7 of the Best Slowpitch Softball Bats in the Game (According to Our Customers)
You don’t practice all season, year in and year out (and during the off-season) just to settle for equipment that doesn’t give you a fighting edge.
Bat manufacturers don’t, either. Some are content to rest on their laurels, but not those that are dedicated to the game.
That’s why leaders like Easton, Worth, Louisville Slugger, and Miken are hard at work throughout the year, testing new materials, inventing new proprietary features, and hearing what players have to say. Each season, they’re committed to releasing new slowpitch softball bats that are better than last year’s - even if just by a little.
Well, one way to come up with a list of the “best of the best” slowpitch softball bats is to hear what your customers have to say. They vote with their dollars.
We did: and according to best-selling metrics, these are some of the best slowpitch softball bats in the game (some are even for next season!).
1.2023 Easton Comic Series WHAM Fire Flex 12.5” Mother Load 2PC USSSA Slowpitch Softball Bat
The two-top sellers in our collection - both by Eason - are available now for preorder.
One is the 2023 Easton Comic Series WHAM Fire Flex Mother Load, 34” and in either 26, 27, or 28 ounces.
This two-piece composite softball bat is engineered for hot performance right out of the wrapper; its Fire Flex barrel technology delivers insane pop from the moment you unwrap it and take your first swing.
The composite barrel offers an end-loaded swinging weight designed for power hitters looking to get serious onomatopoeia-like WHAM performance from the very first swing.
This is also a comfortable bat to take out over the plate, as it’s made with a CXN Max Connection that eliminates vibration through the handle without impacting sensitivity. No more painful mishits, all of the feedback you need to dial in on the sweet spot.
2.2023 Easton Comic Series BAM Fire Flex 13.5” Balanced 2PC USSSA Slowpitch Softball Bat
Easton’s 2023 Comic Series BAM Fire Flex is also a hot seller right now, and like the WHAM Fire Flex, offers a lot for players to love.
This is Easton’s answer to contact hitters. The WHAM Fire Flex is optimized with an end load and the BAM Fire Flex offering balanced swing weighting.
It is also a 2-piece composite bat and is made with Fire Flex Barrel Technology to offer hot out-of-the-wrapper performance as well as CXN Max Connection technology to cut back on negative feedback.
Our consensus? Get the WHAM if you’re a power hitter and the BAM if you’re a contact hitter. It’s as simple as that.
3.Suncoast RUCKUS MAX 1PC 12” USSSA Slowpitch Softball Bat
The Suncoast Ruckus MAX is a one-piece bat that offers players a lot of performance-optimized features.
This one-piece slowpitch bat is made with composite material and offers an end-load that is perfect for power hitters.
It also features second-generation RUCKUS MAX Technology and Stick-and-Spin Barrel Coating which maximize softball flight and distance. The barrel’s Opti-Dura Performance Aerospace Grade Composite improves trampoline effect and energy transfer, for better bat-ball contact and performance.
In addition, it features a Max Speed Handle to maximize bat speed through the swing and comes with a Suncoast form-backed “tackified” bat grip for ultimate control and comfort.
4.PURE Sports NDM3 13” 2PC Game Ready USSSA Slowpitch Softball Bat
The PURE Sports NDM3 Game Ready USSSA Slow Pitch Bat offers players a lot to love. It’s also engineered, assembled and painted in the USA and available in both balanced and end-loaded configurations.
It features Game Ready Performance so players can enjoy hot performance from the first swing, a Bat Traction Grip, a thinner handle and a smaller knob for greater grip, control and comfort. It even is made from up-cycled composite material from the aerospace industry.
5.2022 Louisville Slugger Genesis Everett Williams USSSA Slowpitch Softball Bat
What list of the best slowpitch softball bats would be complete without a USSSA bat from Louisville Slugger? The 2022 Lousville Slugger Genesis Everett Williams USSSA Slowpitch Softball Bat is the one.
