I certainly agree with you. The new crop of snowshoes allow you to return great shots with only half a swing. The moment you're required to use some technique in a shot, you can't because you haven'y learned it. The reason you haven't learned it is because with these super big, overpowered bats, you can't ecexute a stroke the proper way and keep it on the court.
Were I you, I'd look at nothing under 10.5 ounces.
