Pros:  durability, price and drop weight there are not a lot of drop 8s for 7sa bats..fewer in this price range. sweet spot seems a bit larger than comparable easton drop 8s.

Cons:  look, it is a $60 bat. it wont have the fancey materials to increase speed , grip, or sweet spot. dont pay $60 and expect the same performance and feel of a quatro.
