ASA bat
Does anybody have suggestions/opinions on the best ASA non senior bat? This is for our regular league. We can't use USSSA bats. Thanks.

A lot depends on the balls being used. If 44/375 then older pre-abi bats: easton...SCN3, SCX3, miken...Recoil, NRG500,many other choices. If the 52/300 balls....Demarini...Flipper, J3A, TPS...Z-1000, Z-2000, Miken...ASA U2, Triad, etc. Then, it's all about feel...endload vs. balanced; stiff vs. soft barrel; one vs. two piece again many factors to consider. what did you swing before ? Too broad a question without specifics.

Miken makes a good one that's white but I do not know the model. I broke* my Freak DST ( good too, and also white) , so there are two good ones to think about.
*I've got 9 cracks in it. Never seen cracks that curve downward like all these do. They are cheap now too about half what I paid 2+ years ago when they came out.

The best non senior bat I ever used was the MV3.

Bob: I believe that the MV-3 is a USSSA bat. I forgot to mention that Eastons from last year & this year are good with the 52s. Also, newer bats with the 44/375 balls may have durability issues.

Right. We can't use MV3's anymore in our league because they are USSSA. Plus, they quit making them. I was answering taits' question about what I swung before. Some of the Eastons look good.

Bob, a lot of the guys in our Senior ASA leagues use one of the new Eastons or the Miken Triad. All good bats.

Bob,
The good news is you have some excellent choices. For the money the Miken ultra balanced or the new end load are hard to beat being under $200 with a warranty. Mikens Triad and Combats Wanted are strong performers as well although a little more expensive. I've tested and have them all so feel free to get with me.
