Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overweight My son has struggled with this bat all season after making great progress as a hitter last year. I weighed it early on and while the posted size is 27/16, it's really well over 18 ounces -- it's annoying that they can get away with a manufacturing defect of that magnitude as it really affects his ability to swing it. We tried to return it to see if another bat (even one of the same make and model that was not 2+ ounces overweight) was available, but the selection was picked over so he's tried to play with it. He's on the small side at less than 50 pounds as a seven year old and there just aren't many lighter bats out there that meet the new standard. I'm giving it two stars instead of one because bigger players may have better luck -- at this price point it's fine other than the weight inaccuracy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Having success Got this for my 10 year old who was struggling a bit. He's had good results over the past 3 games. Single, 2 doubles, and a triple. His teammates are getting lots of hits with it, too. It's the current "lucky" bat. He does say there's some sting, but he doesn't seem to mind after he hits a triple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More hits! We bought this bat for each of our sons (coach pitch and kid pitch levels), after they were struggling a bit to make contact with their new Easton bats (the ones at the lower price point). The weight has better distribution in this bat and they are able to bring it around much faster than the other. Also, the wider barrel helps and we're seeing more success at the plate since they started with the new USA regulation bats this season. It seems like a great bat and worth the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Go shorter with a bigger barrel The balance on the big barrel USA bats is off, because they don't have the same high drop weight as the USSSA travel ball bats. For USA bats, my son had trouble with the weight at the end of the bat. For him, it's like swinging with a donut on the bat. I didn't figure it out until nearly the end of his rec season, but I was able to find a cheap Rawlings Predator in the old 2 1/4" diameter that he was much more accurate with. So if your kid is hitting popups or dropping his bat head before coming around, consider a shorter bat or the old diameter so they can control it better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great bat for starters! Bought this bat for my son's first year in machine pitch and so far has been hitting that ball just about every time. It's a great bat and haven't had no problems with it even after a month.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value! I bought this bat for my grandson about a month ago. It has improved his hitting! Ideal weight to length ratio!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from My 8 year old bent this bat This bat lasted 8 weeks and is now bent. My kid hits hard but not that hard! I called Rawlings and they will send me a new bat. I'm upgrading to the model 5150 with -10 drop. Note: box is there just to angle the bat so you can see the bend
