Rated 2.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Big pop This bat has so much pop, the big barrel flys through the zone, try not to get jammed at the handle cause the bat might not hold up October 8, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Broke bat in first game I purchased this item and very first use I took BP then used in one game. Bat broke on 3rd AB. I've had Marucci AP5 and Victus Maple with Bone rubbed finishes that although almost twice the money they both lasted over 100 ABs in game conditions plus pre game BP. July 15, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Lasted 1 BP Session It felt great swinging. Solid contact was great, however, I hit one off the end of the bat, and it broke at the handle. It didn't last one batting practice. July 3, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Break Easily Bought 5 broke all 5 within a month(10 games). Every one broke on the handle very easily. July 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Bat This bat is great. A little top heavy but overall balanced for the most part. I am not a power hitter of any sort and this bat has a lot of pop and has come off the bat very well. Great feel... I suggest using some lizard skin or some kind of grip or pine tar.... the gloss finish is a little slippery with gloves on. June 21, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Complete junk... my 15 yr old son had a weekend wood bat tournament for his AAU team so i went to my local Dick's and checked out the selection of wood bats...at $70 this bat seemed like a good middle of the road price point between the high end Maruccis and the "el-cheapo" Louisville Sluggers...wrong... he got two (2) bp sessions out of the bat before it broke at the handle...i ended up buying the "el-cheapo" Louisville Slugger and he has used it in bp and 5 games so far with no issues... June 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Overall Review This bat is worth the money. I watched a few review videos on Rawlings Big Sticks, and most people said that they were end loaded. In my opinion, they are completely wrong. This is a very well-balanced bat. It has very good pop, has a good sized sweet spot, and is very durable. Also, it has a cool color scheme. The handle has a somewhat glossy finish to it, and hit has the ink dot. The barrel does not have a glossy finish to it at all. I would recommend this bat to anyone. June 4, 2016
