Discussion: Dudley 2.0

Mark,
Subtle differences but as I told Dudley, if you can make it 1% better it's a huge winner,,,,and they did. Break in is slightly easier resulting in more very high performance swings in the overall bats lifespan. They changed the grip spin so that it will last longer on the barrel over the life of the bat. So far, I have found both points to be true. Couple that with the extreme durability the Dudley bats possess and you have a very top level senior bat in your hands.

AJC,
Broke in another13" el for a player early this morning. Last years 13" traditionally was tougher to break in but I'll say this....75 swings and we have significant changes. At 110 swings the bat was performing among the top senior bats and just getting better. So.....break in on all the new Dudleys is better and quicker than last years models and durability is still a strong point. The Dudley engineers are right on point here and this bat is incredibly good. I'm continuing on with the 12" and durability testing too. Everything is pointing to the Dudley being even better than the first models. Call me with questions.

Discussion: Fall Training Camp for Senior players

Our grudge match afternoon scrimmage games in the afternoon are a great place to practice some of the skills that you learn throughout the day. Last Spring two of our ladies showed they can compete with anyone and really turned it up a notch. Come on down to Vero Beach for a good time, hone your game, and play a lot of softball.

Discussion: Power hitter for Vegas 50's weekend

My good buddy and legendary power hitter Dwight Treadwell will be in Vegas during the 50's program/schedule if someone needs a legit hitter. Dwight lives in TN on the east side of the country so teams need to be from there to pick him up. You can reach him at 901-486-8676.

Tony,
I will be swinging some of each model. We have had a lot of rain here in the last few days so I have not been able to get out to hit. Today and tomorrow are also forecasted for rain so I'll see how it goes.. Both bats you mentioned are very good and it's early on in the process but it seems that the Dudley is slightly more fore giving than the Adidas in the early rounds. I will continue on as soon as I can so I have a larger body of work to report on. I don't like to make decisions too early without examining a variety of bats not just a couple. I'll get back to it ASAP.

Discussion: Dudley 2.0

Guys,
Here is some feedback from the tournament that I was at this weekend and from players around the country that I have gotten bats to. ....
"The hottest bat out of the wrapper I have ever swung" was by far the overwhelming response and comment that I am hearing. The second most common was "I need to get another one"
I told Dudley when they were redoing the bat if they could just make it 1-2% better on break in that it would be a real winner. Obviously, they got the job done right. These first batch bats are VERY good. I am working on a more in depth analysis after I finish up with the bats that I am hitting but everything points to another for sure top of the line senior bat with the new Lightning 2.0. Contact me for more info....

Discussion: Dudley 2.0

It's official! Dudley 2.0' boxes have landed and I will be randomly selecting bats to test and review in the coming days. I am pretty sure these first batch bats will be just as good or better than the previous model. If you need help with questions get with me....

Discussion: Fall Training Camp for Senior players

Happy to announce that we will be holding our fall Training camp this November 11-13th in Vero Beach, FL. We specialize and focus only on the needs of the senior athlete and provide professional instruction to help you enhance your hitting, fielding, pitching, and base running. The big advantage too is our series of mini seminars throughout the weekend including health, nutrition, strength training, and injury prevention. We have been putting on the most comprehensive program for seniors for the last several years in Vero Beach. We welcome men from the ages of 49 and up and women 35 and older. Vero Beach is a great vacation place and we picked this weekend to coincide with SSUSA's great Winter National in Ft. Meyers held the weekend before the camp. Cost is $250 which includes your ticket to an awesome banquet Saturday night. Spots are limited so sign up now, play in the tournament and then come to camp!

Discussion: Best Batting Glove for Pratice

You guys have hit on a tough subject sometimes. I hit hundreds of balls every week and was going through a pair of gloves about every 3 weeks so I looked to find something more durable. "Work" style gloves didn't feel good at all to me as they are too thick and I couldn't get used to the feel of the bat so.....I sourced my own for Team 1 Sports. My gloves fit well , are true to size, and are extremely durable. I can now get multiple thousands of swings on a great pair of gloves and can wear the same thing in games or Bp. If you guys have questions about them feel free to get in touch with me.

Discussion: SOFTBALL SHOES

STLO,
THE only real good quality wide shoe I have seen and worked with players on was New Balance. There have been a few other companies but I haven't seen long term success over the years like I have with New Balance. I agree with the above post....shoes are very personal as far as fit goes and if you don't have an " average" foot your best bet is to try on pairs before purchasing or make sure you have a good exchange policy. Find something that works well for you and get a couple of pairs...

Discussion: ASA Bats DeMarini Juggernaut Vs Miken Freak Black Balance

Dancer,
Lots of great questions, let me see if I can help as I have swung and tested both bats extensively. You are really comparing two TOTALLY different bats that felel and swing differently. Both are very good bats and among the top 3-4 ASA bats out there so it going to boil down to which one best suits and feels comfortable to you. The Juggy is a heavy end load with a shorter barrel thus it feels and swings much different than the Freak. The Freak is totally balanced PLUS it has a 14" barrel thus creating a swing weight/feel a world away from the Juggy. I would tell you this....If you have been using and are happy with 14" bats don't change unless you want to experiment for a extended period of adjustment time in Bp with theJuggy. (Or if you just like trying new stuff :) NOTHING wrong with that either) call me anytime and I can go into greater depth with you. I'll be back from being out of the country this coming Saturday. I have limited phone access here.

Mizunos new Erupt has been great this year. They redesigned them to be lighter, more cushioned, water resistant and supportive. They come in either low cut or 3/4 versions. Get with me if you have any questions.

Discussion: Dudley 2.0

ASU,
I'm going to take a stab at this but this is my GUESS based on a few things I've heard. They very well could show up before Vegas but remember their other bat is still in inventory at their warehouse and with their REAL dealers. They probably want to sell down some inventory first and there is also the planning for production time since they do not own their own production facility. The bats are made where other companies bats and hockey sticks are made so production runs must be pre planned in advance.
