Tattoo Nx3 softballs
I notice on the website that the Nx3 softballs have the core and compression numbers listed. I didn't see an ASA 44/375 is there such an Nx3? Am I right in assuming that all the Nx3 44/375 softballs are identical except for the cosmetic differences for the individual softball associations? My last question is what are the core/comp numbers on the Nx3 balls branded as "classic"? Thanks!

ASA does not allow a .44/375 ball for championship play so we did not put the ASA stamp on the .44/375. We do have them without the stamp. In league play the ASA rule book does not apply. It is for Championship play only.

Being that most leagues can use any ball that is .44/375 I felt no need to license the ball and pay fees for a ball that technically is not legal.

As for the USSSA balls they have not had cor/comp on them for many years.

The classic plus ball is a .52/275-300 and the Classic M ball is a .40/325.

Tattoo, I ordered a dozen 44/375 Nx3 balls today. I'm going to try and get a few whacks in if we get another unseasonable day here in Michigan. So for you northerners, we'll see how the ball performs on cooler days. I'll report back if we get some BP.

It was 42 here today and a few of us showed up to swing. I got home and my dozen balls arrived via UPS about a half hour later so maybe Friday I'll get a cool weather test of them. The forecast here for Christmas day is supposed to be 63 degrees so I figure I get to hit them soon. Can't wait!

If you are going to hit in those temps I would keep them in the house until you go to the field.

Cold/cool weather update; For all you northerners out there we have now hit this ball outdoors in temperatures ranging from 31 degrees to about 50 degrees. The age of the hitters ranged from 55 to 84. Our Nx3 44/375 balls performed admirably. We had them mixed in with our usual BP balls. The difference was noted in both velocity and a distinct off the bat "tonk" sound that the Nx3 made upon bat contact. It should also be noted that despite the wet grounds the balls absorbed no water and the lettering on the balls remained intact. These balls stayed cleaner and remained solid and uncut. At first blush these balls are a good product that will outlast other balls both in durability and appearance. We are going to propose this ball for use in our league this year.

Would like more information on the new ball is this ball like the ones we hit in the 70s that the nsa used that were orange and a lime green rubber coated? If so the ball would go oblong if you didn't hit it square and was a nighmare on the infield because it bounced so much and could not really get a true bounce. Just wondering if some one has used the ball other than hitting practice?

The ball is nothing like the old rubber coated softballs of days gone by. These balls have been used in leagues since June of this year. Everyone that has used it in leagues has already committed to them for 2016.

There is NO softball that is close when it comes to durability and no non cheater balls can compare in performance.
