Anderson Fastpitch RockeTech Bat

The Anderson RockeTech FP Fastpitch Softball Bat is designed specifically for the diamond sports enthusiast – and unlike composites that gradually rise to a short-lived maximum potential - their design and use of high-performance materials and components, will deliver superior performance and will maintain a solid feel throughout product life. Anderson has strengthened the taper of the RockeTech softball bat this year to improve durability.

Before Anderson Bat Company's PowerArch design, there were two basic schools of thought for a multi-wall interface configuration. The first was that bat walls are loosely fit with a space that is filled with a viscous medium so the walls flex consecutively … or one and then (or into) the other. The second was that bat walls would fit snugly, and have constant contact so the walls would flex simultaneously.

Each of these has its advantages and disadvantages. The outside shell/inside sleeve with a space had better overall performance, but was more susceptible to denting. The outside sleeve/inside shell with constant contact was a little more durable, but traded overall performance. Both designs had two separate walls of equal thickness. The trade-off is reasonable because the performance/durability differences were relatively small but certainly measurable.

The Anderson PowerArch combined the two schools of thought. By having a series of opposing arches where there is intermittent constant contact and alternating separation between walls, it allows the walls to flex both independently and concurrently. It allows for a differentiation in wall thicknesses that improves the shortcomings of the above design forms.

The RockeTech, by design-necessity, is considered more of an end-loaded bat. It has more end-load and a higher MOI than the TechZilla. It is also more responsive at lower speeds to compensate for the bat speed lost due to the end-load and resulting MOI.

The new Anderson RockeTech Fastpitch Bat is one you wont want to miss!

  • Review by:
  • Pros: The new 2012 Rocketech bat feels good in your hands. I have always liked the grip Anderson puts on their fastpitch softball bats. Paint and graphics look good for 2012. Overall, I would say the new Anderson Rocketech swings a lot like the Rocketechs from a few years back. Back before composite bats, when Anderson was the best bat out. I love my Anderson!

  • Review by:
  • Pros: Seems Anderson went back to the more enloaded RT to please their original target audience. The bat feels heavier then the 2010 and 2011, but really goes through the zone nicely. They have done their MOI homework on this bat?
  • Cons: Daugther always needs the knob wrap for the RTs. IF that is a con?
