Which Bat Is Hotter For Power Hitter

Hello SBFAMILY, Maybe you can answer this for us? Which bat do you think is hotter for a powerhitter, the 09 Anderson Techzilla- 33/23, 09 Stealth -33/23, Or the DeMarini CF3-33/24 ? My DD is 5'-7'' tall, weighs about 185 lbs. and turned 13 in Dec. She has been playing travel ball for 4 yrs. and has been hitting the RocketTechs, 05, 07, & 08 really well. We are just wondering if a change is needed. We like what we are hearing about the CF3. Any advice would be appreciated. All other opinions would be welcomed also.

It is my opinion that the RT '05 is the best bat of the ones you mention. With her size, I would try a 32 inch or 33 inch RT. If she is successful with an end loaded bat, the TZ will seem too light.

Thanks Amy, she has been hitting all of the RocketTechs that I mentioned. She's hitting the 08 32/23 now. Is there anywhere that you can still buy the 05 RocketTechs? Thanks.

Ebay! But be prepared to pay through the nose, I saw one go for $335 over a week ago, and it was used. Some people are nuts!

05 RT was the best. The new ones are not as hot. Of the new bats we have tested the Demaini CF3 won. That size should be just right for her, if she has a good first move..

I might would try a 33" RT with her size she could swing it with no problem. My daughter swings a 05 RT and she won't even try another bat.

We only worry about the weight. Height inches ./. 7 = ( ) + 15 = oz is a rough idea of the weight you should swing, if you have a good swing. The issue with RT's they are heavier than what the bat weight posted.. So if you think you have a 24oz RT, it weighs more than 24 oz. Weigh one and find out.

Thanks, We still have all of the above bats except the 05 RocketTech, it was a 31/22. She likes the 08 RocketTech, and hits it really well, we are just looking for something new for this summer. SBFAMILY, does the CF3 compare to the pop of the 08 RocketTech, more, same, or less? Maybe we should have kept the 05 RocketTech but it was only 31 inches long. Thanks for the info.
