There are disbelieves that are involved in choosing the wrong bat and we will discuss them below. Too heavy bats are not recommendable which give you a hard time when swinging. Such bat will slow your strike speed. One you swing fast and hit the ball at the maximum force possible it ensures it moves farthest thus a light bat is recommendable so as to ensure the pop off is at its maximum. To maximize the distance the softball is hit off one should be at a fast swipe speed which can only be possible with a light softball bat. By having short hits the pitcher gains advantage of the strikes he or she makes in every short hit you make.
Colors should not matter when picking a bat. Bats make impressions by their performance but not by their outlook. Durability and the performance of the bat should be the most significant factors to look into rather than how impressive it may be to the eye. In reality the color of the bat should not be an issue but rather the performance of the bat in the field and how suitable it will suit you. Picking a bat should be a personal affair when you make your choice without the influence of you team members. It is only by having the most suitable bat that you can have the best results of yourself in the playground and become the best performer. The softball bat model and design should be picked at personal level considerations. The experience you get with multiple different models is what will lead you to the best softball bat for you. As much as one is exploring the various varieties of softball bats there are some clubs that have policies that allow certain models to be used for their games, they are ASA, USSSA, and NSA. The Amateur Softball Association has the most stern rules and by having their stamp on your softball bat it is likely that it will be accepted in the other clubs.
The right material for your bat is vital. Characteristics of the material you choose should be tough and light. Aluminum bats are light and durable thus ease to hit which leads to added distance of the hit. The other factor is to know what length is suitable for you. The length can be determined by your height so as to have the maximum swing speed.
Any alteration of the size of your bat can lead to disqualification.
