ASA vs 1.21
Personally a senior bat(1.21)will last me a long time, obviously I'm not a masher.If the new ASA standard bats are a bit better than a the 1.20's and I'm assuming durability would be better than the senior bats.Would it not make sense for a masher to swing the asa only bats? I do realize that the new asa only bats have only been out for a short time so durability is still in question.As far as price most of asa only bats are priced equal to the senior bats. Just thinking out loud!

I think your onto something there Don. I got a new U-trip bat this year for play in Canada and am curious to see how good it will get with use during the year.

New ASA bats are made for .52/300 ball, if you hit .44/375's with them I doubt they will last long. 1.20bpf bats should still be hotter than the ASA bats. ASA dropped the testing swing speed from 85mph to 80mph, changed to the .52/300 ball, but batted ball exit speed cannot exceed 98mph. 1.20bpf have an exit speed of 100+. New 2031 stamp USSSA bats are supposed to get hotter faster and blow up quicker.
