Discussion: senior z

I had been swinging both the balanced and short barrel Dudley's until I got my 27oz Hyper Z. I have approximatley 400 swings on it and going strong! I picked up a 26oz while in Vegas and swings it as and have a 28oz ordered. The ball exit speed and distance on the Hyper Z is every bit as good or better comparing it to the Dudley! And its durability surpassed the Big Cat.

Discussion: hyber z

I recently got my 27oz Hyper Z and will say it absolutely is right up there to the Dudley's. I swing a 27oz short barrel Dudley and a 28oz Balanced and the Hyper Z hits right with them...it's an excellent bat. I have about 160 swings on mine and it continues to get hotter. Now, let's see about it's durability!

Demarini Black Ops roller bag, but it's pricey!

Discussion: Senior HyperZ softball bat

I play in Carlsbad and took my 27oz Hyper Z out of the wrapper this morning and hit bombs. This bat is the real deal...right up there with the Dudley (which I swing), next is monitoring it's durability. Hot Hot bat!

Discussion: A.D. Starr bats

I have a 26oz and it has pretty good pop...no problem hitting it out. We'll see about it's durability, but it's encouraging hearing someone has 5000 swings on theirs.

Discussion: Phoenix Results

Any results? The brackets haven't been updated all weekend? I'm looking for the top 5 teams in men's 50AAA, 50 Major & 50 Major Plus and my wife is looking for the top 5 women's teams in 40 & 50's. Any help is appreciated!

Discussion: miken bat question

Gary yes! Miken incorporates the year the bat was manufactured within the serial number, which is typically the first # i.e., 6054931 (2006) 31659140 (2013) 41546784 (2014)

Discussion: Evaluation fo Dudley Senior Bats

I'm currently swinging a 26oz Dudley 12" endload...very nasty bat once I dialed it in. The bat-head gets around very quickly, so there is a learning curve with it and less bat control for sure! I've tried both the balanced and 13" endload and the 12 absolutely has more distance. I have a 27oz short barrel on its way and looking forward to even more distance. I thing though...although I have had no issues with mine, I have 3 friends that cracked theirs with under 300 cuts (2- 13" endload's and a balanced) and one other buddy's has over 600 swings on his balanced bat and it's a complete dud.

Discussion: When Is It Bat Altering?

No to all listed since neither alter the BPF rating of the bat? But I think the weights would be an issue and for safety there has to be at least 1/4 of knob in most sanctions.

Discussion: Monsta Senior Bat?

Yes...unless locally restricted. I have the Fossil and the ASA Blackwidow. I like the Blackwidow better than the Fossil - it seems feel better and has pop - Tuna!

Discussion: knob cuff advocates

I also use them on my bats. One thing they do for me is eliminate the knob from digging into my palm and giving me blisters during BP. I agree it fills in the void creating a natural grip - BigTuna!

Discussion: Monsta Fossil vs Combat Wanted

The Legit is the best balanced of the the three bats and also has better pop out of the wrapper than the Wanted. The Fossil hands down out performs the Legit out of the wrapper. One thing I can say about my Legit is it has over 800 cuts and has no signs of stress what so ever.

We have BP tomorrow morning (Sat) at Alga Norte in Carlsbad, so I hope to get the Fossil and Wanted up to the 100 cut mark and report back.

Discussion: Monsta Fossil vs Combat Wanted

Ok - I'll start with answering your questions. Hi Taits...we play at 9:30 Tuesday and Thursday mornings at Stagecoach in Carlsbad with 6 teams in our league. Come join us sometime!

LB16...here's what I do have right now (as far as senior bats):
Worth Legit 2 piece X2
DeMarini One balanced
DeMarini One endload
Easton BSR X3
Combat Wanted 2 piece
Monsta Fossil 2 piece

So, today's 2 piece comparisons of the Monsta Fossil vs Combat Wanted (both right out the wrappers.)

The Fossil: Wow! This bat has scary exit speed and it appears the walls are opened up right out of the wrapper. It does very well on mis-hits too...a badly mis-hit fly ball light high carried to the fence. The Fossil appears to be a balanced to Midload bat and easy to handle.

The Wanted: While it is not as hot out of the wrapper, the Wanted has all of the pop you can ask for and being somewhat a balanced bat was very easy to hit to all fields. The Wanted is a keeper and can't wait until it opens up.

Conclusion - if you're looking for an immediate high performance gamer the Fossil would be my choice over the Wanted. Both bats are very easy to handle, solid feeling and tons of pop!

Tomorrow I'll be swinging my new bats...Monsta Fossil and Combat Wanted. The bats are 2 piece models and both 26oz. The ball of choice will be the Rock soft cover 44/375 we use in Carlsbad. I will post my thoughts and comparisons tomorrow - Big Tuna!
