Pros:  The bat has excellent pop. I have been hitting the ball with more power and as far as some of the best hitters in the league. It must be the bat because I haven't developed bigger muscles.

Cons:  Only bought one and my team players are all using it.

Pros:  Solid construction, ball flies off the barrel. I am no home run hitter, I just put the ball in play and this bad helps make that happen. I am hitting great line drives and can really place the ball well to all fields with substantial power. I prefer a little bit of a heavier bat, it helps keep me from trying to more than I can, so this is perfect for me.

Cons:  None

Pros:  none

Cons:  Bat was not very good, hit like a fungo bat, needed more bamboo or maple or something on the sweet spot. Seemed to not be able to get a good hit off it. Maybe it was a so called lemon that creeps in to some of the ones that are made. Thanks for trying.

Would this be a good choice for a 16" Clincher ball tournament?

This Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SST500 Black/Red) could be used with the 16" Clincher balls if you wanted to do so (especially if you are being required to use a wood bat).However,, for the clincher balls, you want to use the heaviest bat possible with a barrel heavy feel to it. If you wanted my top suggestion for a bat we carry for use with the Clincher balls, I would recommend the following bat in the 30 oz size: (2017 DeMarini Ultimate Weapon Single Wall Slow Pitch Softball Bat: WTDXUWE).

Is this bat approved for 2014 ASA regulations?

In many leagues, the Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Softball Bat: SST500 Red Slow Pitch bat would be grandfathered in with the 2004 ASA stamp but that would be a question to double check with your league official before purchasing.

Description for Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SST500 Black/Red
The Brett Brothers entered the bat business with the goal of ensuring that coaches at all levels of softball have access to superior quality composite wood bats that are cost effective. Consistency and durability were the primary factors when establishing their bat designs. The Brett Brothers have been involved in ball their entire lives, through Bobby and John's Minor League careers to the Professional careers of Ken and George. The Brett Brothers know the game. Even today it's an important part of their lives, with each brother being involved in their own way. George, who is still a part of the Kansas City Royals Organization and a hometown hero here in Kansas City, was a career .305 hitter with 3 Batting Titles, a 1985 World Series Ring and an induction to the Hall of Fame in 1999 to round out his 21 year career in Kansas City. Not only did he prove to be a consistent hitter he showed that he had the knowledge to succeed. The Brett Brothers understood that having reliable wood was an important component. This is why they implemented their 3-piece laminating system along with their patented BOA reinforcement handle. The all new Thunder model is uniquely designed with a bamboo core and a maple barrel.
