* Click on each bat in the bat pack to get individual features for that bat
Pros: The bats looks nice.
Cons: This bat is very lite and has a very poor durability. The bat completely cracked on first at bat on a fastball hit on the middle of the barrel. I wanted the maple version of this bat but was not available so I decided to try the ash version. It was a mistake, bats look nice but that's all the positive I can say about them.
Pros: Looks good.
Cons: Have yet to make it through a round of BP with one of these. Second one broke on first round of short toss. Won't buy a third.
Pros: Love the look. Super lightweight. Knob fits perfectly into my hand.
Cons: I usually don't swing ash wood but for this price you can't beat it.
Pros: This isn't the highest quality wood out there but it gets the job done. I use this bat during BP and in the cages from time to time and I like the way it feels. The finish actually looks great, in my opinion.
Cons: The ash wood seems a little low quality but I haven't had any issues with it yet. It is slightly end loaded and I prefer a balanced bat.
