ASA bats, or American Society for Testing and Materials, are softball bats built to meet certain quality, performance, and safety standards. These bats can be differentiated from other softball bats by the ASA stamp on the handle of the bat. ASA bats have been tested and approved by the ASA, which means that they comply with ASA rules for bat construction, safety and performance.

The ASA test bats themselves are 43′′ long, 2.5′′ in diameter and weigh between 28 and 32 ounces. Each bat must pass the ASA test before it is given any approval. Because ASA bats are tested for safety, they must bear the ASA stamp on the handle.

Our testing team looks at the quality of wood, the weight of the bat, and the length of the bat †when testing slow pitch softball bats, our testers test the bats for weight, balance, swing weight, and swing weight, which measures the bat's power, speed, and control. We also look at performance, including how the bats perform in different softball pitches, including fastpitch softball and fastpitch softball. Here are the top 10 ASA slow pitch softball bats of 2022 according to our testers:
