Pros: Ball jumps off the bat. Zero break-in period because it's alloy. Heaviest of the 2 1/4 barrel little league bats on the market and I think it's important for kids to swing the heaviest bat they can handle.
Cons: As with any 1 piece bat, there will be vibrations if you hit the ball off the end or if you get jammed. Too new to tell about durability. I wish this came in big barrel!
