Pros: My 6 year old (48lbs) playing coach pitch tournament ball got this bat and it has been fantastic. Went from hitting hard infield shots to consistently putting the ball deep into the outfield. Took a little getting used to with the difference in "swing feel" coming from a full composite Easton. Having the aluminum end helps generate power for younger players who can't swing hard/fast enough yet to make the full composite really work like it's intended to.
Cons: Not really a con...but $180 was hard to justify for a 26" bat that he will outgrow soon. Hate the paint job, but that's just personal taste. Wish it came in a solid color.
