What bats are legal in senior ball?
I have a combat lady virus that is 1.20 certified. Would it be legal to use in ssusa? It's also 33/26.
Thanks

With all the good bats out there, why would you want to use a Lady Virus ? Just asking >

chin55-Yes one of my teamates uses one.
#6 I agree there are a lot of bats out there, but to each his own.Whatever you feel comfortable with. The LV is one of the hottest bats that I have ever swung.There was a reason that they were banned by other associations.Bat was awesome.

I think the lady virus was banned a few years ago.

I got the lady virus in a trade. I had a extra MV1. Just got back from hitting and I used a ultra ll, ultra, ultra ll maxload and the Lady virus. They all performed well, but if you can get a hold of LV and it doesn't bother you it's 33" you should invest in one. They maybe more durable than the ultras and possibly more pop.
Good luck

Lady Virus should be allowed for use since it is stamped 1.20.
It is banned in ASA play. That said, ASA is wavering in some play on some bats for senior use especially. A few months ago in a tourney that was ASA, there were many U-trip bats being used.

#6,chikn55,the lady virus was taken back by combat itself,told the assoc that it was to hot for play.they somehow b/c of the shorter length got around the test(something to do with how they measured for the sweet spot,or center of percussion).it was only good for 4 months for legality.i have one and it is great for my outlaw league,that allows all bats but senior ones.

Yep. Combat did a nice job with that. Recalled all of the LV and for a limited time period offered a replacment of whichever Combat bat you requested.
For some reason it seemed that the
26 oz. model was the really hot one and of course the weight of choice.Durable as well.

yeah i have the 26 oz and i'll say it out performs any assoc bat and hangs with the seniors.
