Talk to me about balls, Newbery balls.
« on: November 28, 2017, 09:17:34 AM »

Morning all,

Our league is considering moving to Newbery as a ball supplier, just wondered if anyone has:

1) Any experience using them, and are they any kop.
2) Know's who actually makes them, I'm guessing Newbery is just white labeling here.

@SteffanLangholz I understand Denmark uses them currently?

Yeah we use them in t-20.. They're utter bs.
Limited swing out the box, good shape retention. No endurance.. Especially not in moist areas..

First few seasons we had them were fine. 2 years ago the league changed from them because most teams were going through 3 an innings. Didnt hold up at all. They swing a fair bit until they basically exploded
