- Size Guide
New Rip-It Fastpitch Bats were designed with a strong emphasis on creating the most balanced bats possible, giving players the ability to swing faster. This lighter swing weight allows for better bat speed and greater bat control. As a result, players who use the new RIP-IT fastpitch bats instantly improve their hitting by making better contact and driving the ball farther than ever before.
This Drop Twelve AIR is the first in the industry to be constructed identical to a Drop Ten, but weigh in at a Drop Twelve. The result is Drop Ten performance in a Drop Twelve bat that youth players can swing with ease.

Softball Bat Sizing
To find the correct bat length for your softball-playing daughter, have her stand straight up with her arms to the side. Place a ruler to her side with the start of the ruler (the "0" mark) on the ground. Read the measurement at the end of her wrist, just where the hand meets the forearm. As a general rule, this measurement indicates the perfect bat length for her.
Another sizing method for Baseball and Softball
Another great means for determining bat size is what we'll call the wingspan method. Have your son or daughter stand up tall with their arms straight out (arms should be parallel to the ground as if they were trying to mimic an airplane). Measure from the very center of their chest out to the tip of their fingers. That measurement will give you the ideal bat length.
It's always best to try to size using a variety of methods to come up with their ideal. For youth which are still growing, we recommend that you go with the longest length obtained through the various sizing methods. We often use the break of the wrist method (described in the softball bat sizing above) along with this method and use the longer of the two.
