This is an update from my previous review. The bat has been used almost everyday in the cage. I'm estimating that it's hit a few 100 balls by now. I've used it at a ball field, also. This bat has great pop and feel. I really like the softer ash... you can put a curve on a line drive and sneak a flare over second. One thing I've noticed is the softer grain is beginning to compress between the harder grain lines. The barrel feels ribbed on the sweet spot. This is normal, of course, so roll the label up and down. I use a wine shaped bottle to bone the bat. No complaints... going to get another bcuz this price is just too good. p.s. a Marucci blem Line Drive is more expensive and not as good.Review by email@example.com (Posted on 9/4/2016)
It has been durable for batting practice. I was a bit hesitant with the price, but I was mistaken. It is a great bat.Review by gerrardot (Posted on 8/26/2016)
I have a 12 slot bat rack; it's full. This bat goes to the head of the class. Perfect balance, barely feel the ball. I hit tons of balls in my batting cage setup where I give hitting lessons. A high school student stopped by, 'hey, try that new Marucci.' One swing, pop... his eye got wide, 'wow, that's nice... so smooth'. Here's the thing with wood bats. They need to be balanced bcuz a proper swing must keep the bat on plane.Review by firstname.lastname@example.org (Posted on 7/22/2016)
The handle is comfortably thin; I usually swing a 110 turn which has a bit more meat but this is a-ok. The barrel is perfect. Feels solid and moves thru the zone like butter. The white ash is nimble light. For the price... this is a winner!

broke after 3
games and 1 practice.
it would have been nice to know the age of the bat to know if it was dried out....
