Pros: Just received this bat, so too early to tell how it performs but wanted to give everyone an idea of the true weight... since everyone seems to be having the same problem with players aged 5-7 and the new USA bat rules, I was excited to see a -12 that had the bigger barrel finally released. I bought a 28/16. The true weight is 17.5 ounces. For comparison my son has a Demarini Uprising -10 27/17 that weights in at 19 ounces that he could swing pretty well (and has awesome pop for an aluminum 2 1/4 barrel) but was a tad too heavy for him. Will 1.5 ounces make any difference? Not sure yet. I'll try and post a follow up after it's broken in.
Cons: None so far other than the typical weighs more than the actual printed weight
