Discussion: Dont blame SSUSA for the ball problem.

Lets just stop bitching and be happy we are actually able to play this game. While we are ALL impacted by this supply issue I can assure you this will not happen again as long as Im in the softball business.

I would venture to guess there is not enough of that Xrock in stock to fill the need. Beyond that I dont know.

Discussion: Dont blame SSUSA for the ball problem.

The problem is BSN really does not want to be in the softball business. They dont care about it and see it as a pain in the ass more than anything. They refused to stock my Evil version of the microcell which would have been a prefect replacement when the stote sold out. Trust me I know first hand whats going on as its negative impact will be costing Evil Sports a few hundred thousand in sales this year. So while you may not agree 100% of the time with what SSUAS does you can not blame them for this, they are doing the best they can.

Discussion: Which Ball travels further: ASA or SSUSA

We have been out of our hugely successful Evil BP ball for 6 months. NO one wins when this happens. Hopefully the people in Washington realize you cant shut down a world economy for a year then just flip a switch and have supply back like it was before. This is the worst supply issue we have faced at Evil Sports in the 18 year history of our brand. Im just taking the hits this year and looking forward to better supply in the upcoming months.

Foothills, its not a $$ thing at all. Its a global supply chain issue that affecting all overseas commerce. I own the rights to Microcell and I cant even get them right now. Truth is you should be thanking SSUSA every day for making Microcell the standard ball and realize its not their choice to go without them for this next couple weeks.

Discussion: New Senior bat technology and performance insights

While Im not going to get into who's words they are, I agree with what you are saying Alan. We all love that soft feel but there is a point where the crispness is gone due to too many microfractures in the composite lay up. I experienced this exact phenomenon last week playing in Florida. I was hitting my well broken in green Adidas and I could feel what I call the bat "Over flexing".I dont need a compression tester to know what this feels like. I know that bat is now too soft for my swing speed and its time to move on.

Discussion: DUDLEY 2019 LIGHTNING HOTW

Guys, when turning in your cracked bat make sure you document the process every step of the way. Start from the day and place you purchased it from, who you spoke with when processing your return, pictures of your receipts if you have one and pictures of the serial #s.

Discussion: DUDLEY 2019 LIGHTNING HOTW

Unfortunately its the same old game for bat companies, have to introduce the NEW hotter bat every year and keep tinkering with what is already a great mix of materials. It will be interesting to see if there is ever a statement as to technically what happened to this batch. The simple uneducated guess was they didnt roll enough layers when the made the shells. Its a delicate balance between too many layers and not enough. Now Im far from a bat engineer and there a many other parts of this equation so thats just my simplified statement.

As bad of a reputation hit this may cause Dudley they know how to do the right thing and Im sure they will. I expect they figure out the problem quickly and rerelease the quality of bats you have come to expect.

Discussion: New Dudley

Looks like Dudley has a problem with the Hot W. In 10 years I have yet to hear someone blow up a new bat using Evil Bp balls in 70 degree temps. I have to say I was a bit skeptical on the durability of a bat that was alleged to be that much hotter than the current Adidas offerings.

Discussion: use of High COR, Low Compression ball

Your scores will be much lower and defense will be a premium with 52-300. People with proper mechanics will still hit that ball 300 feet but not nearly as often and those with the excuse me HRs will be simple F7s

Since I own the rights to "Microcell Technology" for softball Im very happy to see the people finally realized its the best choice. Look for a Evil Microcell ball to be released approved for senior use by the spring.

NY, yes the Evil ISA Microcell will be a great comparison. If you try getting them at evil sports.com and I can get you a discount code

Discussion: ASA 44-375 Balls

Jethro, Thanks for using the Evil BP at your hitting club. Let me know if you need more as I know a guy lol. My number is below.
We are very happy Alan Tanner chose to use our "Microcell" technology when developing the specifications for his ball. As people have said here, balls with the "Microcell" tech design are the most consistent across varying temperature ranges.

Discussion: Batting Practice Balls-- Evil BP balls (orange/white) vs Tattoo NX3 Balls (green/yellow)

Hummm lets see, Your bat broke and almost 10 years of user experience with the Evil bp ball would indicate it was not the cause. Deductive reasoning usually wins.
