Construction: 1 piece; injection molded plastic; medium hard plastic
Pros: Nice looking bat with a lot of upside, good distance, good pop. One piece construction makes the bat very rigid without compromising mass. 33″ length ensures that reach across the strike zone is adequate. Softer plastic makes this bat more forgiving than other similar bats.
Cons: Plastic isn’t quite as hard as the Louisville C271. Softer plastic means more wobble, and more give when hitting a ball. We encountered two different types of this bat in our search. Be sure to purchase the bat with: shiny, bright gold paint; a concave endcap; and an injection molding site (little hole) on the endcap, not on the handle end.
