Pros: Great bat! Hot out of the wrapper, hit two home runs the first day. Surprised the outfielders twice when the ball kept carrying over their heads. Nicely balanced weight maximizes bat speed with the power of an end-loaded bat. A team member had an older 28 oz model which was used by many of the players so when I saw this I bought the 2014 26 oz model and it is a team favorite within a game or two.
