    Daughters easton synergy bat (the 06 silver and blue) has suddenly developed a slight rattle inside when shaken up and down. Does that mean it's junk now? Any info is greatly appreciated.

    if thats a composite bat, its toast, the rattle is probably a piece of the carbon fiber from the inside of the bat broken off and the rest will follow shortly.

    Bat rattle

    According to the info given at the officials/coach's clinic this year, the umps are supposed to listen for rattles and disqualify bats. That is for federation, don't know about the other organizations.

    Correction,,,,my mistake, it is the 2007 SCN1B Easton Synergy CNT, not the 2006. I bet Easton won't want to replace one that's been used for 2 years. Even though that sure doesn't seem like a long enough life for a $240 bat. I know travel ball is brutal on all equipment, is that a fairly normal amount of time to expect a bat to last? My daughter has really loved it, so I'm going to be forced to try and find one just like it....lol.....anybody know of a closeout sale going on, let me know!!!...lol.

    past experience on composite bats is one year life span, thats one year of hs and one year of tb....double wall bats are usually good for two years of both...technology is changing, but i dont think that the bat companys want to produce bats good for more than one or two years...mostly one year....jmho

    NOTE : TO THE WISE !!!

    Generally a composite bat is only good for one season. I was told by several college coaches one season ,new bat,old bat loses it's punch !!!
