Soft Barrel Bat

Lately, I've been hearing talk of bats with "soft barrels". So how can I tell which bats are "soft barrel"? Is there any specs or way to ID these bats? Can anybody supply the makes and models of some of these bats so I can know which to purchase?

Great post...because this brings up a very new and viable topic. I answered it very briefly in a previous thread on this message board. I will soon be making a video on this subject since it becomes more relevant day by day...stand by.

I have an engineering background and tend to look for a clear definition rather than subjective one. I looked around the internet and could find nothing specific. Is the soft barrel referrinf to the specific number achieved on the bat compression test, or something else? Does having a soft barrel result in longer hits with the same bat velocity and if not, what is the favorable characteristic?
