Pros: Purchased a 28" 16 oz. bat for my seven year old son. Used last year's Easton S1, but bat was lighter weight and shorter length. He plays seven to eight year old Coach Pitch and has a powerful bat swing. Even though he is smaller in stature than average. The bat has lots of pop, a balanced feel, and can create lots of bat speed with it due to its light weight and balanced feel. Bat is hot out of wrapper and will get hotter with each smacked ball. Second year of happy son with ball-happy bat!
Cons: None, thus far. Did not have problems with last year's Easton S1 and do not expect problems this year.
