Default Louisville vs easton bat review

What's up guys. Just joined. From jersey shore area been playing for about 5 years now and love the adult competition haha. I consider myself a fairly strong hitter with great lag and power. I want to run through some items regarding bats and comparisons
I just bought my first bat this year(not knowing a whole heck of a lot other then how to hit the ball hard and around the field) I bought the black easton b3.0 asa balanced bat
I'm part of 2 leagues one is asa and other nsa
My asa easton in my asa league was/is a great bat and I consistently hit line drives no higher then 20 feet that hit the fence and I can smoke this bat wherever I want on more line drives. Home run swings I feel like I'm leaving some power behind
Now the easton bat in the nsa league I play has a little harder time hitting further but still a great line drive bat

Recently some of my teammates starting swinging a buddies slugger z2000 the beige end load 34/27 asa. They would hit then out around 290 barely and I was like wow hmm am I actually losing power. I couldn't have believed so. Next game I was in my groove probably 7 for 7 at this point. I asked to use it and didn't hesitate at the first swing and at about 3/4 pop bang the furthest ball hit today well over 300 maybe close to 330-340 feet. Needless to say I was intrigued. This was in nsa btw but bat rated for asa ( apparently all asa bats good for all leagues)... Bringing me to my point
I just bought the usssa slugger end load 34/27 (could have went 28) not the asa version. I've heard some mixed things about what I just did. 1. Ahould have I gotten the asa or will my usssa be hotter then the asa version?? My main question ? The nsa league just compression tests bats and I thought the asa weren't allowed. You can see my complete confusion now on this matter. I think this is a great deal of good info for athletic players like myself who are just below tournament players but still play a great game. Ok open for discussion.

...too long a story for bat selection. If it feels good when u swing it, use it. Im a TPS guy. Old school, oppo hitting ON base kinda guy. I just want it to feel good off the bat.

You need the appropriate stamp for the league you're playing in is the bottom line. A lot of stamp changes in the last couple years has made for a lot of confusion. Either way ASA and NSA bats are closer in performance but I still give the edge to NSA bats. Compression testing is just something you'll have to deal with, just means you'll have to sell and buy new or releagte it to a bp bat before it dies.

That’s pretty simple check the ASA & NSA approved bat lists. You see it on there your good
Play NSA Website
ASA- too lazy to find the website

Now passing compression tests is a whole other deal. Pretty much if you pass you pass if you don’t you don’t.
