* Click on each bat in the bat pack to get individual features for that bat
Pros: Good pop, Balanced
Cons: none so far
Pros: evenly weighted cool looking good pop
Cons: breaks easy big and knob
Pros: This bat will not break 10,000 balls and It still holds minor paint chips with lots of pop the most durable bat on the market.
Cons: Handle is slip needs tape
Pros: This bat looks and feels great. It has a lot of "pop" in it.
Cons: I would like to see a bigger barrel end.
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: Felt nice on contact
Cons: Broke after about 2 weeks Little to no grip without pine tar
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: Son said that the bat is great!! Very solid, loves it!!
Cons: Found nothing wrong
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: Good pop - i am line driver hitter
Cons: handle - needs tape
Pros: Love this bat, the feel,the pop and more
Cons: nothing bad so far
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: 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.
