Dudley Bat problems
OK all your Dudley reps. What do we do with a bat that has all the end load rattling around the inside of the bat?

It's quite simple. Buy an Easton............

Good luck.

Rocky, I had a 2015 balanced Dudley that developed a rattle inside. The company I purchased it from suggested I contact Dudley directly, which I did. They had me send them the bat as they were going to check out the bat. And after several weeks, I received a new one. If you are unable to get them to replace it, I guess you then have a BP bat. Good luck.

rocky026 - Not a rep just curious which dudley bat do you have? What year? How many swings on it?

Benji4 - Easton really! Until the Empire came out the salvo and elder were garbage. Now the Empire has decent pop but these things are flaking and braking early!

I believe it is the 2016 model LLESP 28oz. Probably 1100 to 1200 swings. It sounds like all the end load came loose from the glue. It was bought new and never been altered. Still no cracks other then spider cracking. Still has pop but no umpire will allow it to be used with the noise it makes now.

You probably won't get anywhere with Dudley on a soon to be 3 year old bat with that many swings on it. If I were you I would pop end cap off see if you can re glue end load back on to cap and re glue end cap in. Or if you can't re glue end load just remove it.

The EASTON Empire and the Senior Helmer are as good or better than any senior bat currently being produced. I have heard some Empire's didn't last that long, but mine has 500 swings on it and it is just as good today as it was when I took the wrapper off last January.

You run the risk with every senior bat of getting one that sometimes doesn't last.
