Help all of us out
Hey Guys,

Another post about bats that are less than.
The new Senior Worth bat breaks like an Ultra 2 or Combat.
The remedy is the Rip-it Senior bat
which tests no hotter than the Ultra 2 in independent testing
and lasts 10 times longer.
Do us all a favor if you get a chance
and drop Carl from NorCal an email
to say that we want/deserve a bat that is comparable
with the Ultra 2 and Combat in performance
and is way more durable to be allowed a major senior association
like NorCal.
His email is

What's Up witht he breaking of the U2'S and the Launch?

Don't get it? We here in Hawaii have lots in fact too many U2s in Senior play and in some leagues throughout town.
We don't have a major breaking problem here with either bat.
Yes some U2s have broken bec' of longevity and some have broken w/a 14" ball bec' they hit the ball at the very end of the bat, but no way near as much as posted on this site.
The way it sounds like these sticks are breaking every other day with all these posts.
What's Up?
I sell quite a few U2s and the Launch has hit town and is selling nicely w/no problems.
When playing Senior ball I have never swung a U2. Am gong to try the Launch just to see what's it like.
I swing a DeMarini 375 and F2 and now the F3 and also have the Senior Combat original have had no problems hitting the senior ball that is played in Las Vegas be it for distance or base hits.
U2s make seniors more of themselves than themselves.
Just an opinion, enjoy the game and don't forget to smile it's contagious.
As always...Dyin fo' Play!

STONES 1B: I have been told by 2 SGMA members the following: 1) Softballs r a lil' bigger. 2) Softballs r a lil' heavier. 3) ASA, told the ball Manufacturers, to TONE DOWN, balls.

Bigger & Heavier balls, r what have been causing Bats to break. 4 myself, I try & hit 44 - 47 cor balls in the Winters Months. I will only hit 50 cor balls in the Summer Months.

If, the grass is wet, I do not hit my "GOOD" BATS. As far as the U-2's, I hit this bat only 5 times before an important game.

I know many older SENIOR MEN, that do not hit the U-2 over 250 ft. 4 these men, their U-2s, last 1000 swings or more. ( Ages of these young dogs is 70 yrs old & older.)

Hope this may help..... I also, believe that when the U-2 was banned 3 yrs ago & the NON-WARRANTY U-2's were sold, I have NOT GOTTEN over 150 swings on a U-2.
