Pros: Slightly larger barrel & -5. Used by 1/2 our team in a wood bat tournament. Our 12yr olds loved them. Played 5 games without problems. Four other bats were broken. My son thinks he may use this in middle score instead of a BBCOR bat. I hope so; I can buy 5 -7 of these compared to one BBCOR bat.
Cons: None unless you're kid's hitting is inflated due to composite bats. Only good batters can hit wood bats well.

Is this the only 30 inch wood bat with the slightly larger barrel? Also if my son is going to swing a -9 aluminum bat for games, what drop in a wood bat would you suggest he practice with?
Asked by LP
This will be one of the only ones with a larger barrel. I would suggest looking at a -5 or -6 wood bat
Would this bat be a good bet for cage work? 12 yr. old

If you are trying to get him stronger and ready for the -3 bats that come in high school, most definitely.
