To whom it may concern,
Flashing Zing Bails
It has been brought to our attention that on the packaging of the Backyard Zing bails, the warranty clearly state that it is for use with a soft ball or a tennis ball only.
We have contacted Zing and they have pointed out that the product is a less sophisticated version than the Zing bails used in the professional game, that is it ‘designed down’ to make the product
We are therefore banning the bails from hardball league competitions due to the potential safety of players. A version of the Zing bails are currently being developed which will be advertised for use with a hard ball. Cost and sate of release are still unknown, however they won’t be available for this summer.
