Pros: I'm a 10 year old kid and I hit it off the wall of a 230 fence
Pros: Player I hit the ball over the fence with this bat nothing is better then this bat
Pros: Looks good. Nice grip and graphics.
Cons: This bat has no pop at all. Got this for my 11 year old son and am very disappointed. Maybe we got a lemon, since the ball sounds like it is coming off a composite bat when my son hits the ball. Very disappointed.
Pros: lots of pop drives ball amazing beautiful feel
Pros: My 10 year old son added a lot of pop from upgrading from an inexpensive clearance bat. The weight has great distribution and overall is a really nice bat.
Cons: Just opinion, but my son doesn't like the grip, too thin, and it has a large sweet spot, but if you don't hit right on it, a good amount of vibration.
Pros: it feels good it is more of getting a linedrive i love this bat rawlings let me demo it and i love it
Cons: i cant really tell the durability
Pros: I bought the 28/18 for my 7 year old who was swinging a 27/17 Slugger 517. The bat is very balanced with the unique composite end cap and the pop is amazing. The difference in pop from the 517 to this bat is unbelievable. This bat really puts the ball out there when we did the side-by-side comparison and it didn't have anything to do with the additional inch in size. My son loves how loud it is as well. Great bat to bridge kids from the Jr. big barrel to a higher level Sr. league bat. Best aluminum bat I've bought in the last 5 years and with 2 boys, I've bought a lot.
Cons: Sting from this bat on mishit balls is more pronounced than on previous easton and Louisville bats we have owned but not enough to concern. My son didn't like the grip that came on it so we swapped it out with a lizard skin an he is happy now. The grip was good, but is very thick and made it harder for the 7u player with smaller hands to grip. That switch likely contributed to additional sting, but had to do it.
Pros: I got the bbcor version for my younger brother and he had great review and experience, so decided to get my son one as well 28/18 (he is a 7u/8u player). we are a marucci family, loved the cat 6&7 but this bat really put the cat 7 to rest. great balance and pop. rawlings did its thing with this one
Cons: the grip
Pros: My son is a 11u travel player, 5'3" 100 pounds, tall w long arms. He felt more comfortable with the 2 5/8 with the thinker handle for his big hands. Couple of our power hitters went 2 3/4 with the thinner handle. College players at a pro shop/training facility recommended this last year as having the best combination of balance, speed and pop. It's true, the kids love these bats and the performance is really good.
Cons: 1-piece, little sting with mis-hits, not sure on durability let, very stiff but the performance is outweighing the feel for our boys.
Pros: Only had this bat for about two months so it's hard to tell about durability but we just switched from the 2015 "5150" and it was still in great shape, just outgrew it. Really good pop and is really loud when it hits the ball which I feel can startle the defense just a little bit as a bonus. Lol. I use it some to hit grounders and fly balls in practice and it seems well balanced. Already had a couple of parents order one for their players.
Cons: None so far.
Pros: No one in our area has one but my 10 year old grandson. I guarantee I will see more now. He said it immediately felt right in terms of look, grip and swing feel. Used it to practice for 1 week before tournament play. 1st games had great results. Exit velocity seems intense. Comparative cost with other bats of Velo caliber is a plus. I spoke to a vendor who has great knowledge of the bat before the purchase and he said, "Get the Velo for your grandson and he will thank you for it." He already has.
Cons: None yet. Only 2 weeks in. I can't comment on durability although I have not heard that there is a problem.
Pros: very light swing weight. son had been using combat but i wanted to go to alloy. 10u contact hitter. he sisnt all of a sudden start hitting dingers but he started hitting harder hits. went from batting 6&7 to 2nd. for a smaller kid i would definately recommend this. lightest swing weight out there and i tested 12 different bats. love the soundnof a solid hit.
Cons: the barrel doesnt look as long and isnt compared to others. main reason is handle is thicker to get swing weight down. grip isnt as good as others preference wise. put a thick lizard skin on. son hasnt complained about the sting much at all
Pros: my 8 year old just starting using. hits farther than when he had a louiville. great so far, worth the money.
Cons: none yet
Pros: My son likes the bat more than any other bat. Great pop! The weight is spot on at 20.4oz.
Cons: Nothing yet
Pros: good pop and feel
Cons: super loud
