Exclamation Need help finding New Bat?!

Been playing slowpitch for 5 years now. Played fastpitch in highschool and college. Basically I have no patience but have been working on it. Last two seasons I have been swinging a 27oz ,Composite/Balanced, Demarini. Being a heavier bat, mind you I'm fast and petite, it's helped slow my bat swing so I don't just pull it down the line. I like it a lot, amazing pop all over.
BUT I play tournament ball now and haven't been able to swing with it in NSA and USSSA tourneys, old stamps:-( I have swung a 26oz balanced Louisville Z3000 and like it.
Would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions on what I should purchase. Thank you!!

If you like the Balanced 2 pc feel here are my suggestions....
any of the Z's will perform, but they break, and cust service sucks

Demarini Stadium 2.1 -gray/white barrel, takes some swings to open up.
Demarini True ONE- multi colored barrel. Pretty balanced and has all the new stamps
Combat- BHOSE Wanted, the bat has a slight endload feel, but a 26oz would probably work fine. This bat takes some swings to get broken in, but now is a top performer in my bag.
Here are some one piece options:
Miken RevEx- excellent bat that can be found cheap. Comes in bal and el versions

Combat:
Avarice G2, Plague G2, Portent

Mizuno Blackout
there are several versions of this bat, but that bal feel is worth tracking one down.
Best bang for your buck and my choice
