"This bat exceeded all expectations! My son plays on a 13U travel team and had only used his wood bats for tee work. Took him hitting after he was saying he kept hitting cage bombs with it in practice. Low and behold, he was hitting balls just as far as he does with his $350 ($400 with taxes) composite bat! He swings a 31 drop 6 in this particular model. Can't wait to move up to a drop 3 with a bigger barrel! Thanks, Victus!!!"
