for swing
so as not to muck 2013's thread about his accident....
i went early today for our sunday bp to hit some 52's off a tee....these are balls that are in my truck(camper shell) 24/7...i have 33 in a bag which are anywhere from 1-3 year's old,and like i said have been in my truck for the same time....this is for swingforthefences,as he thinks the ball won't go any where....out of the 33 i put 11 out...oh forgot its been in the 90's for at least 2 months now and we all know what happens to balls left out in the heat...i hit different mfg'ers balls...worth,dudley,trump stote,trump evil,trump rock,ad starr tattoo,demarini stone...also had the original trump with the pebble skin cover,like a football or basketball...also the mix were NSA,ASA,USSSA ASSOC balls...used a reebok melle i'm breaking in,a 26el....of the balls hit out was a mix of the mfg'ers not one out perform the other per-say....but kevin if you read this,your og pebble grain ball was found furthest away....all balls went at least 320' please SFTF tell why you and your people can't hit them....use this ball and make the pitcher safer....

Bob - not disputing you & know that you have a good swing - but off the tee does not seem like a good test - anybody with a little tee work placing the ball with the stitching/seam horizontal can look like Babe ****** Ruth and put on a home run derby/display using a tee...I think over time this ball will have it's +'s & -'s.....I have my own opinion on it and the marketing nitch. But since I don't have to use it it makes no difference.

first thing you have to know Maddog is I didn't say we couldn't hit them out.. just to be clear! Balls we were hitting were uncorked 52/300s and they were like hitting pillows. so you say you were hitting them about 320... so if you blast a pitcher in the face with the force of a 320ft hit... what do you think would happen?

You hit it perfectly, trust me, there won't be any difference.

so 4x4 what way do you suggest testing a ball...something like having a pitcher throw all kinds of slop at you so it would take a 100 pitches to complete a testing session...mmmm nope not the way,you want to keep the variables to a minimum,and thats what a tee does for you...

sftf uncorked balls.....please tell me what that is....never heard of them unless your refering to the sb-12's with cork centers,which none of the mfg'ers balls are..they all are poly core centers except the sb-12 models which are cork......the pitcher won't have a broken face,or die with this ball will tell you that much....go look at the testing done....

larry,mmmm the way how did ya's do in dalton......
