2017 Softball Bat Compression Testing

Posted by Nick Koehler on

Compression Testing
Compression testing measures the amount of pressure it takes to compress the barrel of a bat 1/4". The less pressure it takes to compress the bat, the easier it is to achieve maximum trampoline effect when the ball makes contact with the bat. Composite barreled bats will get easier to compress the more they are used. This is why there is a "break-in" period on most composite bats. Below we have tested a number of bats for you to compare. The bats used in these tests are brand new with zero hits on them.

  • The Easton Ghost is by far, but it is not USSSA approved. Check out our 2018 Fastpitch Compression blog post for the compression numbers.
