Discussion: Beware of Boombah !

I do believe the WSA directors were selling these bats as dealers as part of this arrangement with Boombah. If that is the case, you would certainly have to believe that Boombah was aware that the WSA was going under and did nothing about it. Especially in the final few weeks, they had to know that it was coming to an end.

If all of this is true, I think it is shameful of Boombah to have continued to sell these bats and take advantage of unsuspecting customers. Lucky for Boombah this is softball and not wall street, or this type of thing would get them in all sorts of trouble.

Boombah needs to make things right and buy these bats back from a customer. I for one will think twice about giving my money to a company that is willing to mislead and take advantage of its customers like this.

Discussion: Sick of these bats !


I think the point EINSTEIN is trying to make is that adding the yellow ripit would simply give players a more durable choice amongst the bats that are already legal. If it is in fact true that the yellow ripit tested the same as the Ultra II them I see no reason why it should not be legal.

The U2 and the new Worth bat (both from K2) have horrible durability, and they can simply get away with it because there is no competition in the market that forces them to make a better bat. The Combat is a little better but still lacks the durability someone should get when spending $200 on a bat.

I have not swung a yellow ripit, but from what I hear it is a much better bat in terms of durability. If this bat was legalized, one would have to assume that Miken, Worth, and Combat would have to step up to the plate and make a more durable bat. Since we are the ones spending $1000 a season on bats I am certainly in favor of allowing the ripit so it raises the bar.
