New Rip-It comin' around the bend
Hey All you Rip-it enthusiasts and fans, like me.
I just got word that Rip it has two bats they're currently testing
for Senior ball and they'll be sending out a batch soon to some
guys like me to test as to how good they really are.
I can't wait.
They already made a bat that I liked better than the Ultra or the Combat
that barely missed being certified 1.20 BPF so they know
how to make a hot bat.

Ken Van Bogaert liked it a lot when we and some other seniors
hit a bunch of monster shots with it in Seattle
as you'll be able to see for yourself when Ken's new Softball hitting DVD
comes out this summer.
Many of my teammates on the Old A's loved the yellow monster
and look forward with me to testing Rip-It's new models.

I also heard that the Yellow Senior bat is "out of production"
as it was technically out of regulation for Senior use.
It was like the Ultra 2 but felt better to me, when swung.

I'll keep you posted.

Thanks einstein...definitely keeps us posted. I agree 100% on the performance of their bats. I love my yellow Rip-It....but unfortunately can only use it in a couple of leages. Thanks for the info.

Hey Guys,
I just got definitive word from Rip-it about the Senior bat
they're developing and it won't be available for testing
for at least 4 months and may be longer.
For those, like me, who've been waiting to see
what they'll come up with
we'll all have to wait to, at least, the middle of this year and perhaps
later on in the year.
