Question Best ASA Bat

The league I am in is rumored to be switching to ASA from USSSA for next season.
What are the top ASA bats?
I generally prefer the feel of an end-loaded bat.

That new Whitesteel is filthy for a single wall bat! It is ASA approved. And a 26 oz feels like a 28 oz.

The Combat Anti-Virus is an excellent ASA bat although without the cold weather durability of the Synergy's. There's a post about it in our Equipment Review Forum. Everybody should feel free to add info to that forum.

The ASA Rip-It Reaper is a great bat. Also good in cold weather.

anti-virus is a great bat. they come in the el and xel which will help the feel part. the og extended is also a great bat, but it's balanced.

Nothing is end loaded like the ASA Catalyst. It's a tank in cold weather, and needs a LOT of BP to break in.

ASA Helmer, just started to swing one and if you like the Synergy 2 this is the bat for you. It's almost identical in feel to me except with a lot less break in needed. Which probably means it isn't going to be as durable in the long run but it sure as hell is hotter out of the wrapper.
