Noticed that the Veteran Senior GBA has a 1.21 bpf stamp on it. Is this bat approved for Senior Softball.

1.21 is approved for SPA but not for LVSS. I'm was able to use my Boombah Cannon(made by Combat), which is 1.205 bpf in the SPA(Dalton,Ga) but not in Las Vegas this year.

Not sure but I think if LVSSA did not allow the bat it would be because they are going by the old rating of 1.20 bpf. The new SSUSA senior bat standard is 1.21 We at the SCSSA have taken on the Veteran bat and the new Spirit to sell in So. Cal. If the bat was not legal we would not have made a commitment to sell it.

marv19 is right,since the test is now made with a lesser ball,they upped the bpf rating to `1.21,sounds stupid to me,we the oldest group of players getting hotter equipment.
