What are the hottest bats for 2012, 2013, 2014

Ok I am sure this has been discussed in a round about way but I am just looking for opinions as to which bats are the hottest bats.

Lets say
#1. Best pop
#2. Best Distance
#3. Best Feel

I would answer but seeing as I pretty well hit Easton B2.0 and COMbat Avarice I don't think I am qualified to answer this. I like my bats but I am sure there are hotter bats out there. So lets hear it...

Honestly, the bats that fit your swing the best.

You've got a couple of fine examples of good new stamp bats already.

Skully is a funny man today...I figured that Z2k would be a heavy favorite.

and I am just looking for opinions not a buyers guide so I hit The Avarice and B2 because I like the feel and they suit me but what does everyone else like?

After years of swinging Worth, I switched to DeMarini this year, and I'm very happy with the performance of both the Stadium CL22 and VX2U.

Picked up a couple of Mizuno Blackouts as well this offseason. I've had a 27.5 EL before, just got a 26.5 EL and a 27 BAL, hopefully they work out.

I'm pretty much right there with Felks, Blackout EL and CL22 for me. Just heavier.

Z's are solid and right up there, but I personally hit Blackout EL & CL22 better and got them way cheaper.

Not familiar with many others, haven't hit any new Eastons, Combats or Miken...

i have tried the Z's and they are great but i dont like the way they feel, the ST100H was too whippy for me, i dont like EL's so that eliminates the psychos and blackouts. I have never really given combat a fair shot since the older stuff always felt too soft for me.

i have 2 SY100's that I absolutely love, and a NIW B2 im going to open up and try out in december.

but whatever fits your swing and feels good is actually the best bat for any criteria, you will have the best results with what you feel most comfortable with, they key is to try as many as possible and stick with what works best with you.
