USSSA bats???
I'm new to the SSUSA circuit, but I was wondering if USSSA bats are legal to use in SSUSA tourneys?
Anyone have any input on that?
Thanks.

Yes they are. Most everything is legal. Only bat I am aware of that is not is the original Ultra.

The illegal bat list also includes...

Yellow Rip-It
Boombah (marked BPF 1.205 under the older BPF criteria)
Canadian (SPN) blue ComBat ... Very rare, only about 335 were manufactured

And, of course, any other bat not carrying the 1.20/1.21 BPF rating.

Thanks to all for your input.

surf88,
I do have some interest in a Senior Reebok Melee.
I'm just not sure whether to get the balanced or end-loaded version.
I will be shooting you an email to see what options you have to offer.
Thanks.

Peedee,
I have tested every Asa, USSSA, and senior bat out there for performance and durability. If you need any comparisons or need to get a bat from Reebok,Combat, Miken, or Worth feel free to contact me.

peedee....a few things you must consider when buying either of these bats mentioned above...the USSSA bats will usually have a 1 year warranty from the manufacturer while many of the senior bats have no warranty..of course there are some exceptions to the later but generally speaking, most senior bats have no warranty...I go with the balanced versions now for most bats...when i was younger I liked the end loaded to really snap the bat around and generate a bit more power and distance...now i go for just hitting the ball hard and let the bat do the rest without all that "extra" effort needed to swing that 1/2 ounce in the end of the bat a little faster.....I swing the Worth 454 Legit and the reebok melee balanced (soon arriving)...the legit hits it hard and far and has the 1 year warranty.....it is more expensive but the same price as most high end bats...I have swung the end loaded melee from another guy and it hits really nice too......so now you have so much more to digest and THAT is only 2 bats to decide from...throw in eastons, demarini, mikens, worths and then you REALLY have some choices..i personally got my bats from tri18 and he is a good man.....but that is my experience.....call him or email him like I did to get more info or any other guy and listen to what he has to offer...good luck
