I have never used The One.  Generally, before considering a bat, I go to the site below.   They're pretty good, IMO.  Youtube videos too.

My industrial league provides bats now so teams can't cheat - Easton Synergies, mostly.   Other league I use the booger green Worth bat, but it's a little end heavy, and I like balanced bats because I find them easier to control to all fields.

http://batreviews.kellysultimatesports.com/
We've got a couple of Synergies. Used them of an occasion - good for some contact hitting, but I can't really hit'em out using them. No feel? I don't know why as the super teams all use them and knock them 400' +. I like the composite/two piece bats - more forgiving with my swing. I can laser a pitch 1' off the plate out over the center field fence with one - a Synergy would have it caught by the short.

I'm applying for Right Field a low stress area with Alcohol drinks and Naco chips standing on the foul line with cheerleaders.

Seriously I had a girlfriend once she played the local league hit a Home Run last time I saw her play bases loaded in the 7th they won by one run a good time it was.

Must be a feel thing.   Batting second, my job isn't to hit HRs, but I had a few "oopsies" this year with the Synergy.   The old Synergies, I loathed, but the new white ones I found ridiculously good.  To each his own.

Just go play right field stand 2 inches from the foul line and 20 feet from beer stand best position in Softball, low stress and timeouts are a luxury so down a 12 ounce then back on the field awaiting a fly ball.

Well, lost all three games today. Guys just all underperformed, or tried too hard. My fielding was solid and batting was good. Knees are wonky/sore, tho. How the fark did Mantle play a whole career with knees like this!? Hope we can win something tomorrow.

Damn sounds you guys need a new pitcher. Mickey just hit home runs walked the bases and stood still for fly balls. What size bat are you using chimps?

And he had god-given talent, let's not forget that. Swung a DeMarini FlySwatter (28) and an F4 (30) today. Stayed away from The Synergies, which the other lads on the board like. And yeah, we had about 4 guys who all tried pitching - they got rocked.  Grin

Genes rule in any sport ie Babe Ruth once ate I think 10 or 12 hotdogs before a game I think but then hit a home run. The F4 a nice bat. Agreed on Synergies I always fouled alot with those. I can throw a fastball straight down the strike zone with power but can't throw a curve worth a shit.

 I've been doing it for years, but I see a lot of guys dropping to the 26-27 oz range on bats.   Bat speed rules.
