Pros: Bat seems to have really good pop!
Light weight, well balanced.
Good price and fast shipping!
My son loves it!
I bought this bat for a my 8yr old son playing travel ball, only used it in practice so far but it seems to work well for him. He is swinging the 28"-18oz.
Cons: Bat seems to have a some slight vibration to the handle if you miss the sweet spot. My 8yr old was swinging it the other day on a colder day and got some bat sting in the handle when just missing the sweet spot.
Unsure about the durability because we just bought it, maybe I can update this after a full use of the bat during summer 8u travel ball.

Louisville Slugger is the Official Bat of Major League Baseball and the #1 name in baseball since the earliest days of the sport.

I had 2 contacts with your customer service people. When I initially made the order, I did not opt for the faster shipping. Realizing my error, I called up and got it sorted. It was nice having someone actually listen and follow through. When I called back to give my CC for the extra charge, the gentleman was super professional and nice. Your phone reps are awesome!
