Asa Vs. Usssa bats

Question for all you asa guys. How much distance would you gain from asa to usssa? Top bats to top bats

Also, what Usssa bats would swing like a 27oz maxload recoil and the Scx3?
And what are the top bats for Usssa?

It depends on what balls you are using. We use the 52 cor 275 comp softballs so it's not a big difference between the ASA and USSSA bats. If you are using a higher compression softball the difference would be more significant.

IMO you really have to have an elite ASA bat to compare to what an average utrip bat will do, even on 52 275s.

Closest to an ASA Recoil would be the Utrip Recoil

Closest to the SCX3 would be the SCN2. SCN2 will be flexier, but it's about as close as you'll get

Top bats for Utrip? Well to be honest they're all about the same. At least, the 'high end' ones that you won't find at Wal Mart are. That's why they are generally pretty cheap compared to ASA bats

Yes, there is, but Utrip bats are not 120mph. They just have to meet 1.20BPF, and they come out to be about 100mph bats

Thanks fella's. I heard any where from 30-70ft but I didn't think it was that big. 15ft is not much at all and I would be hitting ASA balls.

depends preABI or not, 15 would be a stretch for most.

Using a .44/375 ASA ball; my One.12 on avg hits 15-20 feet shorter than my Legend. Both bats have about 500 hits on them. I did a direct comparision at the field less then a week ago. Same balls, same pitcher. So it was clear. The thing is distance isn't the only factor that seperated the two. The liners are easily 25% harder/faster. The barrel is more forgiving. Also like stated the difference grows the harder the ball. 375 it is 15/20, using a 525/600 who knows...

It's not the total distance that should be the big factor here (unless you're aiming for the fence every time)... it's the speed at which the ball gets out of the infield. That 2+ mph can make a big difference getting a ball passed an infielder.
