I use a Worth Mayhem U-Trip composite bat that is an excellent line drive bat. It has a 14' barrel and has been very durable, It is also approved by NSA and ISF and comes with a one year warranty.

Does it have to have the new 2013 thumbprint on it? What do you prefer balanced or endloaded? 2014 Miken Psycho $249 or Combat Derby Boys $229 if you like EL. Mizuno Blackout $149 no warranty EL. Balanced choices would be 2014 Worth BJ Fulk Mayhem(green lettering) $199 or the Miken Revex $199 comes in balanced or endload. All come with 1 year warranty, except Blackout.

I've had Freak Plus's that were as hot as a senior bat, just a wee bit smaller sweet spot. I now have a Demarini Cartel that is great, along with a Worth M7. Many of these can be bought used on several message boards for just over $100.

Umbach,
There are a few quality options out there for you right now. I am in the process of testing all the USSSA bats right now. Two of the best choices that I have tested right now are from Miken and are great values...
Rev x: available in end load or balanced versions that break in quickly and are lively after only about 50/90 swings. At under $200, a fantastic deal.
Psyco 2: A long time great performer, this new version is EVEN better than previous models. This bat is only offered as an end load right now and it is just that....end loaded! Retail is $249.
If you are interested in any of these or have more questions about any bat call me at 561-718-7504.

I play alot more U-trip than senior ball so have ried many bats. If your league doesn't require the new stamp go with the OG Freak or OG CNT +. They can be found used for about $120 to $160 don't go any higher on message board at a site I don't think we can mention. If the new stamp is required go with the Worth WSE it is a max load but swings light. Mine drops serious bombs. They go NIW for $229 right now with a warranty. Others I have swung that have great pop and distance are the balanced 2012 Easton Salvo comp 100, 2012 Easton Stealth 100 (hard to come by) but can be found used, The slight EL 2013 Miken freak plus and Balanced 2012 Louisville Z2000. good luck lots of choices. If you can to try these bats before buying one it would be great.

I also have the 2012 Stealth 100BH. Great bat and hits any ball well. Use it for my bp bat in tourneys. The guys on the team think it's a ultra bat it hits the balls so well.

UMBACH before purchasing a bat you first need to find out if the league your referencing requires all bats to have the new USSSA 2013 approved stamp on them or not.
All bats used in USSSA conference, NIT and qualifing tournaments MUST have that stamp on it. USSSA sanctioned house leagues have the option of requiring it or not requiring it. Check with the league director on that.
If that stamp is required then from what I've seen thus far (I've umpired 3 USSSA tourneys already) the TPS Z-2000 (either red or green color trim) and the Worth 454 (orange colored bat) seem to be the hottest bats.
I couldn't offer which are balanced or end loaded.
