Default How good are these 11" 44/375 balls

Playing in a coed tournament for SIDS this weekend and they are making is use the 11 inch 44/375 for the women. Not sure why since we use the 12" 52/300 in league coed. This is all I could fund local. What can I expect out of these balls?

Not a lot. The thunder heats are actually pretty good but the thunder sy's that I have hit sucked. If you have an Academy near by, they should have thunder heats. Anything better pretty much requires ordering online.

Our academy didn't have the 44/375. Had the old 47's and utrip. Funny thing is, we don't play utrip in my town. Have a mom and pop shop that had these in stock. They were going to order some and would get whatever I wanted, but the truck might make it in Friday. We have some good hitters so maybe they will be ok.

We actually hit those SY's in my Denver league (at least the 12", haven't looked at the 11" closely), but I think they are 52's. Do they make both? Either way, teammate has been killing em with his OG Flex, I have done well with L6, and 2 of our girls have been killing em with the Mercy. They each hit a 250-275 shot this past weekend which is probably 50' farther than usual. I can put some of that on that Mercy…oh mercy what a bat. Wish they made it in a 28.

They make the 52/300 in a SY. The 52/300 ZN hycons composite are better.

No one makes a 52 11" yet. We play ASA here and girls hit the 44/375 11".

If I would have known last week I would have got the evils. Didn't want to take the chance on them not showing up on time. So I got what I could local and the sy was my only option.
