USA and ASA softball bats are effectively the same, USA Softball is the governing body and they make bats that are referred to as USA or ASA approved. After testing several, discussing with a few serious players, and observing who swings what in the professional levels, here is what we think are the best ASA Slowpitch Softball bats on the market today.
The best ASA/USA slowpitch bats for 2022 is the Monsta Torch from any year since 2020.
There. We said it.
But Miken has a couple of good sticks too that you might consider if Monsta isn’t your cup of tea. As well, the value buyer, average rec player or the single wall player has a few options to check out too.
We have compiled our notes, the big-time players and some big-time vendors to come up with the best ASA Slowpitch Softball Bat. Although the market for 2019 ASA bats is thick, we whittled them down to a manageable few.
After watching more ASA slowpitch than we care to admit for 2022 and 2023, we put the Monsta Torch LC at the best ASA bat currently on the market. Although Monsta’s distribution isn’t great, (you are limited to basically eBay or Monsta.com) the bat gets enough rave reviews to be the hands-down best ASA bat for serious players. Of course, if you want a more mainstream bat with a bigger distribution you won’t go wrong with the 2023 Worth Krecher (pronounced “creature”) either.

What is the Right Bat Size
Generally, the bigger and better you are then the bigger and heavier you want your bat. However, you’ll find a lot of serious players that size down because they like the whip and control they can get. Performance is a function of bat speed and bat weight, so finding the optimal one for you will be a series of trial and error attempts.
