Discussion: Finding a bat's swing weight

Bruce
I have also used the method you described but my source was the same as yours.

I know your buddy in Tacoma and Bash BP together a lot. So, I didn't understand it either.

Discussion: Opinions about custom glove makers....

Not a custom but the Spalding Pro Select is an extremely under rated glove. You can get NWT on the auction site for less than $100, a very good value.

If you're looking custom then Glovesmith is as good as it get; they will work with you to get the fit and finish you want.

I'm a big Nokona fan but you have to be conscience of the leather combination, if weight is a concern. Kangaroo and sandstone are your best choice to reduce the weight.

The only place I know, where Washington borders Alaska is on page 75 of the SSUSA Rulebook. We (WA) border Hawaii there, also!!

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Endload or balanced?

I read a study which proved MOI effects swing speed more than weight. Players swing lower MOI bats faster than higher MOI bats. A balanced bat will a have a lower MOI than an EL bat. So, generally people will swing balanced bats faster than EL.

Does that mean balanced bats perform better than EL?

I don't think so, there are a lot of other variables to consider when evaluating bat performance.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: When Is It Bat Altering?

The rule on altered equipment doesn't say enhance or increase performance. It simply says change the physical characteristics; adding weight to the knob changes a physical characteristic of the bat, its MOI. The added weight may not enhance performance but it is still an altered bat by the rules.

Anything that adds weight to knob changes the bat's MOI thus changing its performance and is illegal.

Dave,
Did you catch the error on the 50 Major? Team 29 is listed twice in the header and Team 28 is missing. The round robin games appear to be correct.

I think I got the elimination bracket backwards:

Still Young vs Grant's Posse
Team Ohio vs Woodlaw

When I left the fields, EBO vs Mid-Atlantic in the finals.

still playing in the elimination bracket:
Still Young/DLB vs Woodlaw ???
Team Ohio vs Grant's Posse

We Doerflinger ended 7th lost to Still Young/DLB.

All I heard on the M+ was the NW Lengends were in the finals

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Technical Questions

Tatooball, is it the norm for endload and balance to have separate certification tests?
I would think the MOI of the bat changes because of weight positioning to achieve the endload or balance feel.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Technical Questions

I believe that the bat weight shouldn't have any bearing on determining model for certification; but end-load vs. balanced would change the bat performance by changing the MOI and should be considered for certification.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Technical Questions

I got my answer directly from the ASA website "ASA Bat Certification Program FAQ".

Q: How many bats are tested before a particular model qualifies for the ASA certification
mark?
A: The standard contract with participating bat manufacturers requires only a single sample
bat to be tested at the ASA approved testing facility for certification purposes. Under that
contract, the bat manufacturer agrees that every single bat of that model will actually comply
with the ASA Bat Performance Standard.

Discussion: Technical Questions

Only, one bat needs to be tested for a model to receive its certification. So, the answer is no; not all weights and loads need to be tested.
