Help needed. Which -10 fastpitch bat?
Im looking at 3 different fastpitch bats for my 9 year old daughter. Looking at the Combat Lisa Fernandez (yellow one), Combat Morph Gear, TPS Triton, and the Catalyst. Would like to hear from some of you with experience with any of these. Or if you have a better option at about the same price. Thanks.
Combat LF yellow- HUGE 12.5 in. barrel, big sweet spot that's great for a younger type hitter
out of the four this would be my pick!
Only bad thing is the white grip gets dirty fast and they will complain, definitely need to change to black
Combat Morphed Gear TT- it's hard to beat the price on these I did grab two, it's a decent bat but has a small like 9 inch baseball barrel. Small but very reactive sweet spot. I'm not too fond of the slits they carved out of the taper, makes me a lil leery how these would hold up but will gladly use the warranty for a new 2013-14.
Triton- LS should have recalled these their were some serious durability issues with the bubble zone/taper. It does have good pop but a lot of the girls complain about how stiff it is, mishits hurt like hell. Only good thing about this one is if comes with a receipt you can get a Xeno as a warranty replacement.
Catty-depends on which yr model 2005-09 were the best years in terms of durability & pop. The new ones are decent but the governor/restriction plate inside the barrel limits the performance. They will never "break" in and get hotter like most comps.
You should be able to find a Easton stealth or synergy, Demarini CF4, Miken within $100-120 on ebay. These would be a step above the four you listed.
The trade/resale value is usually even or profit!

I really appreciate your reply. I ended up going with the 30/20 LF Combat. I got it for $75 brand new off eBay. My girl is in her last year of coach pitch, so I didn't want to go crazy buying a $300 bat for coach pitch. Especially at the rate she's growing. She swung my sons old Nike CX2 30/19 like a man just hitting soft toss, so I'm sure she'll do fine with the Combat. She's 4'9' 115 lbs. Again, I trully appreciate the feedback.
Great Daddy! your daughter must be so cute!!
