Best bat for mush balls
I've been reading a lot about using bats with less flex for hitting low compression balls. What is the best bat out there to compliment my ultra II and original freak?

First define low compression. For me low comp means anything under 300 comp. A lot of people consider 375 as low comp but I consider it to be mid.

In any case I think that it's better not to have a lot of handle flex especially if you have good bat speed. Bats I like performance-wise are:
Demarini 375
Anderson RTCK
Synergy Flex
Nokona Tomahawk
Worth Mayhem98 (once broken in)
Freak98 (once broken in)

Good point. I have talked w/ several Major Plus players & just the opposite. All of these players swing bats that have Flex Tech'. A ball that is High Cor (500 +) or Mid Cor (370-400), will travel farther off of a bat that has 'Flex Tech'. The Composites 'Non-Flex tech' bats r stiff & balls just do not seem to jump off of thses bats. No trampline effect.
Most ASA bats that r 98, take a long time to break in. When these bats do break in, that bat is about to break.
Good Luck...... The Stoneman
