Does anybody have any idea when SSUSA will be putting this new ball into play at the larger tournaments? It is nearly July with some important tourneys right around the corner in some hot weather areas and still no sign of the new improved softball.

What gives?

Thank You:

I am not sure where our local league got them but they are a nice upgrade. SSUSA should be getting them into tournaments very soon (I would hope).

We used this new ball in league last night and it is far better than the Stote. It was about 80 degrees and a little humid and the ball was still lively but not like a Rock.

Thanks SSUSA for this improvement to our game.

Possibly the new balls are finally arriving in the US. It would be good timing to start putting them into play.

Hi Fred:

If you get yours Tuesday I hope SSUSA gets their soon also. It was 85 this weekend and the Stote even sounded like a mush ball. Will be great to see what difference the new ball makes.

I think if the new balls don't arrive soon they should buy a comparable ball from another source. It is getting warmer and the Stote we use now is turning to crap.

I don't blame SSUSA but the if supplier does not come through they should order another ball that will perform better than the Stote so we can hit a good ball.
I do believe we deserve an answer very soon. Give the team the choice to supply there own ball if it is about trying to use up the old inventory.

Yup, I know customs can be a bear but these softballs have been on the way for quite a few weeks. There is also some high level tournaments approaching so it would be nice to have all the new changes in place.

Hi All:

Just checking to see when that new SSUSA softball will be put into action. There are some good tournaments coming up so it would be nice to have the new ball by the time these get going. I understood the shipment was delayed for a while but by now they should have been delivered.

Hi Gary:

Starting next month there is a Wednesday night league down in Lacy at the RAC. You should come down after we get started and meet some of the guys and I am sure you will be able to find a team.

Hi Dave:

You guys have a tough job when it comes to decisions like this. In the end it usually all works out as it should. I can tell you from past experience if you are playing on a team that is in a higher bracket than they should be where you know it is nearly impossible to make it till Sunday it can be a long ugly season.

Kind of looks like Dave has been hitting Grandpas cough medicine pretty hard lately.

I watch all of Dave's bat reviews and he does a great job plus he has other guys hit with him for the comparison.
He just did one on the new Dudley (2018) balanced and said it is the hottest balanced bat he had ever swung. His reviews are well worth watching.

Hi All:

I was also one of the complainers about the Trump Stote so SSUSA thank you for making the change to a better ball. We appreciate your efforts.
I have not hit this new ball either but looking forward to giving it a shot.

Discussion: The "ROCK SOFTBALL"


Hi All:

It sounds like I was wrong to say 75% would pay to hit the Rock in all tourneys. Looks like I am in the minority on this. The Trump Stote we use now is just not a very good ball.

Discussion: The "ROCK SOFTBALL"


I would bet that over 75% of the teams would pay a bit more on entry fee if the Rock was used in every tournament in the country. Hitting a good softball is what nearly every senior player wants to do. If the balls for the 2018 season are already in route what good is it to ever bring this topic up in the upcoming meeting?

Thanks:

Discussion: Trump Softball


This Summer I took 3 Trump Stotes I n near new condition that I bought 5-6 years ago and compared them to three brand new Trump Stotes we currently use and there is a definite difference in performance. They are near identical up to about 275' but at that point the newer ball dies and the older ball keeps traveling. I don't know what they changed but they definitely perform different.

If we have to use the Trump can the producers of this ball get it back to the same specs it was made 5 years ago?
