Pros: Excellent bat. My 10-yr old son loved the balance and feel of the bat. He couldn't wait to get into the cage, once he got in he was hitting some serious line drives.
Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: AP5YB
My sons had the 28 inch model, which I found the handle to be a tad thin
This bat has a very balanced swing weight added to the giant sweet spot that allows for loads of pop
Pros: Excellent bat. My 10-yr old son loved the balance and feel of the bat. He couldn't wait to get into the cage, once he got in he was hitting some serious line drives.
Pros: The 29' is a couple ounces heavier than the 28' Chase Utley model, but my smaller 10 year old son can get it through the zone jut fine. The barrel has a bigger sweet spot so he gets more pop with it. Marucci makes great, durable bats for younger players to use to make the BBCOR transition much easier.
Pros: It has good power.
Cons: A bigger barrel.
Pros: Great balance, the bat swung lighter than the actual weight. Hits were very solid and no vibration. The bat showed very little wear after one tournament.
Cons: The cupped end is vulnerable to damage on a mis hit.
Pros: GREAT BAT. I always hit with it. JUST GET IT!
Pros: My 11 y/o son got this bat earlier this year and immediately fell in love with it. Took only a few cage sessions to get used to the weight difference and the feel but once he figured it out he started doubles.
Pros: This bat has a very balanced swing weight added to the giant sweet spot that allows for loads of pop. The tapered knob really makes this bat very comfortable to swing. This bat does chip relatively easily, but not that much chipping. The paint finish is great I really like these colors more than the CU26. Over all this is the best youth wood bat you could get
Pros: Tons of pop, great bat!!
Cons: End cup chips easily
Pros: The best wood bat ever. Big barrel, feels light, and has amazing pop. It is just downright the best wood bat in the business.
Pros: My 10 year old son loved the bat. Once he started hitting live pitches, he was rocking the ball.
Pros: Balanced weight
Pros: Son used it in his first wood bat tournament of the year. He had no issues with the weight. He had some nice line drives with it, despite being a little heavier and an inch longer than his usual bat. Marucci makes great wood bat products! Shipping was fast as usual with justbats.com
Cons: None--looks and feels great!
Pros: My swing is a down and up so it goes far and high and my cousin he's 10 I'm 12 he can hit bombs with this bat. And the durability Is great .
Cons: With a cupped tip i swung at a breaking ball and I destroyed my bat.
Pros: Even though an approx -5 drop, this bats feels lighter Great looks Good pop for a wood bat
Cons: Everyone will want to use it.
Pros: Nice Looking Good Grip
Cons: Not very much pop Hard to get barrel in zone
Pros: All in all good bat just poorly made
Cons: Its a great bat all in all but seems weak if a 11yr old kid can hit a ball and brake the bat in half by the handle doesn't say much. Since we are over 30 days they will not warranty the bat used 16 times
Pros: Wanted a wood bat for offseason hitting. My 10yr old son has about 500 swings with the bat 30/25. Feels great in his hands, he loves the feeling and sound off the bat when a ball is squared up.
Cons: Grip: We didn't want to use pine tar so we purchased a lizard skin grip and installed it. Problem solved
Cons: it broke after 2 hits
Pros: Looks good
Cons: Broke in half the first time I used it
Pros: My sons had the 28 inch model, which I found the handle to be a tad thin. So, when it was time to move up to a 29 inch, I bought him a JB model, because of the thicker handle, which he likes, but without the tapered knob, which he wished for. The 30 inch model had the best of both world, tapered knob, and surprisingly, thick handle like a JB. Not sure if this is by design, or just a variability in the bat making process. I ordered 2 bats, one was a minus 7, the other a minus 6. The -7 would be his game bat, and I am encouraging him to train with the -6. Five Stars in all categories, beautiful, hard bats, that produces a lovely contact that an MLB player would approve.
Cons: Wish no cup is an option
Pros: good feel. ball popped of the bat. looked good
Cons: less then 50 swings and the bat broke in half.
Pros: My son absolutely loves this bat! He's a 10 yr. old and has just started using it for winter season. Well balanced and nice pop. We'll see how long it lasts.
