Pros:  Best bat for 2012. If you are a power hitter or on a travel team for the fall or Spring 2012, please take advantage of this new technology.

Cons:  None!

Pros:  Skeptical at first b/c -11 seemed too light for big barrel, and worried barrel/sweet spot too small. After my 10U (about 4 ft tall/65 lbs) hit with it, all doubts gone. This bat is solid with lots of pop. No stories here about monster HRs from my smallist 10U player, but the line drives definitely have some nasty top spin on them. He previously used 28/18 Speed II, which was good, but the ball seems to jump off this bat more.

Pros:  Well balanced bat with a lot of pop. Bought this bat, 29/18, to replace last years 29/19 easton omen w/o 1.15 stamp. The -11 really helped eliminating bat drag with evem more pop than the omen. After trying for 1 week, we now have 5 players with this bat. Cant wait to see it after it gets broken in.

Cons:  Price, but are getting what you pay for. Most of our kids have also swung the easton S1 and majority like the catalyst better for $100 less
