Ambush, Reebok Melee, Miken Macenko Model and the Dudley Lighting. I think all are pretty equal these days.

Dudley for me also, but my Ambush just keeps going and going. Both have great pop!

Purchased two from Allen for team bats because of durability expectations. No issue with durability so far(several hundred hits on each), don't think they have the pop of several others though. But as they say, you can't have your cake and eat it to.

SSUSA- Do they give the girls a brake in age? Say one five year class?

Discussion: Dudley Lighning 12 inch senior bat saw tooths

Lefty, I also love my Dudley. It does a great job as there are maybe four bat brands I think are about equal. The question I would like to put out is have any of you experienced more or less pop in the same brand bat? Do you think some batches are hotter than other batches?
Have sold several Dudleys to my teammates and a couple of them especially has more pop than mine.

Good catch Dbax. My brain didn't catch complaining, it saw complying I guess. Hope Alan and his Team 1 guys get to play today. Looks really stormy above Atlanta today.

Morning Alan, in trying to find the most suitable date for your fall camp I'm sure you are aware of the obvious dates to stay away from(Dalton, Pensacola). Course with your weather you could have it later and give us a brake from the cold.

Haven't tried hitting a wet or dry tampon lately, but as you stated believe I would find something else to do.

When we play in Charlotte they use those 52/300 balls and senior bats are aloud. We have found more success using ASA bats.

Miken really addressed their durability concerns with this new Triad blackout. Haven't heard of but one failed blackout all year. Does take time to brake in though.
Haven't heard anyone give the Demarini much positive remarks.

Too bad your not old enough to have a ten or twelve year old grandchild. They are the cheapest expert technical advisor you can get. In the meantime put me down for the e-mail snippets.

Alan, after attending your softball camp I realize softball and equipment sales are just part of your business. You have a lot of irons in the fire as we said growing up.
BUT, do you think you would have time maybe once month to send out a info letter(diet,training,newest equipment) related to senior softball for anyone who wanted to sign up? Maybe Bob and Davey could contribute also. I'm sure you would have a good response. Also if you decided I hope your sweet wife doesn't find out who came up with this idea.

Grimmie, I'm 67 and would still play the game I love without the senior bats now that I'm retired and have the time. But it is still rewarding when I'm able to get one over the finch. That would never happen with the ole aluminum bats.

Fall Camp? What a GREAT idea Alan! Do you have the dates yet? When can I sign up? I look forward to seeing you and your staff again this fall.

One other thought is I along with a lot of others I bet would like to see you construct a message board that yourself, maybe Bob and Davey could have weekly tips and answer our questions about training and nutrition.

Boy, did you open up a can of worms with us ole guys.
