Pros: This is the most underrated Slugger. Everyone is talking about the Omaha or the Prime but this bat is awesome! My son hits the ball further than ever before and never complains about vibration with the Catalyst.
Cons: The grip started to unravel after about three practices but we replaced with a Lizard Skin Grip and all is well.
