFTBALL



If your so great, why don't you get on the Long Haul Bombers Stadium tour?

Maybe Mark Maquire and Sammy Sosa will soon be playing Senior Softball and take that challenge....

So what makes this bat so different from the Miken Triad other than a longer warranty?
