Pros: My 12 year old was in a slump. He plays travel ball in the Midwest. I thought I would try and get him a slightly larger bat (31-21) and something that feels different than the Easton S3 he had been using. We broke the bat in doing soft toss. Probably gave it between 300-400 hits. Everything good. He took it to practice and just killed the ball. Played a 5 game tournament over the weekend and he went 7 for 11. He absolutely loved it. Hit the ball harder than he had all year. Bounced one to the fence at 240 feet. Not bad for a 5'4" 115 pound contact hitter. A couple days later I took him out to the cage and on about the fifth swing it sounded funny. Took a look and a diamond shaped crack just south of the center of the sweet spot. Well, I have done business with Just Bats for the last 4 years and they have always been great. I went ahead and ordered another G3. I'm hoping the first one was defective and it was a fluke. I hope this one holds up.
Cons: Durability issue with first bat. I hate to be the first one to post here and be negative about this bat. Like I stated above it is a great bat as long as it will hold up. Will comment again in a few weeks on the second one.
