Default What Weight Bat Do You Use?

I know different bats swing differently but if you were going to buy a new bat sight unseen, what weight would you generally prefer?

I will allow multiple choices as many of our members confuse easily.

I've swung 30oz for years, just moved down to 28oz for the extra bat speed.
