Ultra bats
All this year I'd go to a tourney thinking boy this isn't like the old 2003 ultra. Well my friend and I took all the different Ultra bats I have which is the Ultra2, Maxload Ultra2,Launch 510, gray,maroon and yellow combat. Well after hitting these bats 4or5 bps I found there is nothing wrong with these bats. I use used Dudley 375/44 core balls and the ball felt great just like the old days. When I go to tourneys now days it feels I'm hitting with a ASA bat and not a good ball. I'm starting to wonder is it worth taking a day off, hotel room and gas money to hit a bad ball. Just give us a few good balls and if it goes over we'll go get them or we will have to buy buy more. Let us get a little smarter and keep the balls out of the sun. With 95 degrees the ball is 260 compression. Do the math you loose 5 pounds for every degree over 72 degrees.

Lefty, A group of us hit twice a week and have the same results as you have described. The balls used in Atlanta were from different manufacturer's than those used in Pensacola, but the results were the same...See ya in Dalton and Galletin

Hey guys,
I agree with the above.
Since I sell balls to the younger groups, I can tell you they prefer the EVILS or TRUMPS with the MICRO-CELL-TECHNOGOLY (MCT).
These balls hold up very well in the heat and humidity. Last year in Dalton they used the TRUMP STOTES with MCT and they hit very well. Too bad the same ball is not used for every tournament and by all associations.
Airbosn if you have any influence in Pensacola see if they can get away from the BADEMS they were good last year but terrible this year.
The Dudleys are usually pretty good but this year seem to wilt in the heat like last weekend.
Just some info and my input.
God Bless and take care,

We have just started using the Baden senior balls. So far we find they fly better the Trump but not my much. Price was better by a few bucks.

Played my first tourney in Carson City this year at the Rockin Reno. Had a blast and love that everyone is there to have a great time. I play with a lot of younger guys and the teams we play against always seem to be talking trash to everyone. It was a relief to play in Carson.We used a Trump Stote and seemed to a great ball. I know that 40's are not Seniors but it sure seems like it when you play with a bunch of 20 year olds...
