First you have to be honest with yourself. What type of hitter you are should answer your question. If you are a power hitter, the endloaded bat should work better (C243). If you are more of a gap hitter I would suggest more of a balanced bat (M110, C271 or a T141).
Note that a true power hitter can use any bat to drive the ball. And a gap hitter can use a big bat well if he chokes up slightly.
