Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good performance so far! Solid hitting bat. No sign of breakage yet. 15 yr old son is very well pleased. Dropped one at foot of 375' fence on first day of wood bat tourney. September 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Product I bought one to add a cheap Maple to arsenal. This thing is going after about 30 at bats. Playing in 18+ division and facing 80+ at times. Has great pop and durability. Should have broken at least 5 times from handle and cup shots but still solid. Just important to hit with grain and my has fone well. Bought 2 more when they were on sale last week for $39 but still using the first. May 21, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Broke on its 5th swing Not sure if I got a bad one but it cracked in 2 spots on its 5th swing. Not impressed. April 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING BAT This friggin bat is amazing. I been using it every game and right now im batting .538 bc of it. February 27, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by large crack before I used it. Bought bat 5pm tuesday.Wed 5pm I put it in truck, went to practice, pulled it out of bag to show it off, and wham, a 4" crack from the end of barrel. February 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by it is a well balanced bat The bat feels solid when contact with the ball. Also is very well balanced allowing for a nice level swing. January 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This bat can stand up to 85 MPH pitching and deliver We bought this bat while travelling during the summer to play in a Northern California 18 and under wooden bat league. The Ripken 33 inch held up well; I put a wrap on the handle from the beginning and had a great experience hitting to all fields. I used it during fall ball with the Zoots, played in three tournaments around the country and it is holding up fine. I wax the bat after each game, as I was told this helps on contact with the ball. It is my number one bat, and I have have wooden bats from every major producer and custom bats as well. It is odd that the least expensive bat I own, allows me to hit balls on a line drive 340 feet time after time. P. Griessel December 14, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by OK bat The handle is thinner, so my son prefers it. Weight is generally neutral as compared to the end-heavy Marucci. We have broken 2 of these. To be fair, both breaks occurred on mis-hit balls (a nasty change-up and a mis-read curve. As your would expect, maple is just not as break-resistant as ash. November 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase I bought the bat for my son since he was constantly breaking Ash bats. The bats has great pop for the price. Would recommend this bat. Great price. October 28, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by One swing ... And broke! Great in store... First swing, hit... BROKE! Wished it didn't!!! October 28, 2014
