Pros: This is the first time i have hit with any two-piece bat ( i am 12 4 foot 11 1/2 and 90 pounds). I had been using a 30/18 demarini vx2 (2012) but outgrew it and wanted to try the new and special Power Brigade. after much debate and considering the voodoo, vexxum, xl2, s1, convert, reflex, and s3, we decided on the s2. Although i am still getting used to hitting with a 31" bat it is very easy to get around and perfect for a 2 strike contact hitter. i feel no vibration when i hit and have hit some rockets to the gaps. Takes no time to break-in and is great for any batter in the line-up. I hope this bat lasts forever because it is AWESOME!!!!!
Cons: It no longer feels the same to hit with a one-piece bat and the barrel is shorter than the s1. the composite handle is way too long in my opinion. You need a practice bat for the batting cages because the rubber dimpled balls make your bat dent, scratch, smear, and overall shorten your bats durablility. The pros out number the cons??
