Pros: What this bat offers that's different is the slight end load you can add that makes it feel a lot different from the other end loaded bats. It feels like the zcore speed but with more weight and that adds to the pop. You wouldn't think there is that much of a difference between a drop 3 and drop 2.5 but when your generating the same bat speed the drop 2.5 will drive it farther. I got the bat because I have two boys one year apart and thought I can save on cost having them use the same bat. I haven't swapped out the balanced weight yet they both love it. It has that great thin easton handle along with that durable easton grip that my sons have grown up to love. Has a huge sweet spot.
Cons: I heard the weights and blank plug are not legal in College. You don't want to lose the pouch that comes with the tool and weights. I have no idea how those weights are going to hold up. My sons have only used it for about 20 games now and it seems good but who knows i haven't touched the weights since I got the bat. A bit of brick dust, clay and moisture in the threads and it might cement that screw in there. Despite the cons this is a 5 star overall bat.
