Default Best softball bat for a teen?

Sorry for posting a sorta odd question, but its a REALLY late xmas gift for a family member and I really do not know that much about baseball

I've been looking at
Softball Bats
and
Slow Pitch Bats

What are some brands//types of bat that will best fit a 16 year old males hands and swing?

I've been reading some good things about Easton MAKO bats.

Thanks in advance!

You want a baseball bat or softball bat? Your post makes no sense.

Ok... #1) why is a 16yr old boy playing softball? Baseball. .. he should be playing baseball.
Softball is grown men over 18 who failed at baseball and still think they are living out there high school and or college dreams of being a star athlete.

#2) refer to #1.

#3) repeat steps #1-#2

What association is he playing?

Do they have any local rules regarding bats?

Is he a big strong kid, a little skinny kid, used to a certain weight bat?

How important is durability?

What is he swinging now and how does he like it?
