Pros: GREAT BAT!!!!!!!
Pros: Great looks, great feel, and great pop. Very well made and solid.
Cons: none yet other than slightly heavy.
Pros: Beautiful bat. Solid feel and incredibly well balanced. I got this for my son for Christmas to do winter work and get stronger: he absolutely loves the bat.
Cons: None yet..a little heavy at drop 4-5, but simply a great bat.
Pros: Great pop, good sweet spot, good sound, good balance First game, I had 2 home runs with it.
Pros: Great hitting, great pop, good looks, and cool texture
Pros: My 10u slugger plays in a yearly wood bat tourney. In years past I'd get him ash bats because it's lighter to get it closer to his Easton bats, but he'd break'em all within 6 months. I decided this past winter to get him this SamBat for cage work and a custom model for his tournament. He loves them both! The black cage bat is a workhorse and the game bat is almost too beautiful to hit with. The maple is rock hard and extremely durable. He looks forward to practice sessions knowing they'll be sting-free and sounding like the pros.
Cons: Yellow cage balls leave marks on the black barrel. Not dents, but impressions from the balls, almost 3D like. Tough to remove and looks strange, but doesn't appear to effect performance.
Pros: Every ball player shoukd train with a wood bat no matter what their age is.
Cons: Non so far
Pros: my son loves the look and feel, waited until the season was over to buy it, so he never used it in a game. Dad loves the look and finish

Sam Bat grew out of careful research and a thorough knowledge of eastern hardwoods. It also developed from a simple question by Bill MacKenzie, then of the Colorado Rockies: "We're just breaking too many bats. Do you think you could come up with an answer to that?"
