How are all these bats passing the test? The Original UII was at the limits and hitting balls at 105+, and these new bats are supposed to be hotter. Somebody is gonna get killed.

Discussion: Question about single-wall metal bats

First aluminum bats were like fence poles, virtually indestructable. When they came out with singlewalls they thinned down the metal wall for better performance. These bats were at their best right out of wrapper and degraded or dented after use. When I first started playing('71) the ball degraded, not the bat. When singlewalls first came out the balls were rocks(red & blue dots) .52/575+ or 50/575+ and performance was improved but durability suffered. I used an XBH(heavy wall) from the 70's to early 90's. '96/'97 Demarinis were insane and Worth EST's of the late 90's were great also. Best singlewall I ever hit was a Ritch's Superior but it didn't last the whole season. Singlewall bats nowadays are good to go right out of wrapper.

Discussion: How do we get bat manufactures to still make bats for asa and harder balls

52/300 is the official ball for ASA sanctioned events as of 2014, unless it is senior ball which still uses the 44/375. Some leagues still use the 44/375 and they are hard on the new ASA bats. An all association bat will have better durability with those balls. IMO find a 2014 or 2015 Easton or a Combat Derby Boys or 275, all can be had for under $100 with warranty.

Discussion: ASA Bats

MSU is the Gray Ultra 1 and MSUM is the Gray Ultra 1 maxload, these bats are banned in SS. Your bat has an ASA stamp on it and is model# SOULTA and therefore should be legal. My teammates love that bat, as for me I have the 2014 maxload SULTMA and , like I said before prefer my Combat Derby Boys or Easton L6. According to what you posted almost any bat except the Original Miken Ultra BAL/Maxload is legal, so you should be able to swing your UII or any Senior, USSSA, or ASA bat.

Here is a list of the bats that were just banned on 1-22-2016.

Discussion: ASA Bats

Fred S , I believe he is referring to the ASA only Miken Utra 750X which came out in 2013. I own one and there is no way that bat should be banned, it is good but I have swung much hotter. ASA bats for 2013 and beyond are made for the .52/300 ball, and hitting with a 44/375 will have an effect on durability. From what I have been reading Demarini is the king of ASA. Personally I don't care for the feel of Demarinis so I use an Easton L6 or my Derby Boys 275 for my ASA league. IMO I would go with an Easton or Combat Derby Boy because they can be had for under $100 with warranty and will perform well. Comes down to your preference 1 or 2 piece, balance or End load. I would not pay any more than $100 for a Freak98, but that's just me.

Discussion: 2016 Worth Dennis Rulli Senior Bat Balanced SBDRSR

Same bat Jeff, the Rulli and Jeff Hall Legit were both released in the spring of 2015. I have yet to see one in action and the few reviews that I have seen say it has some pop. It has a new tri-seamless technology and is a tri-wall bat so it should be durable. If you can get it for $119 or less I would give it a shot.

Discussion: Worth Senior Legit

I had a 454 senior that was less than 30 days old and had about 200 swings on it when it broke. Called Worth and they told me to send it back and they would take a look at it, but would not promise a return. They sent me a new 454 after inspection. Loose barrel is a defective bat IMO.

Discussion: Hot Bats and Hrs

Good post Gary, IMO, guys between 50-60 that play in the upper levels can still put them out at will, but at 60 and above it starts to drop off. We have a 65+ league that plays before us and uses ASA bats and I doubt they could hit any out if the fence was 250'. We use a Dudley Thunder SY Classic M(40/325) in our 55+ Can-Am league which is loaded with hall of fame players and our HR's our down. Mishits are now staying in tha park . When you go to Vegas for worlds, with the thin air and the Rock ball almost anybody can go yard. I still have my Original Combat DaBomb purchased in 2005, but I only use it in tournament play. Can't understand why guys use their good bat for bp and in crappy weather conditions and complain when it breaks.

Discussion: Senior bats vs. 52/300 ball

Dave, Senior bats are hotter than other associations 1.20 bpf because they are tested differently. Senior bats only test the COP(Center of percussion) basically center of barrel where sweetspot is supposed to be and are tested out of wrapper. Other associations(USSSA) test the whole barrel and after a number of swings have been put on bat. Composite bats improve in performance with more swings on them and will exceed 1.20bpf. As far as the difference with a 52/300 ball and 44/375 your linedrive would have probably stayed in the park. Pretty hard to square up a 52/300 ball and get great distance. If you hit them slightly under center and create spin they will travel. Also depends on what 52/300 ball you are hitting. The new stamp USSSA bat are supposed to be made to unravel when they will exceed 1.20, while older models can and will exceed 1.20 after many swings.

Discussion: Bat Gimmick

Easton used to have the Reveal, clear barrel that was supposed to change color when exceeding test limits. Reebok had the Vector O
with holes in the handle for less drag. Mizuno Blur had the strips which were supposed to grip the ball and put more spin on it, and the Dudley Lightning with the tacky barrel which is supposed to grip ball also.

Curly,
I think the 32 your seeing on those fastpitch bats refer to length (32"), fastpitch bats usually top out at 34"/26oz.

Fred,
I remember that, and I believe there were a couple of other 32oz. metals. I don't recall any composite weighing more than 30oz. Last 32oz. bat I owned was a Louisville TPS Gold also had one in a 34oz.

I have not seen a 32oz bat in years. Most manufacturers top out at 30oz and some of the newer stuff at 28oz.
