Pros: Good balance and feel. Excellent pop!. No durability issues thus far after a fall season and several trips to the cages and weekly hitting lessons. My 12 year old son LOVES this bat. He's hitting farther, and more often, and seldom complains of sting on mis-hits. He was an unfortunate owner of the banned Zen and we opted to replace it with this bat rather than have his Zen re-tooled. Best decision ever. My only, very minor, complaint is that it does not come in 2-5/8", only available in 2-3/4". L.S. got it right with this one. I would put this above anything DeMarini or Easton has out there right now in this class.
Cons: Only comes in 2-3/4". I wanted to get him into the smaller diameter as we grow to a lower drop weight. No big deal.
