Going to Manassa, Va need an ASA Bat, leaning toward the black senior Rip-It Bat. Any comments or suggestions?

Hey Lefty, Have you tried the Combat Anti-virus.
If comes out pretty and then when it's broke in hits nearly as good as a FREAK.
Joe and Jerry each got one 28EL, I have one 26 balanced left. Give me a shout if you want it.

Hitman, thanks for the message, but a 26 is a little light for me, I prefer a 28oz. bat. Still looking for some more suggestions on bats. Thanks

I can get more 28 EL's if that's what you want. C
Can also give you good price.
Get my number from Joe.
I also have a Easton Flex the silver and blue in 28 oz.
These aren't made anymore and starting to get hard to get.
Just let me know if I can help.

Hey Lefty. We play ASA league and I have a couple of bats that I think are very good.

2007 Easton CNT Flex. I swing a 27 oz. It is a very durable, balanced bat with lots of pop. Big sweet spot.

2007 Mayhem M7 98. I have a 28 oz that feels slightly endloaded. Great pop!! Again a pretty big sweet spot.

Tried the black Senior Rip It. Did not like it at all.

I have not read any reviews yet but am trying a 2008 Miken Recoil this weekend.

LEFTY 8: Over the past few months, I have talked to the people @ ANACONDA SPORTS & KELLY ULIT' SPORTS.

Boths companies, have told me that Combat ANTI-VIRUS, may very well be the best ASA BAT.

I have several 'friend', young & old, that have brought the ANTI-VIRUS, & these men r quite happy w/ the ANTI-VIRUS.

P.S. I prefer to buy my bats, from North America & not China. K2 BATs r now, being made in China. (I just got my replacement M-7, made in China.)

The Anti Virus is a great bat once it is broke in. I like the 30 EL because it is the same swing weight as the Senior Combat 30 el which makes it easier to jump from bat to bat.

Anderson is ready to launch it's new ASA composite in a week or two and I hear it is very good. The Rip-it Reaper ASA model is also suppose to be very good.

Still awing my DeMarini's...
After all these years...The bats are still legit.
White Steel is nothing to yack at either.
Again all different opinion's from different players w/different skills and mentalilty of what they want their bat to do with an ASA ball.
Keep it in the Park!

had a senior black rip-it and sold it to a teammate, I felt it was to light, but had good pop for line drives, it was 28oz. went and got the Worth Mutant ASA model same weight. Either because of the two piece construction or the end load, the bat feels more along the 28 or 29 oz. range. The balls come off the bat alot like my 07 JH. I did not notice much difference between the ASA & USSSA models.

I think the softball world of bats will be set on end when this new Reaper is out.

I'm still swinging my original Freak in ASA tournaments. I did not like it until I had to use it in our Church League. Since it was the only legal ASA bat I have (the others are old - like me!), I started using it again. It has opened up pretty well and I use it in ASA events.

I do realize that beginning in 2008, this bat is no good. So if I break it, I'm not going to be too upset!
