    If you like a 1 oz end load IMO you can't beat the Miken DC41

    The demarini merica insane is a pretty good bat for the 52. There are two for sales over in the demarini bat selling section.

    Very good prices. I wonder why they haven’t sold?

    For ASA, I’m going to suggest anything endload from Miken/Worth.

    Demarini is the best for ASA/USA. Blue flipper, usa aftermath or maybe a Monsta.

    Maybe it is off season and players want to swing the 2018 lines of miken and worth bats.

    Yeah not a good time to sell, maybe to buy? although I thought prices would be a little cheaper? maybe January? although it seems like the prices for the most part don't drop as much as they did a few years ago? I think the best bat is a 25oz monsta if you like light bats, the problem is the durability is not great, cant really bp them. The new miken worth lines are in my opinion a little behind but better durability/cheaper or includes 1 year warranty. I personally like the torch and boogeyman for gamers and a est xxl and xl for a bp bats or when temps drop here in mn.

    Worth EST. Balanced, .5oz endload or 1oz endload. Pick your poison. You won't be disappointed.

    If you like endloaded bats dc41 or the worth XXL is great. The Demarini bats are very good for people who prefer balanced bats they swing very smoothly the zone.

    I only play ASA and here's a list of the most popular bats from 2017 that I saw:

    Monsta: Torch or Bombardier
    Worth/Miken: XXL or DC-41, Freak USA, Freak Platinum
    Demarini: Mercy, Juggy OVL, USA AM
    Easton: Not many Eastons seen this year, Helmer Flex was the one I saw the most of
    I didn't see any Combats
