Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by lasted less than a month My sons first wooden bat, loved it hit great less than a month in it split in two. Not worth it. Will buy next bat at local shop that will replace it if it breaks within one year. September 20, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Breaks way to easy Bought three of these bats for summer baseball played two games and broke two bats. These bats are really good to hit a ball a long way but they just do not hold up. Say all you got to say about this or that but these bats need to hold up better. I have already ordered three composite bats to see how they hold up. I will use the third bat till its broke. The way that's going that will be the next game or two. June 7, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 2nd Review This is a follow up to my 1st review. I have now broken my 2nd one of these, but this one lasted a lot longer. I'm currently using my 3rd and possibly my last before I try the new Bamboo/Maple Composite they came out with. Overall this bat is heavy but very solid. It is a hard bat so the ball feels great coming off of it and you barely feel the impact, but a hard hit off of the end or handle is likely to break it. I will purchase more of these if the new composite bat ends up being a failure. Keep in mind, these are wood bats and likely to break eventually. The better you are at hitting in the right spot the longer it will last. And never use these at a batting cage. Hope this review helps. May 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love This Bat! Great bat. Good pop. Holding up well, even after getting jammed on a few swings. Bat is a little end loaded, just how I like it. Feels great when hit on the sweat spot. March 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing I purchased a 34 inch. Best wood bat I've ever had. I've had it for 2 months now and I don't even have one chip! These bats are great. Lots of power and pop. I highly recommend this bat. October 26, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall I liked the bat The bat felt great with a good solid feel. I was only able to get 8 hits off the back before a hit off the end broke it. I have broken a lot of bats this way and broke 4 others this season so it's expected. Will buy another one and see how this one lasts. Overall I think it's a good purchase for the sale price. I would not pay the full $99 for this bat I don't think. August 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING I got this for bp before Highschool games and it has a smooth feel to it. Get a ball off the shaft or end, dont even feel it. The whole team used it and said it was great, that there was less vibration then some of the aluminum bats. I recommend getting some lizard skin for it too. July 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Pop Got this bat on Saturday, slightly cheaper than some of the other Maple options. Used it for the first time Sunday and put a ball off the wall. Felt real nice coming off the bat, too. Made solid contact every at-bat. So far I love this thing. I will be sure to update if it doesn't hold up over the next few games, but I think it's pretty good bang for the buck. July 6, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by $$$ down the toilet... Didn't even last a month. Ugh. My son is 15 and it was a splurge for me to buy this bat for him as he needed a bigger bat than what his team supplied. Single Mom budget, sadly, that was money wasted. Never again. June 23, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Got 10 swings out of it very disappointing. hit one hard towards the end of the barrel and it snapped in half. I've hit plenty of balls in tht same spot and never had it snap especially with a brand new bat June 2, 2015
