Pros: Welcome to the FASTPITCH world, Rawlings. Look out Demarini and Louisville, we have a new player coming in! For $300 tag, this bat perform as good, or even better than others. My high school daughter used Demarini and Louisville until last year. So far this bat gone thru second half of her travel select ball and full season of high school. She hit harder and ball traveled a lot further with this bat. She even told me that she likes this bat better than the rest including the Xeno and LXT.
