Bat Info needed
Just got a call from a relative. He is joining a very restrictive league.

What are a couple of the best single wall aluminum bats out there???

my all time favorite was the black and blue connection... they don't make them anymore ;-(


I believe now Demarini Steel is a great single wall bat!

The Worth ESTs were very good.

I liked the blue model and a lot of guys like the black version.

There are many on ebay.

One of the leagues I play in is single wall. The demarini steel is the bat of choice. I still have two of the bats mentioned the green ritches & connexion. To my disappointment they did not hit as well as the demarini steel.

rh25, I've often wondered how the old bat would fare against the 44cor balls. About 10 years ago we hit one of the titanium bats and our composites were much better.

Bruce, I'm guessing its because those bats were engineered for harder balls. I still use the connexion when its too cold to use the steel. The demarini steels are not very durable.

Bruce...At the NSA World Series a few guys from Columbus LX were using some metal bats. It seem that the metal bats were driving the 52/300 ball further than the plastic bats.

Gary,
I still have - and use on cold days - the gold Worth ESTs. One is a 26 oz 10 inch barrel and the other is a 30 oz 13 inch barrel. They still hit well with the new balls. Next time you visit Woodlawn, I'll let you try them.
