Pros: Balance - Surprisingly well balanced for a 243 in comparison to the MZP243 I was using before. Barrel is 2 1/2 which is small for a 243. Swings like a 271 with a small handle. Feel - Bat feels phenomenal upon contact. In my opinion, has more pop than the Marucci and Mizuno maples I've retired since acquiring this bat. Finish - The G Matte black textured finish feels great with or without gloves. Replaced the white Chandler logo with a gold one which really sets it off Overall - I would highly recommend this bat for anyone who is experienced in using wood bats and doesn't mind spending the extra $. It feels great, looks great, and I have zero buyer's remor
Cons: Description - It is NOT cupped at the end like the photo shows, still very well balanced Durability - I only gave it four stars because my first one lasted 5 games before cracking on a ball hit close to the end of the barrel, but immediately re-ordered because I like it THAT much Price - Its a little high considering its an entry level for Chandler, but definitely worth it if you are looking for a nice bat.
