Pros: My son is 11 (5ft/80lbs) and just back from his first practice warming up the bat. First, it looks awesome. Let's face it, kids love cool looking things and this thing smokes in the looks department. Many times kids also get stuck in wanting something simply by the name. Everyone in our league seems to swear by Easton as they also sponsor area teams. Let me tell you, this bat performed better than any other bat my son has used. The smile on his face watching balls get smacked to the outfield was priceless. He hit balls further and harder than ever! The 2 3/4 inch barrel (40% longer) and new alloys have made a world of difference. This is definitely a bat for a boy to be proud of. I also took pride in having my son use a Louisville Slugger just as I had used about 40 years ago.
Cons: None as of yet. Durability is always a big question but the 30 day return policy and 1 year warranty helps address that.
