Hi HJ,

Here's some info from Softball Fans:

Small sample size, but looks like it's balanced, hot, and maybe not so durable?

mad dog, I have swung The SR1. It is a very good Senior bat but it is balanced and not endloaded. To me it is made lighter than your usual bat. In other words if you swing a 26 oz. bat I would go with a 27 or 28 oz. Has a lot of Flex in it because it is a 2 piece bat. They say it is made stiffer by the 4 walls of composite that they use. Just some info on the bat. Hope it helps.

Thank you Gorilla Boy. I am looking for a backup to my yellow MM I bought from you. Does more flex
help or hurt the guy who doesn't generate 300 foot power. This is a wonderful Blog but there are many of us who literally are in a different league- less skilled.

I was wondering about another Demarini bat. The brown geezer juggernaut senior bat. I heard it was a prototype bat. I've been playing senior ball for almost 10 years and I only seen one of them. It's in my bag. Tried calling Wilson, Demarini, they don't know what I'm talking about. Would like to sell. Thanks.

Neck10-Rickey, yes I have the Trump softballs. I will send you an e-mail. Thanks.

To HJ on the flex in a bat. To me it really comes down to individual swings. It is 50/50 when talking about flex. Some like it and some don't. That is why I always say if you can try someones bat to see how you hit the ball with flex or without flex is good. The best way to tell if someting works for you is to give it a try. Don't just by it because someone told you to.

Everybody is different and you need to experiment. I myself do not like a lot of flex in the bat. For me personally the stiffer the bat the better I like the bat. Reason being if I can get the stiff bat to flex I feel like I am going to hit the ball further. Like I said it is up to the individual.

The Black Centanarian is a excellent bat. It is a Combat product. The White is only a 10 inch barrel, that is the only difference. I am taking preorders on the bat right now. I will sell for $175.00 + tax with free shipping. They will be in by the end of the week. I have a whole bunch coming in by Friday.

HJ.....I have been using the DeMarini "The One" since January and here is the straight from me....(I also use a Reebok Melee End Load) After about 50 hits off tee the end cap came off the DeMarini, I called DeMarini and they took the bat back and repaired ( at no cost to me); now for the positive side....As said above order heavier than you normally use, bat hot after about 30 hits; I am 64 yrs old hit 320'-340' with Reebok and the same with DeMarini
I disagree with Tri18; This is a very good product, well worth the sale prices you can get on it.

Tri18....I am sure your testing is more scientific; I have found the DeMarini Senior The One (as a two piece bat) stiffer than the one piece bats. Also a hit off the "sweet spot" is not as forgiving as the Reebok. However as mentioned above they both are very close in distance,for me. And remember the DeMarini is a 1:20 bat not a 1:21 like other senior bats.
