does demarini offer a 1.0 oz end-loaded slow pitch bat?
The DeMarini j3 1.20 "DXNTU" is only going to be a .5 oz end loaded swing weight. All of our DeMarini's will have a .5 oz end loaded swing weight.
when will the 2014 version of this bat be availible for purchase?

I am looking for a bat for .44 COR balls. Will this bat fit the bill?
The 2013 DeMarini J3 1.20: DXNTU Slow Pitch features the newest ASA performance certification and is designed to hit the lower compression, higher COR softballs. You can hit the .44 COR softballs very well with this bat, but you will also compromise the durability. The .44 COR softballs are harder than the softballs this bat is designed to hit. If your league is still using the .44 COR softballs, you'll see the best durability when using a bat that features the 2004 ASA performance certification mark.

I play in an ASA league and a USSSA league. I'm 5'7" 150 lbs. and hit about 280-300 on the sweet spot with my old 26 oz. DeMarini F3. I'm looking at this bat and the Worth Legit. Which would be best? Also, I've always felt like I hit double wall bats better than composite. Any idea why that is? Thanks.
The 2013 DeMarini J3 1.20: DXNTU Slow Pitch bat is a very popular USSSA model from DeMarini. The two-piece composite design is awesome! I am not sure why you have better success with the double wall. I would definitely keep swinging what is giving you the best results though.
