In Sun Lakes, Az, we are using the senior elite bat. I would say that about 80% of the players use it. The key to it's success as told is the flex is designed for our slower bat speed. I know my swing is slow and I can feel the ball jump off the bat. It is not a U2 but all the guys like it, I think it makes the game more fun without the danger of a U2.
I heard today that it will be sold by softball sales (softball.com).
The reps name is Bill and for a good time (just kidding), his number is 480-241-3717. My name is Al.

Just a word of caution. Before you go out and buy one make sure it is legal in whatever league you play in as it is not approved by any Assoc. If you go to their website the picture they show doesn't even have the 1.20 bpf on it.
http://www.rip-it-elite.com/elitesp.htm is the web site.

Good point Fred. Please note that our current model does not have any stamps and can only be used where they are nice enought to let you. The senior model with all stamps of approval will be ready in about 30 days at softball sales.
This bat is designed to flex more at slower bat speed and will be only for senior softball (ASA, 1.20).
It is currety being tested in Arizona with great success. Not a U2, but will make the game more fun that any other ASA bat.

Glad to hear that. Now that they no longer are making PST's I have to look for something else. I will have to try one when they become available.
