Pros:  hot out of the wrapper. So far durability is good. Two season's of swing's by the majority of the team and it still feels new.

Cons:  grip is thin and does not hold up to left handed hitters. Easy fix for just a few bucks.

Pros:  Bat has tons of pop. Softballs just scream off this thing! A little too end loaded for the ladies, but perfect for the guys on the team.

Cons:  None at this time. Still waiting for durability.

Pros:  Bat produced a lot of solid line drive hits right away. Hitters on my team who don't normally hit the ball solid were hitting good solid line drives with this bat immediately. The bat looks really nice as well. It does feel heavier than composite bats at the same ounce size.

Cons:  This bat just didn't hold up. The barrel started getting very warped after maybe 100 hits.

My league uses 52cor/300lb balls. Will the Raw Steel hold up? I want top of the line bat but I don't want it to break after 1 year.

The 2016 DeMarini Raw Steel ASA/USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: WTDXSTL tends to be a durable bat and it will work well and hold up using the .52 Cor 300 compression balls.

I am in a single wall aluminum league. Will the barrel satisfy those conditions?

Yes, the 2016 DeMarini Raw Steel ASA/USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: WTDXSTL features a single wall design and it would be legal for play in your league.

Looking for a bat to use with .40 COR balls. Could this bat be used with .40 COR balls?

This 2016 DeMarini Raw Steel ASA/USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (WTDXSTL) has the USSSA 1.20 BPF certification on it and will be able to perform well and be durable if used with .40 COR/325 Comp balls. If you need an alloy barrel bat to use with .40 COR ball, I would recommend this Steel bat very highly.

Looking for a bat to use in 55 & older league that use the Clincher ball. Any ideas?

This 2016 DeMarini Raw Steel ASA/USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (WTDXSTL) will feature a two-piece design on it. That design isn't always the best for the clincher balls since those balls are denser than regular softballs. I might recommend a one-piece bat with a little bit of an end-load for clincher balls. One to consider is the 2016 Miken IZZY PSYCHO SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SYKOMU).

I play in a seniors 55+ league that uses Jugs softie ball. What would be the best bat to use for these balls?

The best bats to use with these softballs would be any one-piece bat with an end-loaded swing weight. Due to the softness of these softballs one would want to use a bat that will be stiff on impact and an end-loaded swing weight design will offer more of an advantage than a balanced bat; not necessary though.

Does this bat come in both balanced and end-loaded models? I'm looking for a single wall balanced softball bat.

The 2016 DeMarini Raw Steel ASA/USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: WTDXSTL will feature a slightly end loaded swing weight and it is not available in a balanced design.

I had a great "white steel" bat that lasted 8+ years until the cap finally came off. Is the Raw Steel the 2016 replacement? As a senior, I need an ASA, non-composite barrel, single-wall, and preferably balanced bat. Is 28 oz. available?

The 2016 DeMarini Raw Steel ASA/USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: WTDXSTL will feature similar construction and design as the previous White Steel models. Both of these bats will have a "steel barrel" with a two-piece design. The older versions of the White Steel had a composite handle while the 2016 DeMarini Raw Steel ASA/USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: WTDXSTL features an alloy handle. This bat is featured in a 28 ounce model but they are still pending release.
