Pros: good balance, nice pop, fun to swing. Weighed a perfect 30 oz (drop 3). Great for training with a bat that has a smaller, less forgiving sweet spot.Cons: Like too many others, the bat broke after about a week and a half of cage work (my batting cages use real baseballs, not the dimpled, rubber ones that are so hard on bats). NOT warranted like more expensive LS wood bats.Bought this for my 13yo to work with a wood bat in the batting cages. The idea was to make him a better hitter by using a less-forgiving (than an aluminum, BBCOR) bat. And I took a few cuts with it too... it's fun to swing this bat. BUT, the bat broke at the handle because the grain was too steeply sloped there (look up "ink dot test"). This bat might be OK for a coach or a dad to hit some infield practice or pop flies with, but if you're going to swing it like you mean it, look elsewhere.Less expensive bats (around $50) are less expensive partly because they don't meet the straightness of grain requirements to make it LESS LIKELY to break (even the good ones can break). If you'll be doing a lot of hitting with it, buy a bat in the $100 - $150 range. Buy once, cry once. It's trite, but true.
