Questions and Answers for Anderson Ignite FP Fastpitch Softball Bat: IFP
I have a DeMarini CF6 drop 10, I don't want to use it in the batting cages. Do you have any suggestions for what bat I should use in the batting cages?
The 2014 DeMarini CF6 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFP) is a composite bat. If you are wanting another composite bat we have the 2014 COMBAT Portent Fastpitch Softball Bat (PORFP110). If you are looking for alloy I would recommend the Worth Prodigy Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPPCX2). The Worth is a drop 10. The Anderson Ignite FP Fastpitch Softball Bat (IFP) that you are looking at is a drop 11.
My daughter currently uses the Bustos bat by DeMarini. It is getting small for her. We are looking for a 32" bat now. How does the performance of this Anderson bat compare to the Bustos bat?
The Anderson Ignite FP Fastpitch Softball Bat (IFP) has an alloy design with a balanced swing weight like the Bustos bat. It is very light swinging, but will swing heavier than the Bustos because it has a -11 length to weight ratio. The Bustos has a -13 length to weight ratio. The Ignite will provide similar feel and similar performance. It is a great option to transition into from the Bustos.
My daughter is on a 10U team. She is currently using a DeMarini Bustos bat. Her bat is 29 inches 16 ounces and -13. Would the Ignite being one inch shorter and one ounce heavier affect her?
The feel of the Anderson Ignite FP Fastpitch Softball Bat (IFP) would be heavier overall than the DeMarini Bustos Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXBFP) because the length to weight ratio would be very different. This would require some adjustment on her part but should be something she could work on and get used to.
What is the MOI rating on the Anderson Ignite and the Anderson Flexzilla?
The Anderson Ignite FP Fastpitch Softball Bat (IFP) does not have an MOI listed on the bat. Even though we do not know the exact MOI rating, the Ignite and the Anderson Flexzilla will both have lower MOI's to ensure balanced swing weights.
How does the Anderson Ignite compare to the Anderson Flexzilla in terms of overall performance?
The Anderson Ignite FP Fastpitch Softball Bat (IFP) and the Anderson Flexzilla will both have great pop and performance. One is not drastically better than the other. Either would be a great selection!
Does this model have all of the necessary 2014 stamps for USSSA/ASA tournament play?
The Anderson Ignite FP: IFP Fastpitch is currently approved for play in ASA, USSSA, NSA and ISA.
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.
We have received very good reviews on the Anderson Ignite Fastpitch model. Anderson produces some very high performing alloy models.
My daughter is 11 years old and about to move up to the 13U league. What size do you think she needs?
The correct size for the Anderson Ignite FP: IFP Fastpitch is best determined by her height and weight. Check out our bat coach for sizing: http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/
Does it have the USSSA stamp on it?
The Anderson Ignite FP: IFP Fastpitch has the new USSSA stamp.
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".
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.
The Anderson Ignite FP: IFP Fastpitch bat will come in -11 sizing. It will feature an Ergonomic Weldless Knob. It will be Single Wall All-Metal Alloy. It also features a lower MOI, which means her swing speed will be improved.
Is this bat ISF approved?
Yes, the Anderson Ignite is approved for play in ISF as well as ASA, USSSA, NSA, and ISA.
Is the Anderson Ignite a better choice than the Anderson KFP for a power hitter?
Both the Anderson Ignite and the Anderson KFP are suited for power hitters. You really can't go wrong with either bat. The KFP is slightly end loaded.
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.
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.
