Does this bat has the new USSSA stamp that makes it good for play in 2013 and beyond?

The 2012 RIP-IT Reaper Light does not have the new USSSA stamp. However, it will be legal until September 1, 2013. After that date, the USSSA is required.

I'm on the fence whether or not to get this bat or a composite bat. My daughter is 11 and the size she uses is 31"/19 oz. Fairly strong hitter. Any thoughts?

The difference between purchasing an alloy bat or a composite bat is going to be up to your personal preference. Alloy bats will typically out perform composite bats early on and composite bats will typically out perform alloys bats later on in the bat's life cycle Many players prefer the traditional sound of the ping and feel of the alloy bat, but composite bats are going to be very high performing as well. .

How does this bat compare to the Louisville Slugger Catalyst?

The 2012 RIP-IT Reaper Light: REAL1 Fastpitch bat will have a slightly more end loaded feel to it making it a good choice for stronger hitters and is an alloy bat. The 2012 Louisville Slugger TPS Catalyst: FP12C2 Fastpitch bat is going to have more of a balanced swing weight and is a composite bat. Both of these bats are going to be very durable and high quality bats. More information can be found on the Louisville Slugger Catalyst at

Description for RIP-IT Reaper Light Fastpitch Softball Bat: REAL1
RIP-IT introduces the first fastpitch bat built for young power-hitters, the Reaper Light! This bat marks the first time RIP-IT has fused Beyond Composite Technology (BCT) into its single wall of Advanced Tempered Ballistic Alloy with a slight end load for power hitters! This creates an incredibly lightweight bat that will give younger power hitters an opportunity to fully realize their potential! BCT gives players faster swing speed, better control and maximum distance on EVERY SWING. "Every Swing" is emphasized because there is NO break-in period with the Reaper Light. You will get maximum performance from swing 1 to swing 10,000. The one-piece design of this bat allows for the maximum amount of energy transfer from the bat to the ball, adding power and distance to every single hit. The Reaper Light also has the best grip ever put on a fastpitch bat. Using a synthetic leather with plenty of tack, and wrapping it around memory foam, creates perfect feeling grip. It also has a raised ridge design to promote the proper mechanics and make it easy to control. When Performance Matters, Just RIP-IT! The Reaper Light is backed by a 30 Day "Love It or Return It" Performance Guarantee and an exclusive 400 day manufacturer's warranty. Free Shipping!
