2014 asa z2000

Just read they are putting a ring in the bat as a "rev limiter". Anyone here of this?

2014 ASA Z2000 – The ASA version of this softball bat gets an added ring in the barrel to meet the new ASA Softball ball exit speed standard. This ring is on the ASA Z2000 only, without it the Z2000 would be too hot. The ring prevents the barrel from flexing too much, which would allow for added trampoline effect, essentially this is a “rev limiter” that prevents excessive home runs. The ASA version is also approved for USSSA play, but if you play more USSSA, get the USSSA specific version below.

Where did you get that nonsense from? The 2014 Z2K is going to be ASA only. All of the previous versions of the ASA Z2K did have two discs inside them to do what is described above and being referred to as a "rev limiter".

i dont think so restricter plates have holes in them.. come on redneck you should know that... rev limiters are usually something to hold the throttle back...

I would stick to the manufacturer forums here. Not that you won't find a bunch of BS there either, but you should also get a legit response or be able to find one. Unless LS really upped the stakes in the 2014 Z2K, you don't want it anyway. There are better ASA bats out there for less money. The USSSA Z2K is a different story, but obviously you're not using it in ASA.
