    In my experience that isn't the case (off a tee), in ~30F weather. My bro science/feel says the 40/525 is turning into a 25/700, and the 52/300 is turning into a 40/525.

    There's some truth to that, like jbo said, a 52/300 should perform better than a 44/400 with a wood bat. There's ranges to these things as well. If a bat has too low a compression it may not be able to "rebound" as well and performance won't be better than it was 200 swings ago. And if a ball...

    League Ump Fees

    Yeah the whole "if you pay for something you value it more" effect is crazy. I've asked individuals to sub this year ~20 times, and asked full teams about 6 times, and have gotten one total sub. Conversely I've played 43 games this year and only 13 were with my actual teams.

    lol 3 digit temperature.... and ball distance...

    Yeah humid air should increase carry (humid air is less dense), but the humidity ****s with the ball (reduces exit speed). Cold air is denser than hot air as well, but the same thing happens to the ball, heat = softer = lower exit velo. (Although I think really cold days, around freezing or...

    Need an opinion

    I always hear "we would never do that" but in practice I rarely see teams actually bend/ignore a rule for the benefit of the other team (there's a reasonable number of no ump leagues around here). So I'd recommend strictly enforcing the rules if it's to your benefit, and don't be mad when the...

    WTF does that even mean?

    Me or the glove?

    What does that mean? What again? Blood pressure is a little high? Dropping line drives are pretty tough FYI.

    It's in the title. FYI that channel is 99.9% sponsored in some way by Demarini, they constantly plug their bats, not exactly an unbiased review.

    anyone has any experience using "Pop Toss Green one"?

    I got mine early in the year. I always used a bucket for protection (now using 2 as they recommend) but it took a couple shots over a lot of BP and survived until a shot a few weeks ago. They sent out a new part for free to Canada no questions asked and quickly, and it's back to working. It's...

    USSSA/ISA bat compared to OG Flex

    A broken in Flex is pretty soft, the new bats might be better but I don't think the difference is huge.

    Girl Pitching Coed

    What? College softball player sounds good, but the talent level drops fast once you get past the top 75 teams or so (and there's 1600+ college softball teams). Even in the elite top 30 D1 games, a 240 foot shot is considered a bomb (~74mph exit speed). With a mask and other protection, go for...

    anyone has any experience using "Pop Toss Green one"?

    I think I'm getting around 20 feet off mine, pitching off grass. I'll echo a lot of Terror's frustration though.

    Easton Plague

    Christan Dowling, an Easton rep, said FF2 but she could be mistaken. I haven't seen any website which refers to it having 360 Exact carbon which I believe is what they advertise the FF2 as having, so maybe it is FF1, as it's also a SP18 model. Edit: NVM, it's a SP19 model (SP19PL), so it...

    Choose between 3 bats

    All are obviously good, but since you already have a somewhat recent Miken I'd go with the Nautalai.
