L6 if strictly hitting 52/300
FuDawg if hitting anything else.

COMbat wanted if you want to pay a little extra

My league will be using the new balls and I'm guessing most of the weekend turnys will also be using them.

My team had 4 combat bats last year, 3 of them the wanted, and all 4 were broke by mid season. These were personal bats too, not team ones. Definitely never getting combat again.

We had a very similar experience with our Wanted's & Derby Boy's this year. Gonna stick with Miken & DeMarini.

Thats some what normal. I have a buddy with over 1500 swings on his wanted and hes a big old boy who mashes. I guess its a weather thing.

FuDawg is my vote for you.

Of that list personally I would go for the Miken Freak or the Demarini One, although if I had my Demarini choice it would be the SF6..
