Swing These Six Senior Softball Bats
SSUSA, or Senior Softball USA, is a governing body that writes the rulebook for senior softball and sanction leagues and tournaments for senior softball players around the world. Like other governing bodies, SSUSA provides certifications for legal gear, such as senior softball bats.
The Senior Softball USA certifications require that bats have a BPF (bat performance factor) of 1.21 or less. Bat performance factor is a metric associated with how much “rebound” a bat can provide. Bats with a BPF of 1.21 will provide an additional 21% rebounded energy as compared to throwing a softball against a solid wall.
Of course, the easy way is simply to follow the stamp, as organizations like SSUSA, ASA, USSSA, NSA and others will provide an official certification stamp; if you have any questions, just contact us and we’ll let you know whether or not a bat is legal for a specific league.
Otherwise, make sure you give the following six senior softball bats some attention!
- 2021 Dudley Party Time 14” Senior Slowpitch Softball Bat
This one piece composite senior softball bat features a 14 inch barrel and a half ounce end load that power hitters will eat right up. It’s tough as nails and ready to get right to work over the plate.
Everyone knows there is a pervasive belief that composite bats need to be broken in before they will reach their peak performance, which you might expect from a bat like this - but it promises to deliver HOTW (Hot Out of The Wrapper) performance, meaning you can spend less time breaking in the barrel and more time sending those hot pitches back into the stratosphere.
Performance aside, this Kenny Hart signature bat is easy on the eyes with its lime green and black color scheme - sure to turn heads for its appeal as well.
- Miken Ultra 13.5” Balanced SSUSA Senior Softball Bat
The one-piece composite Miken Ultra II has a 13.5 inch, 2 ¼ inch barrel and features balanced swing weighting. The barrel features Carbon X-Shell technology for unbeatable durability and performance. It’s optimally engineered for compression and trampoline effect and geared to deliver.
It also features an exceptionally thin yet ergonomic 13/16 inch handle for superior control and features E-Flex Ultra Technology for excellent flexion and loading. Swing this bat once and you’ll never go back - as it’s been said, it’s changed the game of softball.
- 2020 Easton Triple R Senior Slowpitch Softball Bat
The Eason Triple R is a miracle of Eason’s legendary engineering. It features a 13.75 inch long, 2 ¼ inch wide barrel composite barrel and a two-piece overall design. The barrel features triple wall design for unparalleled durability but most importantly for unprecedented compression. The pop this bat produces must be experienced to be believed. It’s also end loaded, the perfect pairing with the top-notch trampoline effect of the barrel.
You’ll be happy to note that this bat’s two piece construction also makes use of Carbon Zero technology through the handle that is the perfect complement to the barrel’s high-gear performance; Carbon Zero diminishes harsh vibrations and negative feedback through the handle connection, enabling serious hits without serious sting.
- 2021 Worth Mach 1 Hitman XXL SSUSA Slowpitch Softball Bat
The 2021 Worth Mach 1 Hitman XXL features several technology advancements, including Triax Advanced Technology and S Flex. Its Triax Advanced Technology provides more barrel flex for better loading and includes exclusive material in the barrel’s design, which extends the sweet spot.
It’s S Flex technology allows for precision bending through the handle, for optimum loading and release of energy. Pair this up with this bat’s full one ounce end load and you have a design that power hitters will dig - it’s designed to crush pitches.
- 2021 Miken Ultra Fusion Jason Kendrick 14” SSUSA Slowpitch Softball Bat
The Miken Ultra Fusion Jason Kendrick Senior Softball Bat also features miraculous modern technology, culminating in a cutting edge senior bat that’s weighed down with proprietary features for impressive performance.
This two-piece slow pitch bat features Miken’s Z1649 Technology, which incorporates not only exclusive proprietary materials in the construction of the barrel, but arranges the composite fiber at alternating angles, providing extra strength and durability. It also happens to lower compression and extend the size of the sweet spot.
It also has a Z-Lock Grip, which optimizes flex and feel, cutting back on vibrations to improve comfort while enhancing loading, perfect for a bat with a half-ounce end load.
- 2020 Dudley HOTW 14” Senior Slowpitch Softball Bat
Finally, this Dudley HOTW (Hot Out of the Wrapper) single piece composite bat is a must-swing. It features a simple one piece design and is 100% composite, available in 34 inches and in weights ranging from 25 to 28 ounces, for a little variety in swing weight.
Nonetheless, it is end loaded and handles exceptionally well, and, like other Dudley bats, it is eye-catching and bright. It’s definitely a design you can appreciate if you like hot looks. Call us if you have any other questions about it.
