Default I cant decide!

I am going to buy a softball bat (asa) here shortly, but I can not decide what would be best. I would consider myself a power hitter, but have always used balanced bats. The bats I am considering 2014 Miken Super Freak, 2014 Worth Filthy and 2014 Louisville Z2000 when it comes out in May. Any other suggestions of different bat are good too. I just want to get the best bang for the buck.

Get a sp12 or sp13 easton...They perform better than the ones you listed from Miken and Worth and will be on par with the Z2000 that has already been released. With that being said, you never know how good/bad the Z2k RI will be and the older ones had durability issues, especially the bad QC's. This is just my opinion.

From what I understand, the defective Z2k were utrip bats(QC 30-50). Am I understanding this correctly? I see that they have the 2013 models are out, but the only 2014 models I can find come out in May. Same bat just a new paint job? Right now I am leaning towards the Z2k, just worried about durability issues. Just looking for a hot stick!

Balanced bang for the buck is going to be a Fulk Mayhem.

I agree balanced bang for the buck worth bj fulk is going to be hard to beat.

I'm a line drive power hitter myself and if you can find anything that swings like a worth 454 balanced (utrip) your going to be set. The 454 line and the black balanced mutant would be good. Also the miken super freaks are pretty nasty along with the triads.

I’ve heard the new eastons are suppose to be real good. Easton L6.0 asa , 2014 Easton SP13b3 easton b3.0 specifically, but they act like eastons are made of gold price wise and I don’t understand the Louisville hype.
