Pros: Absurd pop - at least as much pop as the 2015 xl1. I have swung both bats, and the feel of the ball leaving the bat is very similar. Very similar weight distribution as the xl1. I am a 240lb, 6-4 father. Great bat for 12-14yo's who weigh at least 120-125lbs.
Cons: My son is 13yo, 5-8 and 112lbs. We bought the bat after watching last year's 13yo's look like super heroes hitting with the xl1. Although my son loved the pop of the bat, he could not make the necessary adjustments during a swing to ultimately control the end loaded weight distribution of the bat.
