So, you gave Anderson these 2 bats, and they gave you credit towards a bat at retail? How is the credit given chosen...do you
email pics or something?

There are a bunch of used Rocketech’s on the Bay. Some even have USSSA thumbprints. As long as it doesn’t have “Anderson Performance Waves” they are probably just as good as when they left the factory.

Also one 32“ Rocketflex. The connection was the failure point on those but they were VERY good. If they were still available dd#2 would probably still be swinging one.

Its time for Steven Anderson to get back in the game. “Durable” would sell right now.

My oldest daughter used a rocket tech until 2017 and someone gave us one from 2007 and I honestly couldn’t tell the difference other than paint. Did something change in 2019?

Is your daughter strong...it is extremely end loaded and will be over sticker weight. It will take some getting used to if she hasn’t used one before, but is a good bat for a strong girl that can generate good bat speed with it.

with that said all the girls on my daughters team now swing LXTs & Ghosts mainly...no RTs.
Not sure what year maybe mid

Not sure the year maybe mid teens Anderson added an outer sleeve along the length of the barrel. Produces better trampoline effect I guess.

Back in Winter of 2018 DD matched her best exit velo of 18 Ghost with 19 RT on Hittrax. Not really an apples to apples comparison Ghost was 32” 22 and RT was 32” 23 and definitely end loaded.

And, will guarantee the RT weighed 25+ ounces as his bats were always like 3 ounces over...haha
Yep, the ones we had were always around 3 oz heavier, but they did drop some bombs with those bats. Are the new ones closer to the advertised weight or are they still the beasts they’ve always been?
