Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 74 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bat broke in 2nd game I've had 2 of these bats this year. First one lasted for awhile before it cracked near the handle. The second one broke in the 2nd game I played and the pitcher was throwing slow and it was an outside pitch! Handles are to thin and crack. Waste of $70. October 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's a hit! Awesome bat. Use it at the batting cages. Love the weight and the feel. Rawlings rules! Thanks. August 13, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by TOP HEAVY I am used to top heavy bats like the Easton XL1 so I thought the top-heaviness would be okay. BUT BOY WAS I WRONG! This bat is top heavy like no other!! July 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great bat Great bat, Dicks retail markup is just too high... February 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by know how to use a wood bat this bat is awesome. if you swing at about 80-90% and square the ball up on the sweet-spot the ball just jumps. for those saying it breaks too easily. either you hit the ball off the handle, the end, or you had the Rawlings logo facing forward or back. the logo should be facing up or down at all times. hold the bat as if in mid swing just in front of the plate where you would make contact and rotate the bat in your hands until the logo is facing up or down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rawlings R243 Big Stick Pro Maple Bat This bat seems to hold up. This is the second one I have bought for my son. The first one lasted a year. He's a freshman in high school and plays on a select team also. So he hits a lot off of it. Good bat for the price. January 14, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A Big League bat Nicely balanced. A quality bat for the price. Always nice to hear the crack of a wooden bat in the cage. January 13, 2015
