Pros:  Nice light weight bat. When hit on the sweet spot, the ball flies. Overall, very good bat.

Cons:  Vibration felt on the handle, put hockey tape around the handle, took care of the problem.

Pros:  I bought this bat last spring to use in a summer wood bat league. I have been thoroughly impressed thus far. The bat has great pop and the durability has also been great. We had several first time players hitting with the bat, so as expected there have been many balls hit off of the handle. The bat has stood up great and is now entering its second season of use. All in all this is a great bat for the money.

Cons:  As others have commented, there was a little vibration when hitting. I used a little tape on the handle and problem solved. Also not necessarily a "con" but I would like to see an option for a 4oz drop as the bat is a little light.

Pros:  Great for the cold weather games. Good bat for looping one over the infield if hit on the sweet spot. Great bat for practice as the barrel is thinner than your standard composite bat. Very durable. Very pleased, it is perfect for what I want to use it for: practice, cold games, and base hits.

Cons:  There is vibration if not hit on the sweet spot, again some tape clears that problem up. Not a home run hitting bat. Smaller barrel leaves little room for error.

Pros:  I started playing slow pitch wood bat softball for the first time three years ago. I bought two of these bats thinking that I'd likely break one soon enough. We the first one lasted me almost 3 full years and I mourned it's loss. It turns out that the barrel is a tiny bit smaller than some of the others that I've seen other people using but since it was the first I used I've gotten very comfortable with it. I've read some other people saying that the bat doesn't have that much pop in it. I beg to differ. I crush with this bat. The handle feels like it had just enough flex in it to put some distance on the ball but not too much to be distracting.

Cons:  I always swing hard and there have been numerous times where my team thought for sure that I'd broken this bat because of the sound it sometimes makes when you don't hit the sweet spot but it wasn't till about 3 years in that I really broke it. It saddens me to see that the model that I'd purchased ( a black bat) isn't here any more. I was really hoping to buy another to have in case I break my second. I guess when that time comes I'll have to give this new blue model a chance and hope it's as good.

The Vulcan Grip, will it apply on top of the tape already on the bat, or do I have to remove that first? Is there an option for you to apply it before it's shipped?

To apply the Vulcan Grip you would take off the original grip on the Brett Bros. Thunder Bamboo/Maple Wood Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SST500 Black/Blue and you would put the Vulcan grip on. Unfortunately there is no option for us to put those on before shipping at this time.
