Pros:  Son liked it. Only used it for hitting practice.

Cons:  Can't agree on durability. It broke just past the 90 day warranty. I also notice it's selling for about 25 bucks less than I paid.

Pros:  This is a very durable bat that holds up well. The bat end weight distribution allows batters to turn on pitches and drive the ball. Bat barrel is similar in size to C243 barrel diameter which increases contact ratio for hitters.

Cons:  Recommendation is to add lizard skin to bat for better grip. Bat has larger knob and handle that C243.

Pros:  Prior to this, I used a composite wood Easton S1 bamboo / maple composite. I thought that was the bat I was looking for. Once I used this bat in the cage (live pitching) I found this bat to be a great deal better, at half the price. Its quick, and balanced in the swing, and is slightly heavier in the barrel. In on the hands, bang. Outside corner, bang. Its a good bat, have yet to figure the durability on it. The only complaint from others was the tapered knob on the end, which I happen to like more than the traditional knob. If you like a well balanced bat, with a sharp no-frills look, give this thing a try.

Cons:  None yet, I like this stick.

Pros:  This bat, man i'll tell ya, it's super solid, feels great in hand, the pop is PHENOMENAL! The finish is beautiful, dare I say, a work of art. The weight distribution is remarkable as well, just overall everything about this bat is great (so far- just got it in the mail recently). Great bang for your buck!

Cons:  none so far, and i believe there won't be (hope i'm correct)

Pros:  Lots of pop. Very durable. I'm 45 competing against 20 somethings, and I've used the same MZB331 bat the past two seasons and it's kept me relevant in the league. The ball jumps off the sweet spot of the barrel. Price point is incredible.

Cons:  Thicker handle than the Mizuno MZB243 tougher to whip the barrel through the zone.

Pros:  I have been using this bat in the cage only, and using a maple bat in games...I decided to switch it up last week, and hit 4 rocket line drives with this bat. The feel of this bat is amazing, with excellent pop.

Cons:  Had a few markings in the finish, but not a big deal to me.

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:  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.

What's the size of the barrel? I'm looking for a 2.44 size barrel. Similar to a 2012-2013 Mizuno mzm62 bat.

Unfortunately we are not entirely sure as to the exact barrel diameter of the Mizuno Classic Bamboo Wood Baseball Bat: MZB331 Matte Chocolate Adult. This is a question better directed to Mizuno as a 331 turn model is not a common turn among manufacturers.

What's the weight of the bat?

The Mizuno Classic Bamboo Wood Baseball Bat (MZB331) Matte Chocolate Adult is approximately 3 ounces less than the length. We say approximately because wood is harder to be consistent on.

In general, does a bamboo bat feel more like a alloy barrel as far as the finish and look? And what is a composite bamboo bat as opposed to regular wood? Have 13 yr old twins about 5'8" 155 lbs, any suggestions?

A bamboo bat like the Mizuno Classic Bamboo Wood Baseball Bat: MZB331 Matte Chocolate Adult will feel lighter than a maple bat but will not flake like an ash bat would. Would not say that the finish or feel will resemble that of a metal bat. A composite wood bamboo bat essentially will feature a composite reinforced handle which will allow the bat to be more durable on the off-centered hits. As for a player of your sons' height and weight, we would recommend getting the Mizuno Classic Bamboo Wood Baseball Bat: MZB331 Matte Chocolate Adult in a 31 inch model (when considering age) otherwise a 32 inch bat would be our recommendation.

I recently started playing baseball, after playing fast pitch softball for several years, and I'm looking for wooden baseball bat that is light, but also has length. I am female, 5'8" and weigh 162. What do you recommend?

Based on your height and weight I would recommend a Mizuno Classic Bamboo Wood Baseball Bat (MZB331) Matte Chocolate Adult in the 32" style.

What's the difference between this bat, the MZM271 and the MZM110?

To be honest, all 3 bats being considered are extremely similar. This Mizuno Classic Bamboo Wood Baseball Bat (MZB331 Matte Chocolate Adult), the MZM271 and the MZM110 will all be very balanced bats. I would give the MZM110 the slight advantage as being the most balanced due to its thicker handle, but neither this MZB331 or the MZM271 are far behind in regard to balance.
