Louisville Slugger Fungo Ash Bat
Quality does not meet expectations
I bought this fungo to hit ground balls for practices. After two months the barrel is chipping off on the grain. I trust the brand, but would have been been better of to spend $50 on a non wooden version. There is no warranty on wooden bats, so I am kind of stuck. It will still work, but I am sad that it did not last very long! I should have ordered online what I wanted instead of buying what was in the shelf at the local store. Lesson learned!

Find another fungo
This fungo broke the first day I used it. I've been coaching for 10 years and have only broke one other fungo. I taped this one up tightly at the crack and its working fine but for $50 I expect more.

I've never had a Fungo before so I don't have any experience to compare it with. The bat seems to be made well. I use it for little league kids to practice fielding. I used some grip tape on the handle and on the barrel to give me control and I can effortlessly hit grounders, liners, and pop ups wherever I want them to go. I'll do about 100 hits without straining myself. Much easier than using one of the old spent 28 inch aluminum bats. Great for my use. Finish seemed pretty average and I probably payed a bit too much but it was convenient to see and buy at the store

This bat is extremely lightweight.....lightest fungo I've ever used. I'll wait and see how durable it is....too early to tell.

Hoping to find an aluminum or bambo bat
The product should work fine in the short term. I was hoping to get a fungo made from other materials instead of wood. The bat would likely last longer. The salesperson (who was great) checked and only wood bats were available.
