Pros: It is great for power hitters or even hard line drive hitters. For all the guys worried about the end loaded feel, there really isn't too much of a difference from the balanced version. Pop is great, grip is comfortable, and really it's just an all around great bat.
Cons: None whatsoever except it stings after hitting it off the end but that's normal for any bat
Pros: Has good pop. My son likes the handle and feel. He Has not played a game yet with it.
Cons: I bought the Trio for my son in Feb. and it is late March and it cracked. You would think the quality would be better for the price? The season has not even started. I hope they replace it. This is the first Rawlings bat he has used. He use to like Louisville Slugger bats.

Description for 2014 Rawlings TRIO End-Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBTRI3
New for 2014! Introducing the TRIO, a three-piece hybrid, blending a Comp Lite Endcap, 5150 Alloy, and a composite handle for ultra low MOI and increased barrel flex. Rawlings is out to prove that they truly are on the cutting edge of BBCOR design technology. The original 5150 Alloy BBCOR was one of the first BBCOR bats to hit the market, yet it achieved uncommon staying power and popularity for years after its release. That's because players barely noticed a difference in performance, swing weight, and durability from their BESR bat. Now that Rawlings has had a chance to perfect the design even further, this year's TRIO is sure to be even more popular! The unique feel offered by Rawlings' BBCOR bats is made possible through Precision Optimized Performance (pOp) Barrel Technology that isolates extra weight to a smaller region of the bat, translating into extra swing speed. Made from the ultra-responsive 5150 Alloy, this three-piece design also features Rawlings' proprietary Bi/fusion process that joins the Comp-Lite end cap to the 5150 Alloy frame to give it more durability and more pop in one single, solitary unit. With a 7/8 Inch tapered handle and premium synthetic grip, the TRIO End-Load will feel incredible in your hands. Rawlings: The New Standard of Speed! The TRIO End-Load is BBCOR Certified and legal for high school and collegiate play. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
