New for 2013! Last season, Easton took the baseball diamond by storm when they released the inaugural Power Brigade Series. After its resounding success in all levels of baseball, Easton is now gearing up the Power Brigade for its debut on the fastpitch softball field! While the individual bats differ slightly from baseball to softball, the concept of the Power Brigade remains the same: Allow players to personalize their power. The fact is, that players draw power from different sources. Stronger players may want a bit more weight and endload to their bat, while smaller players want a little less weight and a balanced feel. Easton solves this problem by offering Power Brigade bats in two categories: The Speed Series and The XL Series. Speed Series bats (FS1, FS2, and FS3) are characterized by lighter length to weight ratios and balanced swing weights to produce faster swing speeds and more power as a result. XL Series bats (FX1 and FX2) are going to be a little heavier and have a enloaded feel, giving stronger players extra momentum through the zone and more power behind each swing. This bat, the FS2, is a one-piece fully composite design that features a barrel made from Easton's IMX Composite that seamlessly transitions into an ultra-thin handle made from their SIC Black Carbon Composite. If you're looking for extra swing speed this season, there's only one logical choice - the bat that's built for SPEED to give YOU more POWER! Easton: Personalize Your Power! The FS2 is approved for play in ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA, and ISF. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
New for 2013! RIP-IT builds their bats around the idea that every player should LOVE their equipment. That's why all of their bats come with a 30 Day "Love It or Return It" performance guarantee. Seriously, RIP-IT will buy it back. The new Prototype -12 fastpitch softball bat definitely makes it easy to fall in love. Designed and produced in the U.S.A., the Prototype is constructed from RIP-IT's high-performance R1 Alloy with an Acoustic Barrel that is tuned for increased bat speed. Once you take your first swing with the Prototype, you'll notice two things: It is HOT out of the wrapper, and its grip is more comfortable than anything you've previously put in your hands. This incredible feel comes from RIP-IT's Ridge Grip that not only provides outstanding cushion and tack, but also completely eliminates sting from mishits. With a balanced feel and a lightweight -12 length to weight ratio, the Prototype will allow players to stay in control throughout their swing and generate a whole new level of power. Expect this to be one of the best alloy bats you've ever swung. And if it's not, send it back. RIP-IT: We Love What We Do! The Prototype is approved for ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA. It is backed by an exclusive 400 Day Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
