Hi Everyone,

It's great to find this newsgroup. I've been going around for the past month
thinking about the coming season.

As for the string about bats, I'm alittle amused by the amount of money paid
for some of these. I play modified and our team has bveen to the Mayors Cup
tournament here in Boston two of the past three years. Due mostly to our
hitting and defense.

As for our bats, we find that the $20.00 specials from department stores are
just fine and last longer than their more exspensive cousins.

My question is what advantage do those of you who pay, at times over a hundred
dollars, for bats find with these bats. Please excuse my lack of knowledge.

Tim D.

I guess it depends on what you want out of the bat.  I've owned a DeMarini
DISTANCE (Double Wall), used Blue, Black, and Gold TPS's, a TPS Thin Wall,
A TPS Power Dome, and a Worth Signature Power Cell (Jim Fuller), and
I use the PowerCell.  It's personal preference, really.  

There is a definite difference in the Coefficient of Elasticity, or
whatever it's called.  I don't use nice bats in cold weather, though.

Next year, I think I'll go with the Fuller SuperCell.  I've got WTP
disease with the cheap bats, and the TPS Black and Fuller PC work best
for my swing.  Makes that 310'-320' difference sometimes.  Of course,
my bad swing messes it up most of the time anyway, so...

Use what's comfortable, but try a high performance bat.  I know people
that sleep with their DISTANCES.  I bought one and sold it almost two
months later -- can't stand the weighting of it.

Hi, great to be here.
Last year I was lucky to get a Demarini Double Wall. Even though I do not
play I did lend it to our ladies softball team and members of mens softball
teams. They are thrilled with the extra pop it gives and have lost a few
balls over walls. I must admit we are in SOUTH AFRICA were equipment is
limited. I have seen ladies softballers run out HRs after hitting hot
grounders past shortstop and outfielders. We do not have any other bats but
Easton to compare with and this does not have that same oomph. Well till we
get out of the backwoods.
See ya.

To the best of my knowledge the demarini double-walled bats are still illegal
to use here in the states for most associations.

nezaam- wait till you see eastons new reflex. thinnest of all the double
wall bats. in sept 1995 promo bats were used at mens major fastpitch
national tourn. all eastons dented, as did demarini. my advice to you is
to hold out for the worth lighthouse and the tps double wall. they will be
much better
