How This Page Works

We review hundreds of bats every year. We don’t review a bat if we haven’t hit with it extensively and seen others do so too—usually both in the cage and in a game. After hitting and watching hit, we take player feedback and get a response from the manufacturer about feature questions  we have. After all that, we then compile our findings into a readable article.

Since 2014, our Fastpitch Softball Bat Reviews page compiles and links each of our fastpitch reviews. Each review comes after meticulous care in the cage and on the field of tracking player success and feedback. As well, we often spend considerable time discussing the bats with others in the industry including the manufacturer. We have compiled a best fastpitch bat article in conjunction with this list.

Fastpitch Softball Bat Reviews Sources

Outside of our actual hitting, there are a number of sources we often refer to when reviewing performance fastpitch softball bats. Of course our baseball bat reviews page comes in handy. Other sources, like closeoutbats and justbats.com fastpitch section make some good sense too. Amazon’s product list are quite helpful as are, occasionally, a user review or two on their site.

You may also find our best pitching machine article helpful.

Fastpitch Softball Bat Reviews

We’ve also found, as we point out in several articles, that the appropriate bat for any given individual is more dependent on the individual instead of the bat. In just about any performance bat category—where several bats are vying for your dollars and commitment, we’ve found many bats to be top shelf. Each bat’s twist on marketing or branding doesn’t have much to do with actual performance. However, there are enough differences in many bats to make it quite the chore to find who indeed has the best fastpitch softball bat for any given player. So, have fun reading the above.
