    I've traditionally always swung Demarini exclusively in NSA, but now I moved and play ASA only. My favorite all time bat for NSA was the pink 2014 stadium, I picked up a 2016 future for ASA and I'm not liking it. Anything out there like the old stadium for ASA? Miken or Worth? Maybe a different Demarini?

    I'll concur with the recent Miken/Worth stuff. If you like busty end loads, there's always the poor man's Combat option as well.

    Any particular years for the DC? Those bats are tough to find. Watching a few on eBay, but i wasn't able to find the xxl in ASA yet.

    Depends on how much endload you want and how much weight you can swing, the 2016(?) Kirby had the progressive endload so a 28oz had a 3oz endload

    2017 DC41 is wayyyyy better than that Future.

    If you’re in an ASA league hitting 44s, make sure you’re the only one swinging that DC 41.

    Why is that? Does it not have good durability? I think we are 52 core balls, but I would have to double check. I have been swinging my cluggy, and it's not terrible, but doesn't have the endload that I like from the stadium or future

    Technology in the DC41 is the pinnacle of Asa bats. That dual stamp linear future is not.

    If you already bought the DC41, that Future will soon be up for sale here.

    Regardless, swing them both and see for yourself.

    Wait and see...

    agree with the Bus.. DON'T hit anything other than 52's with the newer bats... half the life if that unfortunately

    Throwback thread from about 4 years ago bagging on the new bats with non 52 balls

    Ultimate end loaded bat for our team would be a 26oz 2oz end load. Unfortunately not many of the new bats out for asa only have 26's with a 2oz end load. Would love to see that though.

    good luck. Most ASA bats don't have that much endload in that light of a weight.
