BEWARE- small barrel
This bat came to me looking very small. I thought it must be an illusion due to it being all black, and thinking that a 2 1/4" barrel is standard.
Well... my son used it in a game, and every time he went to bat, I kept thinking it looked like a toothpick!
I measured it... the barrel is 2" !!!!!! THIS IS NOT A STANDARD BARREL
I called HQ4sports, and they were not helpful. They only gave me the # to Louisville Slugger and would not stand behind this "variation".
I'm VERY disappointed. This is advertised as a 2 1/4" barrel- that's what it should be.
Proslight bat, but that's because it's a tiny barrel.
ConsThe barrel is much smaller than advertised. It is also shorter, but the barrel is a HUGE issue.
