Pros: Blown away by the quality of the cut, finish, grip, and performance. Bought 28" for my 9 year old. We have two dozen wood bats now but this one. This one is special. The one we received was as light as a metal bat, sweet spot on par or better than other $50-100 maple and ash bats he owns, but the lack of vibration from the cut and grip are superior. Best bat in my opinion for younger players due to quality, price, and performance.
