Big League Dreams allow yellow bat
I played at Big League Dream in Chino Hills the other night and used the Rip It yellow senior bat. They said it is now legal there and the other BLD parks. My question is where else can I use this bat. It really is the best bat I have ever had and would like to know it I can use it in tournaments for senior softball.

I know the yellow senior does not have the 1.20 stamp but rumor is there will be a new bat the will have the 1.20 very soon. Or maybe the same bat with the 1.20 which will make it approved by SSUSA.

I have not been very impressed with my Rip It Senior certianly not compared to my Miken Freak Plus. I take it the ASA label isn't good enough for SSUSA?

Of course the yellow senior is a U2 class bat and black senior is a ASA bat.

I hit the Yellow Rip-it today to really see what it has
and I put 100 swings on it
Neither my Combat which I love
nor my Ultra 2 which is still lethal
can out hit that Yellow bat.
It is simply a monster and the best bat
since the grey Ultra, getting better, all the time.
It's shell is soft and the sweetspot is large.
Feels and swings like the Combat which I love
and hits like the Ultra 2, only better.
I wasn't sure just how good a bat it was, till today.
Rip-it has made a monster bat, the best bat I've swung
in a long time.

I just got through talking with the Stoneman
about the larger issues involved with hot bats.
When they started making/using/buying
inferior balls, the fun and love of hitting one hard/far
got challenged.
Having a good bat was a hedge for not being
screwed by showing up and having to play with bad balls.

Now, I just came from an "E" tournament
where both and balls and the bats
have been restricted so much so
that there's little joy in hitting the ball.

Having hot bats like Rip-it's Yellow beast
helps remind me why hitting and playing softball
can be so much fun.

got to add what ya say joe,the elite rip-it is something else.i go to some of the prisons around with this prison ministry group and we play the convicts.we use what ever bats we want and ball also.that bat has put some balls well over 350'(to bad its cracked now).we also let the cons use our stuff as they have very little to use and u should see the looks on their faces when they can get into one with some of our stuff.looking to replace my rip-it as soon as i can.
