Miken Psyco vs Easton Salvo.
I am looking for some feedback for comparison to purchase a bat. I am looking at the Psycho balanced or Salvo. I'm a line drive hitter so I am not looking to clear fences. 5'11 180lbs so I'm not a little guy but not a monster either. The reason for these 2 choices boil down to price / warranty. Play in Cali / Az.
Thanks

Go to http://www.softballfans.com/ then go to bat reviews. They also have them for $149.

Psycho is a top USSSA bat and the Salvo is a middle of the road ASA bat,so unless you play ASA I would take the Psycho. Just remember that either bat will only be good for next season in USSSA.(bat rules change Jan.1,2013). I have swung both and found the Psycho to be far superior to the Salvo. IMO

I do not play USSSA..I play ASA and SSUSA only. That clarifies due to my not being clear. I can't find any info on the legality for play in either one. Hope this help clear up my confusion. I'm new to Senior Softball and srill learning all the ins and outs.

I recently bought a Psycho Supermax and today was the first time that I hit it. Although I only hit it off my tee, it seems like a very good bat.
I bought it mainly for a bp bat but I may have to reassess that after hitting live pitching.
I believe I paid $169 on SF. I guess I should have waited and saved another $20.

I have used both the Psycho and the Salvo......I would still take the Salvo over the Psycho.......just my thoughts.

#6 My Easton Bats last well over 1000 swings. I had a Psycho
cracked in less than 300 swings and didn't even get the distance or the pop the easton bats got. The easton bats
hit great in the cold. Just my input.

I recived the TPS Catalyst 105E Utrip as a replacement for my old yellow one...In my opinion this is the hottest U trip bat that I ever swong right out of the wrapper. Little me hit 3 out on 300 fences and hit few real nice shots...granted that it was cold around 55 or so...so the ball was flying out...but trully it is nice one. I have the 27 EL.

Olden, Although our Reebok Vector-0 is a bit more expensive, it is an awesome bat. Seniors in Phoenix used it and overwhelmingly loved it. I have well over 1,200 hits on mine and it has nearly as much pop as our Melee does. Excellent in cold weather, approved by ASA, USSSA, NSA and ISA. Full one year warranty.
