Softball Bat Review: Easton L4.0 Raw Power Slow Pitch Softball Bat

Easton L4 slow pitch softball batThe most recent bats to come out of the Easton Hit Lab in Van Nuys, California are the Easton Raw Power slow pitch softball bats. This series comes in balanced and end load, ASA and USSSA 1.20.

The Brett Helmer Signature Easton L4.0 Raw Power Slow Pitch Softball bat has been one of the most looked forward to end loaded, single piece bat to come on the market. It is a one piece, 100% composite with a 12 inch barrel bat with a 1 ounce end load.  The Easton L4.0 has been approved for ISF and the latest ASA Softball Bat standard.

The SIC Black Carbon composite fiber material in the handle is Easton’s exclusive.  This gives the L4.0 Raw Power Softball Bat an even, virtually vibration free feel when you hit the ball. The barrel is Easton’s IMX composite.

The Easton L4.0 is very different from the L6.0.  The older IMX composite is used in the L6.0.  The latest SIC Black Carbon in used in the Easton L4.0 Raw Power Slow Pitch Softball Bat giving it an “improved feel.”

The first thing I noticed about the Easton L4.0, was the grip tape being used on the newer Easton Raw Power softball bats. This thin gauze grip tape is like athletic tape and there is no cushion.  It won’t be necessary to regrip this bat with athletic tape.

The Easton L4.0 Brett Helmer signature has the same even feel as every Easton slow pitch softball bat. The bat didn’t vibrate excessively when I missed the sweet spot and hit the ball nearer to the taper. The Black Carbon in the handle of the Easton L4.0 makes the bat even and forgiving. The bat has a good weight distribution for an end load, and doesn’t feel heavy.

This L4.0 Raw Power bat is as stiff as you can get.  The pop is huge when you hit the sweet spot because of the 12 inch barrel. The Easton L4.0 Raw Power Slow Pitch Softball Bat is equal to the other renowned Easton softball bats.

The Bret Helmer Signature Easton L4.0 Raw Power Bat is the best option for the feel of an end loaded softball bat and the solidity of a one piece bat.

This outstanding Easton L4.0 Raw Power Slow Pitch Softball Bat is offered at a very good price.

Fastpitch Softball Bats – Making the Best Choice

Slow Pitch Softball BatWhat are the best fastpitch softball bats? How long should the bat be? Is my bat too heavy or too light? These and other questions that might pop into your head are the key to finding your ideal bat is choosing the perfect size and weight that suits your game.

Let’s start with some basic technical information

Fastpitch bats are generally 26 to 32 inches in length for younger players. High school or older players normally use fast pitch bats that are 30 to 34 inches long and have a drop weight value, ranging from 8 to -13.

The term drop weight value may sound complicated but it’s really very simple. The drop weight value of a bat indicates the length to weight ratio. This concept is not difficult to understand. All you have to do is weigh your bat and then subtract the length to get the number. For example: Let’s say your fastpitch softball bat weighs 24 ounces and is 34 inches long, its drop weight will then be 24-34, which equals -10.

Fastpitch softball bats are made of aluminum as well as composite materials. As for aluminum, or alloy bats, most are made from aircraft grade aluminum and variations in the alloy formula resulting in stronger alloy, has allowed manufacturers to design bats with thinner walls, hence lighter weight. Thin walls also contribute to rebound, or the “trampoline” effect when the bat strikes the ball. This effect enhances the power, thus, the distance, given the same swing speed.

These stronger or advanced alloys are marketed under different brand names by different manufacturers like Easton, DeMarini, Miken and Rip-It to name a few.  You can be sure if a bat is made of advanced alloy, it will be called out by the manufacturer somewhere on the bat or in the specs. On the other hand, bats -11 or lighter that don’t state the type of alloy used will probably be made of an alloy too weak to support the thinner wall. Beware of these bats. They can be easily dented, even in warm weather and even unsafe. Beyond standard aircraft aluminum, there are many good grades of alloy that determine strength and durability.

Composite bats consist of glass, carbon and Kevlar fibers molded together. They are designed to a different strength and stiffness than aluminum or wood bats.  There may be some great wood fastpitch softball bats out there, but you should probably go with alloy or composite over wood because wood typically doesn’t have as much pop as alloy or composite. Both alloy and composite bats are hollow which results in the barrel “squishing” during impact with the ball, or what is known as the trampoline effect. The barrel acts as a spring, storing some of the energy, which would otherwise have gone into compressing the ball. As the bat barrel expands it returns most of its stored energy to the ball and the resulting ball speed can be significantly higher than it would have been for a wood bat, which does not have a trampoline effect.

Is my bat of choice certified

Most bats come with an ASA stamp, which shows that they are certified for league play. Moreover, ASA stamped bats are acceptable in almost all leagues. There are a number of different sanction leagues such as ASA, NSA, ISA and USSSA and your bat needs to fulfill their rules before you can  play in their league with your bat.

Believe it or not, most beginners pick a fastpitch bat because of its color. Just because a bat matches your uniform or is your favorite color, doesn’t mean it is the best for you. So, choose a fastpitch softball bat based on performance to play your best game.

The worst mistake is to choose the same bat that your teammates prefer. Just because every other player on your team is swinging that bat, it doesn’t mean it is the right one for you. You should try a few bats and then select one that is best in your hands.  Don’t jump to conclusions; take your time, try out a few choices, after all no one else is as concerned about your game as you are.

Another thing to avoid at all costs is choosing a bat that’s too heavy. You cannot swing a too heavy bat “quick and fast”.  It will slow your swing down and you may even hurt yourself.

So, remember these simple three points when choosing fastpitch bats:

1) Not too heavy – pick the right weight for your swing

2) Not everybody else’s bat – don’t be an “accidental” hitter

3) Performance over color – even if it clashes!

If you keep these little things in mind, you’ll pick a fastpitch bat that performs the best for your game and results in a higher batting average.   Call us at Cheapbats and we will help you pick out the perfect fastpitch baseball bat!


Baseball Bats Evolution – From Simple to High Tech

Baseball Bats EvolutionBaseball bats date back to the days of Rounders and of course, Town ball. Town ball is one of the oldest games from which the current “national game” of baseball evolved as early as the late 18th century. The ball was hit by a four-inch flat bat with a tapered handle that could be firmly gripped for control and leverage. By the mid-1800’s numerous changes in all aspects of the game had been made and the players were each responsible for selecting baseball bats for themselves.

One of the first baseball games played was in June of 1846 in Hoboken New Jersey included 9 innings, 9 players on each team, and 3 outs per side. However, because players made their own bats, many different styles and sizes were used. Right around this time wagon tongue wood was predominately used and players were realizing that a round bat hit a ball much more solidly. The first bat limitation was voted on until 1859 when bat size was determined to be no larger than 2 ½ inches in diameter.  From there the baseball bat length rule was adopted in 1869 (no more than 42 inches) and over the next century and a half the baseball bat has been reshaped, reconstructed, restricted and recertified (see BBCOR video).

Today there are big differences between a softball bat and a baseball bat. Should you use a softball bat to play baseball, or a baseball bat to play softball?

The most obvious difference between  youth batssoftball bats, and baseball bats is length. 

The length of the bat used for adult baseball, adult slow-pitch softball, and youth baseball/softball will vary in length:

–       Baseball – 33″

–       Softball – 34″

–       Youth – 30”

The next significant difference is the bat weight

The primary reason for the range of available weights is that the speed with which a player can swing a bat is often related to weight. However, not all bats that weigh the same swing the same.  This has to do with something called the moment-of-inertia which is the physics of a bat swing, taking into account the center-of-mass and the rotation of the bat which together strongly determine the bat swing speed.

Barrel diameters differ too

Bat profiles, or barrel diameters differ between baseball, softball and youth bats. The barrels of baseball bats are fatter than those of softball bats and can be up to 2.75”.  Adult softball bats (both slow- and fast-pitch) are narrower, with diameters of only 2-1/4″. Youth bats have the same diameter as adult slow-pitch bats.

Understanding the differences between bats, deciding on the right kind of bat and buying the right bat for yourself or your child might seem a daunting task if you are new to the game. One thing to keep in mind is at the youth level, there is no difference in bats for softball and baseball. Another thing is the right bat feels right so trust your gut.

However, at the adult level, baseball and softball bats are designed to match their respective games.  You could use a baseball bat to play softball, as long as you adjusted to the slightly shorter total length, and the heavier weight. The performance would be about the same as using an older lower performance softball bat.

Using a softball bat to play baseball would most likely result in cracking or breaking your bat. Softball bats are not designed to withstand the forces resulting from an impact with a baseball.

The same would be true of using a fast-pitch softball bat in a slow-pitch game; the performance might be really good and the ball might come off the bat faster, but you would most likely damage your fast-pitch bat.

You could use a slow-pitch bat in a fast-pitch softball game without damaging it but the larger weight (actually, larger moment-of-inertia) makes the slow-pitch bat more difficult to swing quickly and you would probably not hit as well.

You don’t want to make a bad decision and waste your money on a bat that doesn’t serve your purpose. There are so many different bats on the market so when making a buying choice consider:

–       Which ones are best for your style of play?

–       Is this one right for your league?

–       What makes THE one worth the price?

Baseball Bats Go “Space Age”

Baseball Bats go SpaceageBaseball Bats Go “Space Age” – How Composite Bats Work

When buying baseball bats, a lot of things need to be considered; the material of the bats being one of the most important. Over the years, wooden bats have fallen out of popularity because of their extensive weight and are now primarily limited to professional players. Alloy has been in use as the most common material for baseball bats for quite some time now. Different types of alloy formulations are used, many times combined together by other elements such as carbon, to form baseball bats that are more durable and lightweight than wooden bats.

In recent years the use of composite bats for baseball, especially for young players has risen dramatically because of the new composite technology. While composite bats have been in use for playing softball and slow-pitch for quite some time, their use in baseball is a recent development. The innovation in the composite bat technology has made it stronger and more durable, increasing its performance rate compared to alloy baseball bats.

How Composite Baseball Bats Work

Composite baseball bats combine together the alloy bat technology with some advanced formulation in order to create a high performing bat. The exterior of the composite bat uses the same alloy material in order to give it strength and power, but uses another wall composed of different graphite materials inside the alloy wall. This makes the composite bats tough and durable while making them lighter at the same time since the composite wall is not as heavy as alloy.

Advantages of Using Composite Bats

Composite baseball bats are usually better in performance than the usual alloy bats. Using a composite bat can be quite beneficial in many regards, especially when the composite bat is broken-in the right way. The key advantages of using a composite bat instead of an alloy baseball bat include:

Lower Swing Weight – This is the weight felt by the player when the baseball bat is swung around to play a shot. Swing weight is different from the actual weight of the baseball bat because of a slight change in the manufacturing technology that shifts the center of mass to a different position. Using a bit of smart scientific principles, the composite bats are able to reduce the swing weight of baseball bats, making it easier for players to use them without causing much exertion.

Trampoline Effect – At the time of the bat-ball collision during a baseball play, composite bats create a better trampoline effect, making the baseball jump off better. The barrel of the composite bats is usually less stiff, giving them slight flexibility. This lack of absolute stiffness in the barrel of the baseball bats allows the balls to bounce off with more energy compared to when they collide with more stiff barrels of alloy bats.

Higher Damping Rate – Composite bats have a higher damping rate compared to alloy bats, resulting in fewer vibrations along the bat handle when the ball hits off at the wrong spot. These vibrations can cause a stinging feeling in the hands of the players, causing them problems during the game. Since the bending stiffness in composite baseball bats is low, they damp the rate of vibrations caused in the bat. As a result, the players feel lesser or no stinging sensations when the ball is hit off the mark.

Here is a great selection of composite baseball bats for all levels of play and for all budgets.

Slowpitch Softball Bats Design Differences

Slowpitch BaseballWhen baseball players decide to make the move to slowpitch softball, a lot of them think that you can use the same bats you used in high school. That is not the case. While baseball bats can realistically be used to play slowpitch softball, they aren’t made to hit the larger and softer ball. To get the most out of your swing, you need to swing the proper bat for the sport you play.

What is the difference between wooden bats for softball and baseball and why is it so important to use the right bat?

Barrel and Handle – One of the biggest differences between the wooden bats for softball or baseball is the barrel and handle. With wooden baseball bats, you are usually going to see a thicker handle that helps you grip better and propel your hands through the zone quicker. Getting the barrel of the bat through the zone quicker will give you more power. The handle on wooden softball bats is a lot thinner and this is something that the aluminum bat manufacturer Anderson has brought into their models. Some baseball players have had problems adjusting to the thinner handles on these bats, but the more you swing the models, the easier it will be for you to adjust and compensate.

Barrel Size – another difference between wooden softball and baseball bats is the barrel size. The barrel size for baseball players in high school and college is usually 2 5/8 inches. This gives you more meat on the bat to make contact on a regular basis. When it comes to playing softball, the barrel size you will often see is 2 ¼ inches. This is an adjustment that a lot of players struggle to adjust to. With a smaller barrel size, you have to be more accurate with your swing which is something that requires a bit on an adjustment in your swing.

What Not to Do – one thing you absolutely must avoid doing with your softball bat is hitting baseballs pitched overhand. Softball bats are not built to withstand the impact you get from baseballs and will crack rather quickly. The same can be said of fastpitch softball bats. These bats should not be used in slowpitch, as they will break. You can use slowpitch bats in fastpitch games, but they could be too difficult to swing for some.

Now you can see what makes slowpitch baseball bats special and when they are the right bat for your sport!

Choosing the right Softball Bat for League Play

Softball swingChoosing the right softball bat

Every athlete that has ever played the game of softball understands that there is a lot more to the game than simply hitting the ball with the bat. It requires a quality swing, proper form and excellent eye/hand coordination. This is the only way to achieve consistent hitting. Making that happen requires choosing the right softball bat. How can an individual choose the ideal bat that will have a dramatic positive impact on their game?

Selecting a bat that is too long, too short, is worn out, too lightweight or heavy, can all affect how well an athlete plays the game. The ideal bat will be the one that allows the player to increase the speed of their swing and hit, which will naturally improve their results.

Purchasing a new softball bat can be a real expense. Bats can range from $30 to well over $200. Many professional-grade composite bats are available, but these bats can cost over $400. Although it can be a significant outlay of money, a serious softball player should take the time to choose the right bat and consider the investment.

Sizing a Bat

Properly selecting the ideal size and weight of a bat for a player will require consideration of their height and weight. Additionally, it is important to consider the bat barrel’s size. The process is simple.

Start with the player’s weight and height. Look over the chart of available softball bats. Bat specifically designed for fast-pitch softball are manufactured in sizes that are generally one-quarter inch bigger in diameter than a softball bat designed for slow pitch. Typically, a standard slow pitch bat is 2-1/4” in diameter.

Easton Bat Sizing Chart

Choose the proper softball bat size based on the player’s specific weight and height. Usually, lightweight shorter players require a shorter bat. Overall, bat lengths typically range between 26” and 34” long.

The Best Material

Choosing the ideal softball bat often means selecting between available materials. Both fast pitch and soft pitch bats are crafted out of aluminum, mix metals and composites. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages. Aluminum tends to dent easily during cold weather, and composite bats are substantially higher in price than other materials.

Choosing the right softball bat is an easy process by selecting the right diameter and length based on the player’s weight and height. Making the right choice can substantially improve the batting results of any player.

Types of Baseball Bats for Adult League Play – The Basics

Different kinds of baseball batsAs more men and women become interested in joining adult league baseball teams, they often find themselves in need of purchasing the best baseball bat for their swing. However, because of all the available choices, exactly which types of baseball bats serve the player best? There are a myriad of choices and the answer can be confusing unless you know more about what is available.

So, let’s start with the basics of narrowing the choices for adult baseball bats.

Single Piece vs. Two-Piece Baseball Bats

Baseball bat manufacturers craft bats in a single piece and in two pieces that are bonded together. Bats that are made of a single piece have the same material in the overall design. The significant advantage to this type of design is that it provides a stiffer, stronger bat that only produces minimal flexibility. This is the ideal solution for any batter that does best with a quality stiff bat for hitting.

Alternatively, baseball bats that are manufactured as two individual pieces are held together in a bonding process. The barrel is separate from the handle. However, when bonded, they create a strategic point of contact that has the natural ability to produce a trampoline effect when the ball is hit. It also produces significantly less vibration because it is more flexible than a one-piece bat.

Composite vs. Alloy or Hybrids

Baseball bats that are composite are often two piece and manufactured using a mixture of fiberglass, graphite, carbon fiber, and at times Kevlar. Alternatively, bats manufactured from alloys are typically a one-piece design that uses either just aluminum or aluminum and other alloys to create a stronger unit. These types of alloy bats are thinner and extremely durable along with being highly responsive – a tradeoff for less vibration control.

However, it is important to understand that some adult leagues are banning bats that are manufactured using a composite barrel. This is due to the carbon fiber weave that produces a hotter response than many leagues allow. It is important to check the rules of the league before making the purchase of a bat with a composite barrel.

Using a hybrid composite baseball bat offers the best of both worlds between aluminum alloys and a composite barrel. It is typically a two-piece design that offers durability and flexibility.

There are players that still prefer wood baseball bats specifically designed for adults. They’re usually crafted out of composite wood, bamboo, maple or ash.

Tip: Before making the choice of which bat to purchase it is important to understand the bat’s BESR (Ball Exit Speed Ratio). This criteria indicates the exit speed of the ball combined with the pitch and the swing and is a factor in whether or not a baseball bat is legal for use.

Combat Sports Bought By Bauer

It has just been announced that Combat has been purchased by Bauer.

Combat, a manufacturer of high end composite baseball bats and softball bats, after initial success with the Combat B1 youth bat and the Combat B2 youth baseball bat, suffered major financial losses as a result of the sudden rule change by Little League that effectively banned the use of several of Combat baseball bats.

At the time of the Little League composite bat rule change, Combat youth baseball bats were the most popular and best selling baseball bats for youth leagues. Combat made the decision to accept banned bats back from customers, a move that cost the company a fortune, but one that was looked upon in the baseball community as ‘doing the right thing’.

The purchase by such a dominant company in the hockey gear and lacrosse equipment world should give Combat the much needed funds and organization to once again compete with giants like Louisville Slugger, Easton and DeMarini.

2014 Louisville Slugger Z2000 Softball Bats – Slow Pitch Softball

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Z2000 Softball Bat has received durability improvements to address a small batch of softball bats that may have had production issues. Louisville Slugger will be releasing two new slowpitch softball bats in the second quarter of 2013, but the 2014 Z2000 has been the most anticipated model so far.

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Z2000 is essentially unchanged for 2014, with the exception of improvements in production to be able to produce more bats and address a small concern with a limited number of 2013 Z2000 softball bats regarding durability that did not meet Louisville Slugger’s rigid quality standards.

There are four different 2014 Z2000 softball bat versions: ASA Balanced, ASA End Loaded, USSSA Balanced, and USSSA End Loaded. Each bat uses the impressive LS-2X composite carbon fiber material, and the iST two piece connection.

2014 ASA Z2000 – The ASA version of this softball bat has an added ring in the barrel to meet the new ASA Softball ball exit speed standard. This ring is on the ASA Z2000 only, without it the Z2000 would be too hot. The ring prevents the barrel from flexing too much, which would allow for added trampoline effect, essentially this is a “rev limiter” that prevents excessive home runs. The ASA version is also approved for USSSA play, but if you play more USSSA, get the USSSA specific version below.
