Combat Softball bats range from the beginner to the high end expensive bat. If you know the size, weight and make of the bat you are looking for, you will find the latest bats. If you see the same bat twice, it is to offer a little comparative shopping options. In each of the "stores" listed below, you will find a description of each bat. Not surprisingly, the more expensive bats are of higher quality in terms of providing distance and power to each swing. Generally, these bats, which normally run between $200 - $300+, are purchased by the more experience player who has made a commitment to playing the game at the travel team, high school and college level (and usually in combination).
If you are just starting out, a less expensive bat will do while you are still learning the swing mechanics. After you decide that this is something you want to do seriously, then invest in the more expensive bat. Also note that you will find leftover and/or "blem" bats. These are usually just as good as the current year's edition, may have gone through a color change, and are much cheaper. That is another consideration.
The first store contains both bats from Amazon and several online sports equipment stores. If, after you page through all of the pages, you don't find your model, use the search at the top of the section. It will scan all of Amazon's inventory to see if it has the bat for sale. You will find both the latest Combat softball bats and some leftovers.
The second store contains a set of retailers focus primarily on sports equipment and will have the latest Combat bats that are available. Several retailers are included so you can comparative shop. Generally, they will have the current year's bats with some leftovers. You may want to look carefully at the “leftovers”, because bat manufacturers will make major changes every three to five years with cosmetic changes in the other years. The leftovers are generally sold at a steep discount, depending on the time of year. It might be wise to do a little research to understand the difference between the current year’s bat and the previous year(s).
Shopzilla and eBay generally have leftover models, but, depending on the time of year, may also have the latest and greatest versions. Shopzilla is included to do comparative shopping across a wider range of outlets. The Shopzilla section will have both a section for a sampling of the bats available. Beneath that will be a link to Shopzilla that will return a link of all the suppliers Shopzilla has come across selling Combat bats.
If you like using eBay to find your equipment, scroll down to the eBay section to see what Combat softball bats are currently up for auction. There is also a search function to give you a complete list of all of the Combat fastpitch softball bats up for auction. Note that if you use the search function, you will have to use your "back" button on your browser to return to Fastpitch-Softball-Coaching.com as the search function does not open in a new window.
