Default Looking for a new bat

Hey everyone like the title says I'm looking for a new bat this year. And I'm torn between a lot of bats. The three major ones that catch me are the Louisville z3000 end load (if i can find a new or lightly used one) or the z4000. But I've also got a buddy that's telling me the demarini future is a sweet bat. And I've always like the mikens I've swung.

So I'm basically looking for your opinions on what route to take.

Most of the leagues I play in are usssa but I fill in on some asa so dual stamp would be nice but not deal breaking. Also I think I'd like an end loaded bat. I've got two balanced demarinis I can swing the one and the stadium.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

For dual stamps..................Any of the Combats or the Future. Screw the rest. I would not recommend the Z duallys..they are not anything spectacular. Best Dual stamp bat I have touched was the Combat VTS Survivor. They are getting kinda rare though. They have options, so just find the one that fits your swing thebest. If you MUST become a label whore and get a Z, the bay have daily deals on the Z3k.

I'll check into the combat survivor I haven't swung any of the combats so I might have to look that route. Is that combat end loaded? Or come with that option?

Do you know if the combat bat has the new bpf stamp, or the old stamp? I need a bat with the new stamp. A guy on my team has a few combats that have the old stamp and can't use them.

A seller on eBay. I know eBay always makes me nervous. Once I get it I can tell you whether it was legit or not.

But the count says he only has a couple of each weight. So I'll leave it up to you weather or not you want to order

Got the combat today haven't form to swing it yet but I like how it's weighted. I'll get a few cuts in with it tomorrow.

With that being said I got a way better deal than anticipated on this bat what would be a recommendation for a very hot usssa bat. I've got the itch to maybe get another one
