Pros: My 13yr old daughter is in her 1st year but is working hard and improving so I decided to reward her with a good bat to replace her cheapo. 1st batting practice and the difference is crazy. The ball flies off this bat, even for a kid with very little coaching and still needing plenty work on her mechanics. She hit some hard line drives and blasted one ball probably twice as far as anything she's hit yet. The Demarini cf6 is a real difference maker!
