Slowpitch Softball Bat Buying Guide

Slowpitch Softball Bat Buying Guide

Size Information:

  1. All slowpitch bats have a 2-1/4" barrel size
  2. All slowpitch bats are 34 inches long
  3. Weight ranges from 26 ounces to 30 ounces
    • 26 and 27 ounces are the most popular
    • Bigger, more powerful players will choose 28 to 30 ounce bats

League Information:

  • Make sure the bat you choose meets the standards of the league you are in
  • There are 5 sanctioned leagues: ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA & ISF
  • Leagues may require a certification stamp so make sure your bat falls under the requirements

Balanced vs. End-Loaded:

  • Balanced bats are for players who prefer a lighter, more balanced feel when swinging
  • End-loaded bats are generally for bigger, more powerful players who prefer more weight towards the end of the barrel

Material Information:

  • Composite Bats: Made from woven fibers for added pop and durability. Composite bats require a break in period while rotating the barrel. They dampen vibration and bat sting.
  • Aluminum Bats: Generally lighter weight and allow for faster swing speeds. Aluminum bats have thinner barrel walls that create a trampoline effect and drive the ball greater distances.
  • Hybrid Bats: 2-piece design with a lighter composite handle that allows for a longer alloy barrel.
