Discussion: What's legal

Naked,
Which Easton are you swinging? I have a CNT+ (SCN2) which is not far behind my senior sticks. Try softballfans.com for info on bats. Miken makes many different bats for different associations and they come with warranties. As far as manufactures Miken, Combat,Demarini, Reebok, & Worth all make senior only bats. Barring a few exceptions (Miken Ultra) if it has 1.20 or 1.21 bpf on the barrel it is legal for senior softball. If you shop around you can find senior bats for 150 and under.

I was under the impression that the max endload allowed was 1oz., but I see that Easton has a 30oz. with a 4oz. endload. If these bats are a true 4oz. EL how do they pass the test.

Get in line, the Monsta has arrived! Buy whatever feels good in your hands, proper break-in, then game use only. I swing my USSSA bats for bp, and some of them are not far behind senior status. I have broken ASA $ USSSA bats over the years, but the only senior bat that broke on me was a Worth 454 that was a bad bat, that Worth replaced.

Discussion: Ultra II bats...may they rest in piece

If you like a nice end load and can hit with a 10" barrel I would go with a White Centenarian. If you prefer a longer barrel and a balanced or slight end load feel I would choose a Black Centenarian. Black takes a little longer to break in, but for me both are durable and perform well. Personally I would choose the Reissue of the Original Gray Combat(If they are anything like the Original?) or a Reebok Meleee Legend. Proper break-in then game use only for any senior bat has worked for me.

It's the Frank(Franc) Henry 52 Cal, he's a Canadian Major Player. You can get a Black Combat Centenarian at softballfans right now for 139.99 with coupon code "cent". They feel pretty close to the 52 Cal.

Discussion: Centenarians review, 13" and 10"

I have the white (10") Centenarian and really like it. 50-75 bp swings and it was game ready. With 200+ swings on it it ranks just behind my gray Combat(gamer) and just ahead of my 250+ swing Ambush. Buddy of mine has the black (13") Centenarian and it took a little longer to break-in(150+ swings) . Both are great bats once broken in, no issues with durability yet. If you prefer balanced or slightly end loaded go wit the black, if you like more of an end load go white.

Discussion: Recommended ASA single wall bats

Miken Ultra ASA is a hot bat, but it is not a single wall. Check out the Anderson line, Nanoteks are nice but costly. Demarini has the Ultimate Weapon or the Vexxum. Easton has the Rival. Try E-bay for some of the old single walls such as TPS Ritch's Superior or a Worth Carl Rose Powercell, or my personal favorite the TPS Gold.

Hit wrong button, here is the info:



Personal Review:
WOW is the first thing that comes to mind. I hit this bat with Anthony Kelly and Chris Evans on 1.24.13 and got back to the store in a hurry to call Don Cooper of Combat Sports to tell him to get this into production asap. I have only hit 2 times in the last 3 years and had a ton of rust to knock off and this bat made me look way better that i really was at this point in time.

I can honestly say that i had fun hitting this bat. The ball just jumps off of it and carrries a long long way. Sweet spot for a 13 inch barrel is huge and way more then fair. We Swung both a balanced version and an end loaded version today and Anthony was hitting both the end loaded version and the Balanced version over 400 feet at least 6 times. Chris and i enjoyed balls in the 330 to 350 range. We will have a video up in a week or so for you to both hear and see the flight coming off this monster of a bat.

More to come with this bat

52 cal Frank Henry is not a senior bat. It is a no warranty USSSA bat that does not have the 2013 stamp on it.

Discussion: combat Centenarian

Senior bats are hotter than most bats and with hotness you sacrifice durability. Sometimes you get a bad bat and it will break prematurely. IMO with composite bats you have to start out slowly, 25 or so swings at 1/2 speed, 25 or so swings at 3/4 speed, before you start swinging at full speed. This helps to break in the fibers more evenly which limits the weak spots, which cause breaking. Bats must be rotated after every swing and not used for bp after break-in, or in temps below 60. I have an original Combat (gray) that sees game use only and is still going strong. I have boken USSSA and ASA bats, but all were in 50 degree and below weather.

Discussion: Tournment Pitcher from NY looking to join a team

BBS for ASA is 98, all other associations except Senior use the 1.20bpf which have BBS of 100+. Most seniors have been playing this game for 30+ years and we have seen many different stunts over the years. My pitcher turns 60 this year and I have watched him eat up many a young stud. The good hitters adjust and hit their pitch, not yours.Experienced old farts like us don't fall for gimmicks, we've seen them all. Hiding the ball might work in hardball where the pitch is coming at 90+, but in softball your not gonna fool anybody, who has any experience. Good luck, and I know you will enjoy senior softball .

You got a bad bat. Contact the seller and see if they will make it right. I had a Worth 454 that broke in a couple of weeks with about 200 swings on it, and they replaced it. My Centenarian has about 250 swings on it with no marks on the barrel and is killing the ball.

Discussion: ASA vs 1.21

New ASA bats are made for .52/300 ball, if you hit .44/375's with them I doubt they will last long. 1.20bpf bats should still be hotter than the ASA bats. ASA dropped the testing swing speed from 85mph to 80mph, changed to the .52/300 ball, but batted ball exit speed cannot exceed 98mph. 1.20bpf have an exit speed of 100+. New 2031 stamp USSSA bats are supposed to get hotter faster and blow up quicker.
