Discussion: Easton Empire Senior bats

Jon44, I assure I am not a rep. If you read some of my discussions with superfonzie on here and SBF you could figure that out. I agree the Elder and Salvo were awful. That's why he sent me one of his bats to hit and give my honest opinion which is what I did. I am not saying this will be the next best thing but Easton has finally put out a good product if the paint chip issue A. doesn't effect performance or B. Doesn't get to the point where the bat would be tossed out of play. Again these are all just my personal opinions on this bat.

Discussion: Easton Empire Senior bats

I posted this same review on softball fans:
My review on the Easton Empire. First of a big thanks to superfonzie for sending me one of his bats to hit and check out. Bat only had 50-60 swings on it is what i was told and it looked to be that way. Bat was the 2 piece 26oz endload. Weighting felt good probably a 1/2 oz is was it felt like to me. I swing a 27 oz. balanced most of the time. Bats distance and exit speed where great right there with Dudley, Adidas and Miken in my opinion. When fully broke in it will be as good as any senior out there in my opinion. The bad news bat developed a paint chip on barrel after 30-40 swings that I put on it. I know this was a problem with the elders don't know if this will effect durability or not. Again don't know if the paint issue is common or not or if it is a blem but Easton is on the right track with this bat!! And I was a big of a skeptic as you could as anyone out there after the turds Easton put out with the Elder and Salvo.

Discussion: WHY SO RESTRICTIVE

Question is how many runs would the team in against you in your league have scored if it was unlimited homeruns? I would be willing to bet more than 11 and that's your answer why there is HR limits!

Discussion: Hip Replacemant Results

I had both hips done in 2009. One of the best decision's I ever made. My doc suggested I take a year off from any athletic stuff and I did. Have been back playing ever since I was still playing young guy ball then I was 46 when I had mine done. I would suggest getting it done asap you will not regret it.

Tim,

Quick question have you swung both the 1 and 2 piece? If so how do they compare to each other.

Thanks!

Mike,

I think Dave is planning on doing one. You can't judge anything by Bubba he hits any bat at least 350'. When are you going to get back on the field?

superfonzie, Your quote "I think which was "The Elder" funny you are the one who was pumping up the Elder on softball fans a few years ago and now you are pumping up the Empire on their as well. The Empire has to be better than the Elder cause good god that bat was awful. Fortunately I wasn't one of the one's that bought one time will tell on the Empire.

Discussion: Are you serious.

southerinman - This is just an assumption but I would think a bat that failed testing would be sent to manufacturer for further testing to see if it has been altered. Many well broken in bats that haven't been altered will fail compression testing.

Discussion: what is the ruling?

Yes umpire may have called game but if everything happened the way you said you have the right to tell umpire we are protesting game. And the league director or UIC should review the facts and game would have to be finished in extra innings. Just because umpire says ball game does not mean your team doesn't have the right to file an official protest based on his incorrect call.

Discussion: When runners are entitled to advance

Runner gets 3rd and home. Runner already had possession of 2nd so 2 bases from 2nd. Now the kicker is runner must legally tag up or be subject to being out on appeal.

Discussion: first baseman charging the plate during delivery of the pitch

HAT MAN, no I don't know it all never have claimed to. I gave a correct answer to a question. You!! followed up "no such rule" so apparently you thought you knew it all! So if you didn't know for sure there wasn't a rule then why did you have to chime in? My response was to you chiming in without facts to support your response. No pipe no problem on my end apparently the problem's on your end!

SSUSA Staff yes I was referring to Randall's situation. Don't know why people come on here (HAT MAN) and leave comments not related to the post and then give false information. So no such rule HAT MAN I think SSUSA just posted it!

I should also add this would all be if in umpire's judgement fielder's actions where to attempt to distract batter. Which in this case it appears to be the case.

Yes it should be called as defensive interference batter should get 1st base or result of play if pitch was swung at. Fielder should also be warned and possible ejection if done again.

Discussion: Defense

My take on this yes defense will save you a run or two here and there. And will get you out of an inning or two here and there. But face it slowpitch softball is an offensive game. Simple way to explain you can play stellar defensive game make all the routines with no errors and still lose because your team didn't hit. Yet you can play a game make multiple errors and still win because you hit the crap out of the ball. It's pretty simple you have to "score" more runs than the other team regardless sorry guys offense rules in slowpitch softball!!

IMO it is the cover just like what has made the Baden ball a piece of s--t. The old Baden had a composite cover the new one's have a synthetic cover. I would assume tanners ball like the rock has a composite or leather cover.
