Discussion: Evil B.P. 52+ Softballs

Exactly what did you invent? A poly core? Or a 2 color ball? Because a 2 color ball has been around long before you were and I wont finish this sentence I think most know how you got your start.

Jc there are many options for bp balls, the cor and compression can be altered to achieve the desired result with less impact to the bat. This results in longer lasting bats with very good performance on the field. We make 2 bp specific balls that are bat friendly. They both offer greatly reduced severity index impact yet fly as well or greater than there game play ball counterpart.

Bob are you drunk? Are you referring to the NX3. You can call 845 532 2668 for info, we have balls for .52 play or .44 that are safer on bats.

Discussion: Why so many shaved senior bats

TAT22
I came up with what you are saying in 2006. I brought it to all of the associations, they said they couldn't make the bat companies put it in the bats. The cost was less than a dollar. When the associations brought it to the attention of the manufactures they said they would never put it in a bat.

I still have the scanner and bats with this in them that have over 3000 swings on them and still reading fine.

Way to represent Bruce. This past weekend Bruce's 50 major team won the Senior Smokey 5-0. He was selected All Tourney and batted .843. Great accomplishment nice job done by the whole team.

Discussion: SSUSA Staff: Shaved Bats

I have been compression testing senior bats for 4 years and there is a simple inexpensive way to correct the problem. All it takes is someone that will make rules to do so and allow people to enforce them.

Discussion: Re-Rated without playing a tournament

So there is a team in the northeast 55 major that has won or come in 2nd in Vegas multiple times and never been moved up to +. This year picked up 3 major + rated players on top of the ones they already have. The rules are not the same for all.........

Discussion: HELP---I just don't get it!

Marv hope all is well with you. Un the Nightmare bat it is not for ball spin at all,it is for a specific reason but not ball spin. With all of your knowledge and past history you should have been able to figure it out by now.

Always good to hear from you if you want to talk feel free to call.

Discussion: face masks

Variables is what it all comes down to.
A .47/525 has less Severity index then than a .44/375. Severity index is force. More force more wall flex, more wall flex more performance. This is why shaved and rolled bats perform better.

So balls and bats are tested at 72 degrees. (here's where variables are important)
If you take a .44/375 composite cover ball and hit it against a .47/525 ball at 72 degrees. The .44 will outfly the .47 every time except (again variables) by player that cannot maintain bat speed through the impact.

So bigger players will hit .44's farther and lesser players will hit .47 farther because they have less of an impact and don't slow the bat down as much.

Variables
A .47/525 ball is less prone to lose compression in heat, not because it is higher compression but higher cor poly losses less in the heat than low cor poly.
So the higher the heat,the less a low cor/comp ball will perform for all.

The test facilities have to have a set temp for the ASTM testing and 72 is the number but it is really not reflective of real game play most of the time. A .44 at 82 degrees is around 300 compression and at 92 they are around 250 compression. Now if the testing was done in the lab at 82 the balls would fly well into the 90's but the lab does not take variables into effect just raw test data. A .47 with these same heat indexes would not go much below 400 compression. There is ways to make a ball that will perform right where they should but the associations would have to throw out the numbers used today. They could play better in all conditions and lower the SI at the same time. Here's the problem, how do you get people that don't understand the science to change to some thing else they don't understand. At least by following other associations they are doing what has already been accepted as normal.
