NSA (52/275) and ASA (52/300) Ball Review
Still playing local leagues and tournaments so thought I'd put a question out to all of you. Which ball in each category have you found to be the best. Looking for an overall average of durability and distance. Located in North central IN so don't have to be concerned with high temperature conditions to often. I have always been a fan of the "Evils" but there are so many out there now it's hard to test them all.

i agree with tattooball....we use the tattoo(not the NX3 yet tho) for our leagues and most every other team does...still trying to talk the coach into the NX3 ball..but he has a supply of the regular tattoo AD Starr balls..also what the local sporting goods store sells.....we have hit the NX3 ball in bp(we have only a couple of them)and they are holding up real good.

Have had two leagues switch to the new NX3 ball and nothing but good news about the ball. Our league tried them in fall ball and recorded games played. We actually used one ball for 12 games and it still hit good, nothing but good reviews on the NX3. TATTOO HAS A WINNER IN THE NX3!!!!

Our neighborhood league is thinking of switching to the 52/30 balls we use ASA bats. Most of the players are older or non-tournament type players. We currently use 44/375 balls. We play on a field with 250 ft fence all the way around. There are no more than 6-10 players capable of hitting the ball out. All are worried about loosing pop and not being able to hit the ball out of the in field. My question is it possible that the 52 core combined with the lower compression will actually work in their favor? Kind of like low compression golf balls, We have some ordered to try 1st. any thoughts?

Not at all like a lo-comp golf ball; all your players will lose at least 25% distance . . .

NX3 BALLS ARE THE BEST OUT THERE. I HAVE OVER 100 OF THEM IN BOTH 44-375 AND THE TWO COLOR B.P. BALLS. I HAVE HIT THE

FIRST BATCH OF THEM FOR ALMOST A YEAR AND THEY STILL HIT LIKE NEW. IF I WANTED TO I COULD STICK THEM IN A BARREL,

WASH THEM WITH SOME SOAP AND WATER AND THEY WOULD LOOK LIKE NEW. I USE THESE FOR B.P. WITH FLORIDA AUTOMATED

SHADE 55M DURING TOURNAMENTS AS WELL. I EVEN HAD ONE RETURNED TO ME AFTER SPENDING A MONTH IN A PALM TREE

THIS PAST SUMMER. ASIDE FROM SOME FADING FROM U.V. EXPOSURE, YOU COULDNT TELL A DIFFERENCE FROM THE NEWER BALLS

AS FAR AS PERFORMANCE. ALL OF THESE BALLS PROBABLY AVERAGE 500 HITS ON THEM WITH NO NOTICEABLE DEGRADATION IN

PERFORMANCE. THEY ALSO HIT BETTER IN THE HEAT THAN ANY TRADITIONAL BALL OF COMPARABLE COR AND COMP. I KNOW

I SOUND LIKE A PAID COMMERCIAL FOR THESE BALLS, BUT I JUST CALL THEM LIKE I SEE THEM. BEST BALL PERIOD!
