Stay away from newer Eastons and DeMarini’s. The Worth’s and Miken’s are durable as long as you’re not worried about compression testing.
What is your current game bat? Half ounce description isn’t enough. The longer barrel bats swing differently than the shorter barrel bats. Some bats say .5oz endload but actually have no endload at all, or worse, they are mid-load instead.
Tell us what you swing and we can suggest a bat that is similar to it, than can withstand a beating.
