I have been using some of the composite bats and having success. They have a good sweet spot and don't get all dented up like those expensive baits.

Good luck,

Corey Bechtold

p.s.

Last year I led our team in HR's (and I'm no slugger tongue.gif)

You first need find out what kind of bat your league accepts as far as composites and single wall double wall, junk like that.

Personaly, I only play in single wall leagues now. I like to have the batter decide the hits, not the bat.

I am pretty sure Windom is single wall unless you play for the mamas

A little spendy but any good bat will cost a couple hundo at least.......My personal favorites in the last few years are the Techfire Fury (red bat) has pop but not like the Mikens and other loaded bats, and another line I like are the Easton Synergys......asa and usssa models both have pop but not as easy to hit a smasher like with the Mikens......I hate Miken bats for the fact that they have too much pop and even when you miss you can still take someones head off!!! These other bats can still send a ball flying but if you don't hit the sweat spot you aren't going to still hit it over the fence.......

My old boss in Kansas City had a Freak bat. It was outlawed by most leagues, but was grandfathered in for his league. Supposedly, even the least powerful hitter could hit them out on a consistent basis with it. He got it off ebay, and the company must have had a snaffew and accidently sent him 2.

Look I still play at 42 yr.old and I am a gap hitter singles and doubles and on occasion triples and I love my DeMarini F-2, it's a mid level bat not to top of the line but it's been a durable doublewall and once in a while I go deep with it. I think I paid $150 for mine and I finished the season batting .632

You seriously keep track of your batting avg. in slow pitch softball? Did you take in to account the guy wearing jeans that missed three of your hits cause he was half in the bag??? grin.gif Just kidding and giving you a hard time!!!!

I wish I could be out playing ball right now but I have a bum shoulder and didn't want to go through another year of not being able to throw a ball....hopefully I can get back on the diamond by the end of the season!!! Good Luck to all in there respective softball seasons!!!

The miken freak is outlawed in the ASA after this year, so if someone you know has one, hit the snot out of it. Myself, I love the Anderson line, and the demarini EVO EX is a newer bat that has drawn my attention. I usually don't use a freak unless we have homers left and there are guys on... Call me a wuss, but I just like hitting the freak. Its fun to get an extra 30 feet on the ball. grin.gif

      Thank for the update and photo Dave and Diane! Cliff

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.
