Rated 4 out of 5 by 61 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bat for the money! I coach my son's 8-year old little league team. I'm not going to say anything like "with this bat my kid hits it into the outfield all the time" because I believe that is primarily a function of hitting mechanics, age, and using the appropriate bat #length and drop# for the hitter. The great thing about this bat is its drop of 12. The lightweight design makes it perfect for kids that don't yet have the strength to get a -11 or -10 drop through the zone with speed #i.e., most 8 year olds#. Through one season, the bat has been durable #no dents, etc.#. As the season progressed, this became the bat of choice for most of the kids on my team. For the money, you can't go wrong. The sting can be bad on this bat--but I say "can be" because sting is caused by contact outside of the sweet spot. Although there was one time that the sting produced tears, the silver lining is that my son was very cognizant of the importance of hitting the ball properly on the sweet spot after a season of using the bat #what doesn't kill us makes us stronger:#.

Rated 2 out of 5 by A 1-Season Bat I bought this for my 10-year-old to use in Little League. The bat lasted for a short Fall Ball season and 2/3 of a Spring season before it went dead. On the bright side, it wasn't expensive, and he broke it hitting a grand slam. August 28, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Vibrates so bad my son won't use it Knowing nothing about the different types of bats available, we let our son pick which ever bat he wanted. Honestly, he chose this one just because it "looks cool". He hates it. He says it vibrates so bad it makes his hand hurt. He got to the point where he wasn't even trying to hit, because he didn't want it to hurt. We got vibration reducing batting gloves, still didn't help. One of the other dad's on the team clued in to what was happening and told him to try one of the team bats. It was like night and day. Once he got that first hit and realized it didn't hurt, he was hitting better instantly. Not sure why some people feel so much vibration and others don't, but I wouldn't recommend this bat to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Decent for a year at most Bought this last season, worked pretty well last year. Decent pop for the price. Son started using it again this year and noticed that he wasn't getting any power out of it. I took the bat and tried hitting balls into to outfield off a tee (Pretty easy task with ANY bat including my cheap wood one) but I could barely get the ball to clear the infield. It's completely dead at this point! June 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bat. Teach your son proper mechanics/timing and it won't hurt his hands. Good trampoline effect and great balance. My son (12) uses this in the Little League Majors Division and drives the ball well with it. May 26, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by 25 " 15 oz 2 5/8 BIG BARREL Bat for my 5 year old Everyone talks about the sting from the bat. Of coarse if you hit on the knuckles and end your going to get vibration. My 5 year old crushes the ball with this bat. He hits futher than my 9 year old with his bat. The sound when he gets the sweet spot is excellent. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BAT May 23, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by if you bunt you might have a chance this bat has so much sting the only chance you have to reach 1b is to bunt i highly unrecomend May 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Yes, some vibration, but very good "pop" I thought I had reviewed this bat, but it didn't show up. I bought it w/o reviewing prior reviews. My seven year old used it at practice and hit five nice hits, but then one off the handle, and he vowed to never use it. An hour later, now with batting gloves, he is using it and hitting the ball farther than with his Catalyst and Voodoo. First game and he hits the furthest ball I've seen by all teams #first year kid pitch# all season. A second player used it yesterday and hit the ball much further than he has in the past. But when not on the sweet spot, this bat will sting. I also note I bought mine used, and it is likely somewhat broken in and may have better pop because of such. It might be a 3 star, but for the price, and based upon game performance, I upped it to four stars. Now if you child is sensitive, I might not buy this bat #the one piece design is more prone to vibrations#. May 12, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Vibration, Vibration, Vibration!!...I would like a refund but its too late!! I apologized to my son over and over again thinking I didn't believe him. He is 9 and plays with the big boys and he complained of vibration. I kept telling him to tighten your grip. Well I just tried his bat and OMG i couldn't feel my hands. Rawlings needs to recall this bad as it vibrates in every spot. I hit the sweet spot 5 complete times and each time, it vibrated. I even had this bat professional rolled, broken it etc. April 25, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by please don't buy for your child I just bought this bat for my nine year old. He was very excited as it is the start of baseball and the bat is his favorite color. Five hits later he couldn't feel his hands it rattled so bad. This plus the fact that the ball doesn't barely come off the bat for a composite (he could barely hit it to the grass) makes this a terrible purchase. I don't know what Rawlings was thinking with this piece of junk, but please don't disappoint you kid like I did. April 20, 2015
