Pros: Comfortable handle, solid construction, confidence booster. My son has hit his longest and most powerful hits this season with this Axe bat. He was hitting pretty good with his Easton but I definitely see an improvement with him using the Axe bat and he loves it and I can see his confidence when he steps up to the plate using this bat.
Cons: Takes time for youth to get used to one-sided hitting spot and feel of axe handle. A little top of barrel heavy so it takes more strength to swing this bat even with a -10 drop compared to other -10 drop bats.
