Pros: great balanced bat you can thunder the softball
Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SST500 Black/Red With Free Bat Grip
Good pop I can deal with it
Solid construction, ball flies off the barrel
Pros: great balanced bat you can thunder the softball
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 bat...nice pop...one of the first bats picked up by our players....
Pros: Nice bat, solid construction. Allows for great hits over the infield. Favorite bat for getting a base hit.
Cons: Not as solid as maple bats. Most players do not like it, however some of the older players like its lightness.
Pros: This is a good bat for the price. About half of our players use it. It hits the ball well. This bat has good pop.
Pros: Good pop I can deal with it
Pros: Good pop...takes a while to get used to...good buy.
Pros: Nice bat, great for line our wooden bat league. Being used by 6 teams along with several other bats and seems to one of the favorites.
Pros: none yet
Cons: barrel too small.
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.
Pros: all around good bat
Pros: Perfectly balanced, great pop, good torque on your swing for a wood bat. This bat actually feels more comfortable in my hands than most aluminum bats that I use.
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.
Pros: great weight and balance i've used it in one game so far and it felt like i've been using it forever many others on the team loved it as well
Cons: no cons for me
Pros: Great feel. Great weight and pop action
Cons: Durability. Seems like we need to get a new one every other season
Pros: First time using by multiple players, so far everyone is impressed with it ( ours being a wood bat league only ). Durability is still to be determined.
Cons: NO CONS AT THIS TIME
Pros: Good sweet spot (easy to find) Lighter weight Good solid hits
Cons: Can't think of any

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).
