DeMarini 2022 Nautalai USSSA 240 - Best USSSA Slow Pitch Bat
These Nautalais start out insanely hot right out of the wrapper, hold compression incredibly well, are durable, and perform great. The Davis Bilardello is our #1 pick. It looks great, feels super comfortable in the hands and hits bombs.
2022 Easton Resmondo Fire Flex USSSA 240 Slow Pitch Softball Bat
Easton’s Fire Flex line of bats are renowned for their flex and performance at the plate. The Resmondo features an all-new design, but same great performance. The barrel design makes for a huge sweet spot and its 12.75-inch slightly end-loaded barrel feels great in the hands of both contact and power hitters.
2022 Easton Comic WHAM Motherload USSSA 240
The 2022 Easton Comic WHAM is a great bat that has some fantastic graphics to boot. The tech in is more or less similar to that of the Resmondo, with slight differences in length and weighting, but still the same incredible performance at the plate. The grip feels amazing, tons of pop out of the wrapper, and holds compression incredibly well.
Limited Edition Miken DC-41 SuperMax USSSA 240 Slow Pitch Softball Bat
For starters, we love the gold, black, and military green colorway on this two-piece, all-composite slow pitch bat. The DC-41 has an excellent combo of flex, performance and durability. Its long 14-inch barrel and 1 oz end load makes this a handful for any player apart from an out-and-out power hitter.
Worth Mach 1 Cobra Jet 428 13.5-inch XL USA - Best ASA/USA slow pitch Bat
This two-piece all-composite slow pitch bat is easily one of the best ASA/USA slow pitch bats we’ve swung. The 13.5-inch barrel has a slightly top heavy feel to it courtesy of a 0.5oz end load. This will suit power hitters that like a little bit of heft on their bats.
2022 DeMarini Nihilist Dale Brungardt USA Slow Pitch Softball Bat
The Nihilist’s setup maximizes energy transfer on contact so that power hitters can use their strength to swing for the fences. The handle’s construction is rigid, which, in turn, causes the barrel to flex more, causing the ball to really rocket off it.
MIKEN FREAK PRIMO 14-INCH BALANCED USA SLOW PITCH SOFTBALL BAT
Tech-wise, there’s lots going on under the hood of the Miken Freak Primo. Barrel tech has been engineered to give a bigger sweet spot, a fantastic barrel and durability. Quite hot out of the wrapper as well but needs several hundred hits to be fully broken in. Contact hitters will love it.
2022 Easton Ghost Salvo USA/ASA slow pitch bat
This 13.5” barrelled slow pitch bat has a slight end load (swings more like a balanced bat owing to barrel length), and will be better suited for contact hitters. This connection piece flexes enough for some players to like, but players who prefer a stiffer bat are better off swinging something like the Krecher or the Nautalai.
