@Fearless you’ll agree that since the sanwa balltop passes the playing test and not the bat top, it means the bat has just that extra leverage that will be enough to unscrew itself . The threaded end on the JLF shaft isn’t very long neither.
The battops I’ve seen on JLF never came off probably because they were custom made plastic type, with the insert recessed deeper into the handle , the insert being a thick one , brand name . Sanwa seems to go the opposite route thse days, the new clear bats being slightly less recessed from what I’ve read.
Anyways it’s good to have a short shaft solution, thanks for the input, personally I prefer short as possible for shmups and fighters, but do not care for beat’em alls. Did the JLF shaft on the koreans
It would be interesting to hear what players think of the silent crown 307. If ever you give it a try tell us!
@d3v there was a bug with the posting of my reply (the one stuffed with links) to Fearless and kkolding in this thread : it didn’t appear , it came back to a blank form, so I had to rewrite it from scratch immediately after but now I see both versions are online (hours after)… please delete the second one which basically is almost the same…
