Trumpball may I ask a gerneral question. A bat like yours with a warranty would sell for $299, this implies that I would receive 2 bats before the warranty expires. The cost to me is $150 each. Why not offer those who would take advantage 1 for $199 or 2 for $300 no warranty either way.

I do understand that a large % of folks never send in for the warranty if that is the answer so be it. Just a thought. I personally have had very good luck with your product, thank you for choices.

Simple answer here. Margines, there no real margines to sell them that cheap. If I did we would be out of business before we got started. BUT I am currently working on that, we are in the process of testing new materials to make bats out of and if sucessful we hope to have a bat that is much more durable, cheaper, just as good as the offerings of today and cooler looking. Kepp your fingers crossed, I play myself and the cost of bats has gotten out of control. Control is the operative word here as long as the bat companies have the control you pay what they want....

In reading the ad, it seems to me that we pay $250 per player and we get the items that were listed. What isn't clear to me is what stipulations are included...
1) does the sponsor need to do this for every player?
2) is everyone on the team required to use the Senior Combat (when legal to do so)?
These are the type of things that normally accompany a bat sponsorship. Perhaps I missed the point in that this isn't a Combat sponsorship.
It does seem to offer a lot of goods for the price.
Please clarify...
Thanks, Bob Woodroof

No manufacture that has you pay for eqiuptment can legally make you swing the product. However any deals made through this agreement can be cancelled due to not supporting the companies involved.

We choose to do this in order to help the players get affordable equiptment. If this goes well we will expand our sponsored teams and offer more paid sponsorships. If it does not go well it will cease to exsist. It really is about supporting businesses that can help you with equiptment.
If teams choose not to take part in this, that is fine. We still appreciate all of the business that we get from the senior players and wish everyone good luck for the season.

Bob, NCI just signed up for the team package (16-players). I handled the transaction, and found Kevin and his sales team to be very professional and flexiible. They allowed us to upgrade to bat bags w/wheels at a fair price and as you already stated it's a great package deal.
