Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 67 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good bat So far so good.will buy another one song can keep and extra bat August 8, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Inexpensive bat for batting practice I bought this bat strictly for batting practice because the price was right. The bat itself is somewhat heavier than I expected, but for batting practice it's fine. If it breaks, it is not a big deal because it was so cheap. I used it in the batting cage and played a game with my game bat the next day. The game bat felt nice and light in comparison. You can't go wrong if you just use it for practice, or in the cage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bat was broken quickly I understand the nature of wooden bats but this bat broke within less that a dozen balls at an embarrassingly low ball speed (okay 50 mph), struck fairly well. Very disappointed, I highly would not recommend this bat. July 8, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Broken!!! My son liked the way it felt but it broke after one tournament. This bat is cheap and you get what you pay for. June 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smooth finish nice dark color Nice bat for price great for batting cages where you don't want to wreck your good bat June 11, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good Inexpensive Bat Even with a nearly invisible crack in the grain along the handle, it works well. Smaller barrel diameter. Decent basic bat. I have not used it for fast pitch baseball. June 8, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by good inexpensive wood bat. Fun for practicing for the youth baseball players. May 24, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by What you pay is what you get. For $20, this actually a pretty solid bat. The quality of the wood isn't great, but then again the bat's cheap. I ordered mine online, couldn't select which model, which was the only negative. I was concerned about shipping damage, but the bat was decently protected and came in fine. I received the Joey Votto model of the bat (I'm guessing his bats aren't cupped because mine isn't). It doesn't have a big barrel nor the wood quality of Louisville Slugger's, MaxBat's or Marucci's high-end stuff, so I knew off the bat (pun intended) that I wasn't going to be hitting bombs like Ortiz. Still, the bat felt pretty good. It had a pretty good balance in the swing, nice medium sized handle (I prefer a medium sized handle), and it stayed pretty flat in the zone. Some bats that are end heavy can drop leading to pop-ups and fouls (my personal experience with end heavy bats, you may be fine with it), especially if you're not used to end heavy bats. I use my bat for BP (machine and soft toss) and helping my brother work on his fielding. I have used it in a couple of club/IM games, nothing TOO serious. I got a couple of dings from accidentally throwing the bat on my follow through and hitting the fence, but it hasn't affected performance of the bat. It's preferred use would be training and recreational games, not competitive games. So take the bat into games at your own risk. May 20, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by hit..hit..crack 3 at bats and crack, it the lay of the land with wood bats but this one cracked especially easy. April 26, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good for what you pay for I use these guys for BP. Tape up the handle/barrel, no sense spending $80 on a BP bat March 18, 2016
