Questions and Answers for Anderson Ignite FP: IFP Fastpitch
Is this a composite or aluminum bat?
The Anderson Ignite FP: IFP Fastpitch is an aluminum bat.
I bought an Ignite from Justbats.com last season and was disappointed with it. It had no pop and had a very 'tinny' sound when hitting. My daughter didn't like it and I replaced it with a bat pack of 2 Easton CV12: SCR1B also from Justbats.com that were AWESOME out of the box. Does the Ignite require a break-in? Is that why we didn't like it? It is sitting collecting dust and could be brought back to life. I was new to fastpitch and didn't know anything about break-in when we bought it.
No, the Anderson Ignite FP: IFP Fastpitch bat will not require any period of break-in.
My daughter is 9 and is currently using a 29inch- -11 bat--I was really interested in this brand of bat but not sure? Any suggestions much appreciated.

What size bat do you recommend for my 9 year old daughter? She was using a 27" 17oz last year but it seemed a little small.
For the Anderson Ignite FP: IFP Fastpitch bat and all others, our Bat Coach would suggest about a 29" bat. You can choose to go one size larger or smaller if it is more comfortable.
My daughter is on 2 10u teams. She took hitting and pitching lessons this past fall and winter. She is 87 lbs and 4' 7". She is using a 31" 20oz. Easton Synergy bat now. I want to get an Anderson Ignite FP: IFP. Would 32" 21oz. be ok?
For your daughters height and weight I do not recommend going up to a 32" Anderson Ignite FP: IFP Fastpitch yet. It would be okay to go up in weight, but keep the length at a 31".
Does this bat come in a newer model than 2011?

My daughter is on a 10u team and is a small player. Decent bat speed but not much power. I'm wondering if the Ignite would be a better choice vs. the 2013 Easton FS3. Thanks.

How does this bat compare to the 2010 compare to the Techzilla??
Anderson made upgrades in their aluminum alloy technology since 2010. The Ignite is going to be one of their top sellers
I am new to the fast pitch softball world. My daughter is 12 yrs. She is a big girl. She just started batting lessons. Her coach suggested to start looking at 32 length and no more than 22oz. I don't know the difference between bat types( single wall, composite) Are they all plastic/part??
This is a single wall alloy bat, there isn't any plastic on the bat. I would suggest a 32 inch 21 oz.
Is this bat better used for fastpitch or slowpitch?
It will be better used in fastpitch softball.
I want to know which Anderson bat is built for the best performance, I need a comparison between the ignite FP bat and the Rocket tech bat, and whitch Anderson bat is just flat out better than the Worth 454, if you can provide me with all the information I need, I will buy the better bat.
By Anderson's standards, the NanoTek is their top-of-the-line and best performing bat followed by the RockeTech, TechZilla, Ignite and KFP in that order. It's hard to say if any Anderson will flat out, out-perform the 454 from Worth. I've heard great things about the 454 so far and it is a high-performing bat. It would be very difficult to recommend many bats over the new 454s. Based on feedback though, I would put the 454 on par with the NanoTek and RockeTech in terms of performance.
