Is this bat legal for class "A" highschool baseball leagues?

The DeMarini Pro Maple Wood Composite BBCOR Bat (S243) Adult bat should be approved for high school play in any class. It does feature the BBCOR performance certification mark which is what NFHS regulations require. But if this league is strictly a wood bat league, some regions do not allow the use of composite wood models; even with a BBCOR stamp. To be safe, we always recommend to check with a coach or league director concerning bat legality for your league.

Would this bat be good for me, or would the DX243 be better?

I'm considering buying either the S243 or the DeMarini D271. Do these two bats have different amounts of pop or are the handles just different? Is one better than the other DeMarini wood bats?

Neither the DeMarini Pro Maple Composite Wood Bat: DX271 or DeMarini Pro Maple Wood Composite BBCOR Bat: S243 has more pop than the other. The 243 has an upgraded grip on the handle and will also feel a little more endloaded compared to the 271.
