Default looking for some help picking a new bat

I am looking for a new bat for my softball league. I am looking for a top bat but I am having trouble getting understanding the rules of my league. I have listed them below and would appreciate any suggestions

A. must say "Official Softball"
B. may not be any and all “Miken” bats
C. may not be titanium
D. may not be triple wall
E. may not be composite
Shell and double walls will be allowed in all leagues provided they are not composite. Bats that have composite handles only are legal. The league
Coordinator reserves the right to deem any bat that is believed to be
dangerous, illegal for use.

thanks

No Mikens? That rule is bullshit to begin with but downright stupid in a metal league.

Anyways, you are basically looking for a good doublewall aluminum bat. I am not up on what is currently available but back in the day, the Demarini Distance, Demarini Classic, Demarini Demolition, Worth EST's, Worth Wicked and a few others were good bats and I wouldn't mind swinging them today. Since then, Demarini has the F series bats, F2, F3, F4 that have composite handles and doublewall aluminum barrels that would be legal in your league. Anderson makes some good aluminum bats that a lot of people like but I am not real familiar with them. The only one I have swung was the Rocket Tech and was few swings long ago.

Of the ones I am familiar with, the old Demarinis had huge sweetspots and were my favorite.

Also, I forgot to mention the PST's and point out that some metal bats actually exceed the ASA standards and are not ASA approved. Just something to keep in mind if your league requires ASA legal bats.
