I guess it depends on what you want out of the bat. I've owned a DeMarini
DISTANCE (Double Wall), used Blue, Black, and Gold TPS's, a TPS Thin Wall,
A TPS Power Dome, and a Worth Signature Power Cell (Jim Fuller), and
I use the PowerCell. It's personal preference, really.
There is a definite difference in the Coefficient of Elasticity, or
whatever it's called. I don't use nice bats in cold weather, though.
Next year, I think I'll go with the Fuller SuperCell. I've got WTP
disease with the cheap bats, and the TPS Black and Fuller PC work best
for my swing. Makes that 310'-320' difference sometimes. Of course,
my bad swing messes it up most of the time anyway, so...
Use what's comfortable, but try a high performance bat. I know people
that sleep with their DISTANCES. I bought one and sold it almost two
months later -- can't stand the weighting of it.
