Pros:  Huge Sweet Spot, amazing pop. Has easily become my team's favorite bat over other Easton's and Demarini's. Price is also a great value. Similar to the Reflex but the ball goes farther

Pros:  Great bat, hangs right with my Raw Steel and Nano, (very suprised and impressed) has the largest sweet spot of any metal bat I have swung. Easton has finally outdone their old ST1

Cons:  None really, other than it would be even better if it was endloaded.

Why does it say this bat is a composite design in the video?

Thank you for bringing this to our attention and I apologize for the confusion. This bat is not a composite bat; it is a full alloy bat. I will get with my product manager and we will get this fixed right away!

Does this bat have the loud pinging sound when the ball is hit?

This bat is made of aluminum, so it will have the traditional "ping" sound. If you click on the speaker icon in the upper right hand corner of the big picture of this bat, you can actually hear this bat hitting a ball. This will let you know if it is similar to the sound you have in mind or not.
