Pros: I've only used this bat at the cages since it's december in Cincinnati. However, this is one of the best bats I've ever swung. The bat comes through the zone smooth. The only thing I can compare it to is like a knife through warm butter. Also, the ball seems to be flying off the bat. About 25 cuts and the bat was hot. Also it looks incredible. The flat black with neon green is great. If you have the money, get this bat.
Cons: Still a 5 star bat in my opinion but the tape grip is too thin for me. Not a real problem because I will get Lizard Skin Wrap
Pros: -Looks/graphics are awesome
-The grip is the best yet from easton
-The bat is very well ballanced
-For a 1.2 cert bat, has one of the more better feels and "pop" compared to other bats I've swung (Miken, Worth, TPS, Demarini)
Cons: -I don't like that is only has a 6-month warrenty
Pros: I've had this bat for a couple of months now and the ball comes off really nice. Looks, neon all nice, and the grip works just fine. More and more guys on the team have noticed the pop and are grabbing the bat now when they step up to the plate.
Cons: To me the bat still feels tight. Can tell you how many swings it has but well over 100, 200 between cages and team use. Looking forward to full break in.
Also first balanced bat vs end loaded I've owned, next bat will likely try end loaded again, but sticking to balanced and giving it an honest shot.
