Discussion: Proper senior bat weight as we age

Mr. 3rd base,
Maybe I can help out here a bit. I do have a video on you tube titled what weight bat should I swing that covers it more completely but what ALOT of Senior hitters donít consider: We cover this in depth in my Senior camp but if you canít CONTROL CONSISTENTLY the weight of the bat you are swinging then additional weight is counterproductive. You see softball is a game of ratios , numbers, milliseconds, and milliinches. (I made up that word) Lol. The object of the game is to not make an out. If we filmed your SWING PLANE and measured bat speed many, many times I have seen senior players swinging too heavy of a bat. Most senior players are not getting stronger unless they are on a very consistent and far reaching weight training program and donít control heavier bats on a level basis THROUGH THE HITTING ZONE AND AT IMPACT The same way they can with lighter bats. The more CONSISTENT the swing plane coupled with bat speed, the more hits you will achieve. Most of all, a player needs to be comfortable AND CONFIDENT in what they are swinging or they will never reach their athletic potential. We cover this at camp in the mental approach to becoming a great hitter. I hope this helps some. Best of luck to you with your choices and on the field.

Discussion: Worth/MIKEN Senior bats for 2020

Well guys.... itís been around 2-3 months since we introduced our new bats for 2020 including my signature bat the AT18. As most of you know I have been in the bat industry for over 20 years helping to design, test and evaluate Senior, USSSA, and ASA (USA Softball) bats. When I do evaluations I assign grades 1-10 on 4 categories utilizing ONLY true 44/375 senior softballs. 1 being poor and of course 10 being excellent. The 4 categories for comparison are: 1. Swing weight/feel 2. Durability 3. Performance 4. Size of sweet spot in relation to barrel size.
This is the first year that ACROSS THE LINE of our different bats, MIKEN and Worth wins with the highest comparison average on all of our bats. My AT18 bat was designed with the idea of making A bat that appeals and fits the BROADEST spectrum of Senior players considering age AND level of play that players compete at. Iím happy to report that we have achieved just that so give it a try, you wonít be disappointed. Our durability/performance ratio is unequaled with any 2020 Senior bat. Within the lineup, we have a bat thatís swing weight will fit ANY swing no matter what age or level of play you compete at. As always, I am happy to spend INDIVIDUAL time on the phone with each of you helping you select the bat that fits you the best and gives you your best opportunity for success. Feel free to call me with questions...
Happy New Year !

Discussion: AT18 bat for 2020 from Worth

Mr. Wolf
I didnít take it that way at all. I was simply adding to the discussion after some time went by to give good information out to help senior players make the best decision for themselves. One bat doesnít fit EVERY players swing because every players swing, strengths, and needs are different. My point was and is that we designed the AT18 to meet the needs of the biggest portion of players no matter their age or ability level. Itís balance points and swing weight are very easy to adapt to along with its strengths of easy break in, high performance, durability, and exceptional sweet spot. I always counsel players that call or message me....give the bat a try for more than just 15 or 20 swings and if it feels good in your hands and during your swing, you will most likely be successful with it.
Best of Luck to you,

Alan Tanner

Discussion: AT18 bat for 2020 from Worth

Hi guys!
Since there was a little discussion about bat weights I thought I would jump in a bit....The AT18 is a 1/2 ounce end load bat. When I was working on the balance points with the engineering staff we wanted to create a bat that swings EASILY for all age groups and skill levels not just for me. This is why many guys that swing balanced or end loaded bats are enjoying the AT18 as their bat of choice now. It does break in easily and gets to high performance levels much quicker than any of the previous MIKEN or WORTH models. Durability and sweet spot are still on point so this is why the AT18 has become MIKEN and WORTHS top selling senior bat. We try and keep weight tolerances to a minimum so you may see a 26 ounce bat the weighs 25.9 -26.2 but we are closer than we have been in the past on this. You can call or text with any questions at 561-718-7504.

Jay,
I just received shipping notification that I have bats on the way to me to to arrive next week. Iíve been told that we are an a allocation basis and will receive part of the order now and some the following week due to extremely high dealer/customer demand. Iím excited to get them and beginning to ship them out to players so they can see for themselves how good they really are. Put 100 swings on it and itís ....a whole new ballgame!

Discussion: AT18 bat for 2020 from Worth

Jay,
Worth went severalmyears without producing a senior bat. Last year we did our homework and created the Wicked Pro XL and it became one of our top sellers. After 6 or more months of testing and 6 or 7 prototypes, I can confidently say the Worth AT18 is among the very best of ANY SENIOR bat this year.
