    Yeah, .52s fly great. I think I see just as many HRs with them as I ever did with .44s. With the bats available now it really doesn't matter how crappy the ball is, it'll still go.

    Today was the first in a while that I focused on cutting the ball and I'd forgotten how little I do it in BP and games...

    Cutting has its uses. I don't do it all the time, but when I want a low, hard liner in the gap I'll cut a ball. Its a good skill to have. Cutting .52s makes them soar too.

    Guys, it has nothing to do with hr’s. It’s safety of the players. The second and third hops have been very unreliable and dangerous.

    That's an excellent point. 44/400s never bounce and the obvious safety decision is to go to a ball that scores five times higher on the impact severity index.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this is the actual thought process of some of the people at NSA though to be fair. Some of their people take being uneducated to an artistic level. It's an insult to bro science to call what they consider science bro science.

    NSA lost customers to freedom (44 425ish) utrip (classic M) and sb nation (44 375) around here when they went full 52


    this is about market share and gimmics

    with the way you field the ball, any hop is dangerous

    Who is waiting for a third hop from a 52?
