I have been out of softball for 2 years and would like help on bats.
In a USSSA bat league is the Miken Rev-Ex balanced a good bat for pop and distance??

Ron,
The Rev X is a great value for the $. It may not be quite as hot as one or two other bats buts it's a great choice. I have sent out hundreds of those and continue to as guys like the value.

Keeping in mind it's USSSA leagues, what would you say are the 2 best bats for our 325' fences?? At any price. It doesn't have to be hot out of the wrapper because I hit all my new composites with a 2 lb rubber mallet.

Hitting the bat with anything other than a ball makes it an illegal bat, strictly speaking. As does rolling and innumerable other things.

After reading USSSA rules and regs. on bats and softballs, I could not find anything on speeding up the break-in period any bat.
Would you please let me know were you found this before I get my any new bats.

Ron,
A good point to be heard here....breaking in a bat should be done properly to enhance performance and promote durability. I have the description of that on my website. I also offer bat break in services which I do here year around since I am fortunate to live in sunny south Florida. If you or other players need a bat and need it broken in to be game ready, get with me. You can also ship me a bat that you have on hand and need it to be broken in.

Ron,My name is Eurskine Lyons Senior Softball Coordinator for the State of Georgia.Bat Rolling and any methods used to speed up the process of breaking a bat in,is ILLEGAL.I would suggest you check with your State Director,or send an email to Slow pitch rule interpretations and rule questions: rick@usssa.com

Speeding up the process decreases the life of the equipment,and if detected,could be penalties suffered.
