Top USSSA Softball Bats for the year 2014

We feel quite confident that the following list represents the best USSSA softball bats for 2014. When more are released and reviewed, this list may become modified slightly.

The Worth 454 Mutant is one of the top bats made from USSSA softball players. With a full 2 inches more in size along the barrel (both top and bottom), the 454 Mutant provides you with the most powerful and responsive bat in the business. You will be hitting homers all over the field!

What makes the 454 Mutant even strong is the unique construction process that was used. With a two-piece design, it provides hitters with more of a bounce or flex feeling that you’d traditionally feel in one-piece systems. Despite being a two-piece system, the 454 Mutant is still incredibly durable and will be one of the longer lasting bats you’ll use. The Center load used also provides hitters with more control then they are used to which provides better and more consistent fluid swings. At around $200-$300, this bat isn’t the cheapest around, but it certainly isn’t the most expensive and will provide you with all the benefits that $400 bats provide.


The Easton 2013 S1 USSSA provides softball players with all of the speed they could possibly stand to hold while they hit. This durable two-piece bat has a Ultra thin 29/32″ handle with performance diamond grip which will allow any softball player to feel in complete control during every at bat. The sweetspot of the S1 is optimized for the optimal hitting performance in every at bat. You can’t control the umpires in a game but you can definitely control the power that you are wielding at the plate with the Easton 2013 S1 USSSA Softball Bat. You will like this bat more and more with every game that you use it in. It is the Easton Single System Composite Design that allows you to feel this incredible control. This bat will provide steady fire power to your game all season long.

If you want a little more power than what the Easton S1 offers, we feel you will get that and more by using the Worth Mayhem USSSA approved softball bat. What many players are finding so far when using this new 2013 BJ Fulk inspired model is that it has a consistent swing and that it has a great combination of power and quickness. One of the features that really stands out is the amount of durability this bat has. Despite using Worth’s very own and patented Mayhem technology (to destroy the competition), it also features an advanced construction process allowing you to use this bat for many more swings than you are used to with your older models.
