Cant decide on a senior bat
New guy here. I have narrowed my choice down to three bats.

2013 Demarini One Senior(yellow and white)
2014 Worth Legit Senior (grey and black)
Miken Ultra 2 Maxload (white and red)

Having a lot of trouble deciding which bat I want to purchase. More of a power hitter, line drives and home runs. Looking for pros and cons. I have read a lot of reviews so far. I want a bat with a lot of pop, good feel and durable. Thanks

The Legit is the best balanced Senior bat I have ever hit.
The Ultra 2 Maxload is a fantastic bat with a 1/2 oz endload. Either of these two is a great choice.

I rate both of these equal in distance and give the edge to the Worth in durability and without question the Worth in feel.

Miken Ultra 2 Maxload would get my vote of the three for most pop. Course my Ambush has equal pop and more durable for sure. Alan would be a good place to start.

Krott, I would suggest you decide on an end load or balanced before choosing a bat. Excuse my ignorance, but I don't know if the DeMarini or the Worth are end loaded.

What I do know that the difference in hitting the ball 330' or 360' is not as important as what you do when you put the ball in play. I'd rather hit it 330' and go 4-4 than hit one 360' and go 1-4.

Thanks guys, Im leaning toward a balanced bat for now as I know I like the feel of them. Have heard nothing but good things about the worth. I have heard the 2014 senior legit is the same at the 2013 senior but they have fixed the knob problems, I see the 2014 senior is approved for ASA though, anyone know why?

There is an ASA Legit as well as a senior Legit, The senior would not be approved for ASA ... ASA requires an ASA stamp and the senior ASA would not have that

Thanks, this show the 2014 legit senior to have a ASA stamp which is what confused me.

Worth Senior Legit is hands down the best bat for long lasting smashing.It has a huge sweet spot you will not be disappointed.

Krott: I believe you are leaving out a great bat. The Reebok Melee Legend balanced bat is right in there with those which you discuss above. I have many seniors who order this bat from me and love it. I have all weights in stock and can ship same day.

I heard a couple of players speak highly of the TOC Ultra II last weekend which is available at the Senior Softball Store link. Mikens have always had a little too much vibration when I make contact with the ball for my small paws. I always seem to do better with Worth bats, but I have one Mizuno that I really like. Of course I only hit home runs in my dreams; so my bats may not even be capable of hitting one even in your capable hands. Of course my belief has always been that it is the archer, not the arrow anyway. You find me a bat that I can hit a home run with, then it should be illegal to use. ;-)

When anyone talks about a senior bat, there's always a comparison to an Ultra II Balanced or end loaded. This leads me to believe that the best bat is an Ultra II. I have one that's in it's 4th season and it's performance is spectacular.

Just check out most of the tournaments in the South & you will see that most players use Miken bats.
