Thanks Again for the help.

I will most likely get the balanced.

Discussion: 2021 Demarini senior bats


Thanks for the input. I have been swinging an EL for the last 6-8 years but have been thinking about going back to a balanced. I may wait until more reviews are out on the EL bats before I order. It does sound like these bats have large sweet spots.

Discussion: 2021 Demarini senior bats



Hi Folks:

I have decided to buy one of the new Demarini bats but cant decide on the balanced or mid load. I watched Dave V's review of the balanced and he gave it very high marks. Have any of you hit the mid load and if so what do you think of it?

Also are any of you on this board Demarini reps who I could purchase one from?

Thanks:

Any team looking for a great person and very good player should contact Bob. He would most likely be your fastest player and best outfielder. He is also a very tough out.

We play at Papogo Park next week starting Tuesday and I am wondering if any of the equipment vendors will be there and also will the concession stand be open.

Hi John:

I am sorry to hear the legendary ARO Glass Clubbers will be no more. I had the pleasure of being a part of your team a few years in league and one full season and they were some of my favorite years in senior softball. We had a blast plus played some pretty good softball. I thank all of you for being such a big part of Northwest Senior Softball. You guys will be missed at the RAC.

I have to ask who you will be playing for after ARO?

Thank You:

I agree with you Jawood. I believe Mrs Inslee is enjoying his TV time way too much. He did fit in nicely with his lady friends on the View.

I believe the playing part will not be a problem in local tournaments. When you have to jump in a plane and stay in a hotel room is where I have an issue at least for now.

Hi SSUSA:

While we are all hoping and praying for our country and our families I ask that you consider allowing a buy and sell section of the board just until we are safe to play again. Any items advertised either wanted to sell or wanted to buy must be softball related.

Thank You:

Discussion: New melee


Hi:

A few of us hit my 27.5 12" EL Suncoast the other day and everyone of us thought it was a great bat. I like the old soft barrel bats and to me that is what this bat feels like when you make contact. It has a large sweet spot for a 12" bat. I usually swing either a 27 or 28oz and this one is a 27.5. I liked it so much I ordered a 26.5 yesterday. One of the other guys that hit it also ordered one.

Thanks:

About how many swings did it take to get the 12" broke in?

Discussion: New Adidas Senior Bats


Hi All:

I received my 12" Suncoast Melee max and it has been too cold to hit it yet but it definitely feels more end loaded than last years red Adidas. The handle feels quite a bit thinner so it feels like you can get a little more bat speed. Can't wait to get out and hit it. I usually swing a 28oz bat so I bought the 27.5 and to me it feels pretty close in weight.

Thanks:

Discussion: Launch Angle


Hi All:

I was told at the end of last season that one thing I need to work on was launch angle. I usually hit the ball hard but rarely hit a fly ball. My question is to get the right launch angle is the answer in adjusting your stance, hands, grip or?

Thanks for the suggestions.

Hi Mr Wolf

Thanks for the update. I should have a red 12" Melee Max delivered in the next couple days. Can't wait to put a few swings on it but it is kind of cool out here so not sure if I will swing it Friday. If I like the way a bat is weighted I can usually find the sweet spot most of the time.

Thank You:

Great post Mr Imlay and I believe every competitive ballplayer should think the same as you do.

So is the new red Suncoast bat the same barrel length as last years red Adidas? If so that will be the one I will get. If it is not I will probably go with the green one. I head they swing a little light. I currently rotate between a 27 and 28oz.

Thanks

Cowboy19, Did you hit the 13" EL or 12"? Is the 12" the same barrel length as last years red Adidas? I am going to get one but just can't decide which one.
