Lot of rave reviews on the Avarice, guessing it has a softer barrel but not sure. Derby Boys or Wanted have both gotten very solid reviews and maybe check out the G2 review from hb2. All are very good choices. I have a DBU on the way but won't get to swing for a couple months and I have the Pure which is a good stick, just not a great one imo so the other choices are probably going to make you happier. Arial Assault has also gotten good reviews.
Hope I have cleared things up. Like mud as usual.

I've had three Combats over the years, OG AV FL, way over rated log, ASA Derby Boys, lasted about 75 hits, never hot as billed, and still have the ASA Wanted I got for a replacement for the DB, end cap cracked second night I used it, third tier stick. I swing a lot of Demarini but recommend sticking with Miken, next couple I buy are gonna be a Melee for my senior team and a Triad for ASA.

I have the og xr17 frame & its probably the best owned & imo the best bst combat has made.

I'd go g2 plague fully loaded or dirty 120.

I didn't like the Plague as much as the Avarice 2...just felt like the ball came off better from the G2

End cap blew apart on my NR Wanted yesterday, got maybe 150 total hits out of it, junk.
