Pros: I bought this bat for my 12 yo son playing Little League this year to be an introduction to using a wood bat and a back up for a much more expensive composite bat. He likes this wood bat the most (has hit two 220+ ft homeruns with it). I'm wishing I'd got this first (just bought a second one for back-up), the composite bat is barely used. He likes the feel and balance. The sound of a ball coming off the bat is magic!
Cons: It's wood, so he's got to be sure he has the grain lined up.
