    Did LS not produce a 2018 ASA Line?

    Because last couple years they were garbage compared to other manufacturers and they gave up.

    LS is working on ASA models. Should be available in 2019 with new inner barrel tech

    This is what I heard too. It's in the works. Only reason I sold my Stovall was because I like to keep my Utrip and ASA bats similar (swing weight, etc) and there was no LS currently available which performed like the good ASA stuff out right now.

    New inner barrel ASA model to be out in July via my sources. Some teammates of mine swung a prototype in Cali a couple months ago. Said it was very very good!
