Pros:  Very balanced bat, flex like ash but pop like maple. Swing a 34" and has better pop than my BBCOR. Gave it 5 stars all the way around, will find out about the durability, only had it for a week but have hit with it everyday in mid 40 to 50's temp and ball still jumps with no sting.

Cons:  None

What is the spot on the black part of the bat for?

The spot you're referring to is the Pro Ink Dot Test. The ink dot is placed on the bat taper to measure the slope of the grain. The lower the degree of slope will result in higher performance and durability of the bat, and MLB requires that all Ink Dot Certified bats have a slope that is no greater than 3 degrees.

Why choose Birch over Maple or Ash? Would this swing like a Marucci VW10?

The Louisville Slugger MLB Prime Birch Wood Baseball Bat (WBVB14-71CBE Adult) will feature a very hard wood being part of the Prime series. The Marucci VW10 will also feature a very hard bone rubbed wood. The durability will be great on both.

Description for Louisville Slugger MLB Prime Birch Wood Baseball Bat: WBVB14-71CBE Adult
For over 125 years, Louisville Slugger wood bats have been in the hands of some of the game's biggest stars. Now, Louisville Slugger wants to bring players all over the country the same bats that they put in the hands of MLB all-stars. The MLB Prime Signature Series bats are turned to each player's exact specifications using the highest grade wood available. This bat is Brandon Phillips' game day bat and features Veneer Birch wood with a C271 turning model. These bats are made to be as hard as possible, with quality that can't be exceeded. That is partially due to their Amish Craftsmanship, that takes from the techniques used by Amish woodworkers including cutting from square billets and hand sawing, followed by being placed in advanced vacuum drying chambers. The bats are then subjected to Louisville Slugger's 360 Degree Compression that guarantees 360 degrees or hardness with absolutely no soft spots. This creates a harder, more durable bat and makes bone rubbing a thing of the past. If you want to get the most out of your game this season, swing what the pros swing.
