Finding discount softball bats can be like finding trees when you walk outside. It's easy.
Of course, there are the traditional ways in how to find a discount softball bat. If you play on a team or in a league, the most obvious approach is to ask around and see if anyone is selling anything you like. You'd be surprised how many positive responses you will get, especially in these tough economic times. The reason for getting a strong response also has a lot to do with the fact the serious softball players usually carry multiple bats. If they're looking for some extra cash to pay some bills, they'll be willing to part with one.
Another option is to use sites such as eBay and Craigslist. In case you don't already know, you bid for items on eBay. It's an auction site. Highest bidder takes the prize. Craigslist, on the other hand, is a free advertising site for the public. First, go to your city. Then, go to ‘sporting goods.' At this point, you can either scroll down to look for the item you want, or you can type the words ‘softball bats' into the search box. If you choose the latter option, all recent ads with either of those words will appear. At that point, you can send an e-mail to the seller and see if you can make a fair deal. You can find some great deals on Craigslist, especially with softball bats.
Feel more comfortable going through a business? No problem. There are several options, but all of them are online. One thing you should be aware of right away is that softball bats in stores are usually overpriced and not top notch models. If using the online approach, check out sites like: softballbats.com, kellysultimatesports.com, buysoftballbats.com, justbats.com, cheapbats.com, sportsdiamond.com and anacondasports.com. These are some of my favorites, but the list goes on.
If you're going to search for discount softball bats, I also recommend you utilize a valuable Internet tool. There are several sites that rate bats for pop, distance, feel, durability, look, etc. These reviews come from professionals and/or amateurs. They can provide a plethora of information prior to you making your purchase. Some sites to consider are batreviews.com, softballfans.com, and justbats.com.
Whether you're a slap hitter or a monster, the correct weapon is out there waiting for you. And best of all, you can find it on the cheap. Happy hunting!
