oes anyone use the Easton Rival or Demarini Uprising aluminum alloy bats?
My league only uses non-composite bats and am looking for anyone with experience using single wall, aluminum/alloy bats.
Interested in the Easton Rival or Demarini Uprising.

I've seen the Easton Rival ALX50 and feels good to me, but have nothing on the Demarini Uprising other than some reviews stating you hear a ping when the ball is hit.

i have an Easton Rival 26oz with knob kuff, i have used it possibly for 25 - 30 hits back in Feb or Mar in colder weather (N Carolina) before our Sr league was set to start in April. Hits very good, i keep in my basement just for practice swings currently, i got on eBay new at very low price. if it will help you and your team i will be glad to sell to you. And yes the sound is much more "of a ping sound" with an all aluminum bat vs a composite.

First suggestion is to join another league unless you're a fan of going 1-4 with a cheapie hit single on a regular basis. At 65 yrs old you guys aren't Brooks Robinson, Willie Mays and Roberto Clemente. Why would a league allow basically painted lamp posts only as bats?

Otherwise get a Titanium bat as that is a legit great bat and close enough to a senior bat
