Discussion: New ADStarr ball

Bruce it was good seeing you in Dalton, I did get 2 at bats the first game and blew out my quad on the 2nd at bat ending my weekend.

The ball in Vegas is a multi layer ball, I designed that ball in 2004. The NX3 is a totally different design. I don't recommend hitting a multi layer for BP ever they are very hard on bats.

This ball is not very hard on bats but will still fly very well. I do have another model of this ball coming in sometime early spring that if you are looking for pure distance it is insane. It is called the Long Distance I will warn you that it is not very bat friendly.

I designed the for BP with a much lower impact then a .44/375 synthetic. They will break in bats with minimal damage to a bat. Safer to hit than any .44 cor ball and better results in all temps. They will not absorb moisture and the covers make them the most durable ball made to date.

Thank you for the post, it will take a year or two for associations to accept this ball as the norm. Making it in the U.S. will be a big advantage. We do make a BP specific ball that does a lot less damage to a bat and still fly's very well. It is 2 color and holds up just as well as all of the balls we make.

ADSTARR.com look on the front page for NX3 softballs. They are neither. They are a real core with several processes that mold a urethane cover to the core. The end result is a 1 piece ball. Yes there is a league discount and you will not find a more durable softball anywhere. As far as senior associations 1 has a contract for ballls. I supply for a association. The others I do not deal with. I do supply these to several senior leagues around the country.

We only brought in a couple hundred dozen end of this season just for that. We test everything that comes out of China, they always cut corners. We have corrected the ink problem and all of the new balls are good.

Glad you liked the ball, I have been hitting the same 48 balls since last June with no problems or wear. Some of them have small scratches on them from landing in a bluestone drainage swale but other than that no damage.

There are many advantages with this ball, to name a few durability is insane. The grip is always going to stay the same except for when wet but it is still far superior to composite or synthetic. The ball is 100% washable. Bat core contact is also much superior than any other cover on a ball being that the core and cover become 1 piece when finished. Most of all the ball can and will be made here in the U.S. soon enough, we are in the process of making new equipment to move the manufacturing to the states.

The bat was not determined to illegal at the field from what I saw. The bat was sent to the manufacturer from what I was told.

By the way Easton stamps there name on the inside of the barrel and therefore leaves no doubt to whether or not the bat has been shaved. If you send back an Easton and the stamp is not visible they will not honor the warranty. Maybe the other companies should do this. Sorry to say but cheating has been going on forever. Cork in wood, tennis balls in aluminum etc. When you call a young gun out on an altered bat there response is" If you ain't cheating, you ain't competing". Sad!!

The bat you are referring to has taper proof inside coating. If the bat is shaved it removes the security lettering. I saw the bat in question before it was sent off, it appeared to have the lettering removed.

Discussion: Using one ball for all games

First off some balls are not what they are stamped. The multi layer balls are basically .44/525 with a padded cover to fool the test protocol. The other ball mentioned I have had the lab test it and it isn't even close to what the cover says it is.

Now the ball used in the worlds in Dalton was a totally different ball, it sounded horrible but flew very well for guys that really can hit home runs.

When I got there on Thursday the 60 teams that I have friends on were all complaining. Friday morning my first swing went a loooong way. Our team hit the limit every game and then some. I brought 2 of them back and had them tested again not what they say on the cover but I think it was a very good combination of cor/comp for senior games and a lot safer than a multi layer.

Discussion: Religious ceremonies at tournaments

Our team is from the northeast and have players from a very mixed religious faith. One of our opponents which we are all friends with pray after the game. I asked the coach who I have been friends with for many years not to ask our players due to our diversity. It in no way is a slap in the face to them and our players are not made to feel uncomfortable. He completely understood and no ill will towards any. We do play them often and remain friends.

That is how I handled it and all is fine with them. Off the field we hang out with them as much as our own team.

I have a new ball that comes out today. It is 100% waterproof, the most durable ball I have ever made. The performance is out of this world also. It is a true single layer .44/375 and will hit as well as any multi layer balls on the market. After the game take them home and wash them and use them the next game.
