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.

Pros:  According to my 12 yr old son, the bat has a good pop. It was his favorite bat.

Cons:  Durability is poor. 3 months after purchased, my son's coach discovered the bat was crooked. We returned to RAWLINGS and after a few weeks got a new bat. However, after 2 weeks of use, the bat was bent again and we were told we could not get another replacement. Spend a little more money to get a quality bat. Don't buy this bat.
