bass bats???
Got a friend who is a bat junkie. Has untold dozens in his garage from 45 + years of softball. Called me today and said he bought one (bass). Supposed to be a 121 rating. Wants to know if it's any good or did he waste another $200?????? Any knowledge on this would be appreciated. He sucks most of the time at the plate so if it's bad news, I am not going to tell him the truth.

The Bass bats are allowed in USSSA play so I don't know why they wouldn't be allowed in senior play. I could be wrong but I haven't heard if they have been outlawed anywhere.

Does SSUSA have an authorized bat list here on this site?

Bass has an SSUSA approved senior softball bat - the Crippler, available in balanced (green) and endloaded (orange) versions.
