Default Deciding between 3 USSSA slow pitch bats

I'm going to be playing on a few USSSA teams this summer, and I want to get the best bat available. I'm 5'9 155 lbs, and my favorite bat used to be my 27oz Easton SCN9.

Even after hours of research, it's hard for me to tell which bats are the best, but I've narrowed it down to:

2013 Miken Freak Plus 27oz ($200)

Easton Stealth 100 SP12ST100 ($300 for 27oz or $150 for 28oz - is it worth getting an ounce heavier for the savings?)

Louisville Z-2000 End Load 27oz ($310 for SB13ZE on their site or $250 for SBZ214-UE, I don't understand what the difference is)

Which one should I buy?

Are these all good options?

Is there a better bat that I'm missing?

The Z2k or st100 will be best...I can get you better prices than what you have listed on all those bats so let me know what you decide.

If you're looking for a cheaper option and want something that isn't returnable then look into the blackout. Can be had as cheap as $150 dlvd.

Thanks Bombs, I'll message you later today. Do you have a store?

Mattdawg, there's no softball at all where I am in Mexico! But I return to the USA in 20 days and then I'm playing up in Toronto. So right now my only option is browsing online stores.

I wouldn't spend that much money on a bat ever.

If u liked the scn9, stick with the newer stealths. You can find scn19's for under $150. Just google search it

hb2, the cheapest scn19 I can find is $180. Easton Stealth Tri-Zone Slowpitch Bat | Best Price at SportsOnly.com

Where can I find it cheaper?

I was interested in the ST100 because after researching, that seemed like the bat receiving the most praise. Is it not better than the SCN19?

What do you think is a good deal for the ST100?

Is it worth it to go an ounce heavier for the $150 one?

Also, my friend who's looking to get a bat is a fan of Mikens. The Freak Plus looked like one of the most recommended bats. Am I wrong? What would you say are the top Miken bats, and what are they worth?

Sorry for all the questions, I don't really have much knowledge about bats, and I just want to make sure I get the best one for a reasonable price. :/

I'll search for you on the 19. People always say the newer the bat, the better. Personally I don't think so. For Mikens, the dc41 is always a good choice.
