Rated 5 out of 5 by dadcoach33 makes a difference...
My 11yr old and 10yr old both love the bat. They say that there is little, to no vibration in the handle, and by the way they're swinging it; I believe them! The grounders are scorching, and the line-drives are definitely carrying farther. Makes a nice sound, and it's a good looking bat. I personally like the matte finish...it just looks cool. Worth the consideration if you're in the market for something like the Easton S1 (or S2). My guys used the S1 from a friend, and they prefer the Vertex over it because of the grip. Both are great bats, and it's going to come down to those "little things" like a nice grip, that will make your decision on whether to purchase the Vertex, or something like the S1. If I'm being honest, I picked this bat for another reason. This is an excellent performing bat that is under the radar of most young players, and I didn't want everyone on the team asking to borrow it all the time, because they all know the Easton. And so far...its worked!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Steve S. Good bat
I purchased this bat for my 9 year old son. It is a very nice bat but has a small sweet spot. The weight and length are great for him, hopefully he will grow into the bat and be able to use it for a couple years. Hopefully once the bat get's broken it, the sweet spot will expand, otherwise he will switch back to his DeMarini bat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nikki26 i love it
i strongly suggest this to kids who need a new bat, it has great pop and even greater pop when it's shaved you can get it in stores.
