I would use a 36 or 38 oz. A 32 was a toothpick. Most of the players today would have difficulty playing with those bats.Yes I was cheating, personally I didn't like using the juiced bats but that was what were given by our sponsor. I also hated the One Cryo bat, it was a POS but again, playing for free comes with some sacrifice. When I started playing we used 33 oz Tennessee thumpers and Howards furniture bats which I would use as a swing bat now. LOL
The portable compression instrument is not a bat tester. Nor does it determine whether exit speeds. It simple confirms the compression of the bat being tested is within the range of those which are approved.As far as bat testing by ASA goes, those portable compression testers are suspect at best. Have heard that they have passed Miken Ultra II's and failed out of the rapper ASA bats. I guess we will just have to disagree on exit speeds. I have had those big Magilla Gorilla guys hit balls back at me, I pitched and in 2008 at 47 years old the ball was coming so fast I was chucking and ducking when the 3 HRS were gone and they had to shoot the middle to try and keep the ball in the yard.
And the "had to shoot the middle" just proves my belief that today's players are absolutely clueless as to how to play the game. Yes, they know and hone the mechanics of the swing, but when it comes down to controlling the bat, many cannot alter their swings. Quite a few have one swing and that is all they know as has been in evident in all the Border Battles. And just to show you how smart these guys are, many do not change bats when the HRs are gone. If I was out of HRs and had a hard time keeping the ball in the park, I might move to wood because these guys are big enough and have a swing which will still send the ball with a single wall.
