I play in (3)senior leagues in the Cleveland Ohio area.

Mayfield = ASA Rules and No Composite Bats, all bats must have ASA Stamp on them, and they do have a bat testing device on site. They also place approved sticker on your bat showing that it has been tested. This league has a wide range of players from 50 to over 70 (ten (10) teams)with guys ranging from AA to Major Plus in all age divisions. NO screen in front of pitcher, 10 man defense. Not a lot of home runs hit here. And they use a 52/300 ball.

Lake County (Painesville) = YES, this league plays with composite senior bats, only four (4)teams, & for the most part this is a AA/AAA League with a handful of Major players sprinkled in. This league has a screen in front of pitcher(AND)also allows an extra fielder.

Maple Heights = YES, league allows composite senior bats, only (4) teams, but a lot of talent in this league. Most of best players in Cleveland area play here. Majority of players play Major & Major Plus in Tournaments. This league also uses pitching screen and ten man defense.

Neither of the leagues above that allow composite senior bats will allow 44/375 tournament balls though------they are using 52's-----------

I take it then that senior bats have more 'pop'? I have a senior Rip-It is that considered a hot/hotter bat?

most guys that hit home runs all the time work hard at it,its not just the bat,grab a hold to that patty mac once around the shoulder area you'll see what i mean or big arm from oki these guy's work very hard all winter to be able to handle the bat the way they do.

Jetboy; don't think the original Senior Rip-It was ever approved for use so unless you have some new model your stick is illegal. And yes, it was considered too hot . . .

The Rip-It that had Senior on large letters on it was an ASA bat. It was legal for utrip and senior associations. It had very little pop.

Rip-it had 1st the yellow elite senior bat not approved anywhere and the black senior bat. Yellow was vg bat but couldn't really use it and balck was as Bruce said not that great.
They also made the Reaper bat which was a good bat, but not sure how the bats are now. The president didn't follow through on things said to two people about bats as far as I know...I was one of those guys.
I wouldn't buy a bat from them now.
Kelly's Ultimate Sports has reviews on bats for ASA and the others you might want to look at. They do a good job.
