not sure,but if you can use a composite handle for your bat,look into the demarini white steel,also there was one just before that one from demarini.some of the andersons are pretty good,check and see if the nanotech is single wall.most all the aluminum 405's,bats(all mfg'ers) were pretty good.

The Demarini Ultimate Weapon is an excellent bat and inexpensive

I don't get it.
After world records for participation
by SSUSA at Phoenix this year
and every major senior softball association approving senior bats
and minimum of good 44 x 375 balls
why would seniors be interested
in a single wall bat?

Is nobody trying to suggest
that seniors should get ready to buy
single wall bats because some right wing purists and self interested others
want to try to return
our game to the "holiness" and purity
of kinder, gentler, softer softball
where they just happen
to eliminate competition on the way?
They could call it Fatherland sports
or SSoF
Senior Softball of the Fatherland
and it's regulatory force or police
could be the double SS-SS or
senior softball for softer softballs.

Hey, now.
This is America and anyone,
communists, nazis, cannibals
or make the world safe
for softballers
have a right to exist and form
their own group
to promote their own interests.
Really, they do.

yes Dennis they are pretty good,also.there is a bat between that one and the white steel,can't remember the name..wait just remembered,the vexxum,it was a half and half also(composite handle,al barrel).also the white steel will fold in cold weather,unless you will using the 52-275/300 ball.

were the demarini 375's single or double wall,anyone know...

einstein........SSUSA is not the only game in town.....there are some leagues that allow seniors, but not their senior bats. Some leagues only allow single wall bats.

Hey Almighty One, self proclaimed voice of senior softball, some leagues have bat restrictions. The man asked a simple question, if you don't have a worthwhile contribution, please butt out.
375 is a doublewall, alot of guys love the white steel(composite handle and heavy end load) Ultimate Weapon, Anderson Pyrotech are good inexpensive choices. Used to swing a TPS Gold with 47/525 balls and loved that bat.

Einstein, Salio2k is right. We are all not so fortunate to play leagues with senior bats. All the local Pa and De leagues are single wall.

The DeMarini White (Gray, Maroon)is the best I've found. I also have one of the old TPS bats but not sure if it's double wall.

At least our senior leagues here in OKC allow USSSA bats! The senior league in Houston allows all senior bats. When I last played masters league in Virginia (1999), we could only swing single walls then. That was before composites came out. There are apparently a lot of senior leagues that do not allow senior bats.

All right, guys.
Who would I be if it wasn't for free speech and egalitarian concerns
of all kinds.
It's just that I can smell this guy
coming from miles away
(anyone really can)
and he's fundamentally
disingenuous.
He said he's out to get me
and get at me many times
and has evidenced even more.

As for single wall bats.
Demarini 375 and the all
black single wall Demarini were good ones for me when hitting good balls.

I always thought the Demarini Ultimate Weapon made from the CU31 alloy was the best single wall-I continued to use it and kick butt with it well after the double walls came out.(I couldn't afford a double wall). It also lasted pretty well. They made a CU31 double wall for a little bit and then it disappeared, but one of our guys had it for several years.

Seems like someone is a bit paranoid! If you want someone not to attack you, it may be a good idea not to jump into their threads and start the attack.

How about the Ritch's Superior Green Monster? I'm sure there are a few still around. I have a 32oz, new in wrapper. I know their durability wasn't very good with 50 cor balls, don't know how they would do with 44's.

The Demarini 375 is a doublewall bat. Some pure singlewall leagues are banning the Nanotek. A nice alternative is the Anderson KSP. Performance depends a lot on what balls are used.

White Steel MSRP 189.95 can be had for 149.95 at Direct Sports or Kellys Ultimate. Closeout Bats have a no warranty for 129.95. Personally I would save my money and go with the Ultimate Weapon.

Robert (I am Frank), the NT is a SW; it says so on the barrel. Also, ASA agrees; as, their stamp is on it. However, the NT performs close to most composites, plus, the NT sleeve makes it look like a PST, EST, RT, etc. It also retails for 299.99. Thus, the ban.

Bruce: I have a 28oz green monster; and, it hits Dudley THs 44/375 well.

mad dog: I forgot to add, the KSP from Anderson takes the place of the Pyrotech line. It retails for 199.00; and, is a singlewall. Performs a shade under the Nanotek.
