IMO...

The Worth's and the Synery's
I also find that the F2/F3's are solid as well as the 07 EVO.
Both are DeMarini's.
If $ is a problem then I recomend the White Steel...kinda end loaded but for the price it's a deal.

Dyin fo Play...

For the money the Easton Extended is a really nice bat. It is balanced and swings true to weight. They are being discontinued so you can probably pick one up for $199. Very durable also, my guess is that all of the big online retailers probably still have some.

You will need to include the new Rip It senior ASA bat. I can assure you it will out hit any bat on the market. Heard from friends that used it in St George and also here in Arizona.
I have the Rip It Senior Elite which has no stamps but just picked up the new ASA model. It is equal to the real Freak.

HI BATGUY. I am not aware that the Rip it has been ASA approved. If so, I would like to know where to order. Any help is appreciated.

I think the best ASA bat is the 2006 Synergy Flex CNT. Great pop and durability. The original Freak is hard to find and is commanding over $400 to $600 on ebay.

Hey guys, I messed up, sorry. The Rip It Senior ASA bat is not out yet. We have been hitting some test bats. I found out today that is going to be made for softball sales in about 2-3 weeks from now. There are going to be two models, one for ASA and for any league that will let you use it. I hope I got this right. I do not want this to be an ad, just passing along info to some of our guys and this is an easy way to do it. If you want more info call the factory guy at 480-231-3717.

Hey Al, thanks for posting my number. Next time let me know before so I can be ready for the calls.
The new senior ASA bat is in production as we speak. It should hit the ground in about 2-3 weeks. To order, the right number to call is Tim at 480-452-5710.

A couple of good bats are the Synergy 2 which is a work horse and needs break in time but is a great bat abnd cheaper than the Freak 100. Also the Easton Flex and the Extended are great too. Or the Original Crush is a good choice but hard to find in good shape as they kinda get flat after awhile especially of you are a masher !
Freak 98 is good too but needs a lot of bp like the Synergy 2.


Hope it helps..

IMO the Miken 98 is a good after 500 swings
Both worth have a break-in period the Jeff Hall is a little more end loaded, The Easton Synergy cnt is the best out of the wrapper. I hit the new combat Sr it is very good out of the wrapper. the Miken 484 is another bat that a good ASA bat but falls behind NSA If had to pick one over the other the JH worth wold be the to hit because of the endload.

Anti-Virus from Combat hands down. Trumpball is right. If you have not tried it then give it a try you will not be sorry.

We been using the new Rip It senior ASA (not the senior elite) and find it as close to the Rreak as one can get. Maybe a little better after 500 + hits. It does take a while to break in. Also it can used in very cold.
I like the balance and feel better than the other bats. The ASA bat is going to out in a week or so, black with gold letters.

thanks,
Al

On the Rip It ASA, I am not sure. We are using a 28 & a 26. I will ask 'homerun Bill' this weekend and let you know.
I can tell you the feel of the bat is different than the others. I think it softer which makes the ball come off better with a slower bat speed. At least I think so, the bottom line is the guys here really like it. There might be bats with more pop, I don't know, but the feel of the bat is fun for being an ASA bat.

Homerun Bill > thanks for the lessons, I used the tips and hit every ball over the fence in my back yard, on the softball field I still need more help.
