Anderson Flex 2018 Review 1.jpg

Pros: "My 16 yr old son has been waiting for Anderson to produce a killer BBCOR bat, and this is it. When he was in little league, he swung a Techzilla which had amazing pop. This Flex BBCOR is the grown-up version of that bat. As soon as it arrived, we took 3 rounds of BP in the cage and we were instantly impressed how the ball flies off the barrel. He took it to the Pac 12 school we live near for his Sunday night hitting sessions, and he was crushing it in the cages and on the field. Slightly end-loaded, but well balanced. This bat, in my opinion, is better than the $300-$400 bats on the market."

Cons: "No downside. If I wanted to get picky, I'd say it needs a cooler color scheme & design ... but if you are hitting doubles & home runs who cares."

Pros: "I used a Techzilla last year and was excited to see Anderson come out with this bat. It's all aluminum and definitely end loaded but a VERY balanced bat. I am a contact hitter and this bat puts the ball exactly where I want it. The speed off the bat is much quicker than most of the composite bats I've used. I draw a crowd every time I use it at our indoor practice facility. Anderson has made this bat for the working man baseball player. It is simply a well-crafted baseball bat made to do a job well!"

Cons: "Because it's all aluminum, it hurts when you get jammed! Grip wrap was a little too slick for my taste so I swapped it out."
