Pros: Performance/Pop is unmatched. Great bat for any age...I have a 8 & 13 yr old that swing this bat, best alloy bat on the market. Very durable, have been taking 500 plus cuts a week since January....no dents and pop is still as if it just came out of the wrapper. Kids love the sound when the ball comes off the bat. We have had several parents and coaches inquire about where to get this bat.
