    saw the store had these and was wondering if anybody has hit them. Love the spinners since they hold up to the early morning dew. So if these are just as good I was going to take advantage of the coupon tomorrow

    Me either, I was a bit confused that they have the protac cover but they look molded in the picture

    Actually it says "unitac" rather than "protac".

    "Molded, stitchless BP Ball" which is how they stand up to moisture, I guess Never heard or seen these balls anywhere until you pointed them out. Thank you.

    I saw them when they released for one million dollars per ball. That's a bit of an exaggeration, but not that much for a purely bp ball.

    Ordered a dozen to see how they stack up to the tattoos...Can't see why they wouldn't...but since they say they're safe for asa and usssa, I imagine they're "softer" than rockets and the green/yellow spinr bp balls?

    Still cant beat the OG Evil BP for the $$ And the BP 52 is the way to go if your concerned about breakage. Proven technology for years.

    Have you done anything for the covers and water retention? I love the Evils but mine seem to retain water after a couple of rounds on a dewy morning

    @$60 a dozen I dont see any reason to buy them over the Evil BP52. Especially since there are customers with the Evil BP in their bags for years without failure. Not to mention we showed 10 years ago our 2 color design was a benefit to working on your hitting.

    What I mean is, is there a visual/feel change to the ball? Would I be able to tell the difference from the 3ish dozen of evils I already have?

    Description of the ball is vague. No cor/compression listed. Looks like a clone of Tattoo's NX3.

    Frankly, I think softball manufacturers should be making these molded balls a mainstream thing. They're vastly more durable than balls with regular covers and perform just fine.

    Suckers are expensive though. No league is going to buy molded balls for what they cost now.

    We had molded samples made for Evil in the same factory and 1, they were too expensive to produce and 2, they were not as consistent as the current Evils being made. As I said for the cost difference there is no real benefit since the Evil Bp has proven over 10 years to be exceptionally durable.
    Chil not really a detectable difference.
