Has anyone heard anything on when these Dudley's are shipping?
For top tier Dealers... Between Feb 4th and Feb. 15th so far...? Check W/SBF for their ETA
Who would be a top tier dealer
figure it out... LOL!!!
I spent more time than I'm proud of trying to figure these out without a google search & then realized you forgot one. So now you can spend a couple minute running through names in your head ...
The first one is all you need...PM milocoman
Yes I know those 2 ,LOL
Shout out for Milocoman and Softballfans. Just ordered Dudley HOTW and was told they are expecting them any day now. Milocoman gave a great price. Can't wait to get it!
Big Dave did a new review on the Hotw.Cracked 5 out of 7 bats some under 10 swings.Dudley has a problem.
My teammate blew up one today in 30 swings

Just saw Dave Vs video, Man he was pissed Lol
Dave's vid showed 3 cracking in about 30-35 total swings
One popped in 3-4 swings..hitting indoors!
Dang, this sucks!
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.
I know for a fact Dudley will replace all the bats that have broken quickly. For the guys I know personally that own the new 2019 Dudley HOT 14" and 12 " --ALL 16 bats have broken within 50 cuts and all where hit outside above 75 degrees. Personally , the reissue Dudley 2.0 12" will be the best seller for Dudley IMO.
Not sure why they advertise this as a 12”
More like 13”-13.5”
It's like shoe sizes...Made in China 12" = 13.5" US
I got to hit my 14" 28oz model a little bit yesterday and more so today both off a tee and live BP... this bat freaking sucks.... what a mess and a toilet engineering failure that was approved by Dudley. Just noticed right above the "H" there is small shark tooth crack... I am so disappointed by this mess Dudley has done to us. Once that crack gets larger I'll be asking for an RA# and sell the replacement... It swings like an oversized fastpitch bat... I'm sticking w/ my 12" 2.0's, Adidas 12" 27oz, 28oz Wicked... Anyone with a connection to Dudley please share my feeling... They need to stick with the OG's, and the 2.0's bats... stop messing up your bats...
Probably cause you put too much Ass in it.
Pics or it didnt happen
Second pitch and my 27oz 14 INCH HOT W had a 4 inch crack where the HOT is at the end of the bat. Hit the 26oz HOT W 14 inch just the opposite. A dead bat.
UPDATE I received my replacement. Didn't have any 27oz 14". Gave me choice took the 12" lift. Upon the box they sent the 12"HOT W. My hitting buddy out of town so I took the tee the12" HOT W and the new 2.0
. Took 12 swings with hot w and 24 with the 2.0.
The 2.0 out distance the HOT W by 30 feet. So much for hot. Plus I had a little crack. Maybe it's just paint. Why would I want another return when they haven't fixed the problem. I guess I'll have to eat this one.
Received my 14 inch HOTW from softballfans last week but have been unable to swing it because I had knee surgery a month ago and can"t swing for another month or so. Wondering if anyone else has received/swung theirs and have any feedback on the durability.
Have you not read the last 15 or so posts? Or
SSUSA message board?
Don't go on the
SSUSA board. Was curious if this same thing was happening with the ones softballfans shipped. Basically, I was holding out hope that it was just a bad batch and not the entire line.
If you are over 70 years old, or a real light base hitter then it might hold up. Otherwise your SOL. (nothing personal, just facts)
Anyone know the correct contact info for dudley???
I went to http//:www.dudleysports.com and it took me to the spalding website.
I hear ya! Watched Dave's last video on the HOTW as well. Just a little frustrated (like most that bought one of these). I hope Dudley steps up and fixes this.
That's it. Spalding owns Dudley.
