Post Need ideas on a good bat for me !

I am not a big hitter at all. I am a base hit all day guy. I own a 34/26 miken freak nasty that i hit great with but im looking for another bat just in case they have to send it in. Last season my bat was sent out because i hit the pitcher and it was a clean bat but i would like another bat in case it happens again. I was thinking either a new dc-41 or a new freak ink. Please give me some input!

The Freak Nasty is 1/4 ounce endload. If you really like the bat, I would stay close to that, say balanced to 1/2 ounce endload. Anything with a 1 ounce endload is going to feel very different. Also, is your league even going to allow old stamp bats this season?

The new DC41 is a supermax which is a 1 ounce endload.

Generally..

Maxload = 1/2 ounce endload
Supermax = 1 ounce endload

Also, the Freak Plus is 1/2 ounce endload.

I did swing a balanced MV1 in USSSA. After swinging a Freak 98 for a while in ASA, which runs heavy and has a slight endload, I decided to go with the Freak Plus to replace my MV1 when we switched to new stamp bats. I realy like it but I can't really give a comparison to other new stamp bats as I haven't swung the yet.

Yeah, I don't think the MV1 comes in balanced with the new stamp, so he'd have to look at the OG Mv1 and definitely should check out if his league will let him use an old stamp bat.

Yep, the new MV1 is Supermax only. It looks like the RevEx comes in balanced and maxload and that the only other non Supermax USSSA Miken is the Freak Plus.

Miken mafia is a maxload as well, I picked up last years asa model and it is just as hot as a couple of the new usssa bats I picked up. You can find them pretty cheap if you look around too.
