One of the best wood bats on the market, if not the best! The highest quality bat & manufacturer. I only buy my sons the best equipment and the AP5 is by far their bat of choice. In the 2018 NCAA season; with a .350BA, 2nd in Conference in RBIs, First Team All Conference player / Conference Champs! (a wood bat conf.), 2- First Team All Regional;second base & 1- Second Team All Regional selection (out of three national polls)... after coming off a 2017 Summer Semi-Pro League Championship (DELCO LEAGUE-Oldest semi-pro league in the USA)... I think the results of using the Marucci AP5, speaks for themself! I only wished Marucci was around when I played in the 70's..
